Last year, Jake Williams gave this talk at BlueTeamCon to a packed house. Unfortunately, it wasn't recorded and somehow we still haven't fixed that. Well, wait no more folks!

There is no shortage of C-Suite executives that don't understand why there is any need for a Blue Team. After all, isn't the Blue Team "just" cyber defense? Obviously, you know better, but how do you communicate that to the C-Suite? Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. The C-Suite needs to understand value proposition, but they can only do that when we stop talking like a bunch of geeks. We must be business bilingual.

In this webcast, Jake will share his battle-tested methods for explaining Blue Team topics to executives. Whether you need to explain why you need that new EDR or justify more retention for the SIEM, this talk is for you.

Jacob Williams
Executive Director of Cyber Threat Intelligence, SCYTHE

Infosec professional. Breaker of poorly written software. Incident responder. Digital defender. Business bilingual. I treat infosec like the Hippocratic Oath: First do no harm.

I help business create secure environments that actually function by addressing realistic risk. I help penetration test organizations so they can find the weak spots before an attacker does. When an attacker does find a weak spot first, I work with them to remove the attacker, assess the damage, and remediate the vulnerabilities that allowed the attacker access in the first place.

I'm a prolific conference speaker, an instructor, and an infosec mentor.
