Leveraging Cloud Technology to Reduce Cost and Risk in an Investigation

The continued growth of data volumes, increased adoption of cloud platforms and use of mobile devices for conducting day to day business is further complicating how corporations manage digital investigations. The collection and preservation of data, including from apps such as O365, Box and Gmail, can be cumbersome and time-consuming while risking your data integrity.

During this session, we’ll share strategies to help  IT and the teams they work with save precious time and costs when handling digital investigations. You will learn how to leverage data protection initiatives to help streamline the process and cut time and costs by 50%, while still maintaining visibility of data and reducing risk.

Help, I am being held ransom and I can’t get my backup…

Ransomware…it seems to be an everyday event. Can you recover from backup?  Can ransomware be stopped or neutralized?  ?  What about other malware attacks?  Is there a better mousetrap?

From past failures, it is evident that deploying multiple best of breed point security solutions has not been effective in providing organizations the security they expected or paid for.

Deploying unified security architecture has proven to simplify the management, control, and enforcement of corporate security policy across network, endpoint, mobile, and cloud vectors. An added benefit is that TCO is reduced with fewer products to own and manage.


Come and learn about a multi-layered security architecture that will prevent zero day attacks…including Ransomware.

Keeping the Enterprise Always On with IT Resilience

Your organization is always running and can’t afford downtime during a disaster or the traditional time it takes to recover from one.  Backup solutions don’t solve these problems as they are not true disaster recovery for the business.  What types of disasters will impact the business?  Learn about disaster recovery scenarios, and also the questions to ask and answer when planning your disaster recovery solution to drive true IT resilience.  Learn about which decisions impact the business in which ways, and how to avoid making sacrifices for your always-on organization.

The MacGyver Guide to Threat Hunting: A Simple Approach to Advanced Techniques

Threat Hunting has become a buzzword in the security industry that is often misunderstood and/or misrepresented.  Often, organizations focus the newest things in information security to protect, defend, and respond against today’s advanced threats.  However, given that much of the base infrastructure of how networks and systems work have not changed dramatically, utilizing system and network basics in creative ways have proven effective in both combatting advanced threats and reducing the skills gap of analysts at all levels.  This talk will discuss a proven, practical, effective, and scalable methodology to detect, scope, triage, and respond to advanced threats in today’s landscape.  This methodology uses techniques based on various concepts that are known by most IT personnel and have been proven effective in the field.  This talk will show Threat Hunting for what it is: Investigation without cause to identify threats and adversaries other detections miss.
