The Security Onion - A Layered Approach To Security

Presented by

Brian Honan, Principal Consultant

About this talk

Despite investing heavily in their security defenses many organizations are still finding their systems regularly compromised. The problem these organizations face is they are focusing too much on the defensive controls at their network perimeter in the false belief that this makes it difficult for their systems to be compromised. However, time and time again we see that once the perimeter controls fail attackers have easy access to the organization's sensitive assets. This presentation will provide attendees with a practical guide on how to secure their corporate assets by implementing a multi-layered approach to security incorporating the key cornerstones of people, process and technology. With this multi-layered approach should one security layer fail the other layers can compensate and continue to secure key organizational assets. Today's threat landscape and attacks are constantly evolving and it is essential that organizations ensure their security controls evolve to counter these threats. The attendee will be shown how to take a risk based approach to develop multiple security layers to deal with the current threat landscape and how to ensure each layer can compensate for another should there be a compromise. Relying on one layer of security at the perimeter is no longer an option, developing adaptive security controls at various layers is essential to securing systems in today's environment.
