Modern information security requires practitioners to defend environments and surfaces which are highly dynamic. With new security risks arising and constant changes to your system, point-in-time assessments  can’t keep up. That’s why you need to routinely assess your security through automated, continuous monitoring. 

Continuous monitoring and automation are buzzy words in the industry, but what do they really mean?  Monitoring and automation can be applied at various levels and layers in an environment in order to meet a wide variety of security and compliance objectives.

In this webinar, Matt Cooper, Senior Manager of Privacy, Risk, and Compliance at Vanta, and Rob Picard, Senior Manager of Security at Vanta, will detail common use cases for security and compliance monitoring and automation to enhance your security posture.
