    Welcome Keynote
    One of the top complaints about the information security team is that they stand in the way of operations. How can security be aligned with operations? Can information security actually facilitate operations? Could there be long term liability and impact for the enterprise if we fail to align operations and security? In this talk David Hoelzer will explore the issues and provide insights from real world case studies in an attempt to offer some real world solutions. In addition, David will offer some practical insights on limiting long term liability based on his experience as an expert working for federal regulators in the financial services space.

    Revamping your IR program: 8 EFFECTIVE recommendations to get your monitoring & IR capabilities back in shape
    The financial services industry remains a prime target for cyber criminals and putting out fires after security breaches are part of our way of life. Keeping up with the sheer amount of incidents and the complexity of new vulnerabilities and malware variants is more challenging than ever, and the shortage of security skills force us to do more with less. In this scenario, how can you make sure you are doing your best to avoid the same errors that seem to be at the root of most breaches affecting the financial services sector? In this talk you will learn what works and what does not from the experiences of our Foundstone investigators who have assisted with more than 200 cases in 2014. We will also discuss 8 effective activities that every financial services organization should be adopting and we will provide an open-source tool that attendees can leverage to hunt for indicators of compromise in their network.
