Leveraging Red for Defense, by David Kennedy

There's no question that defense has gotten better when it comes to identifying threats early on in an attack. Companies still struggle beyond traditional attack avenues and have a difficult path into understanding how to progress when it comes to identifying unusual behaviors.

This talk will dive into red team tactics and the best methods for leveraging red to identify the best path to building your monitoring and detection capabilities. Going purple helps companies get better while having some fun with understanding attack techniques.

Let's dive into understanding how attacks work and building specific detections on them. This presentation will be a blend of technical and non-technical and go through very specific use cases around monitoring and detection as well as ways to enhance your monitoring and detection capabilities.
