SANS Incident Detection Summit Wrapup

This past week I was able to attend cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SANS Incident Detection Summit in Washington DC. [In full disclosure, I should point out that I was on two of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 panels so I did not have to pay admission to attend.] I'll fully admit that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 summit blew away all expectations I had of it!

The SANS 'What Works' Summits are not like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir typical SANS conferences. The summits, or at least this one, are a single track where each session will eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r have a briefing (a presentation by someone) or a panel of experts discussing a specific topic. The audience gets to participate by asking questions via yellow note cards that are given to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moderator. The moderator cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n chooses which questions to ask.

Many of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 briefings and panels were amazing and gave great insights into different techniques to detect bad guys. if I had to choose my favorites cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y probably were Seth Hall discussing Bro, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Honeynet Project briefing and AAron Walters and Brendan Dolan-Gavitt's talk on memory analysis. Matt Richard's after-hours talk on analyzing PDF and office malware was amazing as well.

As great as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 panels and briefings were, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best part was being able to talk to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 people afterwards. The whole summit had less than 100 people (I'm guessing here) and everyone was willing and happy to talk. Where else do you get a chance to sit down and talk with people such as AAron Walters, Matt Jonkman, Andre Ludwig, Bamm Visscher, David Bianco, Ken Bradley, Matt Olney and Ken Dunham in one place?

I will definitely be coming back next year if I can.
