Incident Response case studies: Reality vs Security Theatre

Tuesday September 17, 2019, 9:30-11:00

Kieren Niĉolas Lovell

security expert
University of Cambridge
Tallinn University of Technology

Kieren Nicolas Lovell is a security expert from the University of Cambridge (King’s and Pembroke College), Tallinn University of Technology, and SpectX, a log analysis cyber security tool. Previously, he has been the Head of CamCERT & the CISO at Standing NATO Maritime Group One, which was deployed for nine months in mitigating the pirate threat.
Radio Interview with Kieren Lovell
Kieren Lovell – TED talk

A presentation on real case studies where real incidents occurred, and in how our traditional security practices with our reliance on IPS and Firewalls did not help, and how we need to adapt this within our security posture if we really want to provide actual security, rather than just security theatre.

I will show live examples of compromises that have happened, at Cambridge, Military, using OSINT, SocEng, and directed targeted attacks are what we are looking out for. More and more we can see that the “needle in the haystack” is the incident you should really be worried about.
In showing examples of how you need to change the mindset to log collection, processing, and analytics rather than relying on the approach of old which is “magic box security”, we will cover how you actually need to know what you have on your network, what is your “normal” traffic, and how you can stop changes and instructions that are heavily targeted and increasingly complex. We will cover how you actually need to know what you have on your network, what is your “normal” traffic, and how you can stop changes and instructions that are heavily targeted and increasingly complex. Network traffic is often encrypted and not so informative, the real security-related juice can be found from application logs. You have the data, but do you know the information it contains?

There is no intelligence in Artificial Intelligence (yet)

Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 16:10-17:10

Prof. Aaro Toomela

Tallinn University

Aaro Toomela is a Professor of Cultural and Neuropsychology at the Tallinn University, Estonia. His research interests cover all the main fields of psychology—cognitive, developmental, cultural, social, personality, biological, evolutionary, and applied—as well as philosophy, history and methodology of psychology. He has authored scientific papers in all these fields.

In this presentation, first, Anokhin’s theory of life is shortly described. This theory is taken as a ground to build a theory of psyche, a special way a being relates to its environment. Qualitative differences in the ways physical bodies, living creatures, psychical beings, and finally humans relate to the world are discussed. A definition of intelligence as a psychical relation of an organism to its world is put forward.

Remote Tower for ATM - Possibilities and Challenges

Wednesday September 18, 2019, 09:30-11:00

Dr.Ing. Meelis Nõmm

Surveillance Systems Department, Cybernetica

Meelis Nõmm was born in Kuressaare. His Bachelor Degree in Computer and Systems Engineering is from Tallinn University of Technology. Master Studies in digital communications took him to Kiel University (CAU) where in 2015 he received a Ph.D. for thesis in Information Technology and Signal Processing. Since 2015 has been a member of Surveillance Systems team at Cybernetica. Topics of interest positioning and scanning radio signals, remote tower for air traffic management.

Remote control has been a thing since 1950s, when a device was created to control the TV remotely. Digitilization is making its way to various fields and applications. The same digitalization has found its way to air traffic management (ATM). The desire to optimize usage of high qualification personel and the advancement of technology, has paved way to projects to provide air traffic services remotely using digitalized "out of the window view", captured with cameras and presented on high quality screens. But with every new technology come possibilities and challenges.

Meaningful Human Control of Unmanned Ground Vehicles

Prof. Mart Noorma

Science and Development Director, Milrem Robotics
part-time Professor of Space and Defense Technology, University of Tartu

Prof. Mart Noorma is leading strategic research cooperation to develop unmanned ground vehicles for civilian and defense applications. His dream is to operate a robotic vehicle on Moon or Mars.
