Microsegmentation: Best Practices for Blocking and Containing Breaches in Financial Services
Running an effective cybersecurity program doesn't just require hoping for the best, but planning for the worst. Despite an organisation's best efforts, attackers nevertheless manage to breach their defenses and steal regulated customer data, unleash crypto-locking malware and more.

Organisations in the financial services sector have been looking to protect their network by reducing the attack surface, containing the impact of an intrusion and stopping lateral movement. The way to achieve these goals is through software-defined microsegmentation.

How can organisations accurately identify all of the systems inside their network, to build and enforce effective security policies that govern how systems communicate with each other? Which types of security policies work best for microsegmentation, and in which order should they be implemented? Finally, what are common challenges to avoid as organisations employ this complex technology?

This exclusive virtual executive roundtable on "Microsegmentation: Best Practices for Blocking and Containing Breaches in Financial Services" will provide answers to these critical questions. Guided by insights from Guardicore, now part of Akamai, this invitation-only virtual forum will also draw upon the experiences of the attendees, who will discuss best practices for utilising microsegmentation.

Discussion topics will include:

  • - Best practices for implementing software-defined microsegmentation;
  • - Common challenges in such projects – and ways to avoid them;
  • - How software-defined microsegmentation can best support an organisation's Zero Trust journey.


You will have the opportunity to discuss microsegmentation with a handful of senior executives in an informal, virtual setting, from which you will emerge with new strategies and solutions you can immediately put to work.
