My boss Grady Summers, GE CISO, and I will be presenting one of the keynotes at the Information Security Summit, 29-30 October, in Warrensville Heights, Ohio. Our topic is "CISO + CIRT = Success."
In 2007, the CISO of General Electric decided to invest in a dedicated program to detect and respond to intrusions, as a centralized, global function within GE. Since then, GE has built a Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT), deployed dozens of sensors acorss the company, aggregated billions of log records, and institutionalized its detection and response processes. In this presentation, the CISO of GE (Grady Summers) and GE's Director of Incident Response (Richard Bejtlich) will describe their experience with this process.
I am really excited about the pre-conference training at this event. I will participate in Introduction to Malware Dissection by Tyler Hudak, GE-CIRT's reverse engineer. This is a two day course for less than $500. You cannot beat the quality of this training at that price, period!
