SAS preview: Brian Bartholomew

In this Security Analyst Summit preview, Jeff sits down with Brian Bartholomew of GReAT to discuss the conference and his upcoming training on threat intelligence.

It is that time of year again, and #TheSAS2019 will be here before we know it. This year’s conference is in Singapore, and as usual, the presenters will showcase a lot of interesting research. Attendees can also learn in training sessions about a wide variety of topics from our experts on the Global Research and Analysis Team.

In this podcast, I sit down with Brian Bartholomew, who will conduct a training session, to discuss what he envisions for this year’s edition of the Security Analyst Summit. His training, called The Good and the GReAT — Stepping up Your Threat Intelligence Game, will be held with Brian Candlish of Telstra Threat Labs and will focus on:

  • Concepts of threat intelligence
  • The intelligence life cycle
  • Defining intelligence requirements
  • Collecting and processing data
  • Maximizing data through automation
  • Open-source/custom tools
  • Threat hunting in large security data sets
  • Intelligence reporting
  • Dealing with biases
  • Using estimative language

Each day will end with large hands-on labs.
