Presentation #1

Incident Detection and Response: Moving Beyond the Kill Chain

As digital attacks continue to occur, there is an established pattern exhibited by the majority of attackers. While Incident Response professionals understand these patterns, breaches continue to occur.  The “Cyber Kill Chain” established by Lockheed Martin creates a taxonomy of attack progression from the attackers point of view, however, the kill chain is focused on external visibility.    This presentation will use real world details from 3 breaches across multiple industries to create a new perspective that organizations can use when thinking about breach response and prevention.

Presentation #2

Conventus Presentation

Security Intelligence and Operations – The Importance of Context

In an effort to understand and address each of our unique security environments, we often look to our peers in attempt to gain clarity, understanding, and efficiency in our own strategies and operations. As consumers of that data we’re continually asking for more; more information, more detail, more sources, more…everything. Yet the more data we gather and analyze, the more we tend to lose sight of our own unique situations. This discussion will highlight the importance of developing, maintaining, and applying context to security intelligence and operations in order to drive quickly towards action.

Presentation #3

“Say what you mean: A survey of InfoSec clichés and other miscommunication”

This presentation will evaluate common language used by InfoSec community in communication with our non-technology counterparts.

The presentation will also provide updates from ISSA International.
