Tripwire to Host Webcast on Improving Security with Honeypots

Security leader to provide practical advice on effective use of decoy systems

 

PORTLAND, Ore. — September 23, 2014 Tripwire, Inc., a global provider of advanced threat,  security and compliance solutions, today announced a new webcast titled, “Hacking Back: Proactive Threat Intelligence with Honeypots for Active Defense,” to take place Thursday, September 25, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT.

As cybercriminals become more sophisticated and persistent in their attack strategies, static methods of threat intelligence are rapidly becoming obsolete. Dynamic threat intelligence can be obtained through the use of honeypots, ‘decoy’ systems designed to attract cyberattackers for the purpose of surveillance. Integrating critical information gleaned from honeypots with other threat intelligence and security automation tools makes it possible to understand attackers’ motives and objectives. This integration can be instrumental in the formulation of effective mitigation strategies for specific attack vectors. However, maintaining honeypots can be expensive and resource intensive.

Ioannis Koniaris, information security engineer and developer of HoneyDrive, and Ken Westin, security analyst at Tripwire, will provide an in-depth look at practical honeypot tools and techniques. The webcast will also cover how to use honeypot intelligence to improve security.

Webcast attendees will learn:

  • How to use honeypots as effective intelligence tools.
  • The differences between open-source honeypot tools.
  • How honeypot data can be used to make security analytics more effective.
