Description

The reason our founder started Detectify is that they wanted to automate hacker knowledge and make it scalable. This is very different from how most hackers work today and what we believe will revolutionize hacking.

@carolinsolskar

Carolin is the Community Manager for Detectify Crowdsource; an invite-only platform for ethical hackers. Detectify Crowdsource works differently from most bug bounty platforms; instead of hacking one company at a time, we focus on commonly used technologies, so that all companies using that technology can be protected.

4. PurpleSharp: Automated Adversary Simulation – 03:45 PM-04:30 PM

Description

Defending enterprise networks against attackers continues to present a difficult challenge for blue teams. Prevention has fallen short; improving detection & response capabilities has proven to be a step in the right direction. However, without the telemetry produced by adversary behavior, building new and testing existing detection capabilities will be constrained. PurpleSharp is an open source adversary simulation tool written in C# that executes adversary techniques within Windows Active Directory environments. The resulting telemetry can be leveraged to measure and improve the efficacy of a detection engineering program. PurpleSharp leverages the MITRE ATT&CK Framework and executes different techniques across the attack life cycle: execution, persistence, privilege escalation, credential access, lateral movement, etc.

5. Supply Chain Perils, Death by Security Alerts, SolarWinds & BlackHat 2021 – 05:00 PM-05:45 PM

Description

Derek Johnson will be covering Matt Tait’s keynote and another session on major supply chain attacks over the past year and how they’re changing best practices in DFIR. Supply chain attacks and software interdependence are creating an existential crisis for the cybersecurity industry

XDR, automation and the growing need to solve the problem of Death by Security Alerts that make things like XDR and SIEM impractical for all but a handful of companies right now.

He will also talk about the SolarWinds lawsuit, because this week they just submitted their formal response in court, and it gets at an issue that I think is becoming more and more important: what if any legal standards or liability threshold should there be when companies with bad security practices get breached?

Finally, we will check in with Derek about what his thoughts are of his first experience at BlackHat!
