Aaron Turner

IANS Faculty

Aaron Turner is a multi-decade veteran of the InfoSec community with significant experience in the fields of identity and access management, mobile device security, embedded system vulnerabilities, IoT security and international cybersecurity risk management. Starting as an independent penetration tester in the early 1990's, he went on to work at Microsoft in the days before the company had formal security teams. During the massive worm attacks of the early 2000's, Aaron helped found many of the Microsoft Security teams, start security programs and eventually was responsible for all interactions between Microsoft and its customers' CISOs. In 2006, he was invited to participate in a new research project at the Idaho National Lab, funded by DHS, DOE and DOD, to investigate how the system vulnerabilities in commodity software and hardware impact critical infrastructure such as the national power grid, cellular communications networks and other utilities. While at INL, Aaron co-invented a contactless payment technology which he later spun-out of the INL in 2008 as a venture-backed company called RFinity, with that technology eventually licensed on to others. In 2010, Aaron founded IntegriCell to focus on cellular network vulnerability research and established a management consulting practice that delivered unique vulnerability intelligence to customers. Aaron founded Terreo in 2014 as an Internet of Things security product development company, and patented a series of inventions which captured radio frequency transmissions from IoT devices. In 2015, Verifone acquired Terreo and made Aaron the VP of Security Products R&D with a focus of applying the Terreo technologies to helping manage the risks posed by credit card skimmers. In 2017, he left Verifone and refocused his efforts on his IntegriCell research, specifically around applying Machine Learning to the massive data sets created by mobile and IoT devices. Aaron has testified before congress to help set policy for US critical infrastructure protection.

Lunch & Sponsor Keynote: Why Firewalls Are Not Enough for Stopping Cyber Threats

with Chris Deardruff Cyber threats are jumping from network to network, nation to nation and wreaking havoc because organizations are attaching billions of insecure devices to the internet. Firewalls cannot protect these devices from lateral movement and all of the new attack vectors. So organizations are increasing risk and wasting money adding more firewalls internally, adding more trained people and more manual processes to plug holes then telling their customers to patch. Adapting 90s era network security to fix the flaws of TCP/IP in the digital era is a doomed approach.

  • How can a company create a more deliberate process to determine when containers are necessary?
  • What is some specific automation or orchestration tools? (Docker Swarm, Kubernates)
  • How does one optimize such tools as AppArmor and SELinuxbecause to prevents a misconfiguration or bug at the container daemon level?
  • What is Docker Notary and how can it add a layer of trust?
  • What are some of the more recent attacks to exploit unsecured containers?

How to Fill SIEM Gaps with UEBA/SOAR

with Dave Kennedy

Organizations want their SIEM to alert them in real time, but that’s not happening. Instead, their SIEM only helps determine how a breach occurred after the fact. Practitioners have heard that UEBA and SOAR can be used to overcome the limits of their current SIEM set up, but they seek concrete answers about how it all works and what kind of training and investments are required. In this session, attendees will learn:

  • The specific actions they must take in order to fully understand where their SIEM is hitting the wall
  • A list of ways to tell if their MSSP is properly goaled/resourced/qualified to correlate and alert in real time
  • A clearer understanding of the small and well-defined situations AI/ML is best suited for

Starting as an independent penetration tester in the early 1990's, he went on to work at Microsoft in the days before the company had formal security teams. During the massive worm attacks of the early 2000's, Aaron helped found many of the Microsoft Security teams, start security programs and eventually was responsible for all interactions between Microsoft and its customers' CISOs. In 2006, he was invited to participate in a new research project at the Idaho National Lab, funded by DHS, DOE and DOD, to investigate how the system vulnerabilities in commodity software and hardware impact critical infrastructure such as the national power grid, cellular communications networks and other utilities. While at INL, Aaron co-invented a contactless payment technology which he later spun-out of the INL in 2008 as a venture-backed company called RFinity, with that technology eventually licensed on to others. In 2010, Aaron founded IntegriCell to focus on cellular network vulnerability research and established a management consulting practice that delivered unique vulnerability intelligence to customers. Aaron founded Terreo in 2014 as an Internet of Things security product development company, and patented a series of inventions which captured radio frequency transmissions from IoT devices. In 2015, Verifone acquired Terreo and made Aaron the VP of Security Products R&D with a focus of applying the Terreo technologies to helping manage the risks posed by credit card skimmers. In 2017, he left Verifone and refocused his efforts on his IntegriCell research, specifically around applying Machine Learning to the massive data sets created by mobile and IoT devices.

Protect Applications and Data

Prioritizing Privilege Management

with Aaron Turner

As IT infrastructure gets more complex and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) becomes a reality, one of the few controls we have left is privileged user management (PUM). But it’s difficult to get it right. To advance in the right direction, this session will explore:

  • How to link privileged access management to change management
  • How to identify what is happening with the use of these credentials
  • How to Identify the appropriate tools to use for privileged access management
  • How to handle insider threats related to privilege abuse/misuse
