Presentation: Too many threats not enough time? This is the challenge for security professionals today, as we become inundated with data generated security devices, sensors, applications and remote feeds we can easily become numb to what our data is trying to tell us and often end up ignoring critical warning signs of compromise. This presentation will attempt to put some method to our madness and explain how to apply threat intelligence tools and data so that it is more than just speeds and feeds, but a legitimate resource and ally against increasingly well-resourced and cunning adversaries.

Presenter: Ken Westin of Tripwire is a security analyst and "creative technologist" with 14 years’ experience building and breaking things through the use/misuse of technology. His technology exploits and endeavors have been featured in Forbes, Good Morning America, Dateline, New York Times, The Economist and has won awards from MIT, CTIA, Oregon Technology Awards, SXSW, Entrepreneur and named in Portland Business Journal's 2013 "40 Under 40". He has worked with law enforcement and journalists utilizing various technologies to unveil organized crime rings, recover stolen cars, even a carjacking amongst other crimes.
