Cyber Security in a World with Professional Attackers
Oct 11, 2012
I'll be giving a talk at the Sacramento chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) meeting Friday, October 19, link. Here is the abstract:
The cyber security market is a $70 billion market that is expected to grow to $120 billion in the next five years. Yet despite the size and maturity of this industry the cyber security market is in chaos today with attackers seemingly penetrating any organization they set their sites on. The reason for this chaos is the rise of professional attackers over the last several years. Simply put, they know how to bypass the most common security mechanisms and then operate in the shadows of an organization, sometimes for years. This talk will look at how easy it is for an attacker to penetrate an organization, operate undetected, and even cross your air gap to reach your most sensitive systems and data.
