1) Your Sector Doesn’t Matter:  Achieving Effective Threat Prioritization

Speaker: John Hultquist, John Miller

Many organizations’ security functions determine what threats they care about based on what threats are known to be affecting their sector, or comparably simple criteria. In reality, this approach is poorly suited to dealing with the significant security issues of today. Malicious actors scope their victims based on multiple factors, and understanding these factors is essential to managing risk.

2) Au Natural: Adventures in NLP  and Threat Intel

Speaker: Adam Meyers

In July 2016, Google released their Cloud Natural Language API; multilingual entity extraction sounded like a fun thing to play with and it was cheap. This led to a series of experiments to derive a usable prototype for NLP integration with threat intelligence. This presentation will explore the use of NLP in Threat Intel and demonstrates findings from its use against the Virus Total platform.

4) Keeping Up with the Adversary: Creating a Threat-Based Cyber-Team

Speakers: Todd Kight, Anthony Talamantes

With advanced cyber-actors evolving quickly and becoming more stealthy, it has become imperative to question the status quo of our existing cyber-operations. This session will outline how a case study and incident response led to changes in focus and philosophy and how that changed the structure of Defensive Cyber Operations.

5) Weaponizing Intelligence: Interdiction in Today’s Threat Landscape

Speaker: Matthew Olney

The threat environment is evolving every single day. As adversaries find more efficient and effective ways of making money they will reinvest that money to create more advanced and evasive malware. Disrupting that economy is key. This talk will focus on moving from gathering threat intelligence toward providing consistent offensive threat interdiction.

6) Intelligence-Led Security: Powering the Future of Cyber-Defense

Speaker: Marshall Heilman

A new class of intelligence-led security is powering the future of cyber-defense, driven by deeper and broader visibility into the attacker ecosystem. This session will look at how intelligence is influencing the development of security products/services and how defenses will benefit from the integration of data from across IT/security operations with insights on the evolving threat landscape.

7) A Vision for Shared, Central Intelligence to Ebb a Growing Flood of Alerts

Speaker: Dan Plastina

Despite the positive advancements in machine learning and intelligence, security professionals remain overwhelmed. How is it that we keep wasting time and energy on analyzing and assembling the information presented by our supposedly “intelligent” solutions? This session will explore a conjoint approach that would help our industry climb out of the sea of data that is most certainly going to drown us.
