Threat Detection and Incident Response Summit

Threat Detection and Incident Response Summit

May 22, 2024 – Register

In an era where “assume breach” is the status quo, organizations are working on the maturity of threat detection and incident response programs to mitigate the barrage of incoming malware and ransomware attacks.

This must-attend forum is designed to delve into big-picture strategies to reduce attack surfaces, improve patch management, conduct post-incident forensics, and tools and tricks needed in a modern organization.

Expect robust debate on the use of AI/LLMs in incident response tooling, the cost (and) curse of the “log-everything” movement, the value of threat intelligence, and the blending of sophisticated APTs with cybercrime activities.

Attendees can expect high-quality presentations and sessions on the following:

  • The extension of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) systems beyond traditional parameters, advancing into the network layers to provide more robust defense mechanisms.
  • Detailed examination of various threat hunting tools and frameworks, including a look at the latest technologies and methodologies being used in modern security programs.
  • The critical role of threat intelligence data and trends around monetization of feeds and government-controlled data release.
  • Best practices in logging and monitoring to spot malware infections and sharing of IOCs (indicators of compromise) artifacts to secure the ecosystem.

SecurityWeek’s Threat Detection and Incident Response (TDIR) Summit brings together security practitioners from around the world to share war stories on breaches and the murky world of high-end cyberattacks.

The Latest In Ransomware (and What to Do About It)

Emily Laufer
Director of Product Marketing, ThreatLabz

ThreatLabz tracks dozens of ransomware families as they monitor the 300B+ daily transactions across the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange. Lately, ThreatLabz has observed an explosion in new ransomware families (with some groups suspected to be running multiple ransomware ‘brands’), threat groups doubling down on data extortion, and lots of innovation in tactics and techniques. Join Emily Laufer from Zscaler as she walks through the latest ThreatLabz discoveries, and learn:

  • The latest ransomware innovations
  • Predictions for the next wave of ransomware trends
  • Guidance for maximizing your organization’s protections against evolving ransomware

SEARCH Party: Threat Hunting in the Clouds

Greg Foss
CrowdStrike, Security Leader

Delve into the world of cloud threat hunting at scale with lessons learned from the CrowdStrike OverWatch team. This session will focus on the experiences investigating and preventing intrusions into organizations of all sizes directly from the front lines. We will discuss practical lessons learned from our own threat hunting process, called SEARCH, and share insights into how organizations can implement practical threat hunting into their own cloud security operations. Through understanding and implementing truly proactive threat hunting, organizations can turn valuable insights into an effective security operations strategy that can be applied across the cloud and on-premise assets alike.

Deciphering the Unknown: Leveraging Knowns in Cyber Threat Detection

Tim Morris
Tanium, Chief Security Advisor

In the realm of cyber security, visibility is key to managing and defending against threats effectively. Without clear and accurate data, or "visibility", we cannot discern truth from fiction. Risk in cybersecurity is commonly assessed in two dimensions: likelihood and severity. Both factors are contingent upon having complete visibility what is being protected. By having absolute clarity and visibility, we can detect better and make more acceptable risk decisions. The concept of "knowing what you know" helps us better identify the unknowns. This clearer perspective aids in distinguishing extreme risks from low risks, while dealing with threats.

Contrary to the approach of aggregating attack surface data from multiple sources, which often results in unreliable and erroneous derivatives, this session places a strong emphasis on the critical aspect of threat detection. It underscores the need for high-quality intel that enhances visibility into potential threats. Relying on these derivatives not only amplifies the risk, but also compromises effective threat detection.

In this presentation, we'll discuss what measures can be implemented to achieve improved visibility, enhance threat detection, and secure the most critical infrastructures around the globe. We'll outline the true sources of reliable data that offer enhanced visibility and delve into the pertinent questions that will offer the best intel for making superior cyber security and risk decisions

Cyber Resilience: The New Strategy to Cope with Increased Threats

Torsten George
Absolute Software, Cybersecurity Evangelist

Many security practitioners understand that it’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ an organization will suffer a data breach. This means that instead of primarily focusing efforts on keeping threat actors out of the network, it’s equally important to develop a strategy to reduce the impact. In turn, many organizations have started adopting a new strategy to cope with today’s increased cyber threats, which is called ‘cyber resilience’.

Cybersecurity applies technology, processes, and measures that are designed to protect systems (e.g., servers, endpoints), networks, and data from cyberattacks. In contrast, cyber resilience focuses on detective and reactive controls in an organization’s IT environment to assess gaps and drive enhancements to the overall security posture. Most cyber resilience initiatives leverage or enhance a variety of cybersecurity measures. Both are most effective when applied in concert.

This session discusses the need for cyber resiliency and its benefits, as well as illustrates why it matters using the example of application resilience. It outlines how to establish cyber resilience across an organization’s device fleet to work as a preventive measure to counteract human error, malicious actions, and decayed, insecure software. Ultimately, the goal of cyber resilience is to aggressively protect the entire enterprise, covering all available cyber resources.

Attacker Mindset in the Cloud

Taylor Bianchi
Uptycs, Senior Offensive Security Researcher

Organizations can meet compliance/regulatory responsibilities in the cloud, but still be susceptible to a threat actor escalating privileges, exfiltrating data, targeting you for ransomware. Threat actors today have become cloud experts. Their TTPs are evolving quicker than most want to believe. Therefore it's time we start thinking like them and mimicking detection on their attack behavior.

In this keynote at SecurityWeek's 2021 Threat Intelligence Summit, John Lambert, GM of the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center, discusses how it’s more important than ever for defenders and organizations to come together and better share information that can help the entire ecosystem protect against emerging threats. Lambert shares specific examples of how community resources such as GitHub, MITRE’s ATT&CK Framework, Sigma rules, CodeQL queries and Jupyter notebooks have all been used in recent months to “open-source” security to better defend against sophisticated threats such as NOBELIUM and others.
