Onboarding Personal Devices to Corporate Networks

Many IT organizations are being asked to allow personal devices onto corporate networks.  Unlike corporate-issued devices that are well-managed and under IT’s control, this new Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiative introduces a unique set of security challenges that require a balance of flexibility, visibility, security.

This presentation will explain the concept of a “BYOD Blueprint” and lessons learned from onboarding personal devices to over 800 networks around the world.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle of the Malnet Threat and Botnet Infections

The Vicious Cycle of Malnets
In 2012, Blue Coat expects malware distribution infrastructures will be responsible for more than two- thirds of all malicious cyber-attacks.  Malnets (malware networks) are extensive infrastructures embedded in the Internet and designed to deliver mass market attacks to the largest possible audience on a continuous basis. Hear the details of Blue Coat Systems latest 2012 Security Report and learn why stopping the attacks using traditional zero-day defenses is a losing proposition.  Learn how cyber-criminals have created a vicious cycle of malware attacks and why you need new solutions in order to protect your users and break this vicious cycle.  In this session you learn:

  • What threat vectors are being exploited by cyber-criminals to target their attacks
  • Why the 'whack-a-mole' defense strategy just doesn't work against todays attacks
  • Why 'zero-day' defense is insufficient and why you need negative-day protection
  • Where malnet infrastructures are located and hide and why they are nearly impossible to eradicate

People are the new perimeter
The challenges of enabling your mobile workforce in the post PC era

The mobile workforce represents a huge shift in IT infrastructure, and as a result creates a number of ripple effect changes in how security and authentication needs to be delivered. Users expect devices to handle personal use cases as seamlessly as enterprise use cases; they are being trained not to expect strong authentication challenges when accessing enterprise resources, and more and more will start to perform most major productivity tasks on tablets and Smartphones.
During this presentation, Chris Corde, Director of Corporate Strategy at RSA, the Security division of EMC, will talk about today's IT choices and strong authentication options presented against the backdrop of the mobility landscape.  This presentation will address:

  • Technology market trends and changes
  • The various ways in which mobile security is being handled today
  • A view into how mobile authentication needs to be delivered differently than traditional IT approaches

Chris Corde is the Director of Corporate Strategy for RSA, the Security Division of EMC. Chris focuses on long term disruptive opportunities for RSA, including cloud, mobile, and advanced threats. He has been with RSA since 2008 when he joined to lead product marketing for RSA’s Application Security portfolio, specifically its encryption, tokenization, and key management business.
Prior to RSA, Chris worked as a Practice Manager in EMC Consulting where he was responsible for offer development in EMC’s Data Center Networking practice, a critical piece of EMC’s overall strategy around virtualization and networking which now forms the VCE coalition. He holds his MBA from Boston College’s Carroll School of Business, as well as an MS in Computer Science from New York University’s Courant Institute and a BA in Computer Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
