Reimagining Security to Combat Advanced Attackers presented at Shakacon 2014

by David Dewalt,

Summary : Despite substantial investments in traditional security technologies, the vast majority of advanced attacks go undetected and proliferate undefended. Determined attackers pick their targets for a reason and architect their attacks to easily bypass traditional security technology and defense models.
In this presentation Mr. DeWalt will share FireEye’s latest observations from front lines of the cyber battlefield on how threat actors are exploiting the security gap. Specific topics will include:
Who is the adversary and what are they after?
How do attackers circumvent traditional security technologies?
What are the latest tools, techniques and procedures attackers are using?
What are the best sources of threat intelligence?
What can security teams do to better defend themselves?
