  • Using the Cyber Table Top (CTT) Process to Perform a Cyber Risk Assessment Nov 3 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Katie Premore (Lockheed Martin)
    The Cyber Table Top (CTT) process was developed in 2014 to support DoD customers who were overwhelmed by the sheer number of findings produced by traditional cybersecurity scanning tools and checklist processes. These tools and processes identify a very large number of possible vulnerabilities for a system but didn’t provide context for which vulnerabilities might truly lead to potential mission failure. Since budgets are limited, customers need methods of focusing on the most critical vulnerabilities which present the highest risk to their systems. The CTT process is focused on producing actionable cyber vulnerability data in an approachable risk matrix format to enable teams to focus resources. CTTs bring together system developers and maintainers, system users, and expert red teams to execute a multi-day wargame that focuses on the security evaluation of threats that would deny, degrade, disrupt or destroy a system and prohibit users from accomplishing their core mission. By assessing the potential mission impact of vulnerabilities as well as their likelihood/difficulty it provides a way to understand the relative risks of various vulnerabilities and focus the remediation efforts. The CTT process has been used to support DoD system cyber security evaluations in various lifecycle stages from design through long-term maintenance. It has been used to identify and mitigate threats that later were witnessed “in the wild” and caused significant negative impacts to other systems. It has become so popular that an official DoD Guidebook and training course was developed in 2018.

  • No Silver Bullet – Essence and Accident in Cyber Resiliency Engineering Recorded: Sep 14 2021 57 mins
    Teresa Merklin
    Cybersecurity incidents and failures impact critical public infrastructure, national defense, corporate economic interests, and personal privacy. As the magnitude and frequency of cyber events continues to escalate, vendors and agencies are desperately seeking solutions to solve this issue once and for all. In the 1980’s the software development industry was facing similar challenges. That crisis prompted Frederick Brooks to write his iconic paper “No Silver Bullet – Essence and Accident in Software Engineering.” The solutions and technologies detailed in that paper are eerily similar to the “breakthrough” solutions currently proposed for cyber. This presentation examines the “Silver Bullets” of cybersecurity, lessons we can learn from that parallel history, and the essence of challenges that confront modern security practitioners.

    Teresa Merklin is a Fellow at Lockheed Martin where she specializes in Cyber Risk Assessment and Engineering for Cyber Resiliency. She is currently attached to the Aeronautics Cyber Range which performs cyber assessment and penetration testing across the complete portfolio of Lockheed Martin aircraft and related systems. She has 30+ years of career experience starting out in embedded software development which slowly morphed into cybersecurity over time. Teresa holds a BSEE from Oklahoma State University, a Masters of Software Engineering from Texas Christian University, and an MBA from the University of Dallas.
