      Presentation: Arming SecOps Warriors: Detect, Respond, Neutralize

      Speaker: Rocky Rosas -   Senior Solutions Consultant - LogRhythm


      Topic: The days of layered, prevention-centric security strategies are behind us. Motivated and well-funded cyber criminals, organizations, and nation states have proven that traditional strategies are futile. Cyber threats are growing, are a daily challenge for our SecOps organizations, and require a new integrated approach to detection and response. Effective Threat Lifecycle Management (TLM) is the key to technology-enabling efficient workflow that optimally aligns SecOps efforts around key performance metrics. Learn how technologies such as Log Management, SIEM, User/Entity Behavioral Analytics, Endpoint and Network Forensics, and Security Automation and Orchestration can be incorporated to provide a single optimally efficient workflow to improve your ability to detect, respond, and neutralize threats.


      Bio:  Rocky Rosas is a Senior Solutions Consultant at LogRhythm, the Security Intelligence Company, and is based in Southern California. Mr. Rosas is a Stanford University graduate in Mathematical and Computational Sciences. He has 30+ years of large-scale enterprise and service provider information technology experience, with the last 11 years focused on data security. As a five year veteran of LogRhythm, Mr. Rosas has been engaged in the requirements analysis and design of a significant number of successful SIEM and Security Intelligence platform deployments.

      Presentation: Software Defined Visibility,  How Next Generation Packet Brokers Make This Possible


      Speaker: Marcus Salvemini


      Topic: When deploying security defenses, Packet Brokers can provide the most advanced engineering capabilities to manipulate the flows and packets before they are ingested by the Security tools,  and need to be included in the overall SDN design.

      Next Generation Packet Brokers have the ability to integrate with SDN controllers through the use of RESTFull API's.

      These Packet Brokers come with a robust Software interface that lends itself to the basic 4 constructs of SDN controlled infrastructures and therefore make it a simple bridge between the Controller and the underlying Packet Broker platforms, allowing the SDN controller to automate many actions taken at the Fabric layer of the Packet Broker, as well as providing manual interaction by the controller and the physical platform when needed.

      RSVP requested
      Members $25/ Non-Members $30


      Presentation: Detect, Prevent and Recover - Understanding Security in the Cloud Era


      Speaker: Paul Eiler - Barracuda Channel Manager for Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii
      Chad Haskell - Barracuda Systems Engineer - Data Protection, Western Region


      Topic: Detect, Prevent and Recover - Understanding Security in the Cloud Era

      As tech advances, new ways of working / playing online evolve, it opens up new opportunities to hackers. There is now more information in the public cloud than ever before. Most people don't realize that this information can be leveraged in surprising ways to form a target attack on individuals and organizations when least expected. Where users were once static, a firewall and malware filters may have been enough - guarding the perimeter. Today there is no perimeter. People move - so does the data. Wifi gives access everywhere and users mostly have no idea of the risks they are being exposed to when they connect to these ungoverned networks. Simply put, users spend much of their time the other side of your fire wall, and then unwittingly bring the threat back inside your network often avoiding detection.
      Threats are changing daily, new threat vectors are constantly being opened and created. Modern day security is about deploying/managing multiple layers of security solutions, but in today's cloud era how can you effectively detect the current threats they may reside in your environment? Do you have a plan to detect your current threats, including those residing in your organization already? Once those threats are detected, do you have a plan to prevent those threats and in the event of a breech recover quickly? Most importantly, does your current security solutions integrate into platform designed to deal with advanced persistent threats across multiple threat vectors?

      Bio:Paul Eiler - Barracuda Channel Manager for Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii

      Came to Barracuda Networks 3 years ago assuming the role of Channel Manager for Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii. My primary role is working with Barracuda's top partners in the Southwest region who focus on security solutions. I work with these partners to develop sales/technical training programs and go-to-market strategies. I currently hold many Barracuda Product Specialist certifications in multiple areas including Cloud Security, Network Security and Data Protection products and services.

      Chad Haskell - Barracuda Systems Engineer - Data Protection, Western Region


      Started with Yosemite Technologies in '05, which was later acquired by Barracuda in '08. I have held positions in Tech Support, OEM Training, Quality Assurance, Product Management, Partner Enablement and currently Systems Engineering. While I specialize in Data Protection products I also cover Email Security, Web Security, and CloudGen Firewalls. Over two years ago I started helping the cloud team and have participated at shows like AWS Re:invent, Microsoft Inspire. These experiences have helped me to see how various technology is used to solve to solve a great many different problems and better understand the history of threats and how the threat landscape is evolving today and the protection that is needed to ensure business continuity today how to position for the future.

      Speaker: Neil R. Wyler "Grifter", Threat Hunting and Incident Response Specialist, RSA


      Topic:Since its inception, the security industry has been inundated with trendy defense techniques, topics, terms, and products that once implemented will solve all of our security woes. For the last several years one of those terms, threat hunting, has become the darling of defenders and vendors worldwide. But just what is threat hunting? Is it effective? Where do you even begin? This session will answer these questions and more when we discuss real life, immediately applicable, threat hunting techniques and methodologies. We'll also discuss several examples of security failures and data exposure found during threat hunting engagements on the networks of Black Hat and the RSA Conference.

      Bio:Neil R. Wyler is currently a Threat Hunting and Incident Response Specialist with RSA. He has spent over 18 years as a security professional, focusing on vulnerability assessment, penetration testing, physical security, and incident response. He has been a staff member of the Black Hat Security Briefings for over 16 years and a member of the Senior Staff at DEF CON for 18 years. Neil has spoken at numerous security conferences worldwide, including Black Hat, DEF CON, and the RSA Conference.
