Selected Talk Abstracts

People-centric Security Culture - George Ehrhorn

In the “people, process, technology” triumvirate people need to come first. The fundamental ingredient of culture is people. A presentation to explore 5 myths about security culture and the realities you will face.


An APT Pupil?: Sophisticated Intruders in a University Environment - Nathan Hall

During 2015, Harvard University was the target of multiple APT actors (i.e. professional hacking groups working for a foreign government). This presentation will take you through one successful intrusion that spanned multiple months. The presentation will cover the attacker's MO and tools they used, how we detected and investigated the intrusion, and finally our lessons learned and remediation efforts.


NIST's  National Initiative for Cyber-security Education (NICE) - Rodney Petersen 

Cybersecurity practitioners have taken a variety of routes to get to their jobs.  However, as the profession continues to evolve and the demand for a skilled workforce grows so does the need for better defined academic and career pathways.  The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) is compromised of a variety of coordinated activities, including the Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity and the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework.  This interactive session will seek audience input on federal policy activities and programs designed to create a world-class cybersecurity education, training, and workforce system.

 Cybersecurity Insurance: The Fundamentals and Value before the Breach

Cyber criminals are targeting colleges and universities to exploit the valuable data they hold including payment, health, and personal information of students, faculty, staff and alumni. Learn how cyber liability insurance can protect universities before an event takes place by helping supply them with risk management tools and advice and access to other professionals in the cyber security community that can help with their information security programs. This session will outline the types of services available through these policies before there is a breach. This session will also outline the steps universities can take to understand and mitigate the risk to their cyber valuables.
