How to Budget for IDS - Brian Heitzman (Circle City Con 2015 Videose 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

How to Budget for IDS
Brian Heitzman

Circle City Con 2015

IDS Systems are the bane of all IT budgets. They spit enough information out that our bosses and industry ?experts? say we have to have them. Yet we find ourselves under mountains of alerts and logs that can get to petabyte levels. As salesmen and bosses tell us to turn on all the switches. So, how do we decide what switches to turn on and how do we preserve our budgets / lives in the process? In my presentation I will walk through some of the flaw with IDS?s, how you can work through them, what resources are available, how we can use these tools to inform our co-workers and most of all how you can budget the running of an IDS.

Bio: I am an IT security professional that enjoys handling the hard issue largely ignored by most. Over the last 5 years I have been handling sensitive security issues for a wide range of companies. Through private consulting, I have handled everything from threat analysis to incident response and am looking forward to doing far more.
