Disruption 2015: "The Evolution of Threat Intelligence"

TOPIC: A discussion on the progress of threat intelligence

WHO: CEO Hugh Njemanze

WHEN: 4:15-4:55 p.m. PDT

WHERE: Disrupt!ion 2015, Luxor Hotel & Casino, Egyptian Ballroom, 3900 South Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, Nev.

"Cyber criminals are innovating much faster and delivering many more sophisticated attacks; as a result, threat intelligence has gained significant importance in the ever-changing threat landscape," said Njemanze. "However, there is still much confusion about what threat intelligence is, how it's consumed, and how to best utilize all the aggregated data. In this panel discussion, we'll talk about the progress of threat intelligence technology, including its adoption and how we can make it a more effective tool for organizations."

Title: "Deploying, Managing and Leveraging Honeypots in the Enterprise Using Open-Source Tools"

TOPIC: An overview of the current state-of-the-art of leveraging open-source tools to build a novel intrusion-detection system inside the enterprise.

WHO: Director of Labs Jason Trost and Principal Threat Researcher Nicholas Albright

WHEN: Tuesday, August 4, from 8:30 a.m.-12:25 p.m. PDT

"This year is turning out to be the most spectacular year of high-profile compromises across almost every vertical," said Trost. "Many companies are starting to consider new options to raise the bar for intrusion detection and incident response, including deploying honeypots. At BSidesLV, we'll discuss real-world deployments of honeypots, both inside and outside the firewall -- what worked and what didn't -- and offer recommendations for getting the most out of these unconventional network sensors."
