The state of threat intelligence in the information security community is still very immature. Many organizations are still combating threats in a reactive manner, only learning what they're dealing with, well...when they're dealing with it. There is a wealth of information in the community, and many organizations have been gathering data about attackers and trends for years. How can we share that information, and what kinds of intelligence are most valuable? In this presentation, we'll start with a brief overview of AlienVault's Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), and then we'll discuss attack trends and techniques seen in enterprise networks today, with supporting data from AlienVault OTX. We'll also take a look at some new models for collaboration and improving the state of threat intelligence going forward.

As cyber attacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations are investing more into incident detection and response capabilities. Event monitoring and correlation technologies and security operations are often tied to incident handling responsibilities, but the number of attack variations is staggering, and many organizations are struggling to develop incident detection and response processes that work for different situations. In this webcast, we'll outline the most common types of events and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that naturally feed intelligent correlation rules, and walk through a number of different incident types based on these. We'll also outline the differences in response strategies that make the most sense depending on what types of incidents may be occurring. By building a smarter incident response playbook, you'll be better equipped to detect and respond more effectively in a number of scenarios.

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security. Join AlienVault for this session to learn: • The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated • Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them • Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation • How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most
