The “enumeration of badness” approach to security has failed for two major reasons. First, the amount of “badness” is practically infinite. Second, it’s unrealistic to detect all future “badness” based on the past. Yet, the majority of products are still based on this method. Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities are just one example of the unpredictability of future “badness”. However, “goodness” is actually finite. So, is it possible to create a map of all legitimate OS behavior? The answer is yes.
Security and fraud investigations often require sifting through many logs and transactions, yet typical search and dashboard tools feel closer to 1985 technology than 2045. This talk shares two technologies Graphistry has been developing to supercharge the investigation process. First, we show how GPU cloud streaming scales visual analytics, and especially so for link analysis.

Generating SSH keys is free, but poor SSH key practices expose businesses to costly risk. It takes just one SSH key for a cybercriminal to access an organization’s network and pivot to gain further access to the most sensitive systems and data.

Perfect protection is impossible. By now we all know that we can’t just buy one more silver bullet to fix our problems. Every organization manages something like 20 distinct security technologies, with enough staff and time to operate 5 of them well. We can’t just hire more professionals – the talent pool has been drained. So we have little choice – we need to get our existing security investments to work together. This talk will highlight the need for, and then show real examples of, inter-product and inter-vendor integrations that can automate workflows and produce tangible operation
