R.C. Smith “The Insider Threat (an Update…)”
RC will be presenting updates to two important topics, “You’ve Got Mail” and “Technical Vulneravilities to Travelers.”

You’ve Got Mail
This discussion includes Solicitation, SPAM, Phishing, and Whaling

It’s all just worthless email right? “Maybe–Maybe not. The more sophisticated the attacker, the more likely the email will be tailor-made for you to compromise you or your company. We will examine the entire evolution of a fictitious attack and detail the awareness level necessary by each employee as the attack evolves.”

Technical Vulnerabilities to Travelers
This presentation includes a collection of videos originally created by the National Counterintelligence Executive (NCIX) and is specifically focused on the vulnerabilities created by the technology used by our business travelers and a lack of awareness.

About the Presenter
Mr. R.C. Smith currently supports the Lockheed Martin Director of Security for Defense and Intelligence Systems specifically in the areas of Counterintelligence and International Security. Mr. Smith has supported Lockheed Martin for sixteen years in the areas of Counterintelligence, International Security, Information Security, Physical Security and Classification Management. Mr. Smith also serves on the Board of Directors of the Maryland InfraGard, is the Chairperson for the Insider Threat Special Interest Group (SIG) and supports the InfraGard Sector Chief program. Mr. Smith served 21 years in the United States Marine Corps.

Rober Mueck – Threat Assessment and Collaboration
This presentation involves a case study of an actual incident resolved by the University of Maryland Police with the FBI. This case demonstrates the need to assess behavior beyond just that of the local organization. It includes information on how University Police conducted their assessment, how the FBI got involved, and how the incident was resolved in the end.

About the Presenter
Robert Mueck is the Training Coordinator for the George Washington University and the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. There Bob coordinates police academy training for the universities in Washington DC, as well as other training programs as needed.

Bob retired as a Captain after 29 years at the University of Maryland Police in College Park and last served as Emergency Manager and as the Training Academy Director. At UMPD, Bob was instrumental in the creation of their Threat Assessment Program, and also served as the Police representative for the University’s Behavior Evaluation and Threat Assessment (BETA) team.

Securing Your Intellectual Property
Like common criminals, sophisticated attackers use whatever tools they have available to complete their tasks. Once they enter your network, they still need to move laterally to accomplish their mission, whether that is to steal intellectual property or disrupt business continuity. During this presentation, we will examine how criminals use Microsoft Windows’ Scheduled Tasks to move laterally within a corporate network to harvest credentials, compromise hosts and exfiltrate intellectual property.
