==================================================



GRAPH THE PLANET 2019 brings together security practioners to share graph practices. From killchain analysis, auditing authority, and powering automated detection, to segmentation, attribution and research, an open secret in security is graph techniques. They often require employing a mix of practices that are not well-documented. Attendees and speakers span frontline incident responders and secops to data scientists and startups. GRAPH THE PLANET brings everyone together to foster conversations and share lessons that are often hard to have beyond a SOC or data team.


Sample topics

  • IR, Hunt, Intel, Research, Red Team, Network Security, SecOps
  • Killchains, reachability, knowledge graph for automated detection, segmentation & prioritization, network mapping (defensive+offensive), attribution & campaign analysis, workflow integration, situational awareness
  • New frontiers and adjacent problems: Fraud, influence campaigns, blockchain
  • Data engineering: Graph databases, knowledge graph, scaleout analytics, scale
  • Data science: Modeling, detection, algorithms, graph neural nets, ...


Logistics

* Free, catered, and one block from Moscone!

* Sign up while tickets last: We will check registrations at the door

* Event staff will bring your from the lobby to Bloomberg's event space on the 22nd floor

* The format is short talks by invited experts. This encourages mixing high-signal talks with follow-on hallway conversations.


Organization

The event is made possible through contributions by Bloomberg Beta, Graphistry, the speakers, and their employers.

  • Matt Swann - Intrusion Detection with Graph Analytics
    Microsoft
    Principal Engineering Manager / Senior Security Lead
    @mswannmsft | LI

Abstract: The Office 365 intrusion detection team uses graphs to link alerts and incorporate low-fidelity observations without overwhelming our analysts. In this talk, we will describe how we represent alerts in the graph, how we use the structure of the graph to determine which alerts should be reviewed by our analysts, and how we rank subgraphs to ensure that the most important activity is reviewed first. We will also discuss approaches we will investigate next to get even more value out of our alert graph.

Bio: Matt Swann leads the engineering team focused on defending customer content in OneDrive and SharePoint. A 13-year veteran of the SharePoint team at Microsoft, he is passionate about intrusion detection, incident response, and digital forensics. Outside of work, you can find Matt playing with his kids or hiking in the Cascades.



  • Victor Fang - Graph Mining to Detect the World's 1st Blockchain APT
    AnChain.ai / CEO
    Mandiant/FireEye / Director Data Science
    Awake Security / Founding data scientist
    @vicfcs | LI


Abstract: AnChain.ai recently discovered the first Blockchain APT (BAPT) hacker group in history. Using AnChain.ai's AI powered Situational Awareness Platform (SAP), we found the sophisticated group has been targeting vulnerable DApp smart contracts: Fomo3D, LastWinner, etc. As of Aug 2018, they have stolen ~$4 million Ethereum. AnChain.ai, partnering w/ SECBIT Lab and Graphistry, was able to track down the BAPT hacking tactics. This talk shares how we combine behavior-based machine learning, knowledge graph, bytecode reverse engineering, visual graph investigation, etc.

You will learn more about our quest: “APT is the worst nightmare in Cyber Security. Does Blockchain APT even exist in Blockchain era? What does that mean to all of us?”

Bio:  Dr. Victor Fang is the Founder and CEO of AnChain.ai, AI powered blockchain security, based in San Jose. Before AnChain.ai, he ran the AI initiatives at FireEye Mandiant and was responsible for company's AI product strategic roadmap. Under his leadership, various of ML models have been successfully introduced into millions of endpoints and various services that improves On-Execution dynamic detection and efficiency. He also initiated FireEye's AutoML platform that has delivered hundreds of ML models to network and email security products. He's recognized as the face of FireEye AI. Prior to FireEye, Dr. Fang has 10+ years of ML practice and 5 years of enterprise data science leadership experience at top VC backed startup and Fortune 500 companies.

These ideas received various research awards, including SIGPLAN Best of Year and best papers, and are now in most popular browsers and web frameworks. 


  • Sarah Fender - Building a Virtual Graph Using APIs
    Microsoft / Intelligent Security Graph / Principal Group Program Manager
    PhoneFactor / VP Product & Marketing 

Abstract: The Microsoft Graph Security API offers a new approach to connecting security data from across a customer’s security tools and workflows. It’s not a literal graph database – but that’s by design. In this talk, we’ll introduce the concepts driving the Graph Security API and how you use queries to pivot among related entities using the Microsoft Graph. We’ll walk through real-world examples that you can quickly apply in your own organization.

Bio: Sarah Fender leads product management for the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph. Prior to that, she led security initiatives for Microsoft Azure, including the launch of Azure Security Center. Sarah joined Microsoft following its acquisition of PhoneFactor, where she served as Vice President of Product Management.
