Title: Collapsing Security in an APT World
Topic: "Details matter," insists Nate Long, Security Engineer for Check Point Software. Starting with a review of recent conditions including the results of a worldwide audit run by Check Point Software starting in 2012, Nate explores one corporation's approach to offering sufficient security in a world full of persistent threats, and wraps up by discussing the practical ramifications of "collapsing" security measures onto a single vendor or single platform in a world where our sense of security seems to be collapsing.
Bio: Nathan Long is presently Indiana Security Engineer for Check Point Software, Ltd., the largest company in the world focused exclusively on network security, and a leader in network security products, firewall solutions, endpoint security, secure mobile access, security management, data loss prevention, anti-malware and threat emulation technologies. Working in the Network Security field since 1998 has provided Nate a wide range of perspective, with insight ranging from small start-ups to enterprise corporations in almost every Industry Vertical one could think of. A veteran of industry presentations across the country, Nate fondly remembers the days of explaining to corporate executives why a company absolutely needed a firewall. In his spare time, Nate, a priest in the Anglican Church in North America, is father to four children, lives in a religious community with 10 other residents, and works on his Ph.D. in theology.
