Next week, some 30,000 security professionals will descend upon the Moscone Center in San Francisco for the 2017 RSA Conference. Cisco’s AMP Threat Grid, the first unified Malware Analysis and Threat Intelligence solution, partnered with RSA to create the RSA Conference Security Operations Center (SOC), where engineers will monitor all traffic on the Moscone Center’s wireless network. Threat Grid is the integrated Dynamic Analysis technology partner for Netwitness Packets (formerly Security Analytics).

You can register now for your free tour of the SOC, where we’ll show real time traffic; plus advanced malware analysis, sandboxing and threat intelligence from Threat Grid. You will also receive a security briefing and have time for Q&A with RSA and Cisco engineers.

Advanced registration is highly recommended. Below are the available tour times. Please fill out the RSA SOC Tour Request Form to request your spot.

  • Tuesday morning, 14 Feb at 11:00am
  • Tuesday afternoon, 14 Feb at 3:00pm
  • Wednesday afternoon, 15 Feb at 1:00pm
  • Wednesday afternoon, 15 Feb at 3:00pm
  • Thursday morning, 16 Feb at 11:00am
  • Thursday afternoon, 16 Feb at 2:00pm

Once onsite, please meet at the Cisco booth (N3517) which is located in the North Hall. Proceed to the RSA SOC Tour sign, where a Threat Grid expert will escort the group to the SOC (max. 20 persons per tour).

RSA customers are able to register for a no cost Threat Grid account within RSA’s Netwitness Packets, to support up to five malware sample submissions per day. You also have direct access to the Threat Grid platform for search, correlation, and advanced malware analysis capabilities.  Additionally, with a full Threat Grid account, you may utilize our well documented API to pull our highly actionable, curated threat feeds derived exclusively from our analysis. Finally, the API allows you to integrate the threat feeds with your specific IT security infrastructure with a Threat Grid subscription.

The content derived from the Threat Grid platform is continuously updated and enriched by the daily submission and analysis of hundreds of thousands of malware samples, which provides you with faster, more accurate detection and response.

Also, I will be facilitating a hands-on Learning Lab: Tracking Ransomware – Using Behavior to Find New Threats. This hands-on interactive lab (bring your own laptop) will explore the latest ransomware trends and how to defend your enterprise against this threat. Attendees will understand what is ransomware, the attack vectors and the commonalities between variants. They will learn the skills to find and track new ransomware with dynamic analysis of behavior, and what is the sophistication of the perpetrators.

See you at RSA Conference 2017!
