1:00-1:20 PM PT: Metadata, Big Data and the Coming Tectonic Shift in Security

While yesterday’s security model was largely based on prevention of breaches, a clear shift is underway towards the internal detection of breaches combined with containment. This approach provides an opportunity to reverse the asymmetry between the attacker and defender, shifting the advantage towards the latter, and big data solutions are key to this changing landscape. Come hear Gigamon’s CTO, Shehzad Merchant, and San Diego County Credit Union’s CISO, Scott Maxwell, discuss this approach and more.
