The Three Milestones for Future-Proof Cybersecurity Strategy

CyberSecurity is a holistic and 'equilibrium-like' of protection, detection, and response. Over the past few years, we've started seeing Threat Intelligence products and services. Security operation teams are consolidating them into their arsenal as the reason for two trends in computing. 

First, companies practically have nearly lost control of our computing environment. Our data is mostly held in the cloud by other services providers companies. Moreover, our networks likely be outsourced and security tools are disjointed. This situation makes the response far more complicated and involved manual tasks because we might not have visibility into all parts of our critical network infrastructures and no automation and integration framework to quickly prevent successful cyber-attacks.

Second, attacks are getting more sophisticated. The rise of APTs (advanced persistent threats), ransomware, crypto jacking - attacks that specifically target for reasons other than pure financial theft - brings with it a new variety of attacker, which requires a different threat model. The situation is getting worse as hacking becomes a more integral part of geopolitics, unrelated networks are increasingly collateral damaged in nation-state fights. These ever-increasing number of cyber-attacks requires the integrated cybersecurity platform and powerful machine learning to detect, analyse, predict, automate and defend against the cyber threats in nearly real-time. 

In this session, we discuss the concept of cyber threat intelligence and its main challenges and opportunities for 2019 toward future-proof cybersecurity strategy, and then briefly introduce the integrated security platform which can addresses the current difficulties of disjointed tools and how to leverage threat intelligence to prevent latest cyber-attacks and use security automation as much as possible. 

Evolving Your Security Operation to Keep Pace with Digital Risk

Today’s Digital world has changed, and the traditional perimeter may not exist for many organization because now, users, data, and applications are everywhere. Your organization might have adopted SaaS applications, which are outside the control of the IT team, applications are often deployed in the public cloud where we see many organisations using multiple cloud providers at the same time. Furthermore, your users are continuing to access services from anywhere, whether they are in branch offices or completely mobile. With this ramifications, you may have a lot of security tools running in your network, cloud, and endpoint. From security operation point of view, it is already exhausting to manage several security devices like firewalls, IDS/IPS, web proxies, antivirus on emails and endpoints. When an security incident happened, it is very daunting task to correlate all information from different tools and from different technology providers and require manual action to quickly deliver security protections.

In this session, we will explain 3 steps that security operation must follow to keep bad guys out and take your SOC to the next level toward Next Generation SOC where we can help you prevent successful cyber-attacks, automate where possible and quickly consume security innovation at rapid pace in this digital era. 

Best Practices for Secure Deployments in Google Cloud

For many organizations, the cloud has become the main – if not the only – route to market for new application development and deployment. It’s easy to see why, Cloud environments afford greater agility and scalability, higher performance, and faster access to innovative technologies, all of which help businesses maintain a competitive edge.

Today, most data and applications now reside in multiple clouds spanning infrastructure, platform and security as a service – IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Unfortunately, many businesses are still saddled with legacy products that don’t work in the cloud or point products that don’t communicate with each other, while some enterprises rely solely on cloud vendor-supplied security. Confidently accelerating your move to the cloud requires consistent, automated protections across your multi-cloud deployments to prevent data loss and business interruption. We can help you reduce security fragmentation and successfully manage risk in the cloud.

In this session, you will understand the shared responsibility model in cloud, and how Palo Alto Networks can address those challenges with an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause security breaches while enabling your organization to achieve consistent, frictionless protection for all your cloud environments.

Security Operating Platform Show Time!

Cybersecurity defence has to be able to gain balance in the asymmetric war with the adversaries. Adversaries has been using every resource that easily available, and every new emerging technology to break in and get your crown jewels they are aiming for. While security engineers, sitting in the dark facing handful of shrieking alerts with no context coming from disjointed point products, getting overwhelmed by manual response needed to be made. Don’t be that guy!

Now it is time to change and to embrace a new approach of closely integrated technology leveraging the power of Cloud, Analytics and Automation as the spears and shields for enterprise defenders.

In this session you will see how our security technologies, with network security, cloud delivered protections, endpoint protection, rich threat intelligence and threat hunting capabilities, work in conjunction to enforce automated protections for each level of threat risks to deliver a consistent protection across network, cloud and endpoint.

Finally, security that actually works!

Is Your Mobile Device and Internet of Things Secured? Let's Strengthening BYOD and IoT with Integrated Security Approach

In this modern era, mobile devices - Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Internet of Things (IoT) have been used widely in the company. Users can evade traditional security architectures with the use of several mobile devices to have access within the network. IT security team has no visibility about who the users are, what devices that they use, and what application that they open. IoT on the other hand are installed via non IT personnel like CCTV Cameras It become the nightmare to the team because of the shadow IT conditions. Despite of the flexibility and ease of usage, mobile devices and IoTs have some drawbacks which must be seriously solved by IT security team because of the lack of control and monitoring. Palo Alto Networks and Aruba Networks has joint validated design approach to make sure that your network secured by offering great visibility about the users, devices, and applications. Also, it can achieve availability, security, and performance.

Building a Zero Trust Security in the Data Center and Cloud

The modern data center has ever-increasing demands for throughput and performance, and Enterprises are in the journey to move workload from on-prem data center to many places in private/public cloud. The Trend  is showing that there is a shifting  from building legacy applications on physical or VMs to micro services, containers, server-less architecture, and adoption of DevOps. The speed to deploy these services is a key success in Digital Transformation to stay ahead and winning the competition. But how about security services ? Are you able to mitigate all kind of security threats without losing the business.

In this session, you will learn macro and micro-segmentation with Arista Networks and how to achieve agility, automation, and as well as security protection seamlessly in data center and private/public cloud. With Arista Cloud Vision, you can achieve simplified policy definition, cloud agnostic, automated security enforcement to get consistent security across all private and public cloud.

Fueling the Future with Data

The explosion of data in today’s digital economy has resulted a fundamental shift from using data to run the business. Now, Data is a new currency of great business outcomes and successful initiatives. Business acceleration through data analytics leads to lowered costs, reduced risk, and accelerated innovation, all with the predictive insights gained by data analytics. In addition, data retention is also a high priority for enterprise organizations. In most companies, IT is responsible not only for the integrity of the data, but also for adherence to industry policies and government regulations for the retention of data. NetApp has the holistic data management strategy that can help you to manage your massive unstructured data growth, to place content in the right  location, at the right time and the right storage tier to accelerate the delivery of new services
