About the Session

Cyber deception can be challenging. Rather than simply being a technology that gets deployed, deception is a strategic concept that requires a mindset dissimilar to what IT professionals typically need. Learning deception takes more than learning a technology.

Kevin has co-authored a 6-day training class that covers deception from "soup to nuts". During this presentation, Kevin will provide an overview of his SANS Cyber Deception class. He will also perform demonstrations of the various deceptive techniques using DeceptionLab - a deception platform, using only common Linux commands and utilities.
