The realities of security and compliance have changed considerably since patch management faced its first big paradigm shift some years ago. At that time many organizations wrestled with the transition from manual patching and remediation to an automated process. Of course, nothing in security is ever static, so it is no surprise that patch management has continued to evolve since then. Though still automated, today’s best patch management tools and techniques are significantly different from their predecessors. In this whitepaper, Lumension Security’s Matt Mosher, Senior Vice President of the Americas, gives an historical perspective on how this evolution unfolded and why it is important for organizations to evolve their patch management technology in order to remain on top of increasing security attacks.
This paper explores the role of white box vs. black box testing. White box testing technologies have a definite but limited use and value. From a Web application security perspective it must be understood that significant blind spots come with white box testing. Ultimately white box testing is not sufficient to secure your applications: simply put organizations that rely solely on white box technologies will be exposed to vulnerabilities in their applications, thus making it an ineffectual method of testing real-world risks. This paper will demonstrate black box or dynamic testing is ultimately the appropriate solution for “truly” securing Web applications.

Imagine that you are in a meeting with several department heads discussing issues around enrollment. As people begin to share their thoughts, you quickly realize that each person in the room is working from conflicting information – and everyone thinks their information is correct. The group spends most of the meeting arguing over whose data and reports are correct rather than understanding the problem and making decisions. Sound familiar? When organizations have their data fragmented across many systems and departments, these situations are all too common. Without a single, trusted source of truth and easyto- use tools to interpret and understand the data, conversations are limited by everyone’s departmental perspectives and resources.
Banks have been using credit scoring models for over five decades, so managing the life cycle of models is nothing new. Most have had some kind of process in place to ensure the models they develop are robust, validated and monitored from a performance perspective and that decision makers have confidence in them. In recent times, however - partly in response to the credit crisis in 2008 - the discipline of model risk management (MRM) has become more formalized and rigorous, driving the need for enterprise-level model information management systems. The regulatory scrutiny being applied to them is intensifying and spreading globally, with US and European regulators leading the charge. For example, whereas regulators were previously more interested in the numbers they were provided, now more regulators want to have a core understanding of the models banks used to generate these numbers.
