How improved IR Strategies combined with Advanced Endpoint and Network Protection can Enhance Your Security Environment presented at CornerstonesofTrust 2016

by Araceli Tre Gomes,

Summary : Abstract: Today's threats are nearly always new and never before seen. Today's attacks are often designed with the exfiltration of data and destruction of resources in mind. When faced with approaches where attacks go unnoticed for long periods of time, how do defenders combat things that have never been seen before? Once alerted, how can organizations quickly, efficiently, and effectively react?
The new normal is that incidents are inevitable and organizations need to be continually prepared with Incident Response and readiness programs that apply meaningful threat research to internal control processes, and arm defenders with the level of skill and expertise required to keep pace with an adaptive threat landscape. This presentation will review trends in threat research and Threat Intelligence as they relate to commodity and targeted attacks, as well as how broader applications of malware, network and endpoint protections can address the security gap to build more robust response security programs.
