The Dynamic World of Threat Detection, Containment & Response

Regardless of size, network security is a top priority for all organizations. Networks are more vulnerable than ever due to the inherent risk of facilitating remote access in conjunction with the volume of traffic and the speed at which that traffic is flowing. As organizations migrate from 1Gb to 10Gb and beyond, network security tools struggle to keep up with these increasing connection speeds as the tools may not be designed to process the volume of packet traffic going through the protected link. Therefore, it is vital to implement security architectures and strategies that not only prevent security breaches, but can also dynamically react to potential threats and scale to meet future needs.

Let’s Get Right to the Endpoint: Leveraging Endpoint Data to Expose, Validate, Triage, and Remediate Security Breaches

The ultimate target of any attacker – laptops, desktops, servers, and the data residing on them—is currently the biggest blind spot for information-security operations and the greatest area of risk. These endpoints are not only hotbeds of valuable data and activity that can provide actionable insights into the hidden security risks threatening your organization’s systems, but also where you need visibility and control the most once a breach is detected.

Join Guidance Software and learn how to:

  • Leverage endpoint data for Big Data security analytics, providing security insights into hidden, nascent, or undetected threats
  • Reduce mean time-to-detection, response and recovery via integration with detection technology
  • Prioritize response based on the existence of sensitive information, validation of a detected event, or by exposing additional compromised machines through similar file analysis
  • Quickly and confidently triage and assess the impact of any security incident

Key Steps of Protection for a First Line of Defense - Defending Against DDoS Attacks and Unwanted Traffic

With the number of successful attacks on the rise, it is evident that firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and traditional security infrastructures are not equipped to combat them.  These technologies were not built to stop DDoS attacks, undesirable behaviors, advanced evasion attacks and other unwanted malicious traffic targeting your infrastructure.

Corero Network Security, an organization’s First Line of Defense, is the leading provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense.

The problem with Privilege –  identifying the risk of privileged account misuse in the modern enterprise.

Privileged Accounts are a vulnerability that is built-in to every device and application that exists within your enterprise.  They are the main vector for attacks whether internal or external, meaning that securing and monitoring access to them is becoming the number one priority for corporations whatever their size.   This presentation will examine how these accounts are exploited, where they are found and the considerations that should be taken into account when embarking on a program to secure them.   With real world examples  and examinations of attacks and exploits, it should provide a valuable insight into this extremely current topic.

Dynamic Security against Modern Threats in a Virtualized Environment

Securing the network has never been more challenging.  First, threats are increasingly targeted, fast-moving and evasive.  Second, the computing environment is constantly changing with initiatives like virtualization and BYOD.  This presentation reviews these challenges and offers approaches to network security that keeps pace with both the dynamic computing and threat landscapes.

Are we still Secure?

PRISM has been disclosed and now we live in a new security concise world. We always thought this was happening, but now we know exactly how it is happening. Are we still secure? Can we trust our encryption? We will discuss the use of standards based federation, open source encryption, and limiting the exposure of your end users.

Wi-Fi Optimization: Every day, another 4 million devices are activated. Are you ready?

The mobile enterprise challenges are mounting: enabling users simple and secure access to the network, ensuring applications run smoothly, and building sufficient capacity to handle unpredictable usage and future growth. A superior level of Wi-Fi design is now required—something shown to be lacking by a recent Gartner report: “By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of a lack of proper planning.”  A clear indication of the problem is that a typical wireless user is provisioned with less than 5% of the bandwidth of a typical wired user. Wi-Fi Optimization includes designing for: the user, device, application, spectrum and capacity. This session will examine critical design components to ensure predictable performance, even under heavy loads.

Embracing Mobility 
Liberate Employees to Work Their Way – and Empower Your Business

The growing use of smartphones and tablets along with
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives are fundamentally changing the game.  However, 76% of IT leaders see security as a barrier to enabling employees to choose their own devices, technology and applications at will. You have the unique opportunity to empower your organization by helping it embrace the new possibilities of mobility and its promise of collaboration, productivity, and innovation – without compromising on security.
