Section: Crisp talk Technical level: Intermediate
To discuss and discover our learnings and ways to mitigate and avoid security breaches.
We got breached last year. The talk will focus on what should we have done, what we did and how you can prevent similar incidents in your infrastructure. I will discuss the importance of right monitoring to detect such incidents. What are the simple things that we miss which could prevent such disasters. And lastly, I would discuss how to catch the culprit with the right logging.
