Conference Highlights Innovative Approach to Managing New Cyberthreats

The chapter, with Intel Security, held the July conference "Cyberthreats: New Scenarios" in Rome. Attendees were welcomed by Chapter President Lt. Gen. Antonio Tangorra, ITAF (Ret.), and Ferdinando Torazzi, regional director, Italy and Greece, Intel Security. Marcello Romeo, Intel Security pre-sales manager, introduced Intel's innovative approach to managing new cyberthreats. To face and defeat the new generation of threats, it is essential to develop a strategy based on a "single defense cycle," coherently integrated, and able to prevent, detect and correct all known and unknown threats. Such an innovative strategy is the cornerstone of Intel Security Connected Platform, a suite with a wide range of natively integrated and interoperable solutions that can be managed by a single console. Torazzi emphasized how Intel Security considers security a global protection of endpoints (PCs, laptops and mobile devices) and networks as well as a complete fulfillment of company policies and national and international regulations. Intel Security considers an effective defense cycle a three-phase process based on the "protect, detect and correct" concepts. During the second session of the conference, Elmouttahid Boubker, senior enterprise architect, Intel Security, provided detailed insights on Intel Security Connected Platform, structured on three main elements. The first element is the Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) server, which provides a real-time updated framework of all the security events within an organization. The second element is Global Threat Intelligence (GTI), a huge cloud database in which all the detected threats are categorized and classified while all the unknown threats are analyzed. Finally, the Active Response component analyzes all detected anomalies, providing necessary intervention.
