Presentation Title
What breaches teach, and education the hard way!

The speaker was drawn into the very middle of defending RSA Security against a serious military grade cyber attack in 2011. Yes, that one.

Through that experience and work with the intelligence and defense agencies of several countries, as well as his work with many large customers, the author gained unique insight into how these breaches unfold, how pervasive they are, and how we actually help our attackers.

This talk will focus on some of the things which we as an industry do to make it easier for the attacker, and some ideas on how we can better defend against these types of attacks.  In addition, this talk will touch on the methods used by the attackers, and shifts in mind sets which we all need to undertake if we are to defend ourselves against this type of determined attacker.
