First Red Sky Threat Day

We just concluded our first Red Sky Threat Day. What an amazing day. We started with the least interesting presentation of the day (mine!) followed by a discussion on gaining "layered attribution" through malware analysis, and wrapped formal presentations with a discussion on automation-assisted open source intelligence collection and analysis.

The group was small (10 I think?) but it was great. A quick "cyber real estate" inventory of companies participating revealed that the four companies represented by attendees manage approximately a million computers in over 140 countries in the world. Through the Alliance, these members get new information to help them protect their respective enterprises, and those enterprises reach almost every corner of the world!

Last, ever wish you could translate a web page to know what was being said (about you) in a foreign language blog? What if you had the capability to read hundreds of blogs in multiple locations with multiple languages and had the capability to turn that information into actionable, fused reporting that could help protect your network.

Our small group witnessed this new capability yesterday... It's coming to the Red Sky Alliance.

Standby. More to follow.
