Working with the IBM's SEE clients on the integrated systems for the modern security operations centers. Over 10 years of IT/Telecom experience on the senior engineering and security positions, leading technology implementations and security compliance projects. Avid reader and consumer of all things security on both sides of the fence - complementing red and blue teaming knowledge.


Aside from the real attack perhaps the ultimate test of your defense and detection solution setup is the ability to detect and interrupt a very skilled red team in action as they build up their attack and pivot through your network compromising critical systems, siphoning sensitive data and establishing long term persistence. Multiple pieces of the puzzle need to fit together in order to enable this and we will try to briefly go through some of them, as well as the frameworks you can use to properly prioritize and orchestrate your defense strategy and operational tools. Perhaps you will not be able to detect every step attacker makes, but even a single good alarm from a properly set network source can point you to start looking for the other adversary actions before it is too late.
