*The Search for Intelligent Life*
*Synopsis:* For years organizations have been mining and culling data
warehouses to measure every layer of their business right down to the
clickstream information of their web sites. These business intelligence
tools have helped organizations identify points of poor product performance,
highlighting areas of current and potential future demand, key performance
indicators, etc. In the information security field we still tend to look at
our information in silos. Dedicated engineers solely focused on web
application security, network security, compliance and so on, all while
bemoaning a lack of information and decision support.
In this talk, Ed will cover some of the many sources of security data
publicly available and how to apply them to add context to your security
data and tools to help make more intelligent decisions. Ed also points out a
number of ways to repurpose information and tools your company is already
using in order to glean a clearer view into your security and the threats
that may effect it.
*Bio:* Ed Bellis is the CEO of HoneyApps Inc, a vulnerability management
Software as a Service that centralizes, correlates, prioritizes and

workflow. Prior to HoneyApps, Ed served as the Chief Information Security
Officer for Orbitz, the well known online travel agency where he built and
led the information security program and personnel for over 6 years. Ed has
over 18 years experience in information security and technology. He is a
frequent speaker at information security events across North America and
Europe. Past talks have included venues such as IANS Security Forum,

Security by O’Reilly and a blogger on CSO Online.
*Directions:* The building entrance faces the intersection of 34th and

identification and let the guard know they're coming for the OWASP meeting.
