Karachi, February 8, 2021: In view of the on-going COVID-19 related global emergencies and the increasing pace of digitalization, the notions of ‘ proactive risk management’ and ‘attack kill chain’ have become increasingly pertinent & critical.
An agile enterprise IT is exposed to cyber risk, adversarial attacks and similar exposures resulting from the dynamic nature of the underlying critical infrastructure and services the organization has to offer to its internal and external customers.
This constant change poses challenges for security professionals in understanding and assessing the level of risk their organization is exposed to at any given moment. NBP recently went live with Rapid7 – Threat & Exposure Management solution which enables the bank to be on-point with cybersecurity validation, testing, remediation and response enabling a proactive stance when it comes to cybersecurity.
Mr. Amin Manji SEVP/CTO National Bank of Pakistan on the event remarked that “The Bank has a phenomenal team commendably supported by our partners that enable us to continuously enhance and strengthen our cyber security posture with reliability, scalability and agility offering our customers a secure digital experience. Rapid7’s Threat and Exposure Management capability enables us to preempt adversary tradecraft and manage vulnerabilities proactively. The Bank is committed to enhancing itsthreat-informed defense against attacker exploits to protect against, detect, and neutralize cyber-attacks proactively.”
The Threat and Exposure Management solution will not only enable National Bank of Pakistan to identify vulnerabilities and potential gaps in its underlying services infrastructure but will enable it to perform security validations on its web applications, systems, networks, ATMs and other critical infrastructural endpoints. Rapid7’s Threat and Exposure Management solution is built to anticipate these shifts in the
way modern IT environments should be secured. It will offer the Bank insights into potential cyber risk, extend security umbrella across the enterprise, and contribute to shared progress amongst technical teams and management with key risk indicators pertaining to vulnerabilities and their potential to eventuate in the form of a cyberattack.

With AppSpider on your side (or, rather, all of your sides), you’ll be able to scan all the apps today and always be ready for whatever comes next.
