Next up in getting my slides out from presentations I’ve done the past few months is a threat intel spin on using Evernote to defend the enterprise. Obviously, a true enterprise isn’t going to use Evernote in this way however the goal of the talk was to provide a reference framework that could be implemented in any Evernote-like tool that an enterprise may already have (e.g., SharePoint or OneNote).
This deck, with title, abstract, and SlideShare frame below, is the first version of this presentation so please be kind. I would also like to thank the organizers of SourceBoston for having me. It was an amazing conference where I learned a lot and met up with a many great infosec leaders in the community.
Defending the Enterprise with Evernote
Most people are already familiar with Evernote. It’s easy to just throw all our miscellaneous data into the Elephant and effortlessly find it later with a quick search or correlate similar ideas with tags. Evernote is literally our external brain that increases our intelligence and helps us become more productive overall. This presentation discusses an experiment of using Evernote as a defensive management platform, the specific concepts and strategies used, and its overall effectiveness. Specific topics covered will include the advantages of using an open and flexible platform that can be molded into an open/closed source threat intelligence database, an information sharing platform, and an incident case management system. Although using Evernote in this way in large enterprises is probably not possible, the same lessons learned can be applied to implement a similarly effective system using internally-hosted open source or commercial software.
