              On December 9, 2021, a remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in Apache log4j 2 was identified as being exploited in the wild. Public proof of concept code was released and subsequent investigation revealed that exploitation was incredibly easy to perform. By submitting a specially crafted request to a vulnerable system, an attacker is able to instruct that system to download and execute a malicious payload. Since the discovery of this exploit is so recent, there are still many servers that have yet to be patched. Like many high-severity RCE exploits, massive scanning activity for this issue has begun on the internet... Read More

                  Over the past 20 plus years Information Security, Information Assurance and now Cyber Security have increasingly become an exercise in managing risk to the point of almost abandoning mitigating vulnerabilities. Relying organizations & consulting professionals have focused on using legacy techniques & stacking redundant symmetric authentication factors to avoid meaningful change. Security by obscurity, that has failed in the past, has once again become good enough to satisfy risk management objectives. The result is that we continue to conduct business online without confidence that the online credentials being used are accurately associated with a specific entity. We still offer little...

                        For decades now, we have seen data analytics become a core skill for IT and security professionals. Almost 30 years ago, database and web analytics became hot job roles. Over the last ten years, security analysts have applied data principles to address security, privacy and governance concerns. The trend continues: Data analytics is not just a niche skill; it has become a mainstream competency for the security workforce. More work roles are required to create context, better communicate vital business intelligence, and implement essential security architectures.

                              Due to a variety of factors, the Army has struggled to meet its recruiting goals in recent years. The Department of Defense estimates that just 2% out of 20.6 million Americans between the ages of 17 and 21 have the necessary combination of academic credentials, clean background, adequate physical fitness, and interest in serving. This recruitment challenge is especially acute in cybersecurity, as there are over 300,000 unfilled positions in the United States, most offering compensation packages well into the six figures. These two facts create a problem for the Army Cyber Command: how do you identify and then actuate a... Read More

                                                    In today's world, the internet is inescapable. It touches almost every part of modern life and has brought with it unimaginable improvements, alongside commensurate threats. Dramatic increases in the scale and diversity of information flows, combined with the difficulty of ensuring the veracity of information and an informed public, has led to mass propagation of narratives often reliant on disinformation as a means of influence. This influence has become a critical threat to US national security, public policy, and the US's standing in the world. The US must intensively develop and refine its Information Warfare capabilities in countering adversarial influence operations.... Read More

                                                      The importance of this panel cannot be overstated. In the changing world of “As a Service” support for the Department of Defense and Joint Forces components, industry leaders have many of the same challenges as does our Armed Forces. This panel will discuss what companies are doing to recruit, train, and retain their workforce, but also how they are supporting and protecting the security and Cyber threats of each of their “client” companies which extends to the Joint Military Workforce.

                                                        The DoD is seeking a demonstrable solution that ensures institutional training remains challenging, current, and relevant. For your consideration we contend that Point3's ESCALATE product does this, and we are happy to help the CCoE address these challenges. (1) ESCALATE ensures institutional training is challenging. One of the most pervasive problems we hear from the DoD community is how hard it is to find a training offering suited all individuals in a unit. Senior personnel are bored by repeatedly taking intro level training, yet those new to the field are immediately lost and frustrated in advanced offerings. ESCALATE poses a rich... Read More
