Shrinking the Enterprise Attack Surface in the Age of Cloud, Mobility and Ubiquitous Access

The attack surface of enterprises is exploding, with widespread adoption of the Cloud, new smart devices, and app access extended to users of all types inside and outside the perimeter. Yet the foundational IT security architecture has remained the same, giving rise to a continuing wave of data breaches. Just like stealth technology shrinks the targetable attack surface of a ship, emerging best practices are proving to reduce the attack surface of an enterprise that is exposed to attackers. These techniques focus on aligning security controls with business needs while also containing breaches when attackers compromise the infrastructure.

What you will take away from this session

  • Which factors are driving the explosion of the typical enterprise attack surface?
  • How should security architectures evolve to reduce the attack surface?
  • Are “No Trust” and “Zero Trust” architectures viable answers?
  • Breach containment when the inevitable breach occurs
