|WHAT:||Proactive Cyber Threat Intelligence|
|WHEN:||Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 at 11:30AM|
|WHO:||Brian Foster, CTO, Damballa|
|ABSTRACT:||The tools, resources, and actions of today's security operations teams must evolve to compete with the growing threat landscape, sophistication of adversaries, and dynamic attack surface that is characteristic of modern enterprises. Historically, organizations have invested heavily in technology and people focused on defending the perimeter. But to stay ahead of the threat, that focus must shift to consider threat intelligence both within and beyond traditional enterprise boundaries. This expert panel will explore the pros and cons of cyber threat intelligence such as: discerning false flags from authenticated data points; vetting the evidence; alternative analysis; prioritizing and providing context of threat; and keeping tabs of critical partner and supplier introduced threats.|
LifeJourney is a web-based, interactive classroom experience where schools allow their students to “test drive” future careers in cybersecurity by enabling them to live a day in the life of one of America’s cybersecurity leaders. Students are able to test drive over 100 different cybersecurity LifeJourneys (e.g., Digital Forensic Analyst, Cyber Threat Manager, CISO, SCIF Designer, etc.) from leading companies like Damballa, enabling them to experience many different cyber careers, and thereby understanding the skills and ‘journey’ necessary to get an internship and a future job. Damballa’s Sladden will join teachers, principals and students on stage for the “Building the Cyber Generation” session at 3:30pm on the 8th.
