He has applied his experience to high tech criminology and securing data networks and has served as a consulting liaison for both local and federal law enforcement investigations.

Prior to joining Nuix, where he is responsible for all field operations for Nuix Insight Adaptive Security, Joe was with HBGary/ManTech as Senior Director of Investigations. He also spent time at Guidance Software, where he was manager of Solutions Consulting, Network Associates’ Expert Services division, and IBM Global Professional Services. In these positions, Joe was involved in the investigation of enterprise corporate and government incidents, analysis of advanced system compromise techniques, and the development and project management of enterprise risk mitigation infrastructures.

He has performed many Emergency Response and Investigation engagements in the critical infrastructure & protection (CIP) space, including healthcare, telecommunications, energy, financial, government, and manufacturing sectors.

Joe’s specialty is analyzing, securing, and investigating local and wide area networks, and investigating the impact to the target system.

Presentation Title: Security Automation and Integration: Is the “Security Frankenstein” Putting You at Risk?

Presentation Description:

The solution workflow of today’s Security Operations Center (SOC) can be described as a “Security Frankenstein”—where each “limb” is a disparate solution that has been cobbled together in hopes of streamlining the steps in the security kill chain. The result is an ineffective, costly, and cumbersome approach to the security workflow that increases risk and creates unnecessary workload. There is a better way.

In this session, Joe Riggins, Senior Director of Security & Intelligence Field Operations at Nuix, will discuss how an adaptive security approach to the SOC workflow delivers an integrated, context-aware, network and endpoint security solution for threat prevention, detection, and response that continuously monitors all layers of the IT stack. Attendees will learn how this approach:

– Closes the feedback loop between sensing, filtering, detecting, and disrupting earlier in the kill chain
– Leverages context-aware intelligence to deliver advanced protection
– Helps reduce the attack surface and lowers risk
– Gives you back control of your enterprise and the data that resides on endpoints
