LSEC CTI 2020, 7th Cyber Threat Intelligence


Already for the 7th time, our annual Cyber Threat Intelligence event attracted cyber security specialists from local organizations and abroad, with speakers from CA, US, Czech Republik, The Netherlands and Germany. Reflections on the use of Cyber Threat Intelligence, and its place in the SOC and Incident Management world, as an integrated part of Cyber Security Management. Whether large or small organizations, and large or small cybersecurity teams, all companies will require some level of oversight and insight in the security threats and related risks posed to them. Cyber Threat Intelligence, supported by multiple platforms in open source (MISP, OpenCTI, ...) or with tools available in the market (EclecticIQ, Maltego, IBM, ...) insight in threat actors, strategies, playbooks, cve's, IoC's and how they relate to you and your organization can be facilitated. Joe Woodruff kicked off with an interesting economical insight into the value for information sharing. Dominik Smoniewski presented the top Red Teaming activities from the ECB and the NBB from TIBER and their impact on the financial institutions, with a call for broadening this activity amongst mature financial services organisations and other sectors. Aaron Cherrington brought to our attention the importance for business continuity in today's challenging Corona Virus dominated news, and warned us to be carefull for hackers stuck at home and developing new ransomware flavors or launching phising campaigns. Both Aish from Maltego and Jason Keirstead from IBM presented their view on intelligence management platforms. An open source oriented perspective, focusing on system integration versus a complete platform including OSINT and commercial feeds. Jan an Nikolaos from Avast gave a perspective on the evolutions of the mobile malwares and how to deal with them. Alain Sanchez presented an inside perspective on Fortinet's apprach and use of ML and AI. Presentations available to participants and members. This email address is being protected from spambots.

A day of CSA (Cloud Security Alliance) Belux and LSEC Cloud Security. From vulnerability assessements best practices (Toreon) in the cloud to secdeveops and agile (Bitsensor). From containers and kubernetes developments and their security management challenges (Trend Micro) to key management and hardware keys (ATOS), from Cloud Act to GDPR Code of Conduct (CSA) and Cloud Services Providers certification (TimeLex & LSEC). From cloud application governance (KBC) to layer seven solutions encapsulating all security risks (Symantec). The cloud is omnipresent and not caring is being plain ignorant on some of the most exciting current security developments and related opportunities.

Managing Digital Identities in the 21st century, LSEC Conference April 25th

In 2019 customers and partners should be presented one single interface to all of the backend systems of their services providers. They should be able to choose between the different multifactor applications they have, whenever they want and whereever they are. Back and identity and access systems should be agnostic about this and should be ready to be distributed, decentralized, utilising OTP (one time password) and MFA (multifactor authentication) or step up authentication. Not only customers, but systems should be able to provision the complexity of devices, systems, applications and other services. Technologies, expertise and experiences exist to support this in order to reduce digital identity theft, malicious access attempts and still reducing the burden of the customer access control. Identity and Access in the 21st centurt support the digital transformation of organizations, systems and technologies in a seamless way. Financial institutions organize themselves to reduce the administrative burden for their business customers (Isabel) by facilitating KYC (know your customer) amongst themselves, and the respective mandates for financial services. Technologies (Forgerock) support the ease of the single customer accessing multiple legacy back-end services seamlessly. Decentralized and distributed authentication, identification are being made possible (Trustbuilder and KEYP) going towards Zero Knowledge Proof and reducing the burden for personal dataprotection, and providing seamless multifator possibilities. Proving compliance and controlling access throughout multiple systems and cloud environments (Brainwave) for management, audit and DPO can be made easy. Multifactor authentication and OTP increase the security levels, but technologies have lowered the barriers for customers to use them (InWebo). With developments in industry (IDSA) this won't be limited to data interactions within an organization. Walls are being teared down to access company confidential data. A short impression of a day at the races of the LSEC Digital Identities Forum 2019 held on April 25th in Brussels at the Vandervalk Hotel in Diegem. 

For an overview of the day and presentation, including a way to contact the presentors and participants, take a look a the agenda at a glance.
