The Top 5 Wi-Fi Security Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Attend our Wi-Fi security presentation and see how to avoid the top 5 deployment mistakes that leave managers and their networks open to compromise.

As employees at all levels default to Wi-Fi to access the corporate network, controlling who can join – and what they can do – has become business critical. The rise of low sophistication ‘things’ also rapidly increases the attack surface – with rising popularity of IoT hacks.

So how do different security models stand up to this new reality, and how secure is your connection? Bring your questions and join our speaker to cover:

  • The top 5 Wi-Fi security mistakes
  • Viewing exactly what’s happening on your network
  • Building an authentication and encryption model that doesn’t force user workarounds
    • Utilizing Private PSK technology that gives you the ability to easily onboard and identify devices, without security or complexity concerns
  • Using identity and context to tighten up gaps around ‘things’, BYOD, and user groups in traditional models

Michael Dalton

Senior Identity Engineer


Business-Driven Security, Identity and the New Age of Risk

In the constantly changing landscape of cyber risk, security and risk management teams (including executives and board members) are increasingly forced to take ownership of and accountability relating to digital risks. Yet, many lack the critical knowledge to make effective risk management decisions and incorporate them into their overall business strategy. This inevitably leads to security strategies which are ineffective and reactionary. This presentation will outline RSA’s Business-Driven Security strategy, and will focus particularly on the importance of leveraging identity and access management (IAM) as a key tool in the battle against adversaries both within and outside your environment.

Speaker’s Bio:
