Cybercriminals are targeting your organization with attacks that misuse keys and certificates to infiltrate your network. And you can’t detect them because they are hiding in encrypted traffic. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2017, 50% of network attacks will use TLS. Yet, many organizations do not realize the severity of this threat.
90% of CIOs admit their current security isn’t effective
In a new study, CIOs admit they are wasting millions of dollars on layered security defenses, because these tools blindly trust keys and certificates.
The bad guys are using stolen, compromised, or forged keys and certificates not only to evade detection, but to achieve authentication and trusted status that circumvents other security controls and allows their actions to remain hidden.
Want to understand the real risk?
Venafi will show you how bad it can get. Our gameshow - “Are You Smarter than a Bad Guy?” - will show how your security foundation is built on a system of trust that relies on keys and certificates. Brick by security-enhanced brick, we build a wall of metaphorical security systems that rest on your keys and certificates. This wall of bricks illustrates how the smallest compromise of that foundation (a hijacked key or certificate) can cause the whole system to come tumbling down.
Here’s what we’ll be talking about:
