February is Network Segmentation Month at MSI. During February, our blog and social media content will focus on network segmentation initiatives. A how, why, when, what and who – kind of look at creating secure enclaves within your network.
These enclaves could be based on risk zones, types of systems, types of access, business process, regulatory requirements or many other meta factors.
We will discuss different reasons for segmenting, approaches to segmentation, some of the lessons we’ve learned from segmenting some of the largest and most complex environments in our 25 year history. It won’t all be positive – we’ll also share some of the ways that segmentation fails, some of the challenges and some of the drawbacks of segmenting networks.
So, strap in and stay tuned for a month of content focused on using segmentation to better secure your environment.
As always, if you have stories to share or want to discuss a specific segmentation question, you can do that via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via Twitter to @microsolved or to me personally. (@lbhuston) MSI is always available to help you with segmentation projects, be that planning, implementation, oversight or attestation. We have a proprietary, data-centric approach to this work which we have been using for several years. You can learn more about it here – MachineTruth. We look forward to hearing from you!
