Tactical SecOps: A Guide to Precision Security Operations

  • Kevin Johnson
  • Tuesday, November 13th, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Security has become a major part of what our organizations expect and require. Our operations teams are being bombarded from everyone including the audit/legal teams, security teams and the upstart hactivist script kiddie that found the low hanging fruit of our network. But all of this happens on top of the daily grind we have in just keeping our systems running.

In this talk, by Kevin Johnson of Secure Ideas, we will be exploring how operational teams can embed security testing within their current activities. By using an understanding of attacks and history of operational responsibilities, Kevin has built a guide for IT operations which includes security testing and verification techniques. This guide uses their professionally evil approach to security and provides understandable and open source methods and tools that can provide the precision information that is needed for response instead of the flood of noise most admins get from the tools being pushed on them today.
