Government Panel: Modern Best Practices: Information Sharing and Next-Gen Defense

Stopping the modern cyber adversary requires agile defenses and actionable data from the global threat community in order to detect and prevent today’s known and unknown threats – from the network to the perimeter edge and endpoints, all the way into the heart of the data center. So, what role is next-gen security playing in stopping modern adversaries? How can we leverage the characteristics and techniques from cyber attacks we have prevented and detected to prevent future threats across the ecosystem? How can we enhance cyber transparency in the face of information sharing challenges such as privacy concerns, liability protection, and distrust of publicly exchanging cyber data?

We’ll discuss what information sharing means and the role next-gen security plays in helping governments thwart tomorrow’s attacks today.
