Overview

As witnessed in 2014, big companies present big targets for hackers but no company is immune to hacking. To cope with these increasing threats, speed of response is essential to mitigate damage and data loss. Instead of gathering evidence after a potential incident, the key to successful investigations is continuous monitoring and system "scraping."

Since attacks are assumed to be inevitable, the key is preparing for a breach so that once the threat is identified, the next steps of isolation, investigation and corrective actions can be executed as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

This webcast will provide an overview of the resources including a process that can be used to detect attackers more accurately and efficiently, thereby mitigating damage and data loss.

At Carbon Black he was customer advocate and support lead. He spent 12 years in federal cyber operations, including an active duty tour with the Air Force's Information Warfare Center and as director/general manager of one of the top providers of federal computer network operations (CNO) R&D services, with about 100 kernel programmers, reverse engineers and vulnerability researchers supporting a dozen different federal programs. Guy's time in the Air Force gave him an intimate understanding of the shortfalls of enterprise network defense technology. Frustrated by the "state of the art" and narrow thinking of industry, he has been a strong advocate for shifting security investment from protection to detection and response since 2002. As a full-stack engineer, proven leader and public speaker, he can move from the lab to the podium to the boardroom and back. Guy a bachelor's degree in computer engineering from Case Western Reserve University and a master's degree in computer science from Johns Hopkins.
