VPLS Solutions is proud to be a Sponsor at ISSA Hawaii’s Annual Discover Security Conference 2018

Topic: Offense and Defense: It’s good to play both sides.

Successful attacks continue on many organizations despite the continued investments in the
latest technologies. To successfully defend our cyber assets whether from a Nation State
Actor or an Organized Criminal, companies need to understand both their adversary’s
tradecraft as well as how to ensure their security posture is properly designed to continually
resist their TTPs. With the limited skilled resources this can be difficult however with the right
foundational information it’s much more achievable. This talk will focus on how to effectively
leverage freely available information such as the Mitre ATT&CK Matrix to achieve better
situational awareness and to more accurately plan and prioritize future security
