Cyber Exposure – The Next Frontier
The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join our session to learn how CISOs can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.
Liz Leon has been with Tenable for the four years, most recently serving as a solution engineer. Liz specializes in security implementations and solutions planning. Throughout her time in engineering, she has helped countless companies gain visibility over their cyber exposure using Tenable’s solutions.

Another Cloud Discussion!?!?! – Security in Cloud Environments Exposed
This presentation is based on a whitepaper, The Importance of modern IT-Security in private and public Cloud Environments by Nils Schäfer, a Security Engineer at Check Point Software Technologies. The author uses honeypot deployment in a cloud environment with basic cloud security controls enabled. The data generated by the honeypot shows how vulnerable cloud environments can be. We also discuss how the cyber kill chain applies to cloud environments.

Using Artificial Intelligence to detect threats without Decryption
Networks are becoming more and more opaque as network based encryption is on the rise protecting our traffic as it travels over trusted and untrusted networks. We are not the only ones making use of this as adversaries are hiding their communication in the same encrypted channels. In 2016, Cisco researchers published a paper and an open-source implantation debuting Encrypted Traffic Analytics that is an application of Machine Learning to detect malicious activity without the need for decryption. In this session we will discuss Encrypted Traffic Analytics’ origin, the Machine Learning techniques, and the results we have experienced as it has been implemented in solutions across public and private sectors.
Brian Butler is a Consulting Systems Engineer in the Global Service Provider group where he consults with large Internet Service Provider Organizations to help them identify security products that will protect their network, data and users. In this role, Brian has become a valuable asset to his customers, identifying malicious activity on the network through the use of NetFlow visibly. He is also responsible for deploying and testing security products within customers’ production environments and utilizing CISCO solutions to remedy their security issues.
Brian is a member of the GSP Data Analytic Tiger Team at Cisco, providing recommendations to large ISP companies when dealing with their Big Data analytics. He is also a member of the Flow Masters group within Cisco, that is tasked with expanding the knowledge of how Behavior Analysis utilizing NetFlow can further benefit customers within the Cisco Global Security Sales Organization.

Session Ten4:00 pm - 4:30 pmDon Byrne
How They Bypass Office 365 Security
The move to SaaS has changed the phishing landscape: your Office 365 inbox is the #1 threat vector and your Office 365 credentials are their #1 target. In this talk, we will demonstrate the techniques attackers use to bypass Microsoft’s defenses. Learn how they use Microsoft’s own services to fool filters and utilize built-in tools to launch them internally–bypassing your email security gateway.
During this session, we’ll demonstrate how to protect Office 365 from:
- Email-based phishing, spoofing, and malware
- Account takeover, insider threats, compromised Microsoft credentials
- Loss of sensitive data from OneDrive, SharePoint and Office 365
