No Nonsense Security: Removing FUD and Focusing on Foundations

Neil "Grifter" Wyler  (Global Lead of Active Threat Assets, IBM X-Force)

Bart Stump  (Senior Systems Engineer, NetWitness)

Track: Cybersecurity

Format: Panel Session

Vault Recording: TBD

Cybersecurity researchers often like to paint what they do as witchcraft. A dark art full of complicated spells and scary stories where only they know what’s truly going on, and of course, only they can save you. But that’s not reality, that’s self-aggrandizing nonsense. Come join the leaders of the Black Hat NOC, often billed as one of the most hostile networks in the world (See…spooky.), where we’ll talk about how to make sense of the often overwhelming cybersecurity landscape. Come discover how we’ve learned where to focus your security effort, and budget, so that you can decrease your attack surface, and actually reduce risk to your organization, keeping those scary stories just that, stories, and not your reality.
