"To Observe and Protect: Application Security and Big Data" with John Bauer

"Application Security is a lot more than Security Development Lifecycle(SDL), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) or Web Application Firewalls (WAF). Network and application visibility is required to identify applications and assets which require one or more of these controls. On every network there are external and internal application attack surfaces and they should all be scanned, observed, and protected whether it’s home grown, out of the box or embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT). These data points can be collected with active scanning, application and web log collection and passive observing with Splunk Stream"

Additionally, we will discuss security news, job opportunities, upcoming events.

Thanks,

Matt Weikert

Hello SecMN,


September's meeting is Thursday the 28th, 5:30 PM with the meeting proper getting started at 6:15PM. Location is Donatelli's in White Bear Lake.

"Precursor Detection of Data Exfiltration: Best Practices and Mitigation" with Jeremy Swenson

"At present, there are very few proven tools and methodologies for reliable early detection of data exfiltration. Most organizations are likely to be breached in some way. Although there are many reliable indicators of compromise (IOCs), they are complex, constantly changing, and are not specific enough. They have not been credibly tied to precursors to data exfiltration in an effective way. On average, it takes an organization 99 days to discover network penetration and 201 days for data exfiltration to be discovered. The goal of this research is to 1) identify and 2) corroborate the precursors for 3) early mitigation of the next large complex data breach."

Hello SecMN,


With Secure360 happening next week, the board has decided to take this month off from meeting up, as to not interfere with anyone's wanting to attend both SecMN and Secure360.

We will reconvene in June. Stay tuned for a date and topic. See everyone next month!
