Chris Gerritz to Speak at BSides Las Vegas on Powershell Threat Hunting and Join CyberTexas Panel
August is set to be a busy month for Infocyte CEO Chris Gerritz as he travels around the US to speak at some noteworthy tech conferences to share how using threat hunting to find adversaries already on your network can be your best defense as hackers continue to penetrate our defenses. If you’re at one of these conferences be sure to sit in on Chris’ session to see how the latest techniques in threat hunting can benefit your security posture.
BSides Las Vegas 2016
Session: Powershell-Fu – Hunting on the Endpoint
Wednesday, August 3, 2016, from 10:45 am – 11:30 am
Type: Breaking Ground
Room: Florentine A
Presenter: Chris Gerritz, CEO, Infocyte
Hunting is the art of searching for badness and unauthorized activity on our own systems or network. By knowing what is normal in our networks and what is possible of adversaries, the hunter can identify malware, signs of unauthorized activity, and indicators of compromise lurking within. In this session, we will explore how to hunt for malware and compromises on Windows endpoints using built-in Powershell commands and scripts. We will explore how to validate what’s running on our systems and identify some of the tell-tale signs that you’ve been pwned. The failure of automated prevention and detection coupled with a disappearing perimeter means hunting will become an increasingly important skill among defenders. The skills demonstrated will be useful on your own local system or remotely against hundreds or even thousands of systems.

Despite the rich data provided by SIEMs, organizations find themselves drowning in false positives, making it difficult to focus on high-priority events. This problem of alert fatigue prevents cyber security teams from identifying and addressing real threats – impacting small teams with no SOC, large enterprise teams with a SOC, and MSSPs overseeing the security for many SOCs/customers.Read More »
