As IT teams around the globe have worked to transition into a new normal, The conditions have been ripe for cyberattacks of all sorts. Rapid change and increased distractions have created opportunities that criminals are eager to exploit.

Now that the initial wave of change has passed, and our remote users are working effectively, now is the time to re-visit preparedness. We recommend you Act Hacked. To do that, you need to ensure you have the network data you need. Your network infrastructure devices still have much that they want to tell you are you listening to the right ones and are you hearing everything they have to say? How can the integration of packets and flow data, commonly available and used by NetOps to help ensure business continuity, help SecOps teams improve their readiness to detect and respond to attacks?

In this discussion, VIAVI Solutions will illustrate and demonstrate how the data used for network monitoring can provide both broad visibility for the identification of threats as well as the forensic-level details needed to understand and document impact.
