An Intelligence Driven Approach to Security Validation

Presented by

Shashwath Hegde, Solutions Architect, APAC

About this talk

A recent SANS study showed that while organizations used threat intelligence to hypothesize where attackers may be found, they lack the investigative skills to conduct searches. This continues to be a growing problem in the cyber security industry as organizations struggle to justify the high-cost of their defences. We make significant investments to justify our methods of stopping evil. However, we rarely spend time in measuring our methods or investments. Instead, we rely on assumptions to guide our decisions and justify our judgements. In this session, we will explore real world data and dive deep into the performance of cybersecurity controls across enterprise networks; from email, endpoint, network to cloud-based controls and examine some alarming results. As organizations continue to struggle to justify the high-cost of their defences, Security Validation provides a solution to validate, consolidate, recoup and maximize the value from existing investments.

Mandiant Security Validation (formerly Verodin), has made it possible for organizations to validate the effectiveness of cyber security controls, thereby protecting their reputation and economic value. By measuring and testing security environments against both known and newly discovered threats, organizations can identify risks in security controls before a breach occurs and permits companies to rapidly adapt their defenses to the evolving threat landscape. Cybersecurity experts from around the globe share experiences about their journey to increase security effectiveness.
