Preventing cyber attacks; lost cause or is it possible?

Presented by

Kierk Sanderlin, Head of Engineering & Check Point Security Evangelist

About this talk

Breaches are on the rise and some leading cyber security voices are saying the best course of action is to focus on detection and response. The argument is attackers only need to be successful once with their attacks to gain a foothold and compromise the network or endpoint. Other cyber security voices are saying we need a prevention-first mindset that focuses on blocking threats before they can infect a network or host. Join us as we discuss the practice of actually preventing cyber attacks vs. just detecting them. In this session you will: • Understand why prevention-first is a solid security strategy • Hear about why there is a need to balance detection with prevention when it comes to budget • Find out how to reduce the noise and distractions that many cyber security incidents cause • Learn practical steps you can take to focus on prevention-first
