Endgame CEO Nate Fick to Deliver Keynote at 2016 Infiltrate Conference
March 24, 2015 – Arlington, VA – Endgame, Inc., a leading provider of cybersecurity software solutions to help enterprises hunt, contain, and evict the most sophisticated adversaries, announced today that CEO Nate Fick will keynote the 2016 Infiltrate Conference in Miami Beach, Florida on April 7, 2016. Infiltrate is a deep technical conference that focuses entirely on offense-based cybersecurity issues, including computer and network exploitation, vulnerability discovery, and rootkit and trojan covert protocols.
“Nate's time in the Marines and at the forefront of cyber defense is unique in the industry, and we're excited to have his talk as the keynote of our conference," said Dave Aitel, CEO of Immunity Inc. and founder of Infiltrate.
The keynote will focus on lessons from military combat that are applicable to the digital domain. As a unit commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, Nate Fick was forced to adapt quickly to the challenges of contemporary warfare – from the paradoxes of counterinsurgency, to the hard-power realities of escalation dominance and deterrence, to the ethics of just war and the ongoing competition for talent. Today, computer security is at a similar inflection point – an industry in which billions of dollars were spent last year, yet 90% of large enterprises are breached, with adversary dwell times averaging 200+ days. Nate’s speech will highlight how lessons from the battlefield can empower the security industry to take an offense-based approach to navigating the current threatscape.
Endgame’s offense-based approach to automate the hunt for adversaries derives from its heritage running the largest cyber operations in the world with the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. Its research has revealed a distinct gap in organizations’ abilities to proactively hunt for cyber threats and risks. The traditional security stack, such as antivirus, network IDSes, and firewalls, are no longer sufficient to catch today’s advanced threats – leaving enterprises vulnerable to breaches that bypass perimeter defenses.
