SexyDefense – The Red Team tore you a new one. NOW WHAT? Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

SexyDefense – The Red Team tore you a new one. NOW WHAT?
Derbycon 2012

Offensive talks are easy, I know. But the goal of offensive security at the end of the day is to make us better defenders. And that’s hard. Usually after the pentesters (or worst – red team) leaves, there’s a whole lot of mess of vulnerabilities, exposures, threats, risks and wounded egos. Now comes the money time – can you fix this so your security posture will actually be better the next time these guys come around?
This talk focuses mainly on what should be done (note – no what should be BOUGHT – you probably have most of what you need already in place and you just don’t know it yet).

The talk will show how to expand the spectrum of defenders from a reactive one to a proactive one, will discuss ways of performing intelligence gathering on your opponents, and modeling that would assist in focusing on an effective defense rather than a “best practice” one. Methodically, defensively, decisively. Just like the red-team can play ball cross-court, so should you!
