Three Threat Trends: How to Respond for the Pain to Go Away

Presented by

Augusto Barros, VP, Cybersecurity Evangelist and Oliver Rochford, Senior Director, Cybersecurity Evangelist

About this talk

Recent trends in the threat landscape challenge even mature security organizations to respond resiliently: • Ransomware and machine speed attacks, • Living-off-the-land techniques, • The adoption of threat actor automation tools. Attacks are now conducted at industrial scale and volumes, leveraging techniques that make detection even harder than ever. In response, defenders adopt an emerging suite of capabilities that include behavioral analytics, automated DFIR, and detection-as-code to adapt and even the odds. This talk will explore these innovative defense approaches and how they can help you fight against the evolving threats in this next phase of the cyber offensive/adaptive defensive cycle. Join Augusto Barros, VP of Solutions, and Oliver Rochford, Senior Director, both Cybersecurity evangelists at Securonix, to learn about: • The need for speed and automation in responding to machine speed threats. • Why file-less and malware-less attacks stress traditional detection and how behavioral analysis helps. • How orchestration and automation are being for bad and good. Augusto Barros was most recently the Research VP in the Gartner for Technical Professionals (GTP) Security and Risk Management group. He has over 20 years of experience in the IT security industry, both as an analyst and a security architect and officer for large enterprises. Oliver Rochford has worked in cybersecurity for over 20 years, including as a penetration tester, consultant, researcher, and writer for Securityweek, CSO Online, and Dark Reading.
