SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls 1-4

The SANS SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls are an industry and (for the most part) vendor neutral set of controls that organizations are encouraged to implement to ensure they are cognizant of security issues and can respond accordingly. This episode deals exclusively with the first 4 controls in-depth, so to not overwhelm listeners with what is shaping up to be a nearly 3 hour podcast.

If you want to discuss how Advanced Persistent Security can help you implement the SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls, please contact Advanced Persistent Security Sales.
