Breakout Session: More Perimeter Than Meets the Eye — Edge Security Best Practices

Lately, there has been a massive shift in focus by security solution providers from edge technologies to identifying insider threats. Detecting insider threats is important; however, that doesn’t mean you should stop enhancing your edge capabilities. For starters, 90% of all insider threats phone out of the network making the edge an effective insider threat detection tool as well! Also, anything found within the network should be blacklisted by the edge so the threat doesn’t have a second chance to compromise the network. These are just some of the best practices covered in this talk that matured security architectures can provide. Joey Muniz is the author of several books including best practices for running a Security Operations Center (SOC) and an upcoming Cisco Press title on Digital Forensics.
