    • Defense in Depth: Why Perimeter Defenses Aren’t Enough
      • Rick Gouin, Winslow Technology Group Chief Technology Officer
      • Perimeter defenses are not enough. A sufficiently motivated attacker will gain access to your networks despite your best efforts.  A good defense-in-depth strategy secures the perimeter and has additional defenses layered throughout the infrastructure.  How we build the remaining layers across your battle plan will determine how successful your defense will be.  During this session, we will discuss a layered defense strategy to protect your organization and help improve your overall security posture.

Matt will then “pop the hood” on our vNOC with a brief demonstration of how we monitor systems, show a sample of report cards we produce, and explain how we uniquely use email alerts as a common denominator for incident identification and event coalescing.
