Presentation: Trends Seen In The SOC and Honeypots!

Cyber Security trends across the landscape are impacting all business verticals and threat intelligence processes, both traditional and proactive. We will share cyber security trends and “what we are seeing” from our SOC, monitoring/investigating/validating and alerting 24/7 in real-time to our clients both locally as well as globally. Then we will explore some of the standard methods of big data collection and more traditional threat intelligence processes and how it differs from the proactive approach we feel is the newest way of gathering threat intelligence in turn allowing for better Information Security posture for our clients. For example, we will explore the value and use of honeypots, how they are set up and how they are utilized for intelligence. Some of the traditional methods, although useful, tend to lack context and be reactive. Finally, we will explore how we are being proactively intelligent and utilizing some new quality methods and processes. In particular, we have a patent pending process called the APT Deflector that is a part of our overall BlueDot threat intelligence and Sagan Solution. “If ‘big data’ is the ‘next oil’, then the money will be in the refineries.” We are building the refineries.
