Helping Protect Against Todays Cyber Threats

My CFP Submission for Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit 2018

So, I’m pushing the envelope here just a bit with this Call Papers for the 2018 Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit taking place in Mexico City, March 7-11. 

I’d be interested to hear your feedback. Over the top? Too Microsoft? Offensive already and I haven’t even taken the stage? Think they’ll bite?
Let me know in the comments section below. 
Session Title: Calling Windows Admins Out – Where We Failed in 2017

WannaCry and NotPetya never should have occurred to begin with! 

In this session, Duncan McAlynn, 6x Microsoft MVP, published author and industry columnist will break down the massive malware outbreaks of 2017 and how miserably sysadmins around the world failed to protect their organisations against these threats. 

Attendees of this session will walk away with a clear understanding of the attack surfaces and vectors used, as well as the countermeasures that should have already been in place – going well beyond the MS17-010 security update. 

By combining native Windows operating system features, Active Directory group policy objects, free solution accelerators and 3rd party products, corporations, government agencies and learning institutes around the globe could have and should have prevented these outbreaks from ever occurring. 

It’s time to get off of our asses and as McAlynn often tweets #makeshithapn 

NOTE: This is a “trigger warning” session not for the easily offended. You have been warned!
