Webinar Video: Protecting Against Heartbleed with Defense in Depth

Last week, our Principal Security Architect, Adam Goodman lead an informative webinar on protecting against the recent OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability along with CSRgroup’s Chief Scientist, Jake Williams.

Hosted by the SANS Institute, the webinar covered some of the more specific technical techniques that Duo Security and other cloud providers use to lessen the risk of the SSL/TLS vulnerabilities.

And in just in case you missed it, we have the webinar on-demand, meaning available to watch for free! Sign up now to see How Defense In Depth Helps Protect You From Unexpected Vulnerabilities Like Heartbleed.

In this webinar, you'll get:

  • An overview of the scope and impact of Heartbleed
  • Specific techniques to lessen the impact of SSL/TLS failures
  • How defense in depth can be applied in your organization
  • Tips from industry-leading cloud providers

Webinar Description:
While the recent Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL may have felt to many like a once-in-a-lifetime Internet-scale calamity, it really was just the latest in a long string of failures in SSL/TLS infrastructure - in recent years, there has been a surprisingly long list of high-profile weaknesses discovered in protocols and implementations.

We should expect this. The problem is not that SSL/TLS and its various implementations are inherently bad: humans make mistakes and all software has bugs; any security protocol or system could easily fall victim to a similar fate (perhaps even more easily - SSL/TLS is, at least, widely used and widely studied).

Instead, these failures illustrate the value of a long-held security principle known as "Defense in Depth," which holds that we must build security at every layer of our systems, such that they can remain secure even if one layer breaks.

Join us for a webcast discussing some of the specific techniques that we - and other industry-leading cloud providers - use to lessen the impact of SSL/TLS failures, and some broader ways in which the principle of Defense in Depth can be applied across your organization.
