In a world where everything and everybody is connected, our future is tied to the access, availability, and synthesis of information. The complex cybersecurity challenges facing government agencies require both tactical and strategic solutions.
Booz Allen Solutions
Booz Allen Hamilton helps clients respond with effective tactical solutions—while positioning them to be ready for what’s next, with longer term strategic solutions that address information assurance and cyber resiliency.
In this demonstration you can learn how easily hackers can gain persistent computer access, what they can do once they are inside, and how to address this threat. We will show:
how something innocuous such as opening a PDF file attached to an email can enable an attacker to gain access to one computer--and thereby the entire enterprise
the functionality that the attackers have at their disposal: screen captures, webcam and microphone recording, keystroke recording, file search, data infiltration and more
how to identify this type of malicious code utilizing a Booz Allen tool, Automated First Responder, which utilizes statistical analysis to identify the unknown malware typically utilized by the Advanced Persistent Threat
iAssurance Mobile App for Cyber Readiness and Resiliency
Booz Allen has developed an iPad application designed to provide rapid real-time information to cyber professionals and system administrators about new product vulnerabilities and the potential damage they can cause. This demonstration showcases the powerful features of this innovative application, such as:
a sharing functionality that integrates social media capabilities
access to the NIST National Vulnerability Database
the ability for users to navigate the NIST 800-53 control set
ease and portability that enable cyber professionals to better understand system vulnerabilities and risk at net-centric speeds
Today's cybersecurity threat continues to evolve into a broad and sophisticated range of adversaries with the skills, resources, patience, and motivation to accomplish their goals. Whether they are stealing intellectual property and state secrets or disrupting/destroying critical systems and infrastructure that power our economy and ensure our national security, our nation is at risk. This demonstration looks at several facets of Booz Allen’s efforts in the arena of Advanced Persistent Threats, such as
an integrated approach across the full spectrum of people, process, and technology
the need to implement a way of thinking and action to address these issues
specialty tools that can proactively protect against highly sophisticated adversaries who have the ability to bypass all of today's best practices solutions
In this demonstration discover how Booz Allen's Cyber Aggressor Simulator (CAS) can be used to tangibly evaluate cyber threats and information assurance (IA) mitigation strategies using an automated hacker emulation approach. As a more inclusive way to conduct an impact analysis than simple penetration testing, our approach leverages previous evaluations, actual white-hat and black-hat attacker operational and analytical methods, real-time sensors, and the latest industry exploits.
CAS is distinguished by its ability to:
emulate attacker techniques and methodologies
perform multi-step recon and exploitation
launch exploits based on vulnerability decision analyses
continuously update attacker profiles with the latest intelligence and forensics data
Booz Allen demonstrates a successful strategy for dynamic cyber policy development that we can apply to policy and strategic initiatives for any organization, as well as our Dynamic Policy Tool, which provides real-time DoD Policy guidance and updates to the DoD policy. The tool can:
facilitate collaboration and information sharing
improve policy and guidance through feedback
connect policymakers with the operational community
This demonstration will explore some of the work being done by our Commercial Solutions Testing Laboratory. The Laboratory is an information technology (IT) computer
security testing laboratory that is accredited by NIST to conduct IT security evaluations for conformance to the Common Criteria, FIPS 140-2, PIV, and S-CAP standards.

Booz Allen Executive Vice President Mike McConnell will share his experience and wisdom about cyber power security and the need to create a dialogue among business, civil society, and government on the challenges we face in cyberspace. McConnell leads Booz Allen’s Intelligence Business. He previously served from 2007-2009 as U.S. Director of National Intelligence (DNI). His career has spanned over 40 years focusing on international developments and foreign intelligence issues, first as a career intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy, as the Senior Intelligence Officer on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and as Director of the National Security Agency from 1992-1996
