What a way to start a year: 5 talks in a week
Next week will be a busy talking week for me.
I will start the week by joining HP annual security festival, HP Protect in Nashville, Tennessee on Sep 9th-11th. While the session list does not mention speakers, I am actually giving 4 talks. I wander if this is a record just for this year or since Protect inception back in the ArcSight days.
While one of them, “Innovating correlations to guard against the web threats that really matter”, I already presented earlier this summer at OWASP AppSec Research in Athens all others are new:
- “Black cat or white cat: how to fight advanced hacking” – in this entertaining talk, I elaborate on my popular “black cat, white cat” post which uses Deng Xiaoping quote that it does not matter if a mouse is black or white as long as it catches mice. In the talk I analyze high profile hacks, and what cats were missing in order to prevent them.
- “Using HP ArcSight Compliance Insight Packages for continuous compliance” – in this highly technical talk I demonstrate how to modify HP ArcSight ESM compliance packs to interface with HP EnterpriseView GRC solution and provide continuous security compliance monitoring.
- “HP RepSM: combatting persistent adversaries with threat intelligence” – must be kept a secret till the presentation!
Later that week I will revisit “testing of RESTful web services” at Source Seattle on September 13th. I last presented the subject at Source Barcelona last year and this year I could more feely talk about some of the techniques I only hinted at as the technology was already officially released as part of HP WebInspect.
