Thursday, November 16, 2017

5:30 PM – Networking & Dinner

6:00 PM – ISSA-NOVA Program

DaveLosenSecurity Metrics and Metric driven security programs are great buzz words. However, it is important that professionals understand the benefits of tracking and trending security metrics, how to collect them, and to determine what actionable items they indicate. This talk will provide an overview of several industry standard security metrics, talk about their history, and show how a few may be used for the benefit of a proactive, modern, security team.

As co-founder of Sergeant Laboratories and its Director of Customer Success, Dave Losen has spent over 20 years investigating, hacking, and developing advanced security tools, like the product AristotleInsight. He has the unique ability to bridge the gap between kiddy scripting hacker tools to advanced big data machine learning systems, while being able to explain it all in plain English.

Dave holds a patent on system monitoring that is a method for detecting and recording user interactions on an enterprise network, then presenting the results in an organized report. He has also earned recognition, a Prosecution Team Award, from the Wisconsin Association of Computer Crime Investigators (WACCI) for his forensic analysis.
