Topic: Attackers Prey on Uncertainty: How to Fail at Threat Detection

It takes a lot of visibility and context to detect and respond to sophisticated threats. Attackers usually target data, where enterprises have the least visibility and most uncertainty. In this session, we’ll explore new, sophisticated threats from inside and out, demonstrate how easy it is for adversaries to bypass traditional controls, and present a methodology to better protect data at scale, improve threat detection, and reduce uncertainty.

Speaker: Courtney Chau, System Engineer at Varonis

Bringing a diverse business and technical skill set, Courtney Chau has had the privilege of working with an elite list of clientele in the Cyber Security & Information Technology sector. Courtney’s commitment to continued learning and academic excellence provided the opportunity for a year of early completion at Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Business Information Technology, summa cum laude, and minor in Applied Business Computing. Courtney embarked on her professional journey in IT Risk Assurance at the multinational professional services network firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), providing superior client relationship management to cultivate efficient and innovative business solutions.

Following this, Courtney served Darktrace as a Cyber Defense Technology Specialist to manage deployments and incident responses, ranging from small business to global firms across a variety of industries.
