Title: Use Case Driven Security Monitoring

Abstract: Security Monitoring is essential to any security operation, but with blurred boundaries, thousands of users and systems, and millions of events it can quickly become an arduous task. How do you determine what to monitor, alert on, and respond to? The answer to these usually exist in the details of a well-defined security monitoring use case. This talk defines what a use case is, the process for defining and managing use cases, best practices and sources for generating new use cases.

Name: Scott Scheferman – Cylance – Senior Director of Global Services

Title: “Speed to Action” – The machine-speed endpoint and identity challenge

Abstract: As we lean into 2020, two things become apparent: 1) threats are happening at machine-speed, and 2) defenses need to be able to react autonomously, in real-time, in order to be able to interject the kill-chain. The new playing field requires anticipation, autonomous action, and high confidence. It is measured in microseconds instead of days. Attackers have pushed their intelligence to the edge device, and now, so must defenders. A key takeaway: Identity must become a new source of continuous high confidence. Let’s dive in.

Bio: With over 20 years of information security experience, Scott has performed in multiple roles in both the federal/DoD and commercial spaces. Most notable would be the Technical Lead and PM for a DoD agency’s certification authority, where he led a team of 20 cyber risk analysts directing over 800 validators (field security testers) around the globe in performing over 2,000 security assessments per year. In that role, Scott also made final security risk determinations on several high-profile cloud/SaaS adoption technologies, guiding a tiger team on developing custom security testing criteria, threat analysis, attack use-cases scenarios, and broader cloud-provider security challenges facing the program.
