Cyber Deception: Unbeatable Defense

We will begin with an overview of cyber deception; what it is and why we need it. We will discuss how cyber deception can be used for attack detection, attacker distraction, attack disruption, the collection of environment-specific cyber threat intelligence, and to actively engage attackers in real time. We can also digress from the formal presentation and just talk. Attendee engagement is encouraged including questions and even "push back". Do you have questions about cyber deception? Do you believe it is amazing? Do you think it is the latest "snake oil" incorrectly sold as a universal cure to all defensive woes? Let's talk about it.
