Brett Peppe & Greg Reith, T-Mobile: "Threat Intelligence II, Don’t trust the wizard behind the curtain”
One of the most difficult aspects of developing threat intelligence is determining what ground truth really is. Problems today in many cases are complex, wicked and are judged in many cases by using information that is ambiguous, incomplete, incorrect and in some cases deceptive.
The intent of this talk is to take an objective view into how aspects like mindset, all source reporting and other components impact intelligence analysis and what can be done to mitigate some of these impacts.
Greg Reith has over 35 years of security experience in a wide variety of areas, and has done work for the Federal Government, telecommunications, healthcare, power and energy and other industries.  His current focus is on threat intelligence and he has filled roles in the intelligence fields as a Special Forces operator with a specialty in intelligence operations and analysis as well as filling roles as the subject matter expert in intelligence related roles for other organizations.
Brett Peppe CISSP has been involved with systems security architectures since the mid-1990s, primarily for securing sensitive telecommunications, insurance, credit and financial data in both the commercial and Federal Government sectors.  His current focus is on secure big data architectures, data science, simulation and security analytics.  He is an invited speaker and published author on enterprise performance analytics.
Ed Kimm, Vice President, Stratacore:
“DATA SECURITY & CYBER THREATS: Navigating a vast landscape”
With the understandable trend towards PII, Cloud, and Cyber Threats, it’s no surprise that for both the consumer and enterprise customer, it can be an extremely confusing landscape to sift trying to figure out what solution is best.  Determining which is the safest route to go when it comes to deciding how to secure and protect proprietary data can be a daunting task, no matter what the size of organization.  What solution is best for me?  How is CASB going to further impact the market?  Why will Cyber Insurance be even hotter moving forward?  Which Cloud deployment model is right for my business?  Join us to learn these along with some of the newest trends in Cyber Security, DRaaS, and Interoperability.
As the VP of Cloud Solutions & Strategic Alliances at StrataCore, Ed is responsible for consulting on solution development for cloud (XaaS) and security services, as well as building relationships with referral partners and resellers.
Ed began his IT career in 1998 at Compass Communications as the Director of Sales for their Data Center and Enterprise consulting division. For the past 10 years, Ed worked as a Managing Partner, CRO at Wow Technologies. During his time at Wow, he assisted with architecting their hybrid IT & cloud practice, business development, building channel sales, and sales & marketing operations.
In his spare time, Ed serves as a Board Member for numerous 501(c)3s including Seattle Charity Events, which provides advocacy for underprivileged, neglected, and abused children and Grow 50, providing mentorship, consulting and counsel for startups.
