Some industry friends are busy organizing the O’Reilly Security Conference, which will cover everything from how to defend against malware, spear-phishers and DDoS attacks to managing those challenges without sending teams over the edge or breaking the budget.

The New York event starts with training sessions Oct. 30-31 and continues with tutorials and the full-on conference Oct. 31-Nov. 2. The event moves on to Amsterdam with training Nov. 8-9 and the tutorials and conference Nov. 9-11.

Training sessions and talks include:

  • Foundations of Security Data Science with Bob Rudis (Rapid7) and Jay Jacobs (BitSight Technologies): The authors of “Data-Driven Security” will guide attendees on a hands-on and in-depth exploration into the foundations of security data science. In this course, you’ll get the skills to explore and learn from data you probably already have and learn how to approach data analysis and get valuable exposure and experience with tools and techniques to prepare, analyze and visualize the knowledge hiding in your data.
  • Speak Security and Enter: Making Security Make Sense for Non-Technical Users with Jessy Irwin (AgileBits): This talk will show security professionals how to find common ground and truly share security with non-technical users, helping better communicate the mindset behind security.
  • Integrating Security Into DevOps with Ernest Kim (MITRE Corp.): Learn how the MITRE Corporation, a US Federally Funded Research and Development Center, integrated security tools into its DevOps chain to get continuous insight into the security posture of the various Linux distributions it uses and rapidly deploy fixes when needed.
  • MOAR TLS: the Case for HTTPS Everywhere with Emily Schechter (Google): A look at how Google is methodically hunting and tackling major hurdles for TLS adoption to guide the web towards HTTPS everywhere.

In the coming weeks, I’ll focus on specific sessions and interview the players.
