Network segmentation has been a security best practice in financial services for a very long time. Most institutions know that segmenting systems is the right thing to do, but organizations still most often do not use the defenses at their disposal. With the proliferation of mobile computing, cloud computing, and innovative use for the Internet, no organization should take yesterday's segmentation best practices for granted. Whether it's to isolate highly sensitive data within the data center, to ensure better protection around offices that are in high-risk geographies, or to isolate mobile devices internally, maintaining good segmentation might require a different approach today than just five years ago. This webinar will cover typical use cases in financial services, best and worst practices, and offer ideas to get started if you feel you have fallen behind.
