TRIPWIRE RSA CONFERENCE 2017 SESSIONS

 

SECURITY BULLETINS ON TRIAL: ARE VENDORS GUILTY OF INFORMATION OBSCURITY?

Speakers: Tyler Reguly, Manager, Security & Development @ Tripwire; Lane Thames, Software Engineer and Security Researcher @ Tripwire

When: February 14, 2017, 1:15 PM – 2:00 PM

Where: Moscone North / 131

The presenters will apply decades of experience in vulnerability management, thousands of conversations with customers and hundreds of hours of research into vendor patch programs to determine if security bulletins are failing the security community. Join this session as they put security bulletins on trial and sentence vendors to a new Common Security Bulletin Format (CSBF).

 

SIZZLE OR FIZZLE: IS THREAT INTELLIGENCE REALLY WORTH MY TIME?

Participants: Moderator: Anton Chuvakin, Research Vice President @ Gartner; Panelists: Brian Engle, Executive Director @ R-CISC; David Meltzer, VP of Corporate Development @Tripwire; Sean McBride, Attack Synthesis Lead @ FireEye

When: February 14, 2017, 1:15 PM – 2:00 PM

Where: Marriott Marquis / Room: Yerba Buena 8

This lively panel pits the promises of security providers against the needs of enterprise defenders. Panelists share the threat intelligence traps organizations should avoid, and how to operationalize this data for faster, more effective incident response. Attendees will leave knowing whether they’re ready to take on threat intelligence and, if so, how to get the most out of their investment.

 

LEARNING LAB: INTEGRATING IT & OT: DESIGN CHALLENGES IN CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY

Facilitator: Lane Thames, Software Engineer and Security Researcher @ Tripwire

When: February 15, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Where: Moscone West / 2011

Using a simulated Industrial Internet of Things environment, this Learning Lab will demonstrate the scenario of converging IT and OT critical infrastructure systems, and will integrate a simulated OT environment into a simulated IT environment. Through this hands-on approach, the audience will gain an understanding of design challenges faced during IT/OT integration and their implications.

 

METRICS FOR MANAGING AND UNDERSTANDING PATCH FATIGUE

Facilitator: Tyler Reguly, Manager, Security Research and Development @ Tripwire

When: February 15, 2017, 4:00 PM – 4:45 PM

Where: Marriott Marquis / Room: Nob Hill B

FEBRUARY 15, 2017, 4:00 PM – 4:45 PM

Metrics are designed to help benchmark our organizations, rank our work and prioritize our tasks. However, vulnerability and patch management make information overload a real thing. With thousands of patches issued annually, are metrics even helping? How can we secure our systems when we must juggle an ever-growing workload? This P2P session will deliberate ways to overcome patch fatigue.
