Recon for the Defender: You Know Nothing (about Your Assets), Jon Snow

Understanding what you own is step one in securing your assets. A simple concept that still escapes the grasp of most, and it’s getting harder in a cloud-enabled world. Despite this struggle there’s a plethora of APIs and publicly available data to give you a jumpstart on identifying high-risk assets. This session will share techniques and tools to gather data and identify unknown risks.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn about sources and methods to identify public, unknown assets.
2: Gain access to OSS tooling allowing defenders to operationalize asset inventory process.
3: Learn to apply risk methods using public data attributes to understand quantitative risk.
