In this discussion, we will draw on that experience to focus in on the most common attack vectors, recovery methods, and mitigation techniques gleaned from multiple real-life incident response activities.

    • Kash Ansari, Commvault Senior Director, Sales Engineering
    • Paul Azzi, Zscaler Partner Consulting Engineer
    • Defense in depth existed as a military strategy long before it was adopted by information security practitioners. When we think of defense in depth in an IT context, we are generally thinking about a layered defense. We don’t just secure the perimeter and then assume that everything inside is safe. A good defense in depth strategy secures the perimeter, but has additional defenses layered throughout the infrastructure. During this session, we will discuss overall defense strategies to protect your organization and help improve your security posture.
