Going to the 2014 RSA Conference Next Week?

Alexander Watson

This is truly a fascinating time for the cybersecurity industry and our skill sets have never been more in demand. I see the RSA Conference, Black Hat and other cybersecurity events, as an opportunity to meet with my peers and discuss how they are solving today’s toughest cybersecurity challenges. A big part of having a discussion is coming to the table with new information that might change how other security professionals approach their positions.

This year at the 2014 RSA Conference I’d like to invite other attendees to join me to discuss a new advanced persistent threat (APT) detection technique and join my security labs colleague, Jeff Debrosse, to discuss how to best deploy sandboxing techniques. Below are the details on our presentations:

Use Anomalies to Detect Advanced Attacks Before Bad Guys Use It Against You

4–5 p.m. (North, Room: 132, Track SPO2-T09)

I will reveal new techniques for finding anomalies in application telemetry and error reporting that indicate advanced threats. Attendees will learn how to remediate risks and thwart advanced attacks. I’ll discuss how many popular applications leak data, that could be used by adversaries to quickly profile your network and identify attack vectors.
