TITLE: Detecting Cyber Attacks with Network Sensors
ABSTRACT: Businesses are increasingly falling victim to cyber attacks of various shapes and sizes. However, the challenge of collecting and storing relevant logs, detecting, containing and remediating breaches, is difficult to manage for most system- and network administrators. This talk will elaborate on how mnemonic helps businesses increase their network visibility and response capabilities, not only by passively sniffing the wire, but also by incorporating logs from existing systems within the enterprise.
Jan Henrik Schou Straumsheim is Senior Threat Intelligence Analyst and Incident Responder at mnemonic's Managed Security Services (MSS) Department. He has participated and led investigations into data breaches at a wide variety of Norwegian businesses. Jan Henrik is pursuing a Master's in Information Security from Gjøvik University College, holds a B.Sc. in IT Management from BI Norwegian Business School, as well as studies from the Norwegian Defence Intelligence School.
