Don’t Miss Synack at RSA 2016!

Derek Athy

The RSA Conference returns to San Francisco next week, populating Synack’s backyard with some of the most talented and influential cybersecurity minds in the world. In this week-long event filled with presentations, demos, and special events, Synack will be educating and addressing conference attendees on the ever-growing concerns in the realm of information security, and hosting top security professionals over discussions on how our innovative Crowd Security Intelligence model is dynamically changing the way global enterprises are approaching security. The switch from reactive to proactive security must continue.

Synack’s team is privileged to be presenting on four separate occasions throughout the week on key security topics such as: growing Apple OS X security issues, demise within the “Internet of Things” (IoT), and an intriguing “doomsday-esque” scenario surrounding critical infrastructure vulnerabilities.

Patrick Wardle, Synack Director of R&D
Let’s Play Doctor: Practical OS X Malware Detection and Analysis
Wednesday, March 2nd
9:10 AM – 10:00 AM | West | Room: 3009

“I think my Mac has a virus”…now what? When a Windows PC gets infected there are established diagnostic procedures to uncover and analyze the malware. Not so, on OS X. Patrick’s talk will discuss OS X-specific tools and techniques that can uncover infections, as well as secrets of Mac malware. Come watch Patrick dissect recent samples of OS X malware, and learn how new tools built by Patrick himself can lead to proficient OS X malware analysis!

Patrick Wardle, Synack Director of R&D
Let’s Play Doctor: Practical OS X Malware Detection and Analysis (Focus-On)
Wednesday, March 2nd
2:10 PM – 3:00 PM | West | Room: 2016

Patrick is a renowned Apple security expert and frequent speaker at leading security conferences; Q&A sessions often don’t serve his presentations justice in both time and content. RSA “Focus-On” Sessions are reserved for the conference’s “most popular speakers” – allotting time for Patrick to build-upon conversations from his talk earlier in the day. Don’t miss this highly interactive and engaging opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into the world of OS X malware detection and analysis!

Jay Kaplan, Synack CEO
Julia Yrani, Synack Strategic Alliances Lead
Critical Infrastructure Fails: Are We Doomed?
Wednesday, March 2
11:30 AM – 12:20 PM | West | Room: 3014

Are our “crown-jewel” critical infrastructure systems already compromised? What if they do fail? We’ve heard the horror stories – now catch this captivating presentation as Jay and Julia examine perspectives (read: shocking weaknesses) in the present and future states of critical infrastructure security in creating an all-too-real doomsday-esque scenario.

Oren Yomtov, Synack Security Researcher/Engineer
Our Brave New Connected World: Is It Already Too Late?
Thursday, March 3
2:10 PM – 3:00 PM | West | Room: 3014

The IoT device market is rapidly expanding, but easily hackable – security isn’t always top-of-mind for manufacturers. In this somewhat unnerving demonstration, Oren asks “How have our children’s toys become the new gateway to havoc?” Come watch and listen as Oren details the common mistakes in securing smart toys and connected IoT devices, and how to design them right in the first place.

For those of you attending, we look forward to seeing you there! For those who unfortunately cannot attend, we’ve got your back; be on the lookout for webinars covering Synack’s RSA presentations in the weeks to come.
