About this talk

Episode 3 of Keeping Up-to-Date with Your Network Security Micro-segmentation allows you to isolate workloads, and secure them individually. In a world that relies on computerization and automation, and in a world full of sophisticated cyber criminals, micro-segmentation is key for tightening your network security. The ability to tighten internal processes and procedures allows you to minimise the risk of threats, and also target breaches before they can disrupt your network. However, many businesses approach micro-segmentation in the wrong way, which can cause issues for multiple layers of your security. For example, not having efficiently trained staff, failing to map out existing application flows and failing to set up a firewall policy before beginning the process of micro-segmentation are all common challenges and mistakes made by security professionals on their micro-segmentation journey. Given the benefits of a micro-segmentation strategy, it is worth understanding how to navigate these common challenges, and move towards a more consolidated, secure network. In this session, we will discuss: - What micro-segmentation is and what it can do for your network - Why we need micro-segmentation now more than ever - The common mistakes made when implementing micro-segmentation, and how to avoid these common errors
