The increasing number and sophistication of cyber attacks against critical infrastructure have reinforced the importance of building resilient cyber infrastructure. Organizations are identifying their critical systems and protecting them with multiple cyber-defense layers. However, many connected systems that form the perimeter of the organization's network remain exposed. Attackers often exploit the perimeter, leveraging existing networking services and unknown loopholes to reach the network's crown jewels through lateral movements.
Berthier will demonstrate how to assess the risk of lateral movement and harden firewall policies to enforce strict network segmentation through a step-by-step case study.
Berthier has over 15 years of experience in the design and development of network security technologies. He was part of the University of Illinois research team that originally developed the technology that drives the Network Perception platform. He received his PhD in the field of cybersecurity from the University of Maryland College Park before joining the Information Trust Institute (ITI) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Research Scientist.
