Breaking the Zero-Day Attack on Linux

Jay Beale, co-founder, COO and CTO, InGuardians

About this Webinar

It may seem like you can’t do anything to defeat the next “zero day” vulnerability in your Linux system, but that’s not true. Jay Beale, co-founder and CTO of InGuardians, leads a demo-heavy webinar – you’ll learn how to break a real world exploit with configuration, even when the vulnerability hasn’t yet gone public and there’s no patch available. This on-demand demonstration makes the Internet safer for the Linux and Unix systems under your protection. From this session, you will:

  • Learn how the Internet’s bad actors abuse a new vulnerability to exploit a Linux system
  • Understand and be able to use two different defensive techniques to break attacks on their own systems
