Crack the Code and Defeat the Advanced Adversary
- Brian O'Neil, SE Manager at Palo Alto Networks
- Thursday, June 18th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm
Cybersecurity can sometimes feel like a puzzle, a code to crack. This isn't how it should be. Adversaries don't need to win. Stopping them doesn't require endless time and resources because most just take the path of least resistance for the easiest win. Your objective as a security practitioner is to raise the total cost of a successful attack, to make your organization a less appealing target.
Join Palo Alto Networks for a lunch and learn that will take a detailed look at real attacks and how you can crack the code to defend your organization. Specifically, you'll learn:
- What tools, techniques, and procedures advanced attackers are really using.
- Why you need an intelligence-based approach that stops attacks at every point in the Cyber Attack Lifecycle, no matter what form it takes.
- How to architect for prevention, and plan for detection.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Vendor: Events hosted by external vendor exhibitors.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
- Master's Degree Presentation: Presentations given by SANS Technology Institute's Master's Degree candidates.
