Adaptive Security


As humans we process information as it is presented to us. We use the information presented to us to decide on how to react and possibly adapt to the current situation. This trait has a lot of advantages and has served us well over many years. Our approach to the security of our systems should be much the same. Join Aaron as he introduces patterns for processing potentially malicious activity and weaving an adaptive security system.

Building A Dynamic Security Response Environment


As we expand our technological footprint, our environment grows. Our risk grows with it. While we have made advancements in dynamic environments we have done little in the security space. Threats come and go, and our ability to quickly respond to the situation is lackluster at best. We block attackers by updating block lists and running deployment scripts. This takes time and can lead to availability issues. Join Aaron as he walks through creating an environment that can quickly respond to web based threats as they appear.
