As attacker techniques shift, organizations must have a robust strategy to address both insider and external threat actors. While the recent April program focused on insider threats, this session will focus on preventing and detecting advanced attacks at the perimeter. In these sessions, various presenters will cover emerging technologies and approaches to perimeter protection as well as key considerations for identifying and implementing the next generation of applicable technology.
