Incident Detection Summit 2009 Webcast

Ken Bradley and Richard Bejtlich will conduct a Webcast for SANS on Monday 2 Nov at 1 pm EST. Check out the sign-up page.
Every day, intruders find ways to compromise enterprise assets around the world. To counter these attackers, professional incident detectors apply a variety of host, network, and other mechanisms to identify intrusions and respond as quickly as efficiently as possible.

In this Webcast, Richard Bejtlich, Director of Incident Response for General Electric, and Ken Bradley, Information Security Incident Handler for the General Electric Computer Incident Response Team, will discuss professional incident detection. Richard will interview Ken to explore his thoughts on topics like the following:

  1. How does one become a professional incident detector?
  2. What are the differences between working as a consultant or as a member of a company CIRT?
  3. How have the incident detection and response processes changed over the last decade?
  4. What challenges make it difficult to identify intruders, and how can security staff overcome these obstacles?

Richard will lead this event and conduct it more like a podcast, so the audio will be the important part. This is a short-notice event, but it will be cool. Please join us. Thank you!
