Is your network safe from intruders? Do you know how to find out? Do you know what to do when you learn the truth? In this Webcast Richard Bejtlich, CSO of Mandiant, will describe Network Security Monitoring, a methodology he learned and developed in the Air Force to detect and respond to intruders. His latest book, The Practice of Network Security Monitoring, contains Richard's latest thinking on the subject, as well as an introduction to the premier open source NSM distribution, Security Onion.

Richard will show how NSM can help you implement a security strategy that wins against a variety of intruders, based on fast, comprehensive, and accurate incident detection, response, and containment.
