2020 Phoenix Symposium
Using AI/ML to Make Security Controls More Effective

#IANSPhoenix #IANSEvents

Thursday, February 20, 2020 | 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Courtyard by Marriott Scottsdale Old Town, Phoenix, AZ

AI/ML technology can help security teams make more accurate decisions, but it only works when you feed the right data into the machines.

This symposium will give practitioners step-by-step guidance on how to do that properly. The agenda includes:

  • Reviewing the five domains data comes from (network/traffic flows, infrastructure/servers, databases, applications, and IAM/people)
  • How to capture the right data from those domains
  • Modeling privileged users on Windows and Linux machines
  • Database change detection via ML
  • A look at the DARPA model
  • Different techniques of ML


Technical CISOs, Security Ops, Security practitioners from more mature/ advanced environments

This event is for IANS clients and invited guests — there is no vendor sponsorship or presence.

2020 Phoenix Symposium Facilitators

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. He holds a B.A. in Spanish Linguistics from B.Y.U. and attended the SMU School of Law. Outside of work Aaron enjoys culinary arts, travel with his wife and 3 daughters, and rebuilding vintage VW buses.
