As attacks and breaches mount, security practitioners have ever more weapons available. The question is, how to best use some of these high-powered security tools? Making things more complicated for security is a movement to software-defined networking (SDN).

In this new SANS webcast, SANS senior instructor Dave Shackleford will talk about segmentation, the evolution of microsegmentation, the impact of SDN and better ways to prevent attacks.

Attendees will learn how microsegmentation strategies can fail and discover opportunities to better leverage what's in their arsenal. Attendees will take away specific tactics and guidance and learn how to apply them to web servers and apps, protect users, and prevent attacks such as command-and-control. Other potential attacks and attack opportunities will also be addressed.
