    An overview of the NSA's Cybersecurity Directorate
    by Greg Bednarski

    Must RSVP if you plan to attend.
    Non-members are welcome without charge! Light refreshments will be served.

    Abstract
    On October 1st, 2019, the NSA formally established the Cybersecurity Directorate to “prevent & eradicate” threats - right in our own back yard. What does it look like when an intelligence agency decides to do cybersecurity? Let’s go beyond the talking points to understand the organization, why it was created, what it does, and how it does it. NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate encompasses activities that go well beyond the scope of traditional cybersecurity organizations. This presentation will be structured to introduce each of the seven major mission activities, how they operate, and examples of real and significant problems we're tackling. Key points to be covered include what makes this different from previous information assurance efforts at the NSA; the use of NSA’s foreign signals intelligence activities to power the cybersecurity mission; the directorate’s move to take the fight to the bad guys; why we’re growing our public presence and collaboration efforts; and where we’re most focusing our efforts today.

    Speaker bio
    Greg Bednarski is the head of Cyber Policy & Strategy for the National Security Agency's Cybersecurity Directorate, where he leads the development, coordination, and execution of cyber-related policy with the National Security Council and other US Government departments and agencies on behalf of the NSA. Over the course of the last fourteen years, Greg has been responsible for the management and execution of computer network exploitation activities, capability development, and network analysis for foreign intelligence and cybersecurity purposes, and has provided direct support to offensive cyberspace operations.

    Abstract
    Mr. Wilson will discuss how to use a free and open source tool like Security Onion (SO) to provide hands-on experience and increase our knowledge in incident response and threat hunting. This event is for those with minimal experience working with detection alerts, pcap files, and log management. We will learn how to setup Security Onion at home or on an enterprise network and use its features to complete various network defense challenges. Attendees will leave with a higher level of confidence in network defense as well as the ability to crush their next analyst interview. Participants will also receive a booklet of instructions and credentials to a live SO server which will allow them to continue to practice their new found skills from anywhere in the world.

    Speaker bio
    Mr. Tyrone E. Wilson is an information security professional with 24 years of experience in information technology and systems configuration, including information systems and network security. Wilson also has extensive knowledge in computer network defense, vulnerability assessments, cyber threat analysis, and incident response.
