Decrypt As If Your Security Depends On It – Jamie Moles – ESW #248

Use of encryption is on the rise: both by cyber defenders and the attackers they’re tasked to defend against. Encryption has reached near-full adoption by internal teams hoping to implement stronger security and privacy practices. Simultaneously, attackers are using the same mechanisms to hide their malicious activity from the defender’s line of sight. ExtraHop’s Jamie Moles, Senior Technical Marketing Manager joins Enterprise Security Weekly to discuss the various techniques attackers are using to cover their tracks using encryption, addresses common objections about decryption, and makes the case for decryption as a path toward faster, more confident defense. Jamie shares a demonstration of how the ExtraHop Reveal(x) network detection and response platform securely decrypts network traffic in order to successfully halt a breach in progress.
