Shoestring Virtualization - Reducing the Risk to Small Business Data from Compromised Remote Networks

  • Christopher Jarko - Master's Degree Candidate
  • Wednesday, February 10th, 8:15pm - 8:55pm

Many modern business professionals travel and remotely access their company's servers and data while on the road. This typically requires the traveler to connect from a network beyond their company's control. The most common method of mitigating risk is to use Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to establish a secure "tunnel" through the Internet, but a VPN may not be enough. This presentation - geared towards smaller companies with less robust IT support - will present one option for isolating company data from a hostile remote environment.

Speaker Bio: Christopher Jarko is the Plans Branch Chief at the U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Joint Cyber Center. He is a relative newcomer to the cyberspace domain, beginning as a Strategic Planner conducting mission analysis for the USSTRATCOM Cyberspace Operations Concept Plan in 2011, and joining the newly-created Joint Cyber Center as a Cyberspace Planner and Program Analyst the following year. In January 2014, he assumed his current duties as Branch Chief, where he leads long-range planning and prioritization efforts for USSTRATCOM Cyber Protection Team defensive cyberspace operations. Chris is a candidate for the Master of Science degree in Information Security Management from SANS Technology Institute, and holds the GIAC Security Essentials, GIAC Certified Incident Handler, and GIAC Law of Data Security and Investigations credentials, as well as the CompTia Security+ certification.
