Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

Secure access service edge has quickly emerged as a hot topic in cybersecurity, but what exactly does it mean and why should organizations care? As cloud migration, BYOD adoption, and remote work have skyrocketed in prevalence, it has become increasingly apparent that organizations need to think differently about security. While legacy tools like firewalls are no longer equipped to handle the modern IT ecosystem, SASE platforms like Bitglass are built for this exact moment. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The core components of a SASE platform like Bitglass.
  • The functionality you need to secure cloud, web, and remote access use cases.
  • Architectural considerations you should keep in mind when comparing SASE vendors.

Is your defensive stack ready for a targeted attack?

With all the recent headlines, it seems the risk of ransomware has become an added certainty to the daily lives of Cybersecurity personnel. Adversaries are automating the initial stages of the cyber attack lifecycle in order to identify the best bang for their buck. How do organizations with limited resources even keep up? Adding another tool to the defensive stack just isn’t enough. How do you know it will reliably stand up against an actual threat? In this session, I will speak to specific techniques in identifying ransomware threats at different layers of the defensive stack that will help reduce risk & impact. Finally, we leverage the Pentera platform to automate a holistic view, emulating actual attacks to measure the resilience of all our efforts.

Hidden in Plain Sight: How Malware Delivers C2 Communications, Data Infiltration & Data Exfiltration using Normal DNS Queries

DNS is a more than just a “phone book”.  It is a communications protocol.  It is nearly 40 years old, and is foundational to the Internet.  Were you aware that there are many ways to attack, take down, and exploit this protocol for nefarious purposes?  Further, it has been overlooked as a security risk until recent years.  Also, while there are several ways to secure it, not all solutions are equal, and often are misunderstood.  We will be presenting one way that DNS is used throughout the lifespan of an attack and how you can secure your networks, today.

How to stop Ransomware BEFORE it starts.

Modern ransomware is not like ransomware of the past. In fact, it’s not even ransomware until it’s too late to prevent significant business impact. The good news is that seeing ransomware before it starts IS both possible and your best line of defense.  Please join me as I share how ransomware has changed, how to see it before it starts, and what I predict ransomware will exploit next.
