An Inside-Out View of the Cyber Pandemic

Wednesday, August 4, 11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. PDT


While it sounds cliche (and a bit alarmist) to use the term pandemic, that’s exactly what we’re facing. Ransomware attacks as well as double, triple and quadruple extortion, state-sponsored attacks, and other cybercrimes are affecting organizations worldwide – every minute. That’s why it’s imperative to understand your adversaries, reexamine your security posture and make significant changes that would otherwise be difficult in relative peacetime.

With our threat intelligence, incident response and product development teams working together, Palo Alto Networks sees attacks from a very different perspective. During this discussion, security experts will share an inside-out view of the cyber pandemic from the front lines, provide detailed intelligence and offer practical guidance on how we are evolving our technology so you can rethink your defenses.

    SESSION 1
    A Year of Container Attacks and a Very Vulnerable Docker Honeypot

    Wednesday, August 4, 11:20 – 11:40 a.m. PDT


    What happens when you leave a Docker daemon exposed for over a month? We’re taking a look back at a year of threat research on container security, including highlights of the creative ways attackers are targeting containers. Then, we’ll run the numbers and provide examples of the attacks experienced when a Docker daemon is left with a common misconfiguration. Learn the real-world consequences of leaving a container misconfigured.

  • SESSION 2
    Design and Deploy Zero Trust Network Security with a
    Next-Generation Identity Architecture

    Thursday, August 5, 2021, 10:50 – 11:10 a.m. PDT


    Identity is a critical component of a Zero Trust approach to network security. With enterprises increasingly migrating from on-prem to cloud identity providers, and users connecting everywhere, it’s difficult to keep security and identity connected and in sync across the network. Networks are designed for a single source of identity, and this can lead to inconsistent security between data centers, campus networks, public clouds, and hybrid environments.

    In this session, Imran Bashir will describe a new cloud-based architecture for identity designed to authenticate and authorize users against various identity sources, whether they’re on-prem, in the cloud, or a hybrid scenario. He’ll describe its applicability to identity-based policies, simplified cloud authentication, and optimized performance for use case policies. Then he’ll close with a short demo of the technology.

  • ON-DEMAND SESSION
    Cortex XDR vs. SolarWinds and HAFNIUM


    Recent high-impact attacks are raising concerns about whether advanced threat actors have the upper hand over enterprise security. SolarWinds showed how effective an adversary could be by subverting the trust we have in our technology vendors, and HAFNIUM is teaching us just how vulnerable we are against a weaponized exploit on an exposed service – even when a patch is available. This session will analyze what made these attacks so effective, the methods the attackers used and what it takes to prevail with Cortex® XDR™.
