We are all focused on defending our organizations and our networks against vulnerability exploitation and the latest malware, but we sometimes forget that behind every attack is an adversary.
In this session we will give you an overview of today's threat landscape. What threats you are likely to face, their motivations, and what kind of tactics, techniques, and procedures they are likely to employ. Using this information, you can evaluate your defenses against these adversaries and identify courses of action to stop them in their tracks.
This session will be held by Alex Hinchliffe. Alex is a Threat Intelligence Analyst in Unit 42. His main responsibilities include research into threats, the groups behind them, their motivations and tactics. He started his career as an intern at the then Dr Solomon's Anti-Virus company in the UK and, two decades later, his research has largely focused on Windows and Android malware. While previously working for McAfee Labs Alex co-created the industry's first cloud-based Anti-Malware reputation system.
