    Interview: Mark Orlando, Bionic Cyber

    Mark Orlando is the Founder & CEO at Bionic Cyber

    Mark started his security career in 2001 as a Security Analyst, and since then has built, assessed, and managed security teams at the Pentagon, the White House, the Department of Energy, global Managed Security Service Providers, and numerous financial sector and Fortune 500 clients. Mark is constantly working on new projects to improve defensive security through automation and other short cut-y things so defenders can be more agile and creative. Today he is the CEO of Bionic, a company he co-founded to bring advanced "1%" secops capabilities to the 99%, and is an instructor for SANS SEC450: Blue Team Fundamentals.

    Segment Topic:
    Outdated defense approaches and the need to revisit traditional thinking about security operations in the enterprise

    Segment Description:
    In today’s talent and budget-constrained environment, many organizations can’t afford a 24/7 security operations team to defend their enterprise. Even equipped with a SOC, defenders struggle mightily with bias, alert fatigue, turnover, and other issues that result in waste and inefficiency. We have to revisit the notion that "good security" means a bolted-on monitoring team and unsustainable investments in point products.

    Segment Resources:, which includes a link to our Github site where we post various tools and other resources for defenders. I also want to encourage people to check out SANS' growing blue team curriculum, specifically SEC450 for newer SOC analysts, since I think it addresses many of the things about SOC work we need to change.

    Interview: Ward Cobleigh, VIAVI

    Ward Cobleigh
    is the Product Line Manager for VIAVI.

    Ward Cobleigh, Sr Product Manager for VIAVI Solutions, understands the balancing act between network ops and security that IT pros are facing today along with the challenges they have in solving issues due to limited visibility and complexity. His experience in engineering, product management plus design and marketing give him a unique ability to cut to the heart of the problem and demonstrate solutions that give engineers a sigh of relief. He brings a refreshing bit of humor to the dry, technical topic of network performance management and security threat hunting.
