The keynote will focus on lessons from military combat that are applicable to the digital domain. As a unit commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, Nate Fick was forced to adapt quickly to the challenges of contemporary warfare – from the paradoxes of counterinsurgency, to the hard-power realities of escalation dominance and deterrence, to the ethics of just war and the ongoing competition for talent. Today, computer security is at a similar inflection point – an industry in which billions of dollars were spent last year, yet 90% of large enterprises are breached, with adversary dwell times averaging 200+ days. Nate's speech will highlight how lessons from the battlefield can empower the security industry to take an offense-based approach to navigating the current threatscape.
Endgame's offense-based approach to automate the hunt for adversaries derives from its heritage running the largest cyber operations in the world with the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. Its research has revealed a distinct gap in organizations' abilities to proactively hunt for cyber threats and risks. The traditional security stack, such as antivirus, network IDSes, and firewalls, are no longer sufficient to catch today's advanced threats – leaving enterprises vulnerable to breaches that bypass perimeter defenses.
