The Need for Invisibility over the public Internet

Cyber security vulnerabilities are being leveraged by cyber criminals at an ever increase pace and level of sophistication, inflicting damage on networks and network resources world-wide.

Typical approaches to inhibiting these attacks have not resulted in the protection needed for critical asset security and privacy. With the expanded use of cloud computing and the significant move to remote operating environments, the public internet has become new enterprise network.  The internet was never designed for security.  Therefore, there is a need to look at novel approaches to eliminating the risk of operating on the internet. There is a need to make users, devices, information, and critical networks resources invisible on the public internet.

5 Critical Pillars of the SOC of the Future

This year has seen nearly everything change to some degree—including within the Security Operations Center (SOC). Not only are we seeing a fast-evolving and surging threat landscape with which we must keep up, but we’re also contending with the business’s shifting priorities, budgets, and headcounts—all of which impact how the SOC can operate. To ensure we can continue to stave off threats in this new world, we must make sure the foundational elements of our SOC are in place:

  • Threat intelligence
  • Threat research
  • Detection engineering
  • Investigation
  • Incident handling

This session will cover considerations for CISOs and infosec leaders within each of these five critical pillars. We’ll explore how organizations can make the most of limited resources and close skills gaps by carefully balancing their internal team’s competencies with outside expertise. Learn the steps you can take to establish a modern, efficient, and ultimately successful SOC of the future.

Stop Repetitive MFA Requests with the Power of AI and Machine Learning

In today’s world, CISO’s around the world have deployed MFA as a means to counter credential theft. This leads to introducing endless MFA prompts throughout the IT ecosystem whether that be a cloud service, perimeter network device or an internal resource. In this session you will learn how AI and Machine Learning can dramatically reduce the number of times a user is ever asked to provide MFA. You’ll also learn about:

  • What a user’s authentication journey would look like by using machine learning
  • How it can drastically reduce account take over
  • Why traditional MFA/SSO context engines provide a false sense of security
  • Why it’s important to consider user behavior during an authentication request
