Top Cyber Intelligence Experts to Gather in Virginia for Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit & Training

  • Bethesda, MD
  • January 19, 2016

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training today announced the SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Summit & Training taking place February 3 - 10 in Alexandria, Virginia. Top cyber threat intelligence experts from Lockheed Martin, JPMorgan Chase, U.S. Department of Homeland Security's National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), and more. Summit speakers will share how organizations can build effective cyber threat intelligence analysis capabilities.

According to Mike Cloppert, CIRT chief research analyst, Lockheed Martin and summit co-chair, "The recent Ukrainian power grid intrusion highlights the importance of reliable analysis in threat intelligence work. Ukrainian officials have accused Russian actors of conducting the operation, which resulted in widespread black-outs during cold winter months, risking the lives of many citizens. Conclusions drawn from the investigation to that end will therefore have profound implications, from tactical net defense to regional conflict and stability. This is the most recent among countless examples underscoring the importance of maturing analyst tradecraft and capability at every organization."

The 2016 Summit will focus on specific analysis techniques and capabilities that can be used to properly create and maintain Cyber Threat Intelligence in your organization. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly with some of the nation's top CTI analysis experts who will share how to detect and respond to all ranges of adversaries including some of the most sophisticated threats targeting networks today.
