ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Indicators of Behavior: The New Way to Detect Advanced Attacks
For many cybercrime investigators, it’s all about indicators of compromise – hashes, URLs and other crime scene artifacts that can be gathered and compared to evidence from other crime scenes to determine what has occurred.
But what if you were to shift away from gathering evidence and toward cataloging behaviors – indicators of behavior – what people, applications and systems are doing that could indicate an attack is ongoing or imminent?
How does one make a strategic shift from IoC to IoB? What tools and skills are needed? What new standards and language must be developed?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on their strategies to detect advanced cyber-attacks.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are Indicators of Behavior, and how must one gather and analyze them in proper context?
- How does your organization currently separate signal from noise when it comes to detection?
- What are your barriers – technical and non-technical – to making this shift from evidence gathering to behavior monitoring?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Sam Curry, CSO at Cybereason.
