CYBERSECURITY PANEL

09:30 - 09:50

Securing DNS - why and how?

In today's digital world, DNS security is the cornerstone of business resilience. Cybercriminals know this, and they're relentlessly targeting DNS services to gain access to your most critical data.
Protecting your DNS requires a holistic approach that goes beyond securing the DNS itself. You also need to safeguard other IT resources using DNS protection.

 

This insightful presentation will delve into the threats that lurk in the DNS landscape, outline a comprehensive security strategy, and showcase the robust solutions offered by the Infoblox platform.

 

Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to fortify your DNS defenses and protect your business from the ever-evolving cyber threats.

NETWORKING PANEL

11:30 - 11:50

When networks, security mechanisms and cloud services become a cyber fortress

In today's dynamic business landscape, ICT networks are no longer just about bandwidth. They're the backbone of your digital operations, connecting users, devices, and applications across wired, wireless, and remote environments.

 

Securing these networks is a complex challenge. Traditional approaches based on network perimeters are no longer effective. You need a more robust solution that integrates security into the very fabric of your network.

 

Enter Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), a transformative approach that grants access based on user identity, not network location. ZTNA empowers you to:
  • Secure your network from the inside out, regardless of user location or device
  • Simplify network access management and
  • Enhance resilience against cyberattacks.

BUSINESS CRITICAL SYSTEM (OT/ICS) PANEL

14:00 - 14:20

Master the comprehensive approach to designing robust OT/ICS/IoT systems

In the face of escalating cyber threats, protecting critical infrastructure has become a top priority. But traditional cybersecurity approaches often fall short in the unique OT/ICS environment. What's needed is a holistic strategy that seamlessly integrates networking and cybersecurity, ensuring robust protection from the ground up.

 

By adopting a comprehensive approach to OT/ICS cybersecurity, you can:
  • Protect your critical assets from the inside out, addressing the specific vulnerabilities of OT/ICS systems
  • Leverage networking technologies and cybersecurity mechanisms specifically tailored for OT environments
  • Implement reference architectures and best practices to ensure a secure and resilient infrastructure.

Hands-on workshop: Applying VisionOne technology to cyber protection

Step into the shoes of an Incident Responder for a few hours and learn how they analyze incidents, piece together the puzzle, and defend against existing or future attacks. Additionally, you will see how with the right tools, this job can truly be done in such a short timeframe.

 

This will be a CTF-style workshop, with the curiosity that it is a defensive CTF, which is not common; typically, you can find Red Team tasks, i.e., offensive tasks, online. Through solving various tasks, participants will familiarize themselves with tactics and techniques that attackers use in targeted attacks, including phishing emails, script usage for system access, and running malicious code in RAM. How to detect, stop, and prevent such attacks.

 

To participate in the workshop, you need a laptop with an Internet browser installed.
