Topic: Whitelisting
Speaker: Dave Millier, SentryMetrics
Understanding white listing and its role in helping security professionals do more with less. Dave will cover three main types of white listing: Website (URL), Endpoint (USB, Firewire, wireless, CD/DVD, etc.), and application white listing. He’ll explain what they are, how they work, talk about some commercial examples of each and how they’re deployed today in numerous corporate environments. Most importantly, the main goal of the session will be on how to most effectively use these technologies to allow the people responsible for security to get control of the network back, gain better visibility into what’s actually happening with your users, and allow effective, granular security management without breaking the budget OR requiring additional security resources.
