Fuel Roundtables: Wednesday, June 14 - Thursday, June 15

Join Fuel at select roundtable discussions. Time and room details to come.

Wednesday, June 14:

  • Protecting your AWS Deployment: Looking to use AWS as a means of expanding your data center but have questions on how to get started, how to protect your applications and data or want to learn from others? Join some of your peers and product experts from Palo Alto Networks and AWS in a discussion about best practices and security controls for AWS.
  • Breach Prevention: You have heard the breach prevention message. Bring your operational, engineering, and architecture questions to this roundtable of your peers. Potential topics include determining what the “unknown” means (applications, URLs, threats), using prevention to gather intel (“allow” vs. “prevent” vs. “block”), using the anti-phishing features of PAN-OS 8.0, how APIs can increase your automation and prevention. Beyond discussing the technology, the people, process, and procedures necessary to be successful in preventing breaches are also in scope.
  • Internet Gateway Roundtable: Bring your questions about securing the all-important gateway to your networks. Learn what resident experts share about best practices to implementing critical functions here, and how other customers have implemented prevention at the internet edge.
  • People and Process Considerations for SSL Decryption, App-ID, User-ID: How do you extract optimum value from your next-generation firewalls? Join a discussion with your peers to hear how they have adopted advanced capabilities on the next-generation firewall like App-ID, User-ID, Threat Prevention and SSL Decryption. You will hear a discussion about the technology as well as the people part of their journey. Learn from their challenges and see what benefits they ultimately derived, so that you can create a roadmap for your organization to adopt these best practices.
  • ICS/SCADA Segmentation Roundtable: Whether you are driven by NERC CIPv5, or simply want to understand best practices to segment the ICS/SCADA network, or other ICS/SCADA network concerns, join in a roundtable discussion about these important issues. Learn from our industry specialists about other customer ICS/SCADA security approaches and top of mind issues from your peers.
  • Date Center Security: Join your peers and a Palo Alto Networks expert for a discussion on approaches to security across data center models, and strategies to build support from your Network, Server, and Storage teams, and any additional challenges in data center security. Bring your questions on how to include security in the foundation of private cloud and SDN architectures (e.g., VMware NSX, Cisco ACI, OpenStack) without adding complexity to the network design or losing visibility. 
  • Optimizing the Security Operations Center: Is your SOC hiring more people and expanding its processes to address the growing number of cyber incidents?  Come discuss and get recommendations from your peers and SOC experts about your challenges in managing a SOC, and explore a modern approach that leverages the latest in machine learning and automation to break away from OPEX-dependent workloads.  Discuss opportunities to optimize threat hunting, reduce events per analyst hour (EPAH), and leverage Palo Alto Networks capabilities including correlation objects, AutoFocus, MineMeld and other tools.
  • Financial Services/Banking Roundtable: Join your peers and industry experts for a discussion about cyber security topics relevant to the financial sector.  Bring your questions and learn from your peers about topics relevant to banking/financial services from defense in depth challenges to recent threats (e.g., SWIFT-related attacks, ATM malware, bank watering holes), evolving regulations, or any other issues within the industry.

Thursday, June 15:

  • Actionable Insights from your Palo Alto Networks Data: Transform the data available in Palo Alto Networks products about your cloud, data center, network, and mobile devices into actionable insights.  Join this roundtable to discuss how organizations can leverage this data for a myriad of business objectives.  Share your experiences, and hear from your peers to better understand and ensure you’re fully leveraging the data from the Palo Alto Networks platform.  Some likely topics include correlating data from the ACC and Monitor tabs to best meet your business objectives, identifying applications on your network, report customization for different audiences, integration with third parties (e.g., Splunk), and Panorama for network, cloud, and endpoint visibility and automation.
  • Securing Workloads on Microsoft Azure: Do you have questions about protecting Microsoft Azure? Join some of your peers and product experts from Palo Alto Networks and Microsoft in a discussion about best practices and security controls for your Microsoft Azure deployment
  • Advanced Endpoint Protection: Spending on endpoint security is among the highest priorities for CISOs in 2017. Bring your questions and join your peers for an interactive discussion on deploying endpoint security and the challenges you may face in protecting your laptops, workstations, and servers running multiple platforms. Topics may include Traps and WildFire integration visibility, Traps and Tanium to meet multiple compliance and security objectives, endpoint security for special-purpose devices from Retail POS to ATMs to ICS & SCADA devices. 
  • Higher Education Roundtable: Bring your questions and interest to share and learn how other higher education customers are addressing the changing reality of their networks: new smart machines, multimedia content, e-learning tools, and research collaboration that can bring network bandwidth and security to their breaking point. Topics may include virtual segmentation for Campus WiFi to staff and faculty needs, to student PII protection and regulatory considerations, and other topics. Engage in discussion with industry experts and your peers on approaching these and other top of mind issues.
  • Hospitals/Healthcare Roundtable: Join your peers and a Palo Alto Networks healthcare expert for a roundtable discussion about healthcare cybersecurity topics. We’ll discuss current issues and answer your questions about medical device security, ransomware experiences, HIPAA and PCI compliance and segmentation that actually works in hospitals. 
  • Securing SaaS Deployments: Come join your peers to discuss the best practices and business processes for gaining visibility to unsanctioned SaaS applications used in your environment, approving/denying SaaS applications, and getting teams to work together for ensuring the security of any SaaS in your network environment.
