Breaching the External Network Security Perimeter

Network security device vendors have done a good job of preventing or minimizing external attacks on enterprise network infrastructure by adding a range of capabilities to their products, such as access control, IPS, VPN, DLP, antivirus, and other threat prevention measures. Now attackers are looking for innovative ways of gaining access to valuable enterprise data. We will explore various techniques attackers employ to bypass protections and gain access to an internal network—having no special resources other than information publicly available over the Internet.

In this on-demand webinar, we’ll discuss Open Source Intelligence OSINT - intelligence collected from publicly available - its importance and applications. We will talk about how attackers obtain OSINT data, identify potential targets, and craft targeted attacks against them, demonstrating how seemingly harmless data can be used to compromise critical infrastructure. Finally, we’ll discuss various protection mechanisms an enterprise can use to prevent attacks and to defeat attackers with malicious intent.
