The problem with breach defenses isn't the lack of security standards, commercial security products and services or even cybersecurity competence, but the fact that the existing collection of commercial hardware, firmware and software employed to provide IT services contain inherent design and implementation vulnerabilities. As we add millions of lines of poorly secured code every day to our existing base of vulnerable applications and operating systems, the next zero-day exploit is being written and tested. What sophisticated hackers understand - and many IT security practitioners don't - is that regardless of the amount of security products and services deployed, internet-connected systems remain vulnerable to exploitation. Success is only a matter of time and possibly the right zero-day payload. The only solution to this dilemma is to raise the "trustability" level of our computer systems high enough to make even sophisticated hacking riskier and more susceptible to easier identification. In this session, hear about common mistakes organizations make in defending against the sophisticated cyberattacker and learn how to greatly reduce that risk by logically isolating your networks from the bad guys. As they say in the military: Reduce the attack surface.
