Brian Krebs to Keynote the SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit in Washington D.C.

  • Bethesda, MD
  • December 9, 2014

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced renowned cyber security expert and investigative journalist, Brian Krebs, will deliver the keynote address on February 2nd at SANS' Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit 2015 in Washington, D.C.

Krebs, a former Washington Post reporter, runs the widely read cyber security blog, Krebs on Security, which reports on the digital underground and the profit-seeking cybercriminals who make billions off malware, spam, fraud and heists. Krebs has a vast knowledge of Russia's digital underground and is considered by many to be the best threat intelligence analyst in the world. Krebs was the first to uncover major breaches at Adobe, Target and Neiman Marcus. Krebs is also the author of Spam Nation: The Inside Story of Organized Cybercrime-from Global Epidemic to Your Front Door. He also recently appeared on a 60 Minutes segment about credit and debit card breaches that have hit countless retailers and consumers over the past year.

"Brian Krebs has been instrumental in bringing awareness of cyber threats to the forefront of the conversation, having been the first journalist to break major breaches including Target and Home Depot," says Mike Cloppert, Summit co-chair and Lockheed Martin-CIRT. "It will be a real treat for attendees to get first-hand insight into his personal tradecraft and pick up strategies they can use to hone their own threat intel programs."

The Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit is a two-day event focused on enabling organizations to build effective cyber threat intelligence analysis capabilities. Most organizations know what threat intelligence is, but have no real concept on how to create and produce proper intelligence. The goal of this summit is to equip attendees with knowledge on the tools, methodologies and processes they need to move forward with cyber threat intelligence.

The summit is held in conjunction with an extensive six-day training event which teaches specific analysis techniques and capabilities that can be used to properly create and maintain Cyber Threat Intelligence in an organization. What attendees learn will help them detect and respond to some of the most sophisticated threats targeting your networks.
