Certified Ethical Hacker Eric Knight to Present at ISACA North America and Air Force Systems and Software Technology Conferences

BOULDER, Colo., May 3, 2011 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that senior knowledge engineer and certified ethical hacker Eric Knight will discuss at two leading industry conferences this month methods for using hacking techniques and SIEM technology to discover security risks and exposures. Mr Knight has been invited to speak at ISACA’s North America Computer Audit, Control and Security (North America CACS) Conference and the US Air Force Systems and Software Technology Conference. He will demonstrate how to detect and perform forensic investigations into suspicious activity.

“Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools allow for deep investigation of security events on computer networks, if you know where and what to look for,” said Eric Knight. “They can provide a multi-faceted view of security incidents, including tracing a terminated user’s activities, tracking a malware outbreak and assessing the damage it caused, and dissecting a suspected breach. This is what I will be demonstrating in these hands-on presentations.”

Eric Knight, MIS, CISSP, CISM, CEH, is senior knowledge engineer at LogRhythm. Mr. Knight is responsible for building compliance intelligence packages for regulatory mandates that are shipped as part of LogRhythm’s award-winning SIEM platform.
