Securing your organization and containing the insider threat 

Despite increasing investment in the cybersecurity market, we continue to see a rise in data breaches and their related costs, specifically those relating to the insider threat (accidental loss and malicious insider). Despite these types of incidents contributing approximately 50% of all breaches, CIO focus remains on the external threat.

In this presentation, we will question whether a new approach to data security needs to be applied: one that recognizes data security can’t be tackled in silo and instead a holistic more strategic approach must be taken to protect and secure data throughout its lifecycle in order to contain the insider threat.

Network Access Control (NAC) 101 – Transforming Network Security through Visibility, Control & Response

Mobile devices, cloud technology, IoT and virtual work alternatives have changed how organizations operate. With over 21 billion new devices accessing networks by 2020 according to Gartner, how can organizations prepare today for the increase in devices without undermining the security posture?

A strong perimeter defense is no longer sufficient to prevent cyber threats.  Organizations need to address the entire security lifecycle to adequately protect digital assets and intellectual property, even as network access grows.  This presentation will address the evolving security threat landscape, cover the three critical aspects of network security – visibility, control and automated response to augment existing security controls, and provide tips and best practices to shrink your attack surface and secure your network now and for the future.

Stop Attackers in their Tracks: How to Incorporate Smart Detection Strategies

Attackers leverage a variety of tools to break into networks and expand their footprint. LightCyber’s Behavioral Attack Detection platform educates you on the tools that are used to perform command and control, reconnaissance, lateral movement and data exfiltration. Using these tools, attackers can remain undetected for months.

Attend an informative presentation to gain a quantitative view of attack tools based on the findings from LightCyber’s Cyber Weapons Report. You’ll probably be surprised how little of the attack tools are malware.

During the session, LightCyber security expert, Steve Costolo will explain:

  • The top malware, hacking, admin, and remote desktop tools associated with attacks and risky behavior
  • How each type of attack tool maps back to stages in the Cyber Kill Chain
  • How LightCyber Magna Behavioral Attack Detection can help you find active attackers in your network

Keeping the Enterprise Always On with IT Resilience

The Impact of DDoS Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from consumer-facing financial and news websites, to internally-oriented employee intranet links, and present a major challenge in today’s cloud-based world to making sure people can access important information and mission-critical applications. Arbor will discuss the misconceptions & facts about Modern day DDoS attacks and the Advance Threat landscape and how they can help customers mitigate their risk.

Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT, helps secure the world’s largest enterprise and service provider networks from these DDoS attacks and advanced threats. Its advanced threat solution delivers complete network visibility through a combination of packet capture and NetFlow technology, enabling the rapid detection and mitigation of attack campaigns, malware and malicious insiders.

We Lost the Battle Against Intrusions — Are We Left to Raise Our Hands in Defeat? 

Enterprises are pouring billions of dollars into preventing threat actors from infiltrating the organization. Yet, the rising level of breaches shows that dedicated threat actors will penetrate the organization. Perhaps then the problem is not a technological one, but is rather one of strategy in dealing with cyber-threats?

In this session, we’ll propose a new defense approach. This strategy assumes that the environment is already compromised and focuses on preventing the real risk to the enterprise: the actual exfiltration and hijacking of data. We’ll show how adopting such a strategy enables organizations to streamline security and align with the business operations as they investigate and remediate a threat.

This session will discuss:

  • New and effective strategies to combat today’s advanced threats;
  • Removing the OpEx associated with security solutions;
  • Real-life cases of successful enterprises challenging their security status quo.
