Configure your assets, save your butt - Caspian Kilkelly (Circle City Con 2015 Videose 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Configure your assets, save your butt
Caspian Kilkelly

Circle City Con 2015

This talk will discuss the very dry subject of asset management and configuration standards as they apply to defensive information security. We will address the need for asset and configuration management, and critically compare the standards presented by NIST Microsoft, Apple, the NSA and other groups. Practical suggestions for both defensive asset configuration strategies, and loss prevention through software (and why it doesn't work very well) will be discussed, as well as the value of large, invasive asset tracking services. There will be little or no discussion of attribution, "cyber" or "cybering", and no spreadsheets will be harmed during this presentation.

Bio: Caspian Kilkelly (@randominterrupt) works for a large, busy Canadian University as a security specialist. He has 15 years of experience with layer 8 of the OSI model, as well as most of the others. Caspian has worked for or with all sorts of shady characters, startups, circuses, and large insurance and financial organizations. He has managed to turn most of it into interesting stories, but still can't figure out how to convince his user community not to open that damn zip file full of "smiley face icons".
