  • Enforcement & Containment with Segmentation Recorded: Dec 12 2018 55 mins
    Josh King, Director of Security Solutions; Mark Moretti Vice President of Infrastructure and Security
    You don't have to look far to find a current news story about ransomware taking down networks in record time, or a data breach involving millions of customer records by a malicious actor who has hid in an environment for months.

    In an "Assumption of Breach" world, we accept that it's statistically impossible to keep all the bad guys out. That inevitably at some point, we will receive that phone call or email that says it's happened to our organization. But that doesn’t mean we are powerless against it either. We have the tools and practices to help limit the impact that such an incident can have on our business, we just have to exercise them.

    Segmentation is one of those practices that has the ability to significantly impact your overall security posture, but it's impact depends on how well it's implemented. The industry has been using VLANs for segmentation for decades, but they are combat ineffective when it comes to stopping the spread of ransomware and other malicious threats.

    We need to look at more advanced capabilities like Data Center Next Generation Firewalls, Micro-Segmentation practices, Behavior Analytics, and even Network Access Control (NAC) among others to help us contain, mitigate, and eventually remediate the threats that face us.

    Join Josh King, Carousel's Director of Security Solutions to discuss what an assembly of the right mix of people, process, and technologies might look like to combat this evolving threat landscape.
