Black Hat USA Offers Fresh Perspectives on Enterprise Cybersecurity

Learn new enterprise-grade techniques for identifying vulnerabilities, improving Active Directory security, and building trust with customers at Black Hat USA this summer.

Cybersecurity at the enterprise level is a unique beast, and there’s no better place to meet fellow enterprise security professionals and learn new tricks than Black Hat USA in Las Vegas this August.

There’s a whole Enterprise track of Briefings dedicated to the unique challenges of securely managing the big platforms and processes found in enterprises, including large data centers, Active Directory management and bug bounty programs.

For example, Finding Our Path: How We're Trying to Improve Active Directory Security is a Briefing to see if you’re someone who regularly works with Microsoft’s Active Directory, as it promises to be rich in practical lessons learned from an experienced cybersecurity researcher.

Whether your network has 50, 5,000, or 500,000 computers joined to Active Directory, you’ll walk away from this Briefing knowing how to greatly enhance your organization’s Active Directory security posture in days or weeks, not years.

Plus, On Trust: Stories from the Front Lines will give you some unique insight into what it’s like to lead the security programs of some of the world’s preeminent companies through times of great change.

Speaker Jamil Farshchi helped rebuild (among others) the cybersecurity systems of both The Home Depot and Equifax after their devastating data breaches in 2014 and 2017. At t Black Hat USA he’ll explore how companies, like people, earn trust and develop character -- and discuss why a key determinant of that character is their approach to security and privacy..

In Predictive Vulnerability Scoring System two experienced data scientists will show you why it’s so important to efficiently prioritize your vulnerabilities, what we miss by trusting Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) scores, and what to take into consideration when focusing on vulnerabilities posing the greatest risks to organizations.

You’ll also gain a fresh understanding of the probability of a vulnerability being exploited, based on researchers’ work studying tens of thousands of vulnerabilities and CVSS scores. The speakers will then show you how they used all that data (as well as billions of in-the-wild events collected over five years) in to create a machine learning model for predicting the probability of a vulnerability being exploited, a scoring system which outperforms CVSS on every metric: accuracy, efficiency and coverage.

For more information about these Briefings and many more check out the Black Hat USA Briefings page, which is regularly updated with new content as we get closer to the event.

Black Hat USA returns to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
