Media Alert: Farsight Security CTO Ben April To Keynote Security B-Sides MSP 2019

Seattle, Washington, UNITED STATES

SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Farsight Security Chief Technology Officer Ben April will deliver keynote, “Reflections on Subjective Reputation,” on Thursday, September 26th, 2019 at the Security B-Sides MSP 2019 (#BSidesMSP) event in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Subjective reputation is a staple of the security industry. Lists of “good” or “bad” indicators are the fuel behind many defensive strategies. The more advanced tools such as machine-learning, deep-learning, and artificial intelligence are often leveraged to add or remove indicators from these reputation lists. Differing expectations and use cases can result in wild variations in efficacy and value of a reputation source. This keynote presentation will look at subjective reputation, the challenging environments where it is created, and look at alternative approaches worth considering.

Farsight Security is also a sponsor for Security B-Sides MSP 2019, where it will demonstrate its latest real-time and historical DNS Intelligence solutions and how security professionals at Fortune 500 corporations and government agencies around the world are using these tools for their investigations.
