|12:15-12:30||Welcome and Cyber Security News Update, Jon Edney [CISSP, CEH]|
|12:30-13:30||Threat Intelligence and the Dark Web, Jeremy Jones, Head of Cyber Security, Theta|
An air force wouldn’t fly unless they knew where the enemy surface-to-air missiles were and an army wouldn’t march unless they knew about the terrain they had to cross. Intelligence is therefore a key enabler of military operations that mitigates risk and enables better decision making, yet we think it’s ok to traverse the Internet without any thought as to the threats we might face.
The answers to our cyber security often do not lie inside our own environment so we must look beyond our firewalls for early warning of an attack or the first hints of a data breach. The dark web is where your data is sold, attacks are planned and our wider security threatened. This presentation will examine the importance of threat intelligence and tools that are used to scrape the dark web for information which can be refined into intelligence and consumed by organisations to mitigate risk and optimise decision making.
Jeremy leads Theta’s Cyber Security team and has worked in both defensive and offensive cyber operations roles for the UK government. He has a deep understanding of nation state cyber tradecraft and cyber targeting and uses this experience to educate New Zealand businesses in detecting and defeating cyber adversaries.
A light lunch will be provided at this session courtesy of Theta.
