Validation of security controls – Turning “we think” into “we know” | Jake Williams, Executive Director of Cyber ​​Threat Intelligence for SCYTHE

We all have security controls in place that we hope detect or block malicious actor behavior. But do they? What behaviors? How do you know? If one of your security checks fails, will the activity still be detected? Traditionally, security check tests have been performed by red team operators. Unfortunately, these are ad hoc assessments. Ideally, the red team would be involved in revalidating control with every software update or configuration change, but this is often cost prohibitive. During this session, Jake will help define the value proposition for security control validation and provide guidance on how to operationalize and scale the practice. The next time an executive catches you in the lobby worried about something they read about an incident at a competitor, you can confidently say “don’t worry, we *know* that we will detect it”.
