Help Defenders Effectively Investigate Incidents with Event Logs Jeff Fellinge
Event logs include a treasure trove of information that security defenders rely on to investigate and resolve security incidents. Help your defenders quickly and effectively respond to incidents by carefully choosing which events to log and the pertinent information to include.

Next-generation Firewalls: More than ACL Filters Jeff Fellinge
Next-generation firewall capabilities and features now extend far beyond their traditional predecessors and are worth a serious look for many different scenarios from small-home office to enterprise.

Protect Device Communication Through Secure Protocols Jeff Fellinge
Stop attackers from snooping or tampering with your data by ensuring that your devices and systems use secure protocols for communicating with each other and other services across the internet and in the cloud.

How Device Inventory and Dependency Management Help Secure Larger Systems Jeff Fellinge
Building and maintaining a solid inventory of all on-premise and cloud-based assets with helpful metadata is a critical step to ensuring your security programs include all of your systems.

Threat Modeling Your Device Operations Helps Identify Unwanted Exposure Jeff Fellinge
Discover potential vulnerabilities and predict how your devices, network, and operations would survive an attack by performing regular threat modeling.

Configuration Management: Creating Baseline Configurations for Your Devices Reduces Security Gaps Jeff Fellinge
Lower the operational costs and improve the security of your systems and devices through configuration baselines that define exactly how these devices and technologies that you rely on every day should be correctly set up.

Security Fundamentals Begin with Patching: The Importance of Vulnerability Management in Preventing Attacks Jeff Fellinge
Drive down risk to your devices, systems, and networks by ensuring you have in place a robust vulnerability management process that combines policy and practice to reliably keep your systems running up-to-date software and all recommended security updates.

Identify Anomalous Device Behavior Through Logging and Alerting Jeff Fellinge
Logging and alerting are fundamental tools for detecting not only errors and creating maintenance tickets but also helping defenders detect attackers by piecing together individual events into a bigger picture.

Surface Area Management of Embedded Devices through Host and Network Based Firewalls Jeff Fellinge
Lower the risk of a successful attack on your network-connected devices by understanding the network ports and protocols they use and disabling or filtering those they do not need.
