Topic: Red Team Workshop by Vectra

Date: February 16, 2021, 10:00 am - 1:30 pm MT; 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET
Join this Red Team Workshop, an educational lab where individuals can better understand the skills and tactics of the adversary. Participants will learn about critical attack vectors and how attackers plot, ploy and work their way into enterprise vulnerabilities. Participants will then take training wheels off for an open play as a “Red Team” attacker. Attendees will reconvene for a working session, walking through the live attacks from the morning and how blue teams, or the threat hunters, actually identify, detect and respond to advanced threats.

Note: Receive 3.5 CPE credits and a digital certificate upon completion. 
The deadline to register is February 9th and is open to the first 30 participants.


January 2021 Chapter Meeting - Web

Posted by Administrator Thursday, January 7, 2021

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals for a virtual meeting on January 28th, 2020.

Topic:   O365 Security

Topic Summary: 
We'll navigate through uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud and dissecting a real-world attack. The same technology that makes the cloud dynamic can have the opposite effect on an organization’s ability to implement detection and response in cloud environments. This includes the adding additional layer of preventative controls in addition to MFA, because it's increasingly being bypassed in O365 as an example. Jason Stepp, Security Engineer with Vectra, will help us navigate through the uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud, reviewing the top cloud security threats, and dissecting a real-world cloud attack. Additionally, he'll provide key takeaways for managing access, detection and response, and security operations.

  Jason Stepp, Vectra
Jason Stepp  brings 20 years of security operations and engineering experience into his current role at Vectra. Jason’s background includes leading and managing the enterprise security in the Higher Education, health care, educational, and government environments.
