Using Machine Learning to Detect Command Line Anomalies
As we all know, cybersecurity is often a game of cat and mouse - attackers are always trying to outsmart us defenders. At Adobe, we face the same issues and concerns as all the other major companies. We must ask ourselves simple questions with non-simple answers: How do we ensure that all assets are protected? How do we ensure that our employees are secure from the outside threats? How can we mitigate future emerging threats? Attackers will always try to find the next unconventional attack that will bypass our security systems and our security mindset. In this case, how do we protect our self from the unknown? We believe machine learning techniques can assist us in this defense. This presentation will discuss one of our current machine learning innovations that is helping us detect anomalies in command lines. Command line interfaces are frequently used by users, system administrators and applications alike. Many applications launch console scripts to perform tasks, especially in cloud services where conformity in service environments is also helpful for security. When they can, attackers do like to leverage those native system capabilities. This presentation will discuss machine learning methods developed by Adobe computer scientists to help detect anomalies in command line scripts and calls to help prevent these types of attacks.

The very nature of how software applications are built today has changed from stem to stern, with public cloud at the foundation of this shift. Companies that have successfully ‘digitally transformed’ are thriving, while laggards continue to languish. While digital transformation continues at a rapid pace, security and governance]has just not kept up as evidenced by so many cloud data breaches. In this talk, you will learn:
Why digital transformation turns old-security ways upside down
How new approaches must be built for cloud from the ground up
Why identity and data are the key critical control points for public cloud governance
The ticking time-bomb of complexity hidden in cloud-provider IAM models
5 steps organizations can take to de-risk their cloud
David Lenoe Sr. Sr. Director of Product Security Adobe
Use of 3rd -party cloud technology and service vendors is common to pretty much any business. Maintaining your own security posture requires that you also ensure those vendors are maintaining comparable posture. However, what is the right way to assess a vendor’s security posture? What are the relevant questions to ask and documentation to request? What is not relevant in such an assessment? At Adobe, we are in an interesting position in the industry in that we are both a large technology and service vendor as well as one of the largest consumers of 3rd party technology and services. Through developing our own vendor assessment program, our ongoing work with industry standards groups and consortia, and evaluation of our own security practices by our own customers, we have learned a lot about what to do right with these assessments – as well as a few things that are not quite so productive. Join Dave Lenoe, director of product security for Adobe, as he presents our lessons learned and best practices that can help you develop a successful cloud vendor security assessment program.

Today’s network security architectures, tools and platforms fall short of meeting the challenges presented by current security threats. Zero Trust is emerging as a popular anti-hack strategy and, as the concept implies, requires that users are not allowed any access to anything until they are authenticated. Attaching the moniker “Zero Trust” to solutions, while popular, misleads one into a false sense of security (no pun intended).
In this webinar, you’ll learn how a Zero Trust implementation using SDP is applied to network connectivity, meaning it is agnostic of the underlying untrusted IP-based infrastructure, and hones in on securing connections. The webinar will delve into the steps to implement SDP and facilitate organizations to defend from new variations of old attack methods that are constantly surfacing in existing perimeter-centric networking and infrastructure models.
Separating the control plane where trust is established, from the data plane where actual data is transferred.
Hiding the infrastructure using a dynamic deny-all firewall - the point where all unauthorized packets are dropped for logging and analyzing traffic.
Using single packet authorization to authenticate and authorize users and validate devices for access to protected services and least privilege is implicit.
Over recent months, there has been an increasing number of cyber-breaches being reported in Asia Pacific, particularly from the public sector. Yet there have also been an increasing number of cybersecurity and data protection policies being put in place. Are these sufficient to assuage the public’s concerns about cloud computing and shared services? What are the trends in cybersecurity and data protection regulations within the Asia Pacific and ASEAN region?

Jerry Archer, SVP & Chief Security Officer, Sallie Mae
As businesses are transitioning to new cloud services increasing their connectedness, it creates new issues like decreased visibility, new obscure vulnerabilities and cyber criminal opportunities. Simultaneously, new laws like GDPR and CCPA require data owners and aggregators to have visibility and understanding who is capturing, accessing, and using and the security around it. Techniques such as tokenization, data masking, data substitution and field encryption are being used to lower the risk of sensitive data exposure. While these techniques may satisfy data breach laws, the court of public opinion does not yet understand or appreciate these technologies.
In this webinar, Jerry Archer, CSO of Sallie Mae will discuss liability, data lineage, retention, deletion and other aspects of the proliferation of cloud based services as well as considerations as businesses transition to the cloud.
We read about hacks and breaches on a daily basis, but what do we actually know about these cybercrime groups and how they conduct these attacks?
In this session, we will dive into basic hacking techniques, demonstrate what types of tools hackers are using today, examine the scope of these attacks, and discuss best practices on how to protect ourselves and our businesses. During the session we will review security issues with people, process and technology, see how OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) is leveraged for social engineering attacks and review some of the latest attacks seen in the wild. We will close the session by examining how to operationalize threat intelligence using security frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK framework in conjunction with cyber threat intelligence best practices.
Prithvi Bisht, Senior Manager of Secure Software Engineering at Adobe
One of the biggest challenges and opportunities for an application security (AppSec) team in a cloud-centric world is to scale effectively. The general “shift-left” recommendation for security in the software development life cycle (SDLC) emphasizes early course correction to help bake in security controls and to reduce potential cost of changes introduced later in the SDLC. Shifting left then entails finding potential security concerns and the need for security controls by reviewing artifacts produced in requirements, architecture, design and coding phases. Unfortunately, outside of the coding phase, adding security in earlier phases can be mostly a manual activity. This limits security coverage and depth of exploration of products often manifesting as potential blind spots in product portfolios. As we move through the phases of the SDLC, the artifacts describe “intended” system functionality that may behave differently when implemented. The divergence in translating intentions (e.g. requirements/design) into reality (e.g. code) is, unfortunately, how bugs (including security) can get introduced.
Join Prithvi Bisht, senior manager of secure software engineering at Adobe, as we discuss these challenges as well as potential solutions to help you better scale your own application security efforts.

Engineering teams are adopting DevOps as a way to improve time to market and ensure high availability. In addition, these teams are becoming more and more distributed as a way to access a broader talent pool, drive down fixed costs and improve employee retention.
What this implies, especially in firms with a technology heavy workforce, is that you now have more privileged users (e.g., engineers, DevOps, SRE) than ever before deploying on cloud infrastructure and operating with elevated privileges over a remote connection.
Join us as former security practitioners (Genentech, Roche) and Remediant co-founders Tim Keeler and Paul Lanzi discuss a re-imagined privileged access management model for this new paradigm. In addition, they will also demo a practical implementation of this new model.
After this talk, you will walk away with a blueprint on how you can easily incorporate the following into your cloud workloads:
- Establish strong, VPN-less authentication and secrets management
- Enable just-in-time, just enough access to the workload with multi-factor authentication (MFA)
- Zero-trust authorization through removing standing privilege

In our increasingly interconnected world, the cloud is the answer. Services like Microsoft Office 365, Google Drive and AWS have embraced its ability to store data online and have created services to capitalize on its potential. Data access is never a problem if you have an internet connection. But before the dawn of the Internet, cloud computing didn’t exist. It simply couldn’t. The panel on this session was certainly around before the dawn! That’s why they don’t sweat the challenges that come with the cloud today, because they lived through the early days when solutions to IT Security problems had to be invented as you go “and they liked it”!
Join us as this distinct panel that represents the “grumpy old people” of security today discuss the evolution of compute and how being in the trenches of the “old days” has allowed them to make significant contributions to better security solutions today.
Peleus Uhley, Principal Scientist & Lead Security Strategist at Adobe
It is always important to stay current and explore new technologies. John Lambert is often quoted for saying, “Defenders think in lists. Attackers think in graphs. As long as this is true, attackers win.” This was one of the concepts that had originally hooked Peleus on the idea of exploring graphs in our tooling. There have been many examples of graph databases used to solve problems in network security, spam & fraud detection, and cloud configuration issues. Graphs have even been argued as a necessary component to move machine learning to the next level. However, there are not many examples specific to cloud app security.
In this webcast, Peleus Uhley, Principal Scientist & Lead Security Strategist at Adobe will explore some possible options for using graphs and graph databases to help accelerate solutions to some cloud security problems.
IoT in the enterprise will generate new information and business models that will strain on-prem capabilities and resources. The challenges can be resolved by judicious of the cloud. This potential upside needs to be weighted against risks around data privacy, visibility, and (in)effectiveness of traditional security tools and approaches.
The increasing digitisation of OT (Operations Technology) will impose similar challenges, with the added key dimension of safety on top of the traditional tripartite of confidentiality, integrity and availability.
The talk will thus dive deeper into these real-world challenges and share some practical considerations and approaches.
