Anticipate and Prevent Cyber Attack Scenarios Before They Occur

No one wants to be the next cyber casualty. Collectively, organizations spend an enormous amount of resources deploying and managing security solutions to block malware, protect data, and keep critical business services operating.

Yet most organizations remain inadequately protected against evolving and dangerous cyber threats. In this session, we will learn to recognize common network attack scenarios and mitigate the combination of misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, access policy violations and other security gaps that can be exploited by sophisticated attackers.

High-profile breaches at Epsilon, Sony, and other enterprise and government networks have dominated the news lately, raising awareness of the need to design effective security strategies against sophisticated attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Many companies struggle with where to begin to develop an effective plan of cyber defense.

During this session we will walk the audience through several attack scenarios using a visual attack explorer tool, highlighting the combination of security gaps that are often used and how to prevent them. Network modeling, vulnerability analysis, access path analysis, and attack simulation will all be introduced and we will show how these analytical tools can be used to quickly and automatically find exposed areas of a network.

The session will center on reviewing real-world attack techniques used in recent attacks and data breaches. We will then talk about how to recognize security gaps, compare attack scenarios and define remediation alternatives. Attendees will learn how to prevent assaults on their network infrastructure from occurring by taking proactive measures and using an automated and sustained approach to risk and vulnerability management.
