This power discussion at the 17th edition of Express Technology Sabha, began with Trend Micro team saying that most vulnerable sectors are banking and government.
There are more and more targeted attacks happening in the organisations. Organisations are moving to hybrid cloud, BYOD is a cause of security concern.
There is lot of virtualization taking place, as it offers ease of manageability. Remote locations are accessing database and application. Attack on SKADA systems is the new trend. It is being accessed in real-time environment from outside. It is also being built on Windows. Even partners accessing network from outside have to be managed. Consolidation of data centres, is creating a hole in the perimeter.
Firewall put earlier may not be so relevant now. Due to changing threat scenarios, government is advised not to follow conventional ways of security. Trend Micro then touched upon the latest entrant in security threats which is Ransomware.
They have registered 85 cases of Ransomware targeted to high profile people. One of the ways to prevent it is to put sand-boxing technology at gateway layer. It is still not the only answer and is efficient only to a certain extent. Delegates thought that sand-boxing is very expensive. There are legal issues if the solution tries to get into packet analysis.
