When many smart people are in the same room, everyone can learn from everyone else. Leaders will walk the assembled Summit participants through a realistic, challenging case scenario for enterprise management that faces a cyber crisis. The scenario will raise a thicket of technical, practical, legal, and public communications issues. As these issues come up, the floor will be open for questions, discussion and debate. Participants will evaluate the options available to management and learn by living through a simulated experience with peers and experts.

Session: Talking to the Techs: Asking the Right Questions

Schedule: August 21, 2018, 2:40 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.

Presenter: Eric Zimmerman

If (when) you suffer a breach, you’ll need to respond appropriately, and immediately. But you’ll also have to retrace your steps to root out the causes. Every contact leaves a trace, and digital forensics professionals can unearth artifacts to help determine causes, fix the vulnerabilities to mitigate additional damage, and provide evidence you’ll need if further legal action becomes necessary. But how can you collaborate with the digital forensic examiners when you don’t have a deep understanding of the technology? Summit co-chair Eric Zimmerman, instructor of SANS’s FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response and Threat Hunting course, author of X-Ways Forensics Practitioner's Guide, and a former Special Agent with the FBI, will break it down for you. Learn the lingo, familiarize yourself with the kinds of forensic artifacts you’ll need in a breach situation, and hone the skill of asking for what you need in a way that enables your cyber security team to deliver.
