Actionable Detects: Blue Team Cyber Defense Tactics

  • Seth Misenar
  • Sunday, August 26th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Organizations relying on 3rd parties to detect breaches can go almost a full year before finding out they have been compromised. Detect the breach yourself, and on average you will find it within about a month of the initial occurrence. Considering detection and defense against modern adversaries too costly to perform yourself can be a very expensive miscalculation considering the substantially increased price of response and recovery with breach duration.

Seth Misenar's ever evolving, Actionable Detects, provides you thoughts, tactics, techniques, and procedures to once again take pride in your Blue Team Cyber capabilities. Not applying these lessons learned could prove costly in the face of adapting threat actors. Dig in and learn to hold your head high when talking about your defensive cyber operations capabilities.
