The Modern Adversary, Targeted Threats and Endpoint Security presented at CISOGlobalSummit 2014

by Barry Hensley,

Summary : In nearly every major security breach over the past 12 months involving an actor operating from outside, endpoint compromise has been a consistent theme. Consequently, a defense-in-depth approach is at the forefront of information security postures, incorporating defense measures while also providing visibility into endpoints and the network. This discussion will explain what endpoint capabilities and opportunities exist for preventing, detecting and responding to advanced threats and disrupting the actor’s “kill chain” sooner. Barry Hensley, senior director of security research for Dell SecureWorks, will share real-world examples of threat actor methods and how security postures must continue to adapt to counter targeted threats.
