SPEAKER: C. Matthew Curtin
TOPIC: When Prevention Fails: The Role of IPS in Incident Response
WHEN: July 8, 2010 4:00PM-4:45PM EDT
Intrusion prevention technology is understandably focused on using network data to detect and to stop intrusions in progress. When (not if) intrusion prevention systems fail to prevent intrusions, can they provide any value to the management of an incident?
This case study shows the IPS technology in place, the role that it played in addressing the incident, and how the incident progressed when the IPS failed to achieve its expected objectives. Lessons learned will include consideration of how IPS technology can better be deployed, how available data may be used to assess fast-moving situations, and how IPS technology can fit into a larger program for identifying and responding to security incidents.
Curtin is a forensic computer expert. He analyzes information technology and electronic stored information in incident response and to answer questions that arise in adjudication. He has appeared as an expert witness in both civil and criminal cases, dealing with everything from electronic discovery to assessment of information technology in practice. Since 1998, Mr. Curtin has maintained a regular academic appointment as a Lecturer at The Ohio State University's Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
