Traditional network boundary defense approaches to file transfers focus on binary “good” versus “bad” decisions. Utilizing firewalls, antivirus, domain blocking and other static methods, a block or pass answer is given for each file. While these methods have been somewhat effective for known issues, they do not address zero-day threats or potential false positives. The results are often either too strict or too lax to adequately balance the files risk against the need for the information.
In this cybinar, organised by the Cyber-Security Council Germany e.V. and its Member Nteligen, you can learn more about a “risk tolerance” approach to network boundary defense that has been validated within research done for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security built on a notional architecture from Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute and which supports an analog decision to either pass unchanged, sanitize content, transform or block email attachments based on various threat indicators. This way it is possible to maximize delivery rates while reducing risks and costs related to help desk calls for files that are blocked erroneously or related to post infection mitigations.
The Cybinar takes place as a hybrid event. The talk of Eric Gudenius from Nteligen will be streamed live from the Maryland Innovation Center in Howard County on the US East Coast. Other American participants will also be physically present and will take part in the discussion from there. Howard County is home to the US Cyber Command and the NSA. Accordingly, it is also considered the Silicon Valley for Cybersecurity.
