The chapter held its 31st annual golf

turnout was excellent. Col. David Blanks,

(AFRL’s) liaison to Air Force Space Command and the Air Force Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP),
provided a briefing on AFRL’s organization,
plans and priorities.
Would You Know
If You Were Hacked?
At a chapter meeting in November, Light
Cyber’s Jason Matlof showed attendees how
machine learning and automated baseline
analysis discover the behavior that attackers use after they compromise a network. It
is better to find out sooner rather than later
that hacking has occurred, but that usually is not the case. According to Stephanie
Balaouras of Forrester Research, it takes
an average of 200 days before an organization knows it has been hacked, and when
it does, chances are this happens when law
enforcement shows up on the doorstep.
SILICON VALLEY—At a November
meeting, guest speaker Jason Matlof,
Light Cyber, explains to chapter
members why looking for malware after
a network is hacked is a wasted effort.
SILICON VALLEY—Matlof discusses
at the November event how traditional
security tools look for signatures, but if
the malware is new, they might be missed.
