Presenters:

You are invited to join us for a special presentation:  "The Power of DNS for Threat Intelligence," by Internet pioneer and Farsight Security, Inc. CEO Dr. Paul Vixie and ThreatQuotient Senior Vice President, Strategy, Jonathan Couch. 

Nothing, good or bad, can happen on the Internet without involving the Domain Name System (DNS). DNS offers a commanding view of both the local and global Internet, providing unparalleled intelligence on cybercriminal activities and their attack methods. In this presentation, Dr. Vixie will provide an overview of how cybercriminals abuse DNS to commit crime, from phishing to targeted attacks. Mr. Couch will discuss how security analysts, threat investigators and incident response teams can use DNS intelligence to map criminal campaigns to significantly improve the speed and accuracy of their investigations.

Please note: Seating is Very Limited
