Who:  Danny Pickens is director of threat intelligence for Optiv. He oversees the company’s cyber threat intelligence team, which conducts research and analysis to provide clients strategic advisement and consulting in the area of intelligence for business alignment and decision advantage.


What:  Pickens’ SecTor 2016 session, “Rethinking Threat Intelligence,” will discuss how the term “threat intelligence” has become heavily diluted and attached to a very diverse array of products, services and capabilities that are not easily adopted across the various enterprise security use cases. Pickens will explain why solving the challenge includes understanding that intelligence is the connective tissue between knowing your enemy and enacting security strategy that enables decision advantage to significantly reduce risk to the business.

Where:  Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 222 Bremner Boulevard, Ontario
