Cyber Threat Landscape: Responding to Ransomware

The Cyber threat landscape is evolving at an alarming pace. Ransomware & DDOS attacks are increasing in frequency, and are becoming highly profitable for the attackers behind them. These attackers are smart, well resourced, and motivated to steal money or information. Ransomware attacks are up 6,000% and driving the creation of a $440 billion-dollar industry.

Kevin Kelly comes to us with many years of cyber-security experience. He has worked in Banking Core Technology and security, with Polaris Financial Technology. With Identity and Access Management with IdenTrust and with EndPoint security with the global company, Kaspersky Lab. Kevin now works with enSilo, a security start-up, dealing with Post Infection Protection.

Perry Carpenter currently serves as Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer for KnowBe4, the world's most popular security awareness and simulated phishing platform.

Previously, Perry led security awareness, security culture management, and anti-phishing behavior management research at Gartner Research, in addition to covering areas of IAM strategy, CISO Program Management mentoring, and Technology Service Provider success strategies.

Perry holds a Master of Science in Information Assurance (MSIA) from Norwich University in Vermont, is a Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO, and a board member for Arkansas InfraGard.


Physical Security Convergence: Attacking Physical Access Control Systems from the Corporate Network

Historically physical security and cybersecurity have been distant cousins. Increasingly, however, physical security systems such as physical access control systems (PACS) and video surveillance systems are taking advantage of networking and wireless technologies that are well known to the hacker community. This presentation examines the implementation topology of the typical PACS system and how the different components of the system can be compromised. Often this can even be accomplished from the corporate/enterprise network.

Harry Regan manages the Securicon commercial security consulting team and is responsible for overseeing the execution of commercial engagements and coordinating with sales activities. He also serves as a senior technical resource in the assessment and compliance consulting teams. He has been fundamental to the expansion of Securicon's services into the Critical Infrastructure services arena, specializing on cybersecurtiy, operational and regulatory issues. Mr. Regan maintains an active presence in the Security community and has been a featured presenter at the RSA Security Conference, DEFCON, DerbyCon, Secure360, and a number of BSides around the country.
