Technology Trend Keynote - Security
Intelligent Cybersecurity to Outwit the Attackers
Wednesday, January 28 11:30 - 12:30
Presenter: David Goeckeler, Senior Vice President, Security Business Group
Not only have the motives and persistence of attackers increased, but also has their understanding of classic security technologies, applications, and how to exploit the gaps between them. Attackers are indiscriminate as they relentlessly drive their attacks home, frequently using tools that have been developed specifically to circumvent the target’s security infrastructure. They employ a methodical approach to an attack that can be demonstrated as an “attack chain” – the chain of events that leads up to and through the phases of an attack. To truly protect across all attack vectors, we have to accept the nature of modern networked environments and start defending them by understanding how attackers think and what is required to secure our infrastructure. In this session, David Goeckeler will discuss how defenders can think like an attacker to truly employ a threat-centric model of security that is advanced beyond the abilities of the attackers.
Please see David Goeckeler’s bio here.
Experienced Cisco security thought-leaders, engineers, and partners are presenting more than 65 technical breakout sessions, seminars, product solutions overviews, customer case studies, and instructor-led labs.

OpenSOC: An Open Source Framework for Security Monitoring
Thursday, January 29, 14:00
Speaker: Tom Piscitell, Information Security Investigator
Unified security monitoring has traditionally been a difficult task. Customers need to aggregate telemetry and events that exist in myriad formats and apply the necessary analytics to make the information applicable. Few tools exist other than Security Incident Event Managers and they have their limitations. As we move into a big data world, Cisco saw the need for a more flexible tool. Accordingly, we have created OpenSOC, a Hadoop-based framework for security analytics, and released it to the public under the Apache license.
