    Adam Kerns, Managing Principal, Commercial Services: Product Development, Coalfire

    Doug Hudson, Senior Director, Cyber Risk Advisory, Coalfire

I am speaking primarily of the top-level enterprises, but even smaller companies and less tech-oriented companies often have a hard time securing their infrastructure. If you are a widget supplier with a hundred employees, it’s hard—maybe impossible—to dedicate a full-time resource to things like patching, firewalls, identity and access management, and intrusion detection and incident response. The money just isn’t there.
