Herding Cats - Carl Brothers, F5 Networks Ensuring that we can provide security and availability for on premise apps and cloud based apps, that are increasingly being accessed from uncontrolled devices feels like a never ending struggle to keep the cats in the corral. Let’s discuss the tools and approaches we can use to ensure that security <> decreased performance, revenue or customer satisfaction.

The Enemy Within - Ramece Cave, Solutionary Web Server Intel Correlation (might change the name). The presentation will discuss how and why web servers play a role in intelligence gathering and threat correlation. It will go over previous hacking campaigns and how data was leveraged for exploitation or exfiltration, and how compromised servers are being used.
