Cyber Making Headlines in the Tennessee Valley

  • Wednesday, April 13, 2022 12:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

    April 13, 2022 - Representatives from Cyber Huntsville supported a cybersecurity panel discussion for a Kyrgyzstan Cyber Delegation visiting Alabama. Global Ties Alabama brings leaders from across the world to Alabama to showcase and exchange ideas on key topics.  The Kyrgyzstan delegation was part of a US State Department sponsored program to support emerging democracies by promoting cybersecurity. There was much discussion on how Cyber Huntsville was formed, our successful sponsorship of projects such as US Cyber Camp and the National Cyber Summit, and how we’ve grown to a successful organization. Perhaps we planted a seed of an idea that could grow into a Cyber Kyrgyzstan organization modeled after Cyber Huntsville. Pictured is the Kyrgyzstan delegation along with Cyber Huntsville Board Members Larry Burger, Chris Patty, Nisheeth Agrawal, and Brandon Umphrey.

    Virtual Meeting Highlights

    ·       The 2022 Spring Meeting kicks off on April 26, 2022, with an overview by Nitin Natarajan, Deputy Director of CISA, covering current CISA initiatives to collaborate with our private partners in “Public & Private Partnerships in ICS – A Unified Effort.” The day then continues with an agenda filled with informative presentations.

    ·       A ‘Capture the Flag’ activity is available from Saturday, April 23, starting at 10 a.m., through noon on Wednesday, April 27. The CTF exposes analysts to hunting across ICS networks for malicious behavior, with puzzles appropriate for both the beginner and the experienced analyst. Challenges include artifacts generated from IT/OT host forensic data, network data (from both Bro logs and PCAP), and OT equipment actively being exploited by a threat actor. The CTF will be accessible remotely across the internet. Some of the gamesrequire a computer that can run common cyber analytical tools such as Wireshark.You can register for the CTF at ICSJWGCTF.com starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 23, 2022.

    ·       The CISA ICS Training updated overview will be provided on April 27. The Cyber-CHAMP© model has been created to help both IT and OT practitioners by synthesizing industry standards such as the NICE NIST Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. Specifically, the model is built to be applied at the practitioner level, accounts for any role in an organization, and can be deployed by any size or type of organization.

    ·       The Technical Workshop returns on April 27 with presentation topics, including Case Studies of Cyber Attack Precursors in the OT Environment, Ransomware Considerations for OT Environments, and ATT&CK in the CELR.

     

    All webcasts will be recorded for on-demand viewing and review, provided the presenter has released the material for on-demand viewing.

    The rising geopolitical tensions in Eastern Europe have prompted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency to issue a “shields up” advisory (www.cisa.gov/shields-up). The defense industrial base is one of 16 official U.S. critical infrastructure sectors. Via a Defense Department communication received this morning, we encourage you to do three things.

    1. Heed the advisory.
    2. Report Cyber Incidents. DFARS 252.204-7012 stipulates a contractor’s requirement to rapidly report cyber incidents impacting Covered Defense Information (CDI) and/or the ability to perform operationally critical support within 72 hours of discovery to https://dibnet.dod.mil. For questions or more information, contact DCISE (DC3.DCISE@us.af.mil or call the 24/7 Hotline at 1-877-838-2174).
    3. Get Assistance and Partner. These three organizations can assist you.
      • DoD Cyber Crime Center’s (DC3) DoD- Defense Industrial Base Collaboration Information Sharing Environment (DCISE) – www.dc3.milDC3.DCISE@us.af.mil; 24/7 Hotline – 1-877-838-2174
      • National Security Agency’s Cybersecurity Collaboration Center (CCC) – https://www.nsa.gov/About/Cybersecurity-Collaboration-Center
      • National Defense Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ND-ISAC) – ND-ISAC is the official ISAC for the DIB Critical Infrastructure Sector recognized by DoD and DHS. The ND-ISAC is a private sector self-organized and self-governing entity; it is a trusted partner providing exceptional technical solutions and support to its members. Please email Info@NDISAC.org to contact the team or see ND-ISAC’s public-facing website at www.ndisac.org.

    NAC-ISSA’s May lunch will be held live on Thursday, May 20, at 11:30AM.  We will return to 655 Discovery Drive with Walton’s Southern Table catering.  For this event, our sponsor will be virtual but you can join your peers for food and networking as we hear about Arista’s Awake security solution in the 655 Discovery auditorium.  Thank you to i3 and Allen Cloar for being our host at the facility.

    Awake Security is the only advanced network detection and response solution that delivers answers, not alerts.  In the demo of Awake’s AI-driven platform we will showcase the capabilities with a demonstration of the key use cases and workflows designed to help customers speed up detection, response and remediation.

    Join this session to learn:

    How Awake delivers correlated, autonomous threat detection and visibility with the greatest accuracy and lowest false positive rates.

    How Awake’s Ava, the world’s first AI-powered security analyst, performs autonomous threat hunting for complex threats.

    How Awake optimizes the detection to response workflow while providing you with the ability to customize detection and hunting through Awake’s unique Adversarial Modeling Language.

    This event will be hosted both virtually and face to face.  There are two links on the calendar so you can sign up for whichever feels right for you.

    Click here for the virtual link.

    Click here for the face-to-face link
