IoT Security & Indicators of Compromise (IOC): An Evolving Approach to Network-Based Security

Speakers
Patrick Donegan, Chief Analyst, Heavy Reading

Tyson Macaulay, Chief Security Strategist; Vice President, Security Services, Fortinet

As more devices are connected to enterprise networks, the average security profile and baseline of the endpoint is rapidly decreasing. In a recent AT&T report, a majority of IoT deployments will be over 1,000 devices, providing a substantial new attack surface and risk profile. Many IoT devices have minimal security functions built in, if at all, and are supplied by a huge and growing range of vendors with unknowable supply chains. Risks will come in the form of hardware and software vulnerabilities and defects, cloud-service vulnerabilities and new forms of threat agents. With that, additional security capabilities and compensating controls are going to be needed.

This webinar will discuss some of the evolving network security controls that can mitigate some of these IoT device security threats. As well as considering the role of smart gateways, SDN and NFV, this talk will focus on evolving approaches to improve network analytics, segmentation, micro-segmentation and pico-segmentation. We will focus closely on the key role that network-based indicators of compromise (IOCs) can play in building an advanced analytics solution. Are network IOCs really all they're cracked up to be? Join us for a balanced, thought-provoking discussion on threat and risk management using network controls, including IOCs, to mitigate an increasingly unreliable endpoint security profile.
