New York City, NY


Waverley Labs CEO, Juanita Koilpillai, will be speaking on the topic of Open Source Software Defined Perimeters.


Title: Open Source Software Defined Perimeter

Track: Risk Management

Time: 3:30 pm

Speaker: Juanita Koilpillai, Founder & CEO, Waverley Labs

Abstract: The software defined perimeter (SDP) is a new approach to security that mitigates network-based attacks by creating dynamically provisioned perimeters anywhere in the world, including clouds, demilitarized zones (DMZs), and data centers.

The traditional networking model provides visibility and connectivity with a “need to know” access model and then adds a number of point controls to prevent access from untrusted systems. SDP provides zero visibility and zero connectivity, only establishing connectivity after end points prove they can be trusted. This approach prevents essentially all network-based attacks.

The SDP architecture consists of five layers of security controls: single packet authorization, mutual transport layer security, device validation, dynamic firewalls, and application binding. Together, these protocols make it very difficult for attackers to access protected applications.

The New York Metro Joint Cyber Security Conference is a collaborative event cooperatively developed, organized and sponsored by the leading information security industry organizations and chapters.

  • InfraGard (New York Metro)
  • ISACA (New York Metro, New Jersey and Greater Hartford Connecticut)
  • (ISC)2 (New Jersey)
  • ISSA (New York)
  • OWASP (New York Metro, Long Island, Brooklyn)
  • HTCIA (North East Region)
  • ACFE (New Jersey)

Driven by the collaboration between members of this coalition, the strength of organizational membership, the provision of desirable CPE credits and the concurrence of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the NYMJCSC promises — once again — to be a well-attended by members of the information technology, information security, audit, academic, and business communities.
