Central Iowa Section Meeting - Digital Hapkido: Redirecting the Attacker’s Energy

Share

Please plan to join us for the first Central Iowa Section meeting of 2020!

We will be meeting with the Engineers Club of Des Moines.  An optional meal will be available for purchase before the presentation.

This will be a joint meeting with the local chapter of the IEEE Computer Society.


Digital Hapkido: Redirecting the Attacker’s Energy

Attendees will see a proven defense-in-depth control structure that deals well with complex adversaries and ransomware/malware.  The talk will be structured in a plug-and-play way so that the attendee can take different aspects of the security controls back to protect their organizations. During the presentation I will also talk through some alternative options to some of the covered controls to help increase the success of the attendee raising their security posture in their own environment. Attendees will see practical adversary obstruction and how to leverage the home-field advantage to flip the script on hackers giving their organization the upper hand.
