ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Reduce Your IoT Risk With Network Segmentation
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Steven Mond – Principal Architect, Segmentation & Cloud, Forescout
The rush toward digital transformation comes with the increasing use of internet of things devices to gather the necessary data that creates the blueprint for the organization to grow and mature.
At the same time, these “Enterprise of Things” devices, including smart buildings, medical devices, networking equipment and VoIP phones, are increasing the attack surface that security teams are required to defend and increase the risk organizations are taking on – whether it’s from data leaking or threat actors using misconfigured devices as launching points for attacks.
How can security leaders gain greater visibility into their network to determine what connected devices are there and which are vulnerable? Can network segmentation help resolve issues found in the infrastructure that organizations are now using? How can rethinking your network strategy create better security outcomes when trying to protect Enterprise of Things devices from attack?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how best to manage connected and IoT devices and how network segmentation can provide a layer of security for those organizations that are relying on Enterprise of Things devices to support their digital transformation strategies and plans.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is keeping organizations from developing more mature network segmentation strategies?
- Can network segmentation help organizations discover, protect and reduce the risk that comes with deploying connected and Enterprise of Things devices?
- How can organizations utilize network segmentation to meet a myriad of government regulations and data privacy laws, while better guarding the attack surface?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Steven Mond, Principal Architect, Segmentation and Cloud at Forescout Technologies.
