The discussion will be “Collecting Threat Data Using Distributed Deception.” Please join us for this in-person event. Pizza and refreshments will be provided before the discussion. Seats are limited, so please reserve yours today! 

Collecting Threat Data Using Distributed Deception What happens when you deploy honeypots in different geographical locations and then monitor, collect, and analyze the threat data for several years? The Fakelabs Project is a practitioner’s materialization of this idea. This talk will discuss the project’s architecture, observations, automation, derived products, and lessons learned. In addition, there will be demos and suggestions for how defenders can apply the information presented.
