Jul 28, 2015, 08:15 ET from LogRhythm

BOULDER, Colo., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LogRhythm, The Security Intelligence Company, today announced that Greg Foss, senior security research engineer, and Thomas Hegel, incident response and security analytics engineer, both with LogRhythm Labs, will deliver a sponsored session on "Tactical Diversion-Driven Defense" at Black Hat USA 2015 on August 5, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time.

Traditionally, security analysts have focused on blocking attackers and keeping them out. This session will take a different approach to IT security by making the hackers, in a sense, the victims. Foss and Hegel will apply their extensive experience in advanced defense and incident response to outline techniques that deceive attackers in order to divert and track them. They will further show how these techniques can be applied to rapidly respond to incidents and help train users to better identify and inform IT of potential attacks.

In addition, LogRhythm will be releasing a new open source incident response tool designed to assist with rapid data acquisition and quarantine of remote hosts within the enterprise.
