Jeffery Bird, Senior Security Specialist, Juniper Networks
"The Benefits of SSL Deep Packet Inspection"
SSL encryption (port 443) is the de-facto encryption technology for delivering secure Web browsing, and the benefits it provides. SSL encryption is driving the levels of SSL Web traffic to new heights. According to different industry authorities such as Google, Gartner & Forester in 2018 about 70% of all casual Web traffic is now HTTPS encrypted. Some industries such as finance, government, healthcare & legal are even higher. Warning -not all SSL traffic is benign. Without the right security tools, SSL is a blind spot in your network rendering gateway security measures neutered.
Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) using Web filters, Application Awareness, Anti-Virus Gateway, and IDS/IPS can only provide limited protection against malicious SSL traffic. Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandboxes provided limited protection against HTTPS traffic too.   A more advanced approach of intercepting the SSL traffic allowing the NGFW & ATP devices to examine all Web traffic HTTP & HTTPS traffic is fast becoming a critical requirement.

Privacy and Security Laws: The Changing Landscape
In the 2017-2018 AG Data Breach Report the Washington State Attorney General reported data breaches have increased 700% in the past two years in Washington State. Smart phones, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data repositories collect an ever increasing amount of data on us that can be stolen and used for identity theft or collected by companies and sold, used and misused in ways we don’t know about and haven’t authorized. Privacy and security regulations are behind the times and trying to catch up with the issues presented by technology. During this conversation we will discuss the current regulatory landscape and proposed and recent privacy and security regulations.
