Hunting: Defense Against The Dark Arts - Jacqueline Stokes, Danny Akacki, and Stephen Hinck (BSides Augusta 2016) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Hunting: Defense Against The Dark Arts
Jacqueline Stokes, Danny Akacki, and Stephen Hinck

"We can all agree that threat (""Evil"") detection is an essential component of a functioning security monitoring program. Let's start thinking about how to take our tradecraft to the next level and hunt for insecure conditions (""Ways for Evil to do Evil things"") that might allow threat actors to succeed in their mission. This talk will run through some of the observations gathered during hunting expeditions inside the networks of multiple Fortune-ranked organizations and challenge you to expand your security operations beyond signature-based detection."

"Jacqueline Stokes (@find_evil) is an infosec enthusiast who picked up hacking as a preteen and cut her teeth over multiple years in Iraq. Her ongoing mission is to assess and advise clients on the most actionable and forward-thinking methods to improve detection, response, and containment of advanced threats. Jackie likes long walks on the beach, 90's nostalgia, and is the president and founding member of the Kevin Mandia Fan Club. Danny Akacki (@dakacki) was a Lead Analyst with GE Capitals' Applied Intelligence team prior to his employment with Mandiant. He is a pragmatic optimist and believes we are probably screwed, but hopes we aren't. Danny enjoys finding evil on the weekends. Stephen Hinck (@stephenhinck) is a Senior Security Analyst at Oracle, Inc. Stephen stumbled into the information security world years ago and has since only managed to dig his way deeper to the rabbit hole. With a background in security operations, incident response and threat hunting, Stephen's security operations experience is multi-faceted. Although he enjoys many things, he absolutely hates writing silly bios like this one."
