Secure your Cloud Investment by Unlocking the Network as a Data Source
While the cloud may be a force multiplier for DevOps and IT Ops, for security teams, it can be a vulnerability. With SecOps taking the blame for stalled migration efforts, enterprises are recognizing the need to take a cloud-native approach to securing data and workloads rather than trying to retrofit old technology to new cloud security best practices. The cloud is proven to spur innovation and efficiency, but the speed at which new devices can be added—and new instances spun up—increases risk to data and applications. Traditional security tools focused on prevention, or those that rely on agents or logs for analysis, can’t keep up with the speed and scale of the cloud. They leave too many blind spots, add friction to development cycles, and slow down incident response. Without visibility into network traffic and the ability to analyze full packets, organizations are vulnerable to new and evolving threats, and security teams are forced to slow the pace of cloud migration.

The Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack showed the American people that cybersecurity lapses can have real impacts on critical infrastructure safety and continuity across the nation. The attack cut the flow of fuel to the East Coast, and other high-profile ransomware attacks followed in recent weeks, leaving IT leaders wondering if the steady stream of news-making cyber events will ever cease.
The idea that government and industry can stop ransomware and other escalating cyber threats isn’t a pipe dream, however.
Watch this exclusive webinar to hear from experts at CISA, Juniper Networks, ExtraHop, and Ping Identity who will dive deep into:
- Our nation’s current state of cybersecurity
- The impact of the Biden administration cybersecurity executive order and infrastructure plan
- How government and industry can coordinate to protect critical infrastructure from malicious cyber actors seeking financial reward or even more damaging outcomes
The Federal push for better cybersecurity has become a national priority as a result of the Colonial Pipeline attack. We hope you can join us for this important conversation about securing our critical infrastructure.

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) rely on brittle signatures and are a time drain, frequently called an alert canon. But, IDS is still a major part of your PCI DSS and other compliance stacks. Unfortunately, today’s attackers prefer to step around IDS by focusing on your users’ weaknesses rather than vulnerability exploits that IDS watches for. You need a new approach that makes your intrusion detection budgets deliver more than just compliance….one that encompasses ML behavioral analysis, spots lateral movement, and identifies encrypted attacks. Finally, an NG-IDS against modern threats.
Join ExtraHop security experts and Chris Krueger, from Coalfire Systems, Inc., to learn how Next-Gen intrusion detect technology can bridge IDS compliance and security gaps.

Cybersecurity professionals consistently place visibility at the top of their recognized needs list. But the definition of security visibility covers a wide range, often lacking measurable elements that can help predict risk reduction if visibility is improved.
On this webcast, SANS Research Director Barbra Filkins and SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore will discuss the SANS 2021 Visibility Report with sponsor representatives.
Dirk-jan Mollema, Core researcher of Active Directory and Azure AD Fox-IT // Jeff Deininger, Principal Cloud SE, ExtraHop
In larger enterprise environments multiple Active Directory forests are often in use to separate different environments or parts of the business. To enable integration between the different environments, forests trusts are set up. The goal of this trust is to allow users from the other forest to authenticate while maintaining the security boundary that an Active Directory forest offers.
In 2018, this boundary was broken through default delegation settings and Windows features with unintended consequences. In 2019 the security boundary was once again established through a set of changes in Active Directory. This research introduces a vulnerability in Kerberos and forest trusts that allows attackers to break the trust once again.
The talk will provide technical details on how Kerberos works over forest trusts and how the security boundary is normally enforced. Then the talk will discuss a flaw in how AD forest trusts operate and how this can be combined with a vulnerability in the Windows implementation of Kerberos to take over systems in a different forest (from a compromised trusted forest).
The talk will be accompanied by a proof-of-concept and a demonstration of abusing the vulnerability.

Workforce DNS usage grew by 250% during the pandemic, making DNS a choice pathway for attackers to hide. SUNBURST, an advanced and sophisticated supply chain attack that exposed 18,000 unsuspecting companies, used innovative ways to exploit DNS. How can you ensure that your security stack will catch the next attack hiding in DNS?
In this webcast, author and analyst Deb Radcliff sits down with ExtraHop network security expert Tanner Payne to discuss ExtraHop research insights and her recently published white paper, SolarWinds SUNBURST DNS Abuse Tactics. The talk will include DNS exploit detection demos and cover:
- Novel ways SUNBURST exploited DNS.
-How it used malicious DLLs that looked like they belonged to SolarWinds and encoded unique identifiers into the DNS queries to identify high-value targets.
-Why traditional security missed it and why the network detection and response (NDR) can catch the next one.

The temporary shutdown of Colonial Pipeline––a critical pipeline providing nearly half of the gasoline supply for the East Coast of the United States––just over a week ago brought sophisticated ransomware bursting back into the spotlight. Panicked drivers hoarded gasoline as prices skyrocketed, and security teams were pummeled with the question: "What are you doing so this doesn't happen to us?"
Join Mark Bowling, VP of Security Response at ExtraHop and 20-year veteran of the FBI cybercrimes division, Mike Campfield, and Josh Snow as they discuss:
- Hallmarks of the DarkSide ransomware variant, including both exfiltration and encryption.
- How to detect early indicators of compromise and respond before it gets out of control.
- How industrial control systems and operational technology fit into the security landscape and what President Biden's announcement means for future attacks.
- How to build a security posture that's both resistant and resilient to sophisticated ransomware operations and other advanced threats.
Mark will also share lessons learned from his experience in the FBI and as a cybersecurity consultant on the best practices that set organizations apart when it comes to thwarting ransomware.

Cybersecurity has never been easy, and as enterprises expand their footprints in the cloud, they often run into issues and friction that can weaken security and leave them vulnerable to advanced threats. Cloud environments are highly dynamic, and many security tools struggle to match the scale and elasticity the cloud provides. Security teams need to regain the advantage over attackers, and network data offers an elegant solution to improving observability, threat detection, and response.
In this webinar we’ll discuss 5 ways to think about cloud security from a network perspective:
- Know your datasource
+ Flow logs vs packets
+ NDR vs Logs vs EDR
- Investigate and hunt threats
+ Take advantage of the power of forensics
- Detect and immediately respond to advanced threats
You’ll also get a quick demo highlighting how these 3 key components of stronger security can be put into action in your cloud environment. Learn how the power of Network Detection and Response solutions can help you reclaim the upper hand in your cloud environments.
Cybersecurity teams are working to extend detection and response technologies from the endpoint to many other parts of the enterprise IT environment, including the network, the cloud, and managed services. But how do these “XDR” technologies work in real operating environments? How do they tie together, and what are the challenges in implementing them? In this Dark Reading webinar, experts discuss the real-life implementation issues surrounding emerging detection and response technologies. You’ll learn how these emerging technologies can be integrated with your existing cybersecurity tools, and how XDR technology might affect your cybersecurity operations and processes.
