9:00 - 9:30: Protection against DNS-based Attacks Including DDoS from Infoblox
DNS servers are mission-critical infrastructure, and they have to continue to respond to queries even when they are under attack. If your external DNS server goes down, your entire network is shut off from the Internet. In the last year alone, DNS and related DDoS attacks have increased by more than 216 percent and growing. Attackers look for the weakest links in your network, and the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol is easy to exploit. As a result, attacks designed to bring down DNS servers and consume network bandwidth—and to interfere with or shut down critical IT applications such as email, web sites, VoIP, and software as a service (SaaS)—are on the rise. During this technical and insightful session, Scott Unger from Infoblox will look at the most common attacks, and offer practical suggestions on how you can provide superior protection to your IT Infrastructure and mission-critical DNS services.
Infoblox (NYSE:BLOX) helps customers control their networks. Its solutions help businesses automate complex network control functions to reduce costs, increase security and maximize uptime. Infoblox technology enables automatic discovery, real-time configuration and change management and compliance for network infrastructure, as well as critical network control functions such as DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (IPAM) for applications and endpoint devices. Leveraging patented Grid™ technology, Infoblox delivers higher availability, and an authoritative network database for real-time and historical reporting.
9:30 - 10:00: Unlock the Key to Repel Ransomware with Kaspersky
Your screen freezes and a dialogue box pops up to tell you that your computer is locked and your files will all be gone forever if you don’t pay up. Since many victims are willing to pay the ransom, this type of cryptomalware is on the rise, netting millions of dollars for cybercriminals looking for a substantial return on their minimal investment.
During this session you will hear from Mark Villinski of Kaspersky Lab, on what they as a major security vendor are seeing in this growing area of focus for both security vendors and cybercriminals. Areas of focus will include:
- Common ransomware scenarios and delivery mechanisms
- Trends in this growing form of cybercrime
- Recommendations to help your organization avoid being a victim
Kaspersky is the world's largest privately held, and among the top four security vendors, operating in 200 countries and protecting 400 million users.
