Threat Intelligence and Layered Security in the Post-Target Breach Era

The term “Threat Intelligence” is getting a lot of buzz these days, but what does it mean? And, more importantly, how can it help protect your network? In this presentation, we answer these questions within the context of a layered security approach that integrates Threat Intelligence with existing security methodologies. We also use real-world examples to examine how Threat Intelligence improves a network’s defenses at the perimeter and allows administrators to gain more visibility on the inside.

Counting Down: How to Quickly, Easily and Cost-Effectively Comply with NIST SP800-171

Chris Westphal
Head of Product Marketing

Stop Cyber Threats With Adaptive Micro-Segmentation

Virtualization, the cloud, and the promise of containers have evolved the data center, bringing better application delivery and cost reduction. With these benefits come new risks that include increased East/West traffic and the potential for new cyber threats. Adaptive micro-segmentation is transforming and improving security inside the data center and clouds while speeding up app delivery.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • How adaptive micro-segmentation enables security anywhere (on premises, AWS, Azure, etc.) on anything (bare metal, vSphere/KVM/XEN, containers), while eliminating app delivery delays caused by traditional security approaches.
  • How customers are using adaptive micro-segmentation to instantly protect high-value apps, separate dev from prod with one rule, take existing security policies to the cloud, and more.
  • How live visibility of application traffic and dependencies is making security dead simple for IT operations and security teams.

Business-Driven Security

Despite all the money we have invested in security, it’s still too difficult to put security details in business context fast enough. Both security and business leaders want to understand to what degree security incidents impact business continuity, intellectual property, and damage to their reputation, among other things. At RSA we are calling this the “Gap of Grief”. First you need to understand the problem before you can assume to solve it. We will dive into the issues and offer some ideas to close the gap.
