No Network Needed?!?! - Ron Burkett BSidesRDU 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

No Network Needed?!?!
Ron Burkett
BSidesRDU 2018

It seems every day, we are bombarded with news of yet another breach and our personal information being traded and sold on the dark web/Internet. We lose sleep wondering if we have the right controls and policies in place to prevent our companies and our names from appearing in the next morning’s headlines. Is it time for a different approach? What if we could get rid of our network so we no longer had to define complex boundaries and policies? Is it really possible to architect a system that removes all the traditional ingress and egress points? If we resign ourselves to the fact that it’s not IF but WHEN our network gets breached….then why do we still have a network?

Ron Burkett is a Director of Sales Engineering for Zscaler. Ron has 20+ years of experience in the networking and security industries and has been deeply involved in developing emerging security and networking strategies for fortune 1000 customers. Currently Ron is tasked with helping customers develop zero-trust networking strategies by adopting cloud, software defined networking strategies, and FEDRAMP certified solutions for US federal government agencies.
