“Advanced Strategies for Defending Against a New Breed of Attacks”
Martin Roesch, Vice President and Chief Architect, Cisco Security Business Group
Thursday, April 23, 2:40 p.m., South, Room: Live at Esplanade
Business leaders are now tasked with protecting their organizations from the effects of catastrophic attacks that cause significant losses in minutes and take months to discover, contain, and remediate. Roesch will outline strategies to evolve security to include new approaches that address incidents efficiently, enable visibility, facilitate appropriate actions, and support business growth.
Martin Roesch is vice president and chief architect for Cisco Security Business Group. Roesch is responsible for shaping the technology strategy and design of the company’s security portfolio and also oversees threat research, including the Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group. He joined Cisco through the acquisition of Sourcefire, which he founded in 2001. A respected authority on intrusion prevention, and detection technology and forensics, Roesch is the author and lead developer of the Snort Intrusion Prevention and Detection System (www.snort.org) that forms the foundation for Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS).
Roesch has received many awards for his innovation and vision. Most recently, he was selected as one of the Top 25 Disrupters of 2013 by CRN Magazine and one of eWeek's Top 100 Most Influential People in IT.

|Panel: “Deconstructing Incident Response”||Moderated by|
Bret Hartman, Vice President and Security CTO, Cisco
|Thursday, April 23, 10:20–11:10 a.m.||Highly visible security breaches have serious consequences for organizations, such as lost revenue and stolen intellectual property.
