USA 2017: Security Challenges in the Enterprise

500 data breaches have occurred since the beginning of 2017 according to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) report. Growing costs of incident management and remediation have heightened the need for new mitigation strategies and tools. Enterprise systems are particularly susceptible to compromise with unique challenges to risk visibility and assessment. Unobstructed view and comprehensive knowledge of the threat surface is critical to preempting attack vectors and mitigating breach incidents.

Historically, isolating kernel-level vulnerabilities provided sufficient exploitation protection and visibility of security infrastructure. Modern datacenter orchestration systems present new attack mechanisms and embedded defenses. Datacenter Orchestration Security and Insecurity: Assessing Kubernetes Mesos and Docker At Scale describes the benefits and limitations of modern datacenter-level orchestration systems both in the cloud and on-premise. Gain insight into new attack patterns and defense tactics. Dino Dai Zovi, CTO, Capsule8, Inc. provides a comprehensive view of frequent breach practices and best modes for secure cluster and single machine set ups.

Streamlining software deployments and employing Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings is seemingly cost effective and efficient, and rapidly emerging as the dominant enterprise delivery model in organizations of all sizes. Infecting The Enterprise: Abusing Office365+Powershell For Covert C2 examines the polemics of this, pointing specifically to security risks of Microsoft's SaaS offerings. In this Briefing, Craig Dods, Chief Architect - Security, Juniper Networks present channels for bypassing security mechanisms and covertly exfiltrating data through the coupling of Office365 and PowerShell. Demonstrations model exactly how access can be escalated and enterprises can be compromised through Office 365.

Office 365 is not exclusively vulnerable to breach, insecurities of single-machine deployments, complexities of cloud security and IoT expand the enterprise attack surface and alter the capacities needed to prevent them. Pentesting Enterprise Infrastructure - Journeyman Level advances best practices for pentesting internal and external networks. Students will have the opportunity to target Windows and Linux operating systems, databases, app servers, and Microsoft's active directory in custom, hands-on lab environment. Maneuver through real-world scenarios utilizing popular tools Metasploit and Empire for an extensive foundation and real-world applicability.

The breadth of threat actors and infrastructure components induces the need for robust and reliable monitoring tools.
