Whether you’ve embraced IPv6 or are hesitating to make the commitment, it’s critical to understand the security impacts that IPv6-capable devices already in your network may have on your business. And there’s a lot to learn.
That’s why we’ve put together not one but two one-hour webinars on the topic. Part one is entitled Business Risks of the IPv6 Enabled Network and takes place on Tuesday, September 15 at 10 a.m. PDT; the follow-up is entitled Securing IPv6 Against New & Evolving Threats and takes place on Wednesday, September 30 at 10 a.m. PDT.
Even if you haven’t deployed IPv6, it’s currently running on your network in systems like Linux, Android, BSD, and Microsoft Windows. Even though IPv6 has only been making news recently, it’s been evolving for 20 years; and hackers have had plenty of time to learn how to exploit it.
Many factors contribute to IPv6 being vulnerable. Simply disabling the IPv6 protocol and reverting back to IPv4 may leave you no more protected (and isn’t even an option for operating systems that rely on IPv6, like Windows). Unsure what to do? Attending these webinars is a good place to start.
In part 1 of the series, you’ll learn:
* The difference between myth and reality when it comes to securing your IPv6 deployment.
* How dual-stack configurations can double your security effort-and your attack surface.
* Where you’re most vulnerable and how to gain new visibility into your IPv6 network.

In part 2 of the series, we’ll take a technical deep dive into attacks that can exploit IPv6 and discuss common techniques used to mitigate them. You’ll learn about:
* The latent threat issue raised by software such as Linux, Android, and Microsoft Windows that enable IPv6 regardless of user input, configuration, or notification.
* IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol threats.
* First-hop security countermeasures.
