IoT Security & Indicators of Compromise (IOC): An Evolving Approach to Network-Based Security
Date / Time: Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 11:00 a.m. New York/ 4 p.m. London

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.

Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
