About this talk

With the second anniversary of the Equifax breach not so long ago and the fact that we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. There was a lot of new information that came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach…. Did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realise what had happened. On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever as today the Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilise encryption. During this webinar, Ollie Sheridan will talk about: - How TLS encryption has become a threat vector - Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively perform detection - How to make sure your detection tools are working at their greatest capacity without the latency introduced by decryption
