CTI 2020 Conference - Agenda
Tuesday, January 28th , IBM Innovation Center – Brussels

  • Threat intelligence-based ethical red-teaming | Dominik Smoniewski, TIBER Program Manager, National Bank of Belgium: TIBER-EU is the European framework for threat intelligence-based ethical red-teaming. It is the first EU-wide guide on how authorities, entities and threat intelligence and red-team providers should work together to test and improve the cyber resilience of entities by carrying out a controlled cyberattack. TIBER-EU was jointly developed by the ECB and the EU national central banks, approved by the Governing Council of the ECB and published in May 2018. It was inspired by and takes into account the lessons learned from similar initiatives in the United Kingdom (CBEST) and the Netherlands (TIBER-NL).

  • End User Case: Building, Running and Maintaining a CTI Program

  • Simon Thornton, Director of Cyber Threat Analysis and Response at Euroclear [Topic will follow]

  • Aaron Cherrington, Principal Intelligence Analyst, FireEye [USA]: Aaron is a Principal Intelligence Analyst with FireEye for the past seven years; and overall has ten years’ experience as a cyber security intelligence and secure systems design expert.

He has published extensively primarily in classified and closed channels, but was a contributing author to Mandiant’s APT1 report which attributed hackers stealing intellectual property from international corporations, to the Chinese Military.

  • Use cases in Open Source Threat Intelligence - Current state of affairs & vision on the future | Maltego [Germany]: How are organizations today dealing with Intelligence & investigations, completed with a vision of the future: How it should work, challenges,bottlenecks, intel processing...

  • Tracking, evaluating & clustering Mobile Threats and use cases for CTI and Threat Hunting | Jan Sirmer, Malware Analysis Team Lead and Nikolaos Chrysaidos,head of Mobile Threat Intelligence at Avast [Czech Republic]

  • Jan van Linden, Competence Leader CSIRT at Ordina [Belgium]: Jan van Linden leads the CSIRT competence center within Ordina.

Dr Frosch is an experienced cyber security expert, having done multiple interesting investigations and involved in the reverse engineering of malwares. As a keynote to the LSEC CTI-events, Tilman will impress as a knowledgeable down to earth and visionary Cyber Security expert to follow.

  • Jared Phipps, Vice President Worldwide Engineering at SentinelOne and previous scientist at MITRE [USA]

  • The Value of Open Cybersecurity | Jason Keirstead, Chief Architect at IBM Security Threat Management and OASIS Board of Directors member [ Canada ]

  • Neural Network Based Techniques for Cyber Threat Intelligence and Situational Awareness | Alain Sanchez, Senior CISO Evangelist at Fortinet [France]: Alain Sanchez has 20 years of executive engagement experience in the Network and Telecommunications domain.

Alain held executive positions in Alcatel-Lucent, Accenture, BT-Global Services and Nortel.Alain Sanchez graduated from the University of Technology of Compiegne with a degree in Biological Engineering complemented by a Master degree in industrial processes

  • Intelligence Sharing and Prisoner’s Dilemma | Joseph Woodruff, Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst & Senior Trainer at EclecticIQ [USA]: Prisoner’s Dilemma is one of the most famous examples in game theory. In the scenario, two people are arrested and interrogated separately. Each prisoner has the option to either confess or not confess. If one confesses and the other prisoner does not, the confessor walks free and the non-confessor goes to prison. If they both confess, they both go to prison. If neither confess, they both go to prison but for a lesser sentence. Game theory allows us the opportunity to predict the likely outcome of such a scenario. Often intelligence sharing is not done in an open way which can be modeled with prisoner’s dilemma. However, this inadequate sharing contributes to organizations’ inability to keep up with the ever-changing threat landscape. The research will utilize the cost of a data breach reported by IBM, in order to provide real world implications of actively participating in sharing communities and establish links between intelligence sharing and prisoner’s dilemma. Once parallels between the current state of intelligence sharing and prisoner’s dilemma are established, the study will evaluate several strategies for solving this game, including Nash equilibrium compared to pareto optimal and the effect of iterative game play.
