Tarnished Silver Bullets - Wolfgang Goerlich Converge 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Tarnished Silver Bullets
Wolfgang Goerlich

They make it sound easy. Identify data assets. Assess threats. Protect it. Encrypt it. In theory, sure. In practice, not so much. Besides, what does a real attack look like? Encryption, as with any security tactic, quickly becomes complex and diffuse without a unifying strategy. The question of how it protects the organization’s mission must be answered. And what about threats and criminal activities? This session details how to identify and document the business processes, convert threat intelligence into actionable threat models, and strategically deploy encryption.

J Wolfgang Goerlich supports information security initiatives for clients in the healthcare, education, financial services, and energy verticals. In his current role with CBI, a cyber security consultancy, Wolfgang is the vice president for security programs. Wolfgang also leads the Academy teams, providing mentoring and guidance to the junior-level talent. He is an active part of the security community. Wolfgang regularly advises on and presents on the topics of risk management, incident response, business continuity, secure development life cycles, and more.
