Left of Boom - Ted Corbeill SecureWV/Hack3rcon 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Left of Boom
Ted Corbeill
SecureWV/Hack3rcon 2018

The term “Left of Boom” was made popular in 2007 in reference to the U.S. military combating improvised explosive devices (IEDs) used by insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq. The U.S. military spent billions of dollars developing technology and tactics to prevent and detect IEDs before detonation, with a goal of disrupting the bomb chain. This is an analog to cybersecurity as we strive to increase the incident prevention capabilities of our security tools and where we can’t prevent attacks, augment prevention with incident detection and response tools. If you feel that you don’t have the cybersecurity evidence to know, empirically, what’s working, what’s not, how to fix it, how to verify the fix worked, and how to make sure it stays working across your security tools, your people, and the processes they follow, this presentation is for you. This presentation will demonstrate automated methods to mitigate these problems. It will identify approaches that you can apply to improve the effectiveness of your security tools, security teams, and processes. Following this presentation, you’ll be able to develop your own strategy to get “left of boom.”
