The Tricks you will learn in SEC501

Designing and securing a network is very complex. With detailed requirements to support all of the latest devices, mobile computing, cloud services and the portability requirements of data, current networks are very porous, very difficult to secure and very compromised. When people hear about networks being compromised, they should not be surprised. Networks directly connected to the Internet are compromised and should be the new baseline for designing and building out security. The question that has to be answered is how to implement security based on the assumption that security is more than just setting up and protecting perimeters. In this talk, Dr. Cole will share real life examples of security solutions that work to protect current environments that might be already compromised. Attendees will learn how to drive this new thought process into decision makers and solutions covering data protection, network design and network monitoring.
