Presentation Two

It’s a New World of Threats and Solutions

Jim Zelnosky, Senior Systems Engineer, Infoblox

The emerging threat of malware introduced by the trend toward BYOD and the increasing complexity of security solutions demands new thinking.

Today’s targeted attacks pose threats to both data and infrastructure inside your enterprise. Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and malware is using DNS to perform data exfiltration and disrupt your mission-critical DNS infrastructure.

There are DNS internal security solution that allow you to detect these types of attacks, self-mitigate the threat, disrupt communication between malware and command-and-control servers and pinpoint infections on your internal network.

Plan on attending this session for a dynamic, wide-ranging discussion of these and other Internet security topics, including:

· Types of malware APTs being used to exfiltrate sensitive data
· DDoS methods used to disrupt both internal and external DNS services
· Creating a security, highly available and self-mitigating internal DNS core infrastructure
