INTEGRATED AUTOMATED CYBER DEFENSES
August 19, 2019 | 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM ET
Speaker: Craig T. Harber, Formerly NSA/USCYBERCOM Technical Director
Location: Room 24
Session Description: One the most significant challenges facing cyber security professionals today is the need to simplify and streamline their existing cyber security infrastructure while gaining efficacy and reducing cyber dwell time. Security Operation Centers (SOC) are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of alerts lacking context and the number of investigations demanding their attention while the supporting security infrastructure is geared more towards being reactive than proactive. Security analysts are often presented with more alerts than are humanly possible to triage and investigate, granting adversaries more time to evade detection because of the time required by SOCs to detect and respond. These problems are further exacerbated by a rising skills gap as organizations struggle to build an adequate bench of expertise. More data is not necessarily a good thing and the focus should be on zeroing in on the right data and making it actionable. This session will discuss approaches to streamlining cyber security stacks, and why integration and automation are critical elements of a strategy to improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of defensive cyber operations.
Craig Harber is Fidelis’ Chief Technology Officer directing product strategy, joining Fidelis after a distinguished career at the National Security Agency (NSA), and most recently USCYBERCOM, where he held senior technical roles driving major initiatives in cybersecurity and information assurance, having far reaching strategic impact across the Department of Defense (DOD) and Intelligence Community (IC). Some of his major accomplishments include inventing the threat-based cybersecurity strategy NIPRNet SIPRNet Cyber Security Architecture Review (NSCSAR); transforming Active Cyber Defense concepts into capability pilots, commercial product improvements, industry standards, and operational solutions; and directing the Integrated Global Information Grid (GIG) IA Architecture.
