ISSA-LA July Lunch Meeting

July 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Topic: Disaster Recovery Planning – Diversity in the workplace isn’t just for people
Ken will cover DRP (Disaster Recovery Planning) as seen through his decade of Security Operations Center experience. Topics will include disaster scenarios, how to prepare, and how to respond during a event.

Speaker: Ken Scott
Ken Scott currently holds the position of Systems Engineering Principal in the Network Security department for Salesforce, San Francisco.

In 2006, Ken began his network security career in Prolexic’s DDoS SOC, where he was trained in this emerging field which was on the verge of experiencing a world-wide boom. In 2011 he transitioned to join Verisign’s DDoS Service as a Network Security Engineer protecting many financial institutions. His career path then took him to Apple’s SIRT (Security Incident Response Team), handling events such as botnet infections, account compromises and network vulnerabilities. In 2013, he was asked to join a startup, Defense.net, where he joined an elite team of DDoS professionals as the SOC Manager. When Defense.net was acquired by F5 Networks, he established their SOC IRP (Incident Response Plan) and trained all DDoS SOC engineers, while continuing to mitigate attacks.

In over a decade in SOC operations, Ken has worked some of the largest events and with some of the world’s prominent companies to prepare and work through disaster recovery situations.
