Ask the Insider Threat Experts at the 2015 DoDIIS Worldwide Conference

GuidePoint Security will be showcasing Insider Threat Solutions at DoDIIS Worldwide Conference on August 23rd thru Aug 26th, 2015.

GuidePoint has been working closely with the federal government over the past three years to develop PKI integrations for mission critical and business applications through F5 Networks, and integrating the resulting audit data into a Splunk application to assist in monitoring PKI access and authorization. This new capability assists in identifying users that mean harm to government networks.

In addition, GuidePoint has partnered with multiple industry- leading vendors including Digital Guardian, Exabeam, Apcon, and Pernix Data on enhancing network and system data for identifying suspicious activity across the enterprise, ultimately supporting the identification of anomalous activity. With these capabilities, GuidePoint enables a holistic approach to insider threat and anomaly detection for government networks.

GuidePoint Security is extremely excited for the opportunity to demonstrate newly developed solutions and capabilities at DODIIS Worldwide to help our customers and partners better understand the options available when working with GuidePoint.

GuidePoint Security Presents on Offensive Mobile Forensics and Bitcoin Transactions at BSides Boston 2014

Conference attendees will get a new experience this year at the annual Security BSides Boston 2014 Conference.  GuidePoint Security speakers will cover two new topics at BSides:  Offensive Mobile Forensics and Bitcoin Transactions.

When:  May 9-10, 2014
Where:  Security BSides Boston 2014, Cambridge, MA

First up of our two speakers is David Bressler. He will discuss Bitcoin Explorer – Visualizing/Monitoring Bitcoin Transactions.

Bitcoin was originally made public as a proof-of-concept in 2009.  Since then, Bitcoin and other crypto currencies have been gaining a vast amount of public attention with their valuation and volatility, ultimately making them a target for online criminals to steal.  Bitcoin, in particular, is both controversial and interesting to a large number of people, due to recent attacks on its exchanges. The pseudo-anonymous nature of Bitcoin has also piqued public interest because it makes tracking specific transactions and uncovering the Bitcoin address where the coins are stored difficult.  This talk will go over the basics of crypto currencies, specifically Bitcoin, and demonstrate how anyone could visualize Bitcoin transactions by utilizing the public Bitcoin block chain (general ledger).

Our next Speaker, Joey Peloquin, will discuss Offensive Mobile Forensics.

Offensive Mobile Forensics is a process in which an analyst employs the same techniques and tools potential attackers or criminals use on lost or stolen devices, to determine the actual risk of that loss or theft to the enterprise.  What data is accessible? This talk will educate attendees on some of the tools that can be used, where the most interesting data is stored on the device, and examples of data leakage from actual analysis.  Finally, he’ll perform a couple of live technical demos.

Be sure to visit the Security BSides Boston Conference to hear these accomplished speakers.  Also, stop by to see GuidePoint Security in the exhibit hall.

GuidePoint Security Presents on Web Application Hacking and Defenses

In the Tampa Bay area? Be sure to catch GuidePoint Security’s Principal, Bryan Orme, present How to Hack Web Applications for Profit (And How to Prevent Yours From Being Hacked) at the Tampa Bay ISSA Chapter Meeting this Friday, May 17th at 9 a.m.

Presentation Abstract: How to Hack Web Applications for Profit (And How to Prevent Yours From Being Hacked)

The constant barrage of breaches that we’ve seen over the past several years have made two things very clear—every organization is at risk and every web application is a target. As a security professional, it does not matter whether breaches are brought about by hacktivists such as LulzSec or Anonymous, the acts of criminally minded hackers or nation state sponsored attacks, the consequences of vulnerable web applications can wreak havoc on your company. Attackers are determined, inventive and patient, while your organization’s application portfolio is dynamic, vulnerable and always connected to the Internet. This presentation will discuss why web applications are vulnerable, why they’re under attack, and provide an overview of the most common vulnerabilities found in web applications. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how web applications are attacked, the most common vulnerabilities found in web applications, and how to prevent these vulnerabilities from being identified and exploited in your web applications.
