Two Presenters:

Topic: Hacking .Edu: Sophisticated Adversaries vs. the Dorm Wi-Fi

Presenter: Jason Kichen, Director, Security Operations and Research, Versive

University network defenders are facing off against sophisticated adversaries, from organized criminal elements to nation-state actors. These networks are a rich and complex target environment, and Jason
will share why some of the most advanced cyber actors on the planet target these networks and what they do with them.

Jason Kichen is currently the Director of Cybersecurity Services at Versive. Prior to Versive, Jason spent nearly fifteen years in the United States Intelligence Community designing and executing some of the
most complex technical operations against the hardest adversaries around the world. Jason left the government in March 2017 and is working, as rapidly as possible, to deprogram and re-associate with a
world where he can use his real name and not have to lie to everyone, all the time. He’s helped in this endeavor by copious volumes of coffee and red wine.

Topic: Understanding Today’s Threatscape to Determine Tomorrow’s Defenses

Presenter: Chester Wisniewski, Principal Research Scientist, Sophos

In the battle to protect information from theft and misuse, criminals don’t allow grass to grow under their feet. Chester will share his views from the CTO’s Office at Sophos as to the most monumental shifts in the threat landscape and strategies that Sophos is undertaking to combat them. He will also provide ideas on how policy can evolve to work in conjunction with technology to provide a layered defense, only this time the layers required include bits, bytes and behavior.

Chester Wisniewski has been involved in the information security space since the late 1980s. He is currently a Principal Research Scientist in the Office of the CTO. Chet divides his time between research, public speaking, writing and attempting to communicate the complexities of security to the press and public in a way they can understand. Chester has spoken at RSA, InfoSec Europe, LISA, USENIX, Virus Bulletin and many Security BSides events around the world in addition to regularly consulting with NPR, CNN, CBC, The New York Times and other media outlets.
