Combating asymmetric threats with new cyber defense strategies
This Webinar has concluded. Stay tuned for more such Webinars.

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT
With today’s asymmetric, advanced persistent threats, conventional cybersecurity strategies are falling short. A recent study found that nearly 97% of the organizations within the study group had been breached. Determined attackers are breaking through classic defenses with a mix of technical expertise, sheer cunning, subterfuge, and persistence.
At the same time, cloud adoption and BYOD are pushing the network perimeter well beyond organizational boundaries. Keeping business operating efficiently while protecting the enterprise from external threats calls for new steps.
One approach to contemporary threats is layered defense that employs a combination of endpoint protection, application protection, network protection, and end-user controls. Looking at security tools like firewalls, ACLs, web proxies, or IDS/IPS in isolation is turning out to be woefully inadequate. The idea is that no single layer by itself can provide sufficient protection. However, combining these technologies can slow down attackers so that they can be thwarted from achieving their objectives.
To sum up, cybersecurity today has a large number of fast moving parts. It is only through an agile yet comprehensive approach that one can stay ahead of threat actors. There are no cookie cutter solutions, no silver bullets! Layered security and defense in depth are examples of umbrella strategies that help manage the complexities of current cybersecurity risks.
During this webcast, we will:
- Demystify some of the terminology underlying layered security and defense in depth
- Walk you through contemporary defense strategies being adopted in the enterprise
- Shed light on the strengths and more importantly the weaknesses of security solutions
- Present a risk mitigation framework that is inspired by layered defense and defense-in-depth
Included in the event will be an exciting discussion where our panel of experts will examine today’s risks from the context of their several experiences: what has worked and what hasn’t when it comes to raising protection levels.
Join us and learn about how you can better shield yourself in this age of targeted cybersecurity threats.
