Countering the Advanced Persistent Threat presented at CISOminneapolis 2015

by Michael l. Kearn, John Bloomer,

Summary : The battle lines have been drawn for a long time, but the bad guys are using more sophisticated tools and are better organized and more persistent than ever. It is no longer a question of if or even when an attack will occur. The question now is how are you handling the threats already in your network? Due to their lucrative, targeted and strategic nature, advanced persistent threats are ”in” exactly where they’re meant to be — where the money is and where disruptions can be carried out. This discussion will focus the security mindset from ‘keep them out’ to ‘they’re in, react accordingly.’
