Lancope Presenting at Converge Detroit Next Week by Angela Frechette Cannon

Next week, Lancope Senior Systems Engineer Charles Herring will present at the Converge information security conference in Detroit. His presentation, “Looking for the Weird,” will discuss the need for more advanced methods of detecting and thwarting stealthy attacks within today’s networks. Herring will demonstrate how looking at traffic deviating from normal patterns via metadata/NetFlow analysis can help keep organizations protected from sophisticated, targeted attacks.

The Converge conference is taking place July 10-11, 2014 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI. The conference was formed from the belief that everyone in an organization from the executive level down needs to be aware of information security. Its goal is to make sure that security meets the needs of the business and vice versa. Converge grew out of the same community responsible for BSides Detroit, which will take place the day after Converge.
