  • TOPIC:
    Is your organization protected by X, Y, and Z? Do you have vulnerability assessments preformed that “prove” you’re protected from outside threats? I’m here to tell you there’s always a way in, at least, Microsoft thinks so. The latest Windows and Active Directory defenses take an ‘Assumed Breach’ mentality, looking inward for suspicious activity. We’ll hear a few real-world examples of attacks against organizations that don’t utilize any malware but instead, take advantage of weaknesses within organization’s AD and its users. I hope to clarify where traditional defenses fail and your penetration tests might be giving you a false sense of security. As the perimeter is quickly dissolving, How are you working to detect suspicious activity of your users?
    Ryan Preston is the Security Assessments Team Lead at Depth Security. It's rumored that he was raised by monks at a hidden temple known as the House of Zero. He has an alert (love/hate) relationship with XSS. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from Kansas State University and is a certified OSCP with 6 years dedicated assessment experience. Ryan has been publicly thanked for helping identify and resolve vulnerabilities for many Fortune 500 companies including Target, CenturyLink, PayPal, Netflix, eBay, and the Department of Defense.
Come prepared with your experiences, questions, and your security concerns that you wish to bring before a host of like-minded security professionals.
