David Fernandez, PLXsert

Mr. Fernandez has over a decade of experience in information security. He began his career in the Networking Security Operations and Engineering division for a Microsoft partner, specializing in IP faxing solutions. In 2006, he started working as a Security Engineer for a firm that develops security devices that mitigate against illegal content distribution from P2P networks. In 2008, he joined Prolexic as a Lead Security Operations Engineer, working as part of the operational DDoS mitigation team, and specializing in the identification and mitigation of the largest and most sophisticated DDoS attacks in the world. As one of the founding members, he currently leads the Security Engineering and Response Team (PLXSERT), the team's responsibilities include security research, digital forensics, cyber-threat research and evolving DDoS mitigation techniques.

Terrence Gareau, PLXsert

Terrence “Tuna” Gareau, Principal Security Architect and the founding member of the PLXsert for Prolexic Technologies, began his IT security career more than 10 years ago. His experience encompasses enterprise security in addition to distributed denial of services (DDoS) expertise, and he has mitigated some of the Internet’s largest DDoS attacks for both government agencies and private enterprises. Tuna is a leader for architecture, engineering and research teams, creating solutions to protect client networks, establishing security testing policies, network and digital forensics, and serving as the subject matter expert for multiple private and government organizations. His past experience includes work at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Chickasaw Nations Industries. A recognized expert in DDoS attack mitigation, Tuna has shared his knowledge at Defcon, NoVa Hackers, NIH, FDA, DoD, Interpol and other organizations.
Abstract: PLXsert (Prolexic Security Engineering and Response Team) is responsible for security research and threat intelligence for Prolexic Technologies. The Distributed Denial of Service outlook definitely took new turn in 2012 and is continuing on that track for 2013. The threat landscape is one that requires two perspectives for a comprehensive view into the tactics of involved malicious actors. On the defensive side of the spectrum, these developments have paved way for creative innovation. Prolexic has been in the unique position to be able to observe this evolutionary process over the years, which has enabled the ability to stay on the forefront of upcoming attack techniques and associated BOTNETs. PLXsert will reveal findings and statistics that can only be collected from that of the defensive side. We will also disclose specific case studies that review some of the highlighted attack campaigns and toolsets behind this ongoing elevated threat within the one hour presentation.
