Back to basics
In a world of advanced persistent threats and increasingly sophisticated countermeasures, it is more important than ever to focus on security basics first. While we need the capabilities new security technologies bring, in almost all cases, the effectiveness of these tools depends on basic security principles being operated effectively. In this session, we will discuss common mistakes organizations make with security basics, how those mistakes can render more advanced security controls ineffective, and what we can do to help avoid such errors.
