Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Hackers: Responsibility and Reality

Like you, I consider myself a hacker; I like to push boundaries and improve things, I like to learn, I like to share what I know. Many people have helped me learn, and I hope I’ve helped others- which raises a question: is helping others a responsibility? This leads to larger questions: are there obligations inherent in being a hacker, and if so, what are they?

This discussion will explore these questions, and look at the logical (and possibly illogical) extremes. If the hacker ethic does impose burdens on us, do we all have to hold ourselves to a daunting standard like Johnny Long? What if our sense of duty is misguided? Many would say that Anonymous and Lulzsec do harm, but they would claim otherwise. If we have no obligations to our communities or society at large, is the hacker ethic sustainable, and does it matter either way?

What are our responsibilities, and who judges us on our performance? Please join me in this discussion and help explore these issues.

  • Machine Learning Can Address the Most Pressing Security Challenge Feb 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jason Matlof, EVP at LightCyber
    Noise is the enemy of breach detection and response. After a major data breach it is often the case that signs of an attacker existed, but were buried in thousands of other security alerts that were mainly false positives.

    With machine learning, meaningful signs of an attack are more easily detected and isolated, so a security operator can focus on precisely the right issue.

    This session will examine:
    - The problem of noise
    - The role of machine learning in sifting through vast amounts of data to get to the fidelity needed to detect an attacker
    - Best practices for including machine learning in your security operations

  • SECOPS Automation on the Rise: Challenges, Directions, Futures Recorded: Feb 23 2017 33 mins
    Tom Gorup, Director of Security Operations at Rook Security
    With the growing number of newly-released, longtime-funded automation tools and platforms, it’s clear that network security operations automation has reached an inflection point. While automation promises to provide significant value to security and network operations teams, along with hopes and promises comes concerns about limitations, potential failures, and critical oversights—especially when it comes to automating incident response. These limitations don’t stem from a lack of APIs, compute power, or the advancement of machine learning or artificial intelligence, but rather from the tools that are doing the detection, notification, and remediation.

    Security operations expert Tom Gorup addresses short- and long-term automation challenges and provides analysis on why investments should be focused on arming people with more assistive technology, rather than attempting to remove humans from the equation entirely.

    About the Presenter:
    As Director of Security Operations for Rook Security, Tom Gorup oversees Managed Security Services and develops proprietary security operations management tools and services for organizations ranging from Fortune 100 firms to fast-growing startups. Prior to joining Rook, Tom served 6 years in the U.S. Army. As an Infantry Squad Leader, Tom served two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he received a Purple Heart alongside several other awards for actions on the battlefield. Tom is GCIA certified, a participant in the GIAC mentor program and advisory board, Indiana Infragard Sector Specialist, and on the NexTech advisory board.
  • The Promise and the Perils of Machine Learning and Automating Cybersecurity Recorded: Feb 23 2017 58 mins
    John Bambenek, Threat Systems Manager, Fidelis Cybersecurity
    Those defending against cyberattacks are overwhelmed by the shear volume of incidents to respond to. It is so bad that it has been said there may be as many as 1 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs. Machine learning and automation is often heralded as a way to deal with this problem so that many incidents can be dealt with requiring pressing a button. While there is much promise is machine learning there are also many perils that need to be considered. Attackers know how we defend ourselves and they do use our defenses against us.

    This talk will cover some of the open-source tools and techniques available for organizations to use to defend themselves while keeping in mind how attackers could undermine our efforts.
  • [VIDEO Panel] Securing the Cloud and Driving Digital Transformation Recorded: Feb 23 2017 57 mins
    Josh Downs, BrightTALK (moderator); Dan Webb, James Brown, Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh & David Howorth, Alert Logic
    Digital transformation is changing the business landscape for every organisation, with the way new technologies can unlock competitive advantage, enable efficiently, agility and enhance customer experiences. The cloud is where this innovation is happening and enabling this transformation, but when you take advantage of its possibilities, it’s crucial that you secure your cloud applications and workloads.

    If you’re building applications or migrating workloads to the cloud, you’re probably like most organisations – trying to determine what security controls are needed, and how to integrate workload security without slowing down innovation or needing to add dedicated security staff – which these days is harder to find and more expensive to keep.

    During this panel discussion you will hear from industry experts as they discuss what steps and considerations should be taken when moving to any cloud. Where are the responsibilities of security and how do you maintain visibility and control over your data, including:

    - Why when moving business critical applications to the cloud you require a different approach to security?
    - Best Practices for minimizing risk in your cloud adoption
    - Filling the Cloud Security IT Skills Gap
    - Managing the Challenges of the Cloud under EU GDPR

  • The Role of Orchestration in Incident Response Recorded: Feb 23 2017 45 mins
    Ted Julian, VP of Product Management, IBM Resilient
    Faced with an avalanche of alerts, insufficient staffing, and a bewildering regulatory environment it's no wonder that most organizations struggle to respond effectively to cyber attacks. Successfully resolving attacks requires fast, intelligent, and decisive action - organizations need to have an orchestrated plan in place before an attack occurs. Indeed, the best organizations leverage an orchestrated response capability to achieve cyber resilience, the ability to weather the inevitable cyber attacks as just another part of doing business.

    Join IBM Resilient’s Ted Julian, VP of Product Management to explore the latest incident response methodology and technology. Can automation really save the day? Or are the naysayers correct that the automation cure is worse than the disease itself? From instant escalation, to automatic enrichment, to guided mitigation, Ted will explore the latest incident response techniques and share what works and what doesn't. Attendees will gain a framework for understanding their incident response capability and a maturity model for evaluating opportunities for orchestration / automation.

    Stuart Davis, Director, Mandiant & David Grout, Systems Engineering Director, FireEye
    Protecting against data loss is a key focus of any organisation’s information security program. However it is not always that easy to put long term initiatives in place with consistent monitoring and response effectiveness to mitigate against advanced attacks where intellectual property may be the target.

    In this webinar Stuart and David will explain how effective incident response, long term monitoring and threat intelligence can help deal with data protection against advanced persistent threats (APTs) in this modern age of cyber warfare.
  • How to Gate, Watch and Guard your Sensitive Data Everywhere Recorded: Feb 23 2017 55 mins
    Sunil Choudrie
    The sad truth is that Invaders are trying to breach your defenses every day. With five out of every six large organizations being targeted by advanced attackers, protecting your data is a smart way to keep you from becoming tomorrow’s headline.

    So what does data protection mean? A comprehensive approach allows the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands.

    We will explain how Symantec technology addresses this approach and how you will benefit from:

    •Grant and ensure access only for authorized users with strong, multi-factor authentication, on any device, including BYOD.

    •Watching over data wherever it lives—in the cloud, on premise, in motion, and at rest.

    •Preventing data loss with unified policy controls to encrypt or block vulnerable information before it leaves the gate.
