The Solution for Your Legacy System's Security: The Cloud

Over the lifespan of an organization, CIOs/CISOs have developed and implemented technologies that have been key to the organization's success. However, CISOs and their security teams today find themselves stuck ensuring that legacy systems are secure. The solution is cloud-delivered security products that are more agile with the ability to implement new detection methods and services faster than on-site solutions. 

While cloud security is an ideal solution, it is important to know that using the cloud is more than moving legacy management servers to the cloud. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Review the status of legacy system security 
  2. What cloud solutions are the best fit for their business 
  3. What are the main needs in regards to system's scale, data telemetry, staff growth, machine learning, API-based access, and more

From the Front Lines: 5 Best Practices for Application Defense in Depth

Everyone knows applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply and come at an ever-faster rate, protecting those applications becomes a massive challenge. Layer in the issues associated with moving applications to the cloud, using open source code, implementing rapid release cycles, and being forced to use legacy apps when the development team is long gone, and it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless job. 

Layered security, or defense-in-depth, is an admirable goal. The problem is, how do you achieve it? We've been on the front lines for years, finding what works and what doesn't. In the process we have distilled five best practices that will help enterprises of any size tackle the thorny problem of application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant. 

A combination of defenses at the edge, in the network and inside the applications themselves forms the core of the best practices. Layered on top are two additional practices that make all the difference: full real-time visibility with analytics, to help beleaguered security analysts quickly distinguish real threats from noise and take action based on full context; and a consumption model that allow the enterprise to quickly, easily and cost-effectively move protections to where they will do the most good. The result? Vastly improved application security, effective remediation, and a DevSecOps model that works.

Relying on Perimeter Security is Dead

A humorously presented cautionary tale about why you can never effectively protect your corporate data by increasing budgetary funds on the protection of a corporate network's perimeter. It's time to turn your attention inwards and start protecting the data itself instead of the environment. 2019 is the year to rethink your security funding priorities and in this presentation, you'll understand why. You'll never look at your firewalls the same way again. 

Move funding away from perimeter security towards: 

  1. Data Encryption for Data Protection 
  2. Code Signing for Verification 
  3. PKI for Authentication
