“What’s Lurking on your Network?” OSI Layer 1: A New Data source for Hardware Visibility and Cyber Risk Management. ISSA Columbus GA Chapter
About this event
We’ll speak about how cyber-crime organizations and state sponsored actors exploit physical layer 1 “blind spots” to gain access to an organization’s most valuable assets.
With the most recent events in the news, it is safe to say that state sponsored cyber-attacks will be on the rise. Protecting our assets on all levels is more important than ever and often layer 1 protection gets overlooked in favor of the flashier exploits. Sepio wants to make sure that you don’t make that mistake. Sepio will explain how layer 1 blind spots provide opportunities for malicious actors to take advantage of our networks using malware injection, ransomware, and data leakage via rogue devices.
Kurt Wassersug of Sepio brings over 20 years of leadership experience and has worked in a myriad of cyber and InfoSec companies during his tenure. He has worked with some of largest global companies and has a deep understanding of operational and technical challenges security practitioners face. Kurt is a senior manager at Sepio, a company focused on providing complete visibility using Layer 1 of the OSI model. Layer 1 focuses on the existence of a device and can stop attacks instantly where traditional visibility tools use layer 2 (MAC) and layer 3+ (TCP/IP) network data to discover and identify devices. This is problematic as at Layers 2 and above, devices without a digital existence (passive taps, unmanaged switches, MiTM attacks or “spoofed” devices) go undetected.
Join us on November 17 at 5:30pm EST for the Metro Atlanta ISSA Chapter and find out what’s lurking in your network!
