SecDSM, a monthly meetup providing the opportunity to network with other InfoSec pros and listen to short tech talks presented by your fellow members (or give a presentation yourself!) while enjoying some beer/drinks/food. No sales pitches. The idea is to provide you actionable knowledge for you to take back to your $dayjob while building a top tier InfoSec community in the Des Moines area. If you have the desire to learn about real world InfoSec scenarios - get out of your comfort zone - and join us in a relaxed vendor neutral environment. No registration is required.

Schedule

We meet monthly, on the 2nd Wednesday starting at 6pm at The Basement Bar at the Des Moines Social Club in Downtown Des Moines.

Session Title: Malware Analysis for Incident Response

Short Description: There are a lot of different incident scenarios that companies are faced with. While malware isn't involved in all of them it can pose a significant threat. The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report cites malware as being involved in 28 percent of breaches. Having even basic malware analysis capabilities can bolster your SOC and improve the effectiveness of your incident response.
