Attacker Ghost Stories: Mostly Free Defenses That Give Attackers Nightmares

Presented at ShmooCon X (2014), Jan. 17, 2014, 3:30 p.m. (30 minutes)

This talk is about protections, mitigations, or detection mechanisms that I've seen across businesses big and small that were innovative and highly effective, yet free (or mostly free) and stopped me (as an attacker) dead in my tracks.

We will be going over 11 (or a many as we can get to) methods, tactics, and software setups that will cut down intrusions significantly. Changes that you can deploy or start deployment of the hour after the talk is done.
