On 8th of October 2019 we hosted first event from the new series: Tech Meeting Series. The conference cycle is intended for IT departments, engineers and IT managers who want to follow latest technology trends, want to talk about the technology with others, share experience and look for solutions best suitable for their organizations.

The first event from the series was focused on Enterprise Security overview. It is not easy to fit into one-day event showing whole scope related to huge security subject. However we tried to focus on most relevant topics that today’s organizations are struggling with. Here we posted about the agenda but let focus on particular sessions.

At the beginning, the opening speach was dalivered by Marcin Bialy, co-founder of Grandmetric Sp. z o.o. who presented the day agenda, Grandmetric company activities and latest established partnerships and  special quiz embedded in QR-code that enabled lucky participant to win the new edition of Design & Build Enteprise Networks course.

After short break, the next episode was led by Maciej Pawelczyk from Ingram Micro – Cisco Systems and Forcepoint distribution in Poland, our event partner. Maciej talked about Data Loss Prevention system designed by Forcepoint that helps against many DLP incidents in many different ways like users personal data leakage via email, instant messangers, web activities and so on. Maciej also presented live session how the system works in practice. If any of you would be interested in implementing DLP in your organization please let me know directly. We can organize PoC (proof of concept) project for your organization together with Maciej.

The third session before the lunch was about Sonic Wall capture client provided by Paweł Najsarek from Ingram Micro. The endpoint protection solution that uses Machine Learning algorithms and ensures endpoints visibility by recording OS level behavior and in the same time prevents file-based attacks, detects malicious activity and provides remediation capability. The interesting thing about capture client is its ability to rollback after machine compromise and ransomware execution (like critical data encryption). More about end-point protection, soon in Grandmetric Knowledge Base

During lunch break there were multiple occasions to talk about security challenges and upcoming projects in organizations. After the break, Marcin Bialy from Grandmetric presented the update of Cisco Next-Generarion Firewalls, example of interesting Identity Filtering design based on Cisco ISE and Firepower integration that he implemented in one of the biggest e-commerce in central Europe, and then moved to the Attack Anathomy part. Yes that was unplanned part, but Marcin decided to share an experience of Grandmetric company from last recovery process processed for one of Grandmetric customers that was subject of targeted attack. Grandmetric Advanced Services team was asked for help in recovery, secure and find the traces of attackers activity. That part was super interesting for attendies as they confirmed it in after-event survey.
