Cisco Systems is participating in the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center’s (FLETC) Cybercrime Conference, held July 6-8, 2016, in Glynco, Georgia. The purpose of this event is to foster education and awareness of the current threats and innovations that may impact today’s law enforcement officers and the manner in which they deal with cybercrime. The intent is to educate investigators with exhibits, lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on labs. During the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to collaborate with other FLETC training division staff, Partnering Organizations, as well as vendors.
I will be representing Cisco and presenting on “Dynamic Malware Analysis and Threat Intelligence for Law Enforcement”, on July 7th at 9:30am EDT, in Room 43 of Building 217. In addition from 6-7 July, I will be giving demonstrations of the AMP Threat Grid platform for dynamic malware analysis and threat intelligence, including the integration with EnCase Forensic.
Participants in the FLETC Cybercrime Conference will be eligible for the Cisco AMP Threat Grid Law Enforcement Program. The no-cost AMP Threat Grid for Law Enforcement program is for state and local agencies with less than 1,000 sworn officers. Once empowered with AMP Threat Grid, within seconds of a threat intelligence query or within a few minutes of a submitting a suspicious file or URL for analysis, an investigator has the ability to view and download an easy-to-read and comprehensive report detailing the actual behavior of the submitted file, including changes to the file system, registry, command-and-control communication, downloads, code injection and other malicious activity. In addition, AMP Threat Grid will correlate the file with the millions of samples and billions of artifacts in the threat intelligence database, providing instant global and historical context.
Although the no-cost program is designed for small state and local agencies, Federal law enforcement officers who attend the FLETC Cybercrime Conference will be able to enroll in the AMP Threat Grid for Law Enforcement program. June 20, 2016 is the deadline to register to attend the conference.
