SANS Institute today announced it will host the industry's first cyber threat intelligence summit, March 22 in Washington, D.C. The What Works in Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit is a one-of-a-kind knowledge sharing event that brings together some of the industry's top security experts including those who pioneered the notion of using information about ones adversaries to improve an organization's computer network defense.

Cyber threat intelligence means knowing who your adversaries are, understanding what they know, and knowing what to do with this information once you have it. The goal of the summit is to help attendees learn more about the tools, methodologies and processes available so they can move forward and benefit from cyber threat intelligence.

"The stakes associated with a cyber attack are getting higher as our adversaries become increasingly smarter and more aggressive. Threat intelligence can be a force multiplier as organizations look to update their security programs and defenses to deal with increasingly sophisticated advanced persistent threats," said Mike Cloppert, SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence lead and CIRT Chief Research Analyst with Lockheed Martin. "For those who are serious about cyber defense, this is a must attend event and a rare opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in security."

The keynote presentation will be delivered by Greg Rattray, Delta Risk LLC, (retired) 8th U.S. Air Force Colonel who coined the term "APT" and introduced many organizations to this domain. He will be joined by other top security professionals as they share lessons they have learned, including Rick Holland, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, Shane Huntley, the Threat Analysis Group at Google, Aaron Wade, General Electric CIRT, Mike Gordon, the CIRT Senior Manager at Lockheed Martin, Richard Bejtlich, CSO from MANDIANT, Rocky DeStefano, Visible Risk, Adam Meyers, CrowdStrike, and John Ramsey from Dell SecureWorks.

Agenda highlights for the Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit will include:

?The Evolution of Cyber Threats and Cyber Threat Intelligence (keynote address)
?Best Practices in Creating, Delivering, and Utilizing Cyber Threat Intelligence for your Organization
?Building and Operating a Cyber Threat Intelligence Organization
?Creating Threat Intelligence: Tools to Manage and Leverage Active Threat Intelligence
