Inside Black Hat: Defending One of the ‘Most Hostile Networks in the World’ 🇬🇧

Time: 10:45 > 11:30
Location: Zone 1 - Gaston Berger conference stage

The network at Black Hat is like no other network in the world. On an average network defenders spend most of their day looking for something, anything, malicious. It’s a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. But what if the majority of the traffic on your network is malicious? What if it’s all bad? How do you find the bad within the bad? When you’re defending the Black Hat network, you’re not looking for a needle in a haystack, you’re looking for a needle in a needle stack.

Join me as we discuss the unique challenge of deploying and securing a network where all of your users are hackers. At Black Hat, every five minutes we see the kind of traffic that would make a SOC analysts hair turn white. So come discover how we decide what to focus on, to defend, or to block, and which technologies, skills, and data really matter. I’ll share everything I can about the history of the network, the infrastructure we’re using today, and the traffic patterns that keep us sweating, and laughing, well into the night.
