  • A very Typical Corporate Network Scenario with the level of access and the threat perceptions. You will notice that as the network expands the threat perception also varies. Green denotes the safe zone and red denotes the most common means of infections entering the network or data leaving the network.
  • It used to be hacking for glory, Now it is hacking fro money; the next motion picture Ocean 11-12 (13) will be about a bunch of guys working on computers trying to enter a major bank

      • Interoperability
    • 5. File Servers Web or App Servers Email Servers Typical Network Security Scenario Very High High Medium Risks Very Low Low Vendors Mobile PDA Mobile Laptops Home Computer Local Users Desktops
    • 6. Typical Network Security Scenario Very High High Medium Risks Very Low Low
    • 7. Business Continuity Vs Security Statistics on Attack Trends that could lead to Data/Identity Theft. 54% 28% 13% 4% 1%
    • 8. Threat Scenario – Past & Present Threats were indiscriminate, hit everyone Threats are highly targeted, regionalized Threats were disruptive  impact visible Threats steal data & damage brands  impact unclear Remediation action was technical (“remove”)‏ Remediation more complex, may need to investigate data leak Entry through perimeter and gateway Entry through uneducated network clients and endpoints Threats were noisy & visible to everyone Threats are silent & unnoticed with variants

    • 14. Endpoints & Endpoint Security
      • Endpoint management costs are increasing
        • Cost of downtime impacts both productivity and revenue
        • Costs to acquire, manage and administer point products are increasing, as well as the demand on system resources
      • Complexity is increasing as well
        • Complexity and man power to manage disparate endpoint protection technologies are inefficient and time consuming
      • Growing number of new known and unknown threats
        • Stealth-based and silent attacks are increasing, so there is a need for anti-virus to do much more
      • The Perfect Endpoint Security system is with a Centrally Managed Client Security Solution. Some of the Major Technology based threats
        • Bluesnarfing - Using Bluetooth
        • Podslurping – Using iPods
        • Thumbsucking – Using Thumb Drives

      • With
        • Remediation
        • Management
    • 23. Endpoint Security Best Practices
      • Inventory all IT resources
      • Group resources into levels of sensitivity
      • Define end user access scenarios
      • Associate end user access scenarios with levels of sensitivity
      • Validate the policies with a select group using event logging
      • Roll policies into full production
      • User must Be authenticated
        • With Identity Management System
      • Endpoint Must Be Healthy
          • Anti-Virus software running and properly configured
          • Recent scan shows no malware
          • Personal Firewall running and properly configured
