Timelessly known for it's superior defense, Sparta was known as one of the greatest cities without walls to ever be defended. It's walls were it's mobile and highly trained units called Spartans. Often outnumbered in battle, their defensive techniques stood the test of time during their reign.

Over the past decade In IT we have watched our walls dissolve and become porous. Our perimeter has shifted. As defenders we are highly outnumbered by motivated attackers. We are rightfully driven to SSL everywhere architectures but then lack visibility into incoming threats and inherently trust way too many root CA's. We implement things like MFA but is that enough?

Come explore these topics with me and learn how to defend like an IT spartan in a world without walls.
