How to Become an All-Round Defender...the Secret Sauce

  • Justin Henderson & Ismael Valenzuela
  • Wednesday, April 3rd, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

In this ever evolving and fast-paced environment, a security professional must be versatile and possess an arsenal of skills to protect an organizationās critical data. You must be an all-round defender. What does this mean? This means that you wear many hats and that you are probably in charge of cloud security, endpoint security, network security, application security, and all things cyber. So where do you start? How do you not only be successful but thrive as an all-round defender?

Join Justin Henderson and Ismael Valenzuela, authors of the new SANS course Security 530, Defensible Security Architecture & Engineering, to learn how to successfully design, implement and tune a layered defense approach, balancing detection, prevention and response capabilities.

In this presentation you will learn what are some of the most common impediments to achieving a balance between network-centric and data-centric controls. This includes popular but often underutilized solutions like Next-Generation firewalls, flow data, cloud security and trying to protect custom applications.
