October 2019 – Threat Intel 101

Because nobody actually teaches this stuff in school
The term Threat Intelligence covers a lot of ground, from a known-bad IP address shared on Twitter to the tactics of a state-sponsored hacking group described in a classified DoD report. If you have access to the latter and use that kind of knowledge on a regular basis this talk probably isn’t for you. But if you’re interested in how you can use knowledge of your potential adversaries for network defense, read on!

Join us October 10th as Andrew Beard covers the basics of evaluation and use of Threat Intel source. Whether you’re learning for application in a Security Operations Center (SOC) or just want to experiment on your home network, this talk will introduce you to the tools and techniques. This event is free and open to the public. Join us for a great presentation and meet other local InfoSec pros.
