Hunting attackers with network audit trails

01 May 2014, 12:00 - 12:25

Technical Theatre


Sophisticated, targeted attacks have become increasingly difficult to detect and analyse. In order to detect breaches more effectively, organisations must look beyond the perimeter and understand what is going on inside their networks. This session will demonstrate how network logging technologies such as NetFlow and IPFIX can be used to detect advanced attacks inside the network, dramatically improving forensic investigations and incident response. 

  • Understand why sophisticated attackers are able to subvert perimeter network defences
  • Discover how standard network logging technologies such as NetFlow and IPFIX work and how to enable them on popular networking equipment
  • Be aware of open source and commercial NetFlow collection solutions and how to use them to analyse network traffic
  • Understand how to discover and investigate attacks within network audit trails
  • Find out how to apply threat intelligence gleaned from incident investigations to protect an organization against future attacks
