Best Practice for Threat Hunting

Level 100 Why Cloud-native Endpoint Protection is the Best Practice to Aid With Threat Hunting?

In the modern workplace, IT needs to have the tools to be able to secure users from any location at any time. Legacy tools have proven to become more of a hindrance and less of an asset. This creates security gaps and black holes across the modern workplace. In this session we will discuss why cloud native endpoint solutions could be the most critical tool to your environment.

Level 200 How Does Threat Hunting Work?

Legacy technologies lack breadth and depth on solution capabilities, lack of visibility outside of the network. In this session we will discuss how you can still have full endpoint visibility no matter where your users are based. Learn how to threat hunt from a cloud native solution.

Level 300 How Does Threat Hunting Give Visibility to the Most Complex Attacks?

When the most complex attacks bring organizations to their knees, usually we find that lack of threat context, visibility and preventive capabilities are the biggest downfall. In this session our Solution Architect at VMware Carbon Black will demonstrate how the Carbon Black Cloud will stop the most complex of attacks.

Level 200 The "Future Ready" Security Operations Center

The role of the InfoSec team has never been more important and has never been a greater challenge. Legacy security solutions are no longer capable of solving the challenges facing a SOC. They are largely ineffective against new forms of threats such as ransomware and non-malware attacks. They involve far too many point tools resulting in too many agents collecting the same data, and too many consoles -- leading to misconfiguration and misalignment of controls. The lack of visibility and context is making it difficult to investigate and respond to attacks. Silos between IT and InfoSec make it difficult to operationalize more of security through IT. And to top it all off, the current pandemic is forcing us all to work remote -- including many security teams.

In this session, Tom Corn, Senior Vice President of Security Products at VMware, will be unveiling major advancements in our Carbon Black Cloud platform -- advancements that will have an enormous impact on addressing these challenges. You will see how we are delivering on the promise of intrinsic security; with deep integrations into the infrastructure -- making security built-in versus bolted-on; expanding our sources of context and control -- broadening into XDR. And integrating with IT consoles -- to break down the silos between IT and InfoSec. And delivering these capabilities as SaaS to truly enable the “virtual SOC” -- one that embraces a distributed workforce. Come hear the latest about the Carbon Black Cloud platform. Come see what a future ready SOC looks like.

Domain Driven Design

Level 100 Refactor and Do It Safely

We've all been there, facing a blinking cursor. You need to build a new feature, but aren't sure where to start. Or you have to fix something in your app, and you're unsure why it broke. This situation is common with Big Ball of Mud architectures. This design hinders your release velocity. And it makes it near-impossible to seize new business opportunities. How can you move on from this situation? Most of us also know what good design is. We talk a lot about Domain-Driven Design, modeling, event storming and Test-Driven Development. Here's the challenge: how to apply this thinking to your current systems. How do we modernize the app? How do convince people we should modernize it? How do we overcome the lack of testing? Or lack of business knowledge? Attend this session to answer these questions and more. You'll learn about techniques that have proven to work in companies like yours.

Level 200 State or Events - Which Shall I Keep?

Tired of fancy abstractions without actual down to earth implementation? In this talk we will go through both benefits and problems by implementing a real example of event-driven architecture. This will be a lot live coding and we will tackle how to break monoliths. We are going to tackle the problems step by step from various perspectives. From the point of view of the stakeholders our software should have quick time to market, ability to do complex data reporting and fast way to extend and to deploy new features. On the other hand, our fellow developers would be interested in learning curve when it comes to events and how it differs in turns of e.g. unit testing. At the end of each step it will be clear what kind of problems/benefits we have. The talk is going to cover a broad set of buzzwords like: event storming and DDD for requirements gathering, event sourcing, test-driven development, CQRS, REST, spring cloud, spring boot, spring mvc, spring data and project reactor for implementation and cloud for deployment.

Level 300 Testing: Love, Hate, Love

In this live coding session, we will refactor a part of some legacy system. We will approach the problem pragmatically, identifying issues and fixing them by applying rules and patterns related to modularity, cohesion, testability, and more. We will also see how Domain Driven Design can help us achieve the goal of clean and solid code.
