Intrusion detection is hardly a bleeding edge technology, but there’s a reason we still use it — detecting an intrusion is the first step to stopping a serious data breach. In an industry that touts bleeding-edge technologies and tends to relegate older technologies to the virtual trash heap after just a few years, it’s telling that intrusion detection is still considered an essential technology. A recent survey of security professionals by SC Media and BluVector looked at what technology companies are using today for intrusion detection and what their plans are for the future.
Among the topics we will address today are:
- What are the essential components of a next generation intrusion detection system
- How intrusion detection is used in a modern layered network security environment
- Defending against the exfiltration of data once the attackers are in the network
- Rise of ransomware and the rise of fileless /memory-based techniques
- And the human capital issue with security
