5310 - Optimizing Endpoint Security for Cloud-centric Infrastructures

Tuesday, September 26
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Organizations and managers struggle with the concept of endpoint security as vendors market various capabilities with their unique naming conventions. Questions of endpoint security coverage and product mix is a constant concern, as are opex costs with a large variety of software applications. These challenges are coupled with system integration issues and the new reliance on endpoint in cloud-centric infrastructures. A vendor-agnostic methodology will be presented called Endpoint Heat Map Security Optimization Analysis. This process will follow a cyber threat model approach to delineate endpoint security capabilities and optimization of a multi-vendor security stack.

The process involves a five-step process involving (1.) cyber threat modeling; (2.) a countermeasure capabilities analysis; (3.) a countermeasure maturity analysis; (4.) a gap analysts; and (5.) vendor endpoint optimization.
