GuidePoint Senior Security Consultant Selected for Black Hat Europe Arsenal Presentation

Brian Beaudry will speak about OWASP ZSC

Brian Beaudry, senior security consultant, will represent GuidePoint Security at Black Hat Europe Nov. 1-4, as a featured Arsenal presenter.

Brian has been a part of the GuidePoint team for the past two years in the application security practice. He will deliver a special presentation on the OWASP ZSC tool created by Ali Razmjoo. The presentation will be from 10-11:50 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, at Arsenal Station 4 in the Business Hall at the Business Design Centre in London.

OWASP ZSC is an open-source tool written in the Python programming language. It allows users to generate customized shellcode as well as obfuscate scripts. The shellcode can then be used to develop proof-of-concept exploits to demonstrate the impact of discovered vulnerabilities. ZSC’s script obfuscation functionality allows it to take code the developer does not want to be easily viewed and obfuscates it to make the reverse engineer’s job more difficult.

OWASP ZSC uses new encoding techniques and methods many antivirus suites will not detect. OWASP ZSC encoders generate shellcode with random encodings, which allows it to generate thousands of new dynamic shellcodes within the same job in just a second. The software runs on Windows/Linux/OSX under Python.

Brian recently served as a Google Summer of Code mentor for OWASP, providing subject matter expertise to the ZSC project on Windows-based shellcode. He was also involved in presenting the tool at Defcon 2016 Demo Labs.

During Black Hat’s interactive Arsenal, presenters like Brian share the latest in open-source tool and product development, including demonstrations and thought-provoking conversations. Each tool submitted to the Arsenal undergoes a review by the Black Hat Europe review board to find the best and most innovative tools under development in the security space.

“We are so excited that Brian has this chance to share his knowledge and enthusiasm about OWASP in a global market,” said Bryan Orme, principal of information assurance, at GuidePoint Security. “It’s a unique opportunity for talented GuidePoint professionals like Brian to connect with others from around the world to brainstorm and network about cutting-edge technologies, solutions, and tools that continue to advance the ever-evolving information security industry. We are all proud of Brian, and can’t wait to see his presentation.”

By participating in Black Hat Europe 2016 trainings and briefing sessions, attendees get hands-on learning opportunities with some of the world’s leading information security researchers and developers, while exploring industry trends in a vendor-neutral environment.

From Cyber Analysts to Cyber Hunters: GuidePoint Security Expert to Speak at Anomali Detect

Are you ready to go from your regular job as a cyber analyst to a full-fledged cyber hunter? Join GuidePoint Security at Anomali Detect Sept. 11-13, 2016, at the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center, for a special presentation, “Cyber Hunters: Operationalizing Threat Intelligence for Cyber Analysts.”

GuidePoint Security is a Gold sponsor for the conference, and Matt Keller, our vice president of federal services, will lead a session about how analysts in Security Operation Centers (SOC) can evolve from a detection and response team to proactive cyber hunters who seek out threats before damage occurs.

Matt’s presentation will be from 3:10-4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, in room National C. He will talk about how to utilize threat feeds to reduce the amount of time it takes to identify incidents and help you plan for responses within the “Cyber Golden Hour.” He will share insight on how your security team can identify threats in real time, moving from cyber analysts to full-fledged cyber hunters.

We’ll also have a table top display set up during Anomali Detect, so be sure to stop by and view a demonstration on our Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC). By using the cloud to provide dynamic scalability and cost savings, our vSOC analysts can provide validated security incidents so your team can focus on remediation.

GuidePoint Security Takes On SecureWorld Boston

SecureWorld Logo-Icon 2015GuidePoint Security is looking forward to attending the SecureWorld Expo in Boston and hosting a Technology Showcase this year with our partners, Cisco, Skybox, RSA, ForeScout, and Cybereason.

When: March 4 & 5, 2015
Where: SecureWorld Boston at Hynes Convention Center, Exhibit Hall B, Booth #104, Boston, MA

The software and services offered by our partners allow GuidePoint to create comprehensive security solutions for virtually any client’s networks, large or small. Below you’ll discover a few reasons why we will be showcasing their technologies at SecureWorld:

As a result of their acquisition of Sourcefire, Cisco Systems is now able to offer a new line of products that aid in building threat-centric security models. The benefits of such security models include advanced notice of threats, real-time network monitoring, and attack remediation.

Skybox Security provides cutting-edge solutions that protect the security of our customers’ networks and businesses. With Skybox products and services, our customers gain complete network visibility and consolidated vulnerability, firewall, and threat management tools, allowing them to more rapidly prioritize and remediate risks.

RSA’s intelligence-driven security solutions help our customers identify, assess and respond to advanced threats. With RSA’s solutions, our customers can also confirm and manage identities, and ultimately prevent IP theft, fraud and cybercrime.

For ForeScout, pervasive network security is the name of the game. Their technologies, such as CounterACT, make it possible for our clients to continuously monitor and prevent security exposures and cyber attacks, even on BYOD devices.

Cybereason’s Endpoint Detection and Response platform eliminates isolated security alerts, instead showing a complete attack story. It also automates the validation of alerts so that our clients can spend less time being distracted by false positives and more time finding and stopping legitimate security threats.

At the 2015 SecureWorld Expo in Boston, you’ll have the opportunity to attend the following GuidePoint speaking sessions:

Security Management Across Party Lines
Speaker: Tony Turner, Managing Security Consultant, GuidePoint Security
March 4, 11:15am – 12:00pm

Session description: Developing and running a security management program requires far more than being a strong technologist, tracking the latest threats and following the right people on Twitter. This talk will discuss core strategies that you can bring home to your own organizations to engage management support, help bring the right people to the table and open meaningful dialogue to achieve maximum buy-in for your team’s security objectives.

Industry Expert Panel: Incident Response
Speakers include: Bryan Orme, Principal, GuidePoint Security
March 5, 1:15pm – 2:15pm

Session description: Inevitably it happens – someone lost their tablet or their smartphone was stolen at the local coffee shop, or a network was compromised. Organizations must move from the mindset of hoping the incident doesn’t happen to them to a mindset of What will our plan of action be when it does happen?  The goal of an Incident Response program is to handle the issue in a way that limits the damage, reduces the recovery time and costs, and helps to mitigate risks to their clients.

Join our experts as they look at the challenges security teams are facing, tools and initiatives that are working for them, and guidance in creating a solution that will work for your organization.

GuidePoint will also be hosting a networking event in Boston with our technology partners. Register here to network with your peers and industry professionals.
Security Social Hour at Kings Bowling Alley
