Two-Factor Authentication: A Primer
As the focus of criminals continues to shift further towards the end-user, the need for strong authentication security is becoming more of a requirement and less of a nice-to-have. Whether due to HIPAA/HITECH or just industry pressure, two-factor authentication is quickly becoming a phrase in every technology professional's lexicon.
This presentation will go over many of the building blocks of two-factor authentication, including a look at the history, technologies, and standards that are crucial to know for understanding the state of this security control. Is your organization currently looking to add two-factor or thinking about replacing your existing solution? This presentation will help provide the knowledge you'll need to make an informed decision about the initiatives in your future for strong authentication.

Presenter: Josh Little
A Cascade of Pebbles: How Small Incident Response Mistakes Make for Big Compromises
This talk will center on the success of a penetration test that was largely due to gaps in the target company's incident response process. Numerous small mistakes combined to create a perfect storm of compromise and data exfiltration. The focus of the presentation will highlight how the incident response short-comings allowed the attacker to stay weeks, days, hours and minutes ahead of the responders.
Josh Little has over 14 years of experience within the realm of information security and IT operations, with a diverse technology and testing background that includes application programming, network penetration testing, network engineering, system monitoring, and web application security. Josh is active in the Michigan security community as a member of #misec and chapter leader for the Metro Detroit OWASP chapter. Josh took a rather unconventional path into IT, holding a degree in Philosophy and Medieval History from Western Michigan University. In his spare time he enjoys resurrecting medieval swordsmanship, amateur blacksmithing, and spending time with his wife a daughter.
