Dare to Know Your Network’
Irish Aviavation Authority, The Times Building, 11-12 D’Olier Street, Dublin 2
Cybersecurity is one of the key talking points in the IT industry in 2017. Many legacy security systems and firewalls are now ineffective defence mechanisms in dealing with the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape.
As organisations prepare to begin the journey towards GDPR compliance, the big question on every IT or Network Manager’s mind is, ‘How do I know my network is secure?’.
Agile Networks is working to help equip you with the ability to answer this question confidently. As part of our ‘Dare to Know Your Network’ campaign with Juniper Networks we can now provide you with a free network security posture consultation through Juniper’s non-invasive network assessment – application and network risk report (ANR) – to help detect potential security risks in your network.
To introduce you to the Juniper Networks Security story and demonstrate how the ANR Report works and what visibility it will give you on your network, we are running a Juniper Networks Security Enablement Day. By attending, you will get:
– A look at Sky ATP – a cloud based security service that provides advanced malware protection
– Experience with Junos Space Security Director a comprehensive network security management solution
– An overview of Juniper’s security solution and future direction

TechFire: Are cracks in cloud protection leaving your apps vulnerable?
The Gibson Hotel, Dublin
Hackers are experts in distraction and confusion. They often use one technique to distract from the use of another.
However phishing, encryption malware and DDoS attacks — though garnering much attention — are often poorly understood as being narrowly focused on one aspect of operation. In truth, today’s attacks can target any layer of application availability, leaving organisations vulnerable, irrespective of the strength of their cloud platform — public, hybrid or private.
The first TechFire briefing of 2017 on 1 March will examine the nature of today’s attacks with respect to protecting the entire application infrastructure, across clouds and down to the premises.
from the viewpoint of a high-profile finance application, David Cahill, security strategy and architecture manager at AIB will provide a valuable overview on protecting critical applications in today’s threat landscape.
Expert speakers from F5 Networks will join the panel discussion and show that a complete application protection solution can and must have the ability to protect across all layers of infrastructure and platforms – providing complete protection for the organisation.
Moderator Paul Hearns will lead the discussion. It adds up to a focused two-hour update on current thinking in cloud security: essential information for IT professionals.
