Deception Technologies as a Preventive Cyber Defense: A Practitioner's Viewpoint
Visibility is a big challenge for every security practitioner. The exponential increase in the volume of incidents, threat intelligence and advisories that a typical security team needs to sift through on a daily basis, as well as the sophistication and stealth employed by advanced attackers, make detecting an intrusion like finding a needle in a haystack. Traditional approaches are failing to effectively scale to address contemporary challenges. By bringing broad military deception strategies to cybersecurity, deception technology puts the narrative squarely back in the hands of the defender in the event of an intrusion.
This session addresses:
- Making incident response and remediation an active, near real-time process;
- Creating an early warning system that gives practitioners the chance to determine motives;
- Effectively incorporating deception tech into a security strategy.
