Reminder Subject: TALK: Richard Bejtlich, MANDIANT

ABSTRACT: Right now, Intruders are infiltrating government and private sector computer networks. Defenders, policy makers, business managers, and scholars continue to debate countermeasures. In this talk, Mandiant CSO Richard Bejtlich will share his perspectives and recommendations. In 1997 Richard transitioned from the policy and military intelligence worlds into hands-on technical work defending military, government, academic, and business networks. As he moves back to the policy and intelligence communities, Richard is developing ways to link policy, strategy, campaigns, tactics, and technology to defend digital resources. Richard will discuss he threats facing network owners, the tools used by threat actors, how defenders counter those actors and tools, and his own Network Security Monitoring strategy, recently expanded upon in his fourth book, The Practice of Network Security Monitoring.
