What is Robotic Decision Automation and Why Should I care?
Writing SIEM Rules and monitoring detection consoles is out. Not only do we not like it, it hasn’t proved to be particularly effective. The Respond Analyst is a new kind of analyst that increases capacity and improves the capability of any security team, regardless of size – without adding to the burden of an already overworked team. Powered by Robotic Decision Automation (RDA), the Respond Analyst is ideal for organizations that are collecting meaningful security data, but struggle with having the manpower and resources to properly analyze and triage security incidents.
Join us during this presentation to learn:
Why traditional human-centric monitoring based on rules and queries has failed and leads to analyst fatigue.
How the Respond Analyst uses RDA to eliminate concerns of ‘unattended alerts’ and missed clues by analyzing more security data – without filters or tuning.
How the Respond Analyst integrates with your existing technologies and workflows to speed response, modernize, and automate security operations.

About Tempered Networks
Our Proven Solution is Unlike Any Other
Originally developed for a global Fortune 50 manufacturer, our technology enabled the company to increase its competitive edge by modernizing their production network and increasing production output, while safeguarding them against cyber breaches. Today, IDN is available to the broader market and we’re uniquely positioned to help you overcome your thorniest networking challenges. We understand the significant burden created by complex, time-consuming, and costly work-arounds – not to mention the distressing security trade-offs.
Our identity-based solution leverages the IETF-ratified Host Identity Protocol (HIP), an industry breakthrough for secure communications. With HIP, your devices can be identified using strong cryptographic identities, rather than an IPv4 or IPv6 address. This means your networked devices can change location yet retain their strong ‘verifiable’ cryptographic identity.
Our simple to use policy-based orchestration means anyone can manage IDN overlays. Our point-and-click orchestration tool sets and distributes network policies, making manual and tedious IP address management a thing of the past. It’s time to say good-bye to antiquated addressed-defined networking and welcome identity defined networking.

Deception Technology, Luxury Item or Lifeline?
A common deception technology misconception is that it is a luxury item meant only for companies with mature security operations or large budgets. This session will provide insight into how deception has evolved, its fit within the security stack, and why organizations both large and small are turning to deception for accurate detection, building predictive defenses, and accelerated incident response. Join in to hear about real-world deployments and top use cases. Attendees will leave with insight into the value and benefits that defenders have realized from adding deception into their security operations programs and why it is often a lifeline for defense against today’s advanced attackers.

Email Security for Microsoft Office 365
Harvesting Office Microsoft 365 credentials is now the most profitable activity for cybercriminals. That’s why, in Q4, Microsoft was the most impersonated brand, with 2.3x more attacks than #2 Netflix. While credential phishing is a serious enough threat, it’s just the beginning. Hackers are increasingly using compromised legitimate Office 365 accounts to launch even more damaging spear phishing attacks.
