D5 An Anatomy of a Targeted Persistent Attack (TPA) on Commercial Routers and Means to Mitigate
Date & Time
Monday, March 30, 2020, 3:55 PM - 4:55 PM
Routers are notorious for their vulnerability and susceptibility to attack; there’s been a 539% increase in attacks targeting routers since 2017 and the issue of router security is gaining attention from federal bureaus and consumer protection organizations because the destruction is getting more intense with each hack.
In this session, we’ll discuss the problem of router insecurity and how it impacts numerous global industries and network security across the globe. We’ll also address the potential vulnerabilities that exist in the processor/CPU, the role of flash memory in securing devices, and how a processor-agnostic approach with flash-to-cloud could become a future-proof method for securing routers.
