400 - ThreatGEN Red vs. Blue "CTF" Challenge

ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue Challenge 
 
Which side will you choose? The hackers (red team) or the cyber defenders (blue team)? Hint: You get to take turns doing both! Battle head-to-head in turn-based cyber warfare, where the fate of a company's computers, network, information, and even critical industrial control systems hang in the balance.  
 
It's the CTF (Capture the Flag) FOR EVERYONE! 
 
Traditional cybersecurity CTFs involve solving a variety of (often technical) challenges, which earn the players points. ThreatGEN Red vs. Blue brings capture the flag back to what it was historically meant to be… team-on-team, infiltration style, competition! 
 
Game Play 
 
ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is a turn-based strategy game played much like popular global domination board games. Rather than a world map, the "game board" consists of a computer network, which players compete for control over. It’s simple and easy to learn. Instead of simulated computer terminals, players choose and commit actions using "action cards" similar to a trading card game. 
 
It's Not Just a Game: Learn Real-World Cybersecurity! Sharpen your knowledge! 
 
Developed by Clint Bodungen and Aaron Shbeeb, authors of Hacking Exposed: Industrial Control Systems and experienced cybersecurity professional Matthew Anderson, ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is the first ever multiplayer computer game designed to actually teach real-world cybersecurity! Players compete against each other, head-to-head, to take control/maintain control of a computer network. Learn how hackers think, operate, and attack systems by playing the part of the red team (no prior skills necessary)! Play the part of the blue team and learn about real cybersecurity controls, technology, methods, and strategies! ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is also the only training tool in the world that exercises practical application of “higher-level” and more strategic concepts such as building cybersecurity programs, risk mitigation strategy, and more.

BT-1016 Stop accepting risk. Resolve every alert!

Stop accepting risk. Resolve every alert!
Organizations are moving to more sophisticated endpoint technologies to help improve their security posture and decrease their risk profile.  However, the fundamental issue of alert fatigue remains, and three solutions have risen to the top as answers for the “noise”.  Alerts can be ignored due to time and resource constraints, the noise can be turned down by disabling feature sets within the tools themselves, or third party MSSPs can be leveraged to address the alert overload.  Each of those solutions are accompanied by either intentional or unintentional risk acceptance.  By ignoring alerts or disabling feature sets within a security tool set, organizations are intentionally accepting the risk to their business that those alerts that were or would have been created were not IOCs.  Third party MSSPs can provide tremendous value to Organizations that lack the proper resources to address security.

TH-2025 Hunting: How to start, go down a rabbit hole, and get out without relying on your tools

Hunting is one of the hottest buzzwords when it comes to cyber security - especially in defensive oriented realms. As a result, there are hundreds of tools, articles, and books on how to hunt. Yet, if it was that simple - why are we still having issues doing this successfully - even if we ignore advanced threat actors? There are so many tools that may be able to report that something is happening on a network, but the blue teams themselves are unable to interpret these results in a timely manner, which results potentially missing something critical.

Therefore, rather than introduce a new tool, this talk will focus on how people can improve themselves to be better hunter, and how to better structure teams to also hunt more effectively. The tools that blue teams use cannot always be controlled - as tools are restricted by policy, money, and availability. Instead, what we can control is how we operate, how we educate ourselves, and overall how do we function during a hunt.In this talk, I’ll focus on how to improve yourself with technical skills and soft skills . However, it is impossible for just one person to always find the bad guy. As a result, I will also concentrate on how team structure, dynamics, and other skills are also important and how to improve these.

This talk is aimed for beginners and intermediate blue teams who are looking to further improve themselves and how they function, so that we can work on being effective.

BT-2043 Large Scale Botnet Analysis

Large Scale Botnet Analysis – Massive botnet spreader campaign that we have dissected and are actively tracking.

Carbon Black's Threat Analysis Unit (TAU) uncovered various new and otherwise previously unknown components of a prominent cryptocurrency mining campaign. The botnet overseeing the operation leverages unique attack patterns that are designed to bypass application whitelisting, provide remote access, collect and exfiltrate sensitive information, and likely sell access to hundreds of thousands of compromised hosts. This multistage campaign highlights the need to remain vigilant in protecting your organization, as threats that may start off as commodity malware may transform and evolve into complex attacks over time.

We'll dive deep into this campaign and present findings which: 1) demonstrate the weaponization of commodity threats, 2) highlight the potential hidden impacts of commodity malware, and 3) show how attribution models can be misleading in an active threat economy.

IR-2014 Leveraging Osquery for DFIR at scale

Why is DFIR at scale imperative in today’s threat landscape?
* When responding to a potential Security Incident, time is the essence
* While pulling memory image from an endpoint and using Forensic tool like Volatility is the most comprehensive methodology, it is also very time and resource intensive.
* In this talk, we’ll try to explore if we can leverage an agent that’s already running on endpoints to kickstart initial triage and investigation
* Osquery is a popular Open Source Project with more than 5000+ commits from 264 contributors
* The Osquery framework exposes the Operating System as a relational database and we can run SQL queries to pull specific artifacts e.g. logged on users, process tree, docker containers etc
* Two parallel methodologies : (1) Stand-Alone to collect data one-off (during a forensic/reactive investigation (2) Running as a service for periodic data collection for anomaly detection/proactive threat hunting
* Attack Scenarios based on MITRE Attack Framework- e.g. Detecting Meterpreter Reverse Shell
* More use-cases: Detecting Docker Container Exploit attempt , Detecting malicious Crypto-mining, Scoping a Supply Chain Attack etc.
* Power of osquery Evented tables, File Integrity Monitoring etc.
* Custom Extensions and plugins 
* Interesting Projects and ongoing research from the Open Source Community

RE-1012 Ghidra for the begineer reverse enginering

The open-source release of the NSA's Ghidra disassembler gives software reverse engineers a free option for high-capability interactive analysis of binary code. Many software reverse engineering (SRE) practitioners have been spending time since the release learning about Ghidra and bringing it into their workflow. It also gives those new to SRE a toolset to learn with that is not restricted by commercial license costs or "demo" limitations.


The goal of this session is to expose attendees with no prior reverse engineering experience to the Ghidra disassembler. Ghidra will be used as an environment in which the basics of reading, navigating, and analyzing executable code will be demonstrated. Dr. McGrew will demonstrate how to install and configure Ghidra, and then load a series of sample programs that he will use to illustrate:
Strategies for analyzing unknown programsLinking and loading in WindowsData typesC code constructs in assembly
All of these concepts will be discussed in the context of the iterative process of reverse engineering unknown code--using what we know about the program based on its API calls and overtly documented information to deduce the types and purposes of undocumented variables and functions.


Attendees who wish to follow along should bring a laptop with Ghidra installed (http://ghidra-sre.org). A link will be provided in-class to samples that will be used. Following along is not required! Attendees who simply observe and ask questions will still gain a useful exposure to reverse engineering and Ghidra. Resources for continuing to learn reverse engineering will be recommended.

BT-2020 20/20 Enterprise Security Monitoring: Seeing Clearly with Security Onion

This presentation will discuss how teams can employ enterprise security monitoring (for free!) to better assess security controls and protect their computer networks. Various data types will be discussed, as well as their value to an investigation, and how that data can provide greater overall context to events occurring within computer networks.
Description: In this day and age, network breaches and security incidents are all but uncommon. As a community, we have begun to shift away from the age-old "magic box" approach of simply relying on the perimeter firewall to keep bad guys out, and have moved towards a stance in which we assume that at some point, the bad guys will make their way into our network. At such point, we must be able to quickly identify and take action in regard to such activity. As network defenders, this requires us to understand our networks. This means gaining perspective around normal network behavior, abnormal behavior, and the overall scope of an event. How do we do that? With Security Onion, of course! Security Onion is a completely free, open-source distribution used for enterprise security monitoring that can be easily deployed in your environment in minutes. This talk will highlight various ways in which Security Onion can be used to empower analysts, hunt for bad guys, and enhance overall organizational security posture. Topics discussed will include use cases, current and planned capabilities and integrations, as well as a typical investigative workflow.

TH-3011 Passive DNS & pBGP in Depth Lab

Passive DNS in Depth
Passive DNS (pDNS) data is a treasure trove of information for security teams, intelligence teams, network operations teams, and security research teams alike. By keeping an historical record of DNS results of time this data empowers many different teams to enrich and produce intelligence information for a variety of purpose. Merger and acquisition teams can look for internet facing, and sometimes internal, IT resources that may not have been declared. Blue teams can monitor for mis-configuration of DNS, research malware, develop threat signatures, and in many cases monitor for shadow IT. Red teams can use this information to exploit DNS misconfigurations, find additional assets, and pattern match target IT infrastructure. Security researchers are limited only by their imagination and time.
Passive BGP (pBGP) data can enable network operations teams to quickly spot problems. pBGP data is also useful to help determine if problems were a result of a simple misconfiguration or a part of a more nefarious operation.
Understanding the architecture and methodology of pDNS and pBGP is critical to end users of this data. By having a deeper understanding of the architecture (collection, storage, and query methodologies), individuals and teams will be more able to fully capitalize on the enrichment and context building capabilities of the data. As well as architecture, this course will cover a variety of scenarios for organizations of all sizes and maturity to help enable the use and integration of pDNS and pBGP data as a part of security and network operations.

CS-2019 Big Pink Elephants: Speed, Scale and the CISO

“Every Company has assets in the Cloud” basically making it a cloud company at some level.
While providing unprecedented speed of delivery, and access to never-before scalability the era of cloud computing has put enterprise security teams once again in a reactive stance. There are a few simple truths that, once accepted, have the potential to revolutionize how enterprise security approaches innovation through cloud computing. This talk will discuss topics like asset inventory, deployment integration, standardization, compliance, and outcomes to give CISOs of cloud-curious enterprises a prescriptive path forward. We can all acknowledge there are far too many tools, not enough staff, and an overwhelming abundance of badguys – but complaining isn’t going to solve our problems. This talk addresses the pink elephants in the room and gives suggestions and strategies to drive meaningful change.

DF-2011 How to build an effective malware protection architecture for file uploads in modern web apps

Web applications have traditionally accepted file uploaded via web portals, which had bot prevention controls to avoid bots uploading files vs user. With the boom of API economy, more and more applications have started accepting files over API, this allows uploading of file a programmatic approach available for good bots and vector for allowing numerous file uploads during a day. This convenience, also comes with security shortcomings - for example, files cannot be analysed manually for potential malware since the number is huge, there could be synchronous processing needed as business functionality in web app. This talk will look at a novel approach to build and operate a practical automated malware analysis platform and considerations for it to scale at enterprise level maintaining heavy performance needs of web apps, to effectively detect and discard malicious file uploads in web app.

As organizations combat threats across numerous vectors its forced defenders to rethink our tactics. Yes, attacks are crafty and slip past firewalls, SIEMS, and DLP solutions so why aren't we taking a more creative approach. We typically focus on incident response to drive detection and lessons learned to adjust monitoring. Let's discuss how to leverage incident response to foster successful threat hunting engagements. This session will demonstrate examples of tracing attacker movements, edging attackers out of your network, and creating countermeasures. The session will focus on important strategies, tools, and techniques to consider for your hunting engagements. We will highlight realities of the relationship between incident response and threat hunting, as well as provide real world examples of identifying attacker methodologies.

NA-1024 Network Traffic Analysis with Moloch

Moloch is an open-source tool for full network traffic capture and analysis.
https://molo.ch/

Trying to get a handle on what's happening on your network? Network defenders need a thorough understanding of traffic on their networks, and Moloch is an excellent way to get insight into what's happening on the wire.
Moloch is a free and open-source platform for full packet capture and analysis. It's scalable from small to very large applications and packages a whole bundle of handy tools, from connection maps to a built-in CyberChef instance for decoding and analysis.
Moloch makes an excellent threat hunting application. Analysts can pivot seamlessly from traffic metadata to raw capture analysis. Want to try another tool, or look at an old capture? Moloch ingests and exports standard PCAP files.
I'll walk you through the basics first. We'll talk about the Sessions, SPI, and Connections views. We'll talk about Moloch's customization options, where to find documentation, and how you can structure your workflow to chase down important artifacts quickly. Once we're comfortable with the bread and butter, we'll look at some of Moloch's advanced features. Hunts, recurring cron queries, and Moloch's powerful API will be the focus.
To cap things off, we'll take some time to walk through some publicly-available PCAP to apply our newfound skills. You should leave this talk with a solid understanding of how to leverage Moloch for your own investigations - sure to come in handy if you plan to compete in certain CTFs...

SC-1008 How to Avoid Supply Chain Pains for Financial Gains

Organizations rely heavily on third-party vendor relationships to provide their customers with various products and services. Mid-market companies, however, find themselves playing catch up to compete with the maturity of large organization risk assessment programs.

This talk will reflect on real-world examples of the speakers experience developing third-party risk assessment questionnaires and reviewing those provided to a number of Credit Unions and Healthcare institutions in various states (both geographically and maturity of their security programs). He will also discuss how to fold OSINT investigation techniques to perform detailed background checks on the partners and their employees.

Attendees will learn how to:
- Create and refine third-party risk quantification criteria for partners and vendors,
- The questions to ask your supply chain and discover the exaggerations, half-truths, and outright lies from respondents, and
- Extend their current risk assessment activities beyond simple documentation review using freely available OSINT tools and techniques.

98 - Overcoming Workforce Retention and Recruitment Challenges

Talented professionals form the critical infrastructure of any successful business, but how do we ensure successful retention and recruitment in an industry facing talent shortage? The insights shared in this session offer methods to promote a flowing talent acquisition pipeline, supported by the findings from two recent industry surveys, which examine how security professionals search for jobs and the impact of supporting community activities.

In order to recruit tech talent, you first need to know where they search for jobs. However, our cyber security job search survey found discrepancies in the ways that job seekers search for jobs and how recruiters primarily search for candidates. In this session I will discuss the top four reported job search methods to help employers guarantee their positions are visible and accessible.

I will also discuss how to attract and retain talent by tapping into the leading motivators that draw job seekers to a company, spanning compensation, good working environments, career mapping opportunities, support of work life balance, a more transparent hiring process, and remote work.

Shrewd employers also value volunteerism, as they understand that having employees operate in the community is a positive reflection on their company, helping to support their employer brand and recruitment strategy. I will urge employers to re-examine their support of volunteer activities, as over 97% of survey respondents reported they would move to a company that supported their volunteerism.

As we assess the ways that candidates approach their job search, employers will gain valuable insights to increase visibility and interest. By leveraging these findings and supporting community involvement, employers stand to build their employer brand and sustain lucrative retention and recruitment.
Notes: In an industry facing talent shortage, it is more vital than ever that employers utilize the right strategies to locate and recruit prospective candidates. Having personally surveyed the cyber security community and also having coached thousands of job seekers and employers to achieve the mutual goal of employment, I am excited to further share my best practices with Texas Cyber Summit attendees.

BT-2021 OWASP API Security Top 10

In recent years, large reputable companies such as Facebook, Google and Equifax have suffered major data breaches that combined exposed the personal information of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. The common vector linking these breaches – APIs. The scale and magnitude of these breaches are the reason API security has been launched into the forefront of enterprise security concerns – now forcing us to rethink the way we approach API security as a whole.


OWASP Top 10 project has for a long time been the standard list of top vulnerabilities to look for and mitigate in the world of web applications. APIs represent a significantly different set of threats, attack vectors, and security best practices. This caused the OWASP community to launch OWASP API Security project earlier this year.


In this session we’ll discuss:

· What makes API Security different from web application security

· The top 10 common API security vulnerabilities

· Examples and mitigation strategies for each of the risks

CO-1111 Be an Inspirational Coach, Not an Oppressive Security Executive

Security executives are often seen by employees as oppressive heavy-handed dictators that demand strict and uncompromising adherence with the organization's security program. In amateur and professional sports, this “coaching style” is referred to as autocratic coaching. Often seen in football, baseball, and hockey, among other popular sports in North America, this coaching style may not be suitable for teams comprised of experienced and passionate athletes as it stifles creativity and can lower morale due to the restrictions it places on the players. To train and play to the best of their ability, players usually want to feel important to their team - a feeling not easily found when following a rigid and unappreciated plan.
 
Enter the athlete-centric coaching style, commonly seen in rugby and soccer, that enables athletes to perform at their best while enjoying all the benefits the game has to offer. Coaches who use this style encourage players to voice their opinions and thoughts in order to make the best decisions. This engagement usually results in a stronger relationship with the team as well as a closer inter-team bond. Similarly, the more players are forced to make decisions, the more coaches can adapt to a style that encourages this type of critical thinking, and the greater your athletes will perform.
 
Perhaps we, as security professionals, have been trying to communicate the security needs of the organization all wrong? Sure, there are times when we need to tell people how to do something, but maybe there is a better way. Maybe changing from the traditional autocratic coaching style to a more athlete-centric coaching style would resonate better with employees and peers? Athlete-centric coaching may be the answer to participation, engagement, and program alignment that we’ve been missing.
 
Using his experience as a certified coach (USA Rugby, World Rugby) and an experienced security executive, attendees will learn how to apply an athlete-centric coaching methodology to the delivery and operationalization of an organizational cybersecurity program. Attendees will learn:

- The differences between traditional security-oriented autocratic coaching and athlete-centric coaching,
- The application of the "coaching continuum” to empower the organization to collaborative understand and increase security, and
- How to run a “coaching session” to bring together a group of people around a key program aspect and turn them into an efficient team.

ID-2022 Multi-Persona Identity Management

Organizations from small to large deal with multiple personas for every user. From the way they expect to interact with their desktop, to social media, and to the more important aspect the enterprise IT landscape, users expect access to just work. Authentication is expected to be ubiquitous, authorization transparent, and access provisioned seamlessly. The best implementations of identity and access management solutions are completely transparent to end users. This sessions will discuss the components of a mature identity and access management solution and considerations for selecting a product or designing your own solution.
Notes: a lot of IAM "solutions" focus on one aspect or another, provisioning, governance, roles, etc. What is important, regardless of vendor selection, is to understand each of the critical components of an IAM solution, and how they fit into your enterprise. the biggest challenge today is the multiple personas that a person brings to an enterprise. consider healthcare where I may be an employee, a contracted Dr, and a patient. How does an IAM system handle these personas? Consider higher education, perhaps I'm an employee but also a post-doc student. Consider K-12, I'm a teacher, but also a parent. A mature IAM system can reconcile and apply these personas properly.

TH-3005 Host & Threat Hunting on a Budget

First 100 days, I wanted to make a positive impact on the organization. I get a lay of the land and notice it was a majority Windows shop with no endpoint visibility. I go over how I prove to management and IT Operations when an opportunity presents itself. There is a suspicious beaconing of a known malicious domain. I quickly deploy Sysmon with PowerShell, as WinRM is enabled everywhere. Bam! I find Kovter fileless malware and break down the analysis. Now that I have buy-in, I go over the methods to get quick wins by deploying technologies like Sysmon, OSqeury, turn on auditing and Windows firewalls. I go over the benefits of Sysmon, how to deploy in the environment on a budget I do a post-mortem assessment and what I would have done differently.

RT-3021 Alternative C2 Frameworks Part 1 - Apfell

In the age of EDR products, Red Teamer's need to be able to customize everything on the fly - stock
Command and Control (C2) frameworks and agents quickly become insufficient. Why stop at simple
obfuscation or name changes for customization though? Red Teamer's can leverage operational data to
track artifacts created on target, create callback hierarchies, and even map operations to MITRE
ATT&CK. In this workshop, we'll present two C2 frameworks designed with customization and
collaboration in mind - Apfell and Covenant.
Students will navigate a series of labs to illustrate the advantages and use cases for when to use Apfell
and Covenant over other frameworks while in a simulated Active Directory enterprise environment. They
should expect to be able to install, customize, and leverage these frameworks within operational
environments when they get back to the office.

Workshop Outline (outline of teaching topics)
  • Intro to Apfell
  • Overview of lab scenario
  • Discuss install (but don't do it live)
  • Walk-through the lab, highlighting the following:
  • changing/tracking command modifications on the fly
  • Customized c2 traffic
  • Using modules (how it integrates with other tools people might use for macos/*nix, loading in safety checks/AD queries)
  • How to add a new command
  • How to add a new payload type/c2 profile
  • Reporting (artifacts and otherwise)

97 - Breaking Through the Boundaries of Cyber Security Job Search Challenges

Breaking Through the Boundaries of Cyber Security Job Search Challenges
We’ve all heard the old adage that finding a job is a full time job, but who has the time? With the right insights and resources in hand, you can maximize your job search efforts, turning them into successes. This presentation offers tools to take expert control of your cyber security career, by leveraging the findings from my two recent industry surveys, which examine the challenges of job search and the impact of volunteering in your professional community.When asked if they know how to find a job, 45% of survey respondents said no. In order to combat this problem, I will explore my top methods to help professionals evaluate, refine, and improve their job search strategy. These parameters span personally reflecting to know what you want to do, to developing the right career search products, understanding the different types of recruiters, and learning to utilize the right avenues for self promotion and networking.Volunteering in your professional community offers vast opportunities for building an expanded industry network. This is vital to continuous job search success, as 79% of survey respondents reported the most common way they find jobs is by asking their network of friends. Thus you can greatly progress your career by actively engaging in the external community to network, gain experiences, and create opportunities for continued learning.While career progression is typically seen as education, certification, and job moves, we need to build both technical and non-technical skills in order to continually advance and market our ever-expanding abilities. Volunteering provides a venue to learn essential skills that fuel your career trajectory by developing qualities spanning leadership, persistence, time management, problem solving, and more.Though the challenges that job seekers face are not unusual, they can be overcome with the right tactics in hand. By applying the guidelines presented in this session, more individuals in the community will have the tools they need to embark on the road to success in their cyber security careers.

BT-1050 Shining a Light on Shadow IT in the Cloud

We all know about Shadow IT and the risks and dangers that come with that but what about Shadow IT in the Cloud –that’s a scary thought. Now you have data in the hands of others and NO ONE KNOWS about it which means there aren't any governance or controls around it either. How do we lock down data in the cloud and ensure we have everything in place to avoid data loss or breach while also giving the business and other teams the tools they need to do their work? How do we block these ‘scary’ cloud services like file stores, pdf merger sites, code beautifiers, etc. when cloud is quickly becoming the new normal? Or infrastructure in the public cloud that isn't secured, inventoried, patched, logged, or monitored? How do you know that your business users don't have a public S3 bucket for collaboration?

Shadow IT refers to technology that is procured outside of official channels, processes and/or procedures meaning they aren’t vetted or managed by the IT and Security organizations. These types of procurements can put a company at great risk. We’ve seen the number of cases related to this steadily grow in many companies. With many easy-to-use solutions out there and with Cloud becoming the next big thing, Shadow IT in the Cloud has become one of our top security risks.

Shadow IT Happens: Workers are using a diversity of applications at work, from note-taking applications to file sharing applications. According to a recent Stratecast survey, 80% of workers admit to using SaaS applications at work, in many cases without IT approval.

Security, The “NO” people
So why do we have so many users turning to these cloud solutions? No one likes processes that slowdown their work and with security being the infamous “No” group, they’ll do whatever they can to avoid having to obtain approvals they may not get. What these users don’t realize is that security professionals aren’t trying to stop you from doing what you’re doing we’re just making sure that the security of the company is priority number one. Yes, we want to make sure that you can go along with your day to day work and even plug in some great new tools that make that work even easier but it is our responsibility to ensure the security of our data and the highly sensitive data that our members trust us with every day.

With that fear of rejection, users will turn to the vast amount of consumer applications available in the cloud. File sharing apps, social media, data stores, collaboration tools –these users just want easier, more efficient ways to get their work done. What they may not realize is how available this information can be once it’s put out there. “But I put this information in the Cloud, so it must be secure, right?” Many don’t realize the risks involved with these tools and without any IT or Security knowledge of these tools being used, there’s no way to monitor, track or respond to any type of malicious behavior or data incidents. The fault doesn’t lie solely on our users, as security professionals we need to be more open to the needs of our users. Instead of always saying “no”, we can say “maybe, but let’s see how we can secure it”. If users aren’t afraid to ask for the approval, the amount of Shadow IT begins to decrease.

Fixing the issue
As we work to explore these emerging technologies and create opportunities that users want/need, what do we do about the technologies being used today without us knowing about it? There are many ways to approach this, but here’s some insight as to how we’ve tackled the issue. 

First, there’s the approach that blends reviewing corporate card charges and purchase order billing and comparing those against contracts with cloud services/companies. Then blending that against DLP tools to find data being sent out/stored to ‘free’ cloud services that we wouldn’t necessarily see in a billing review. Many times, we see purchases and data sent out to cloud services we’ve never even heard of but it opens the door to more research and findings which leads to locking down potential risks. 

Second, we can leverage CASBs currently in place to review any cloud service accesses that employees have, block any access that hasn’t been reviewed and send the user to a bump page redirecting them to our cloud governance process. Being able to monitor user behavior and alert on any unusual behavior shines a light on the types of actions being done by our users every day and having this information helps us see when something out of the ordinary takes place.

Finally, with this type of information in place and always learning more about Shadow IT in the Cloud, we can utilize auto-remediation tools to lock down known malicious sites or sites that have not been fully analyzed. These types of tools are always learning and growing, with less and less human intervention needed, tracking user behavior, malware, malicious sites, etc. and taking action. Tools like these are what help us sleep at night. 

Infrastructure and Platform as a Service present their own challenges in terms of security controls. This presentation will also offer possible technical controls (preventive and detective) to address this risk.

What’s next?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) outlines best practices and processes for security professionals to use to manage risk in their systems. The five pillars of the framework being Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover. Today, cloud technologies lean toward the last 3 of said pillars but our goals are to get our cloud technologies aligned with Identify and Protect. As cyber security professionals, we will be proactive rather than responsive. 

OUTCOMES/CONCLUSION
Not everyone will be happy when you tell them they can’t do something they’ve become accustomed to or that there are new approvals they’ll need to obtain first. Not to mention all the work and resources needed for mitigation and remediation of any data incidents but it must be done. We need to work together with our users to find the best tools available that we can still manage and monitor. Our goal is to allow users to use the cloud services available to them, securely.

CS-2058 Build an Inspiring Company Culture to Get Great Results

Did you know that a company’s culture is a key defense against cyber threat? Consider that toxic, disengage company culture produces unhappy people. Unhappy people are less vigilant and less engaged in protecting a company from cyber attack. Most companies focus on Technology, Processes, but leave People to chance. Building a vibrant culture left to chance. Devoting time and resources to cyber security strategy and technology, but leaving company culture to chance is detrimental. People and company culture must be a key pillar of focus.

In this dynamic, hands-on session, we will identify 3 leader habits, the 7 culture building blocks, and key steps to implement a magnetic culture.

RESULTS:
1. Identify the current company culture and how it supports or detracts from goal-achievement.
2. Establish the 3 leader habits critical for a great culture and how to consistently apply those habits.
3. Identify the 7 culture building blocks and steps to implement.

Notes: The IT and Cyber industry conferences often focus on technical, technology, or processes. A significant missing piece is the focus on people. People are the greatest vulnerability. From leaders under-prepared for their leadership role to dysfunctional company cultures that create environments where unhappy employees can create the conditions for significant cyber exploitation. This workshop will help leaders and decision-makers review where their company culture may be undermining their cyber security program.

RT-3019 The Power of Wedging

This talk presents "wedging" as the strategic insertion of one's presence either along or at the end of a workflow.
The purpose being to passively receive data or enable quiet enumeration of systems and operations.

Two examples:
1. In research at UpGuard, it has been noted that many large enterprises with unique cloud storage bucket names will juggle those names. Meaning they will register and deregister bucket names with the cloud operator fairly often, which is assumed to be necessary due to caps on the number of bucket names per account. This introduces risk if a malicious actor is monitoring the buckets and realizes the pattern of on/off name toggling. A malicious actor could register a bucket with one of the unique names as soon as it is dropped, but before it is re-registered and then enable universal read/write access. This could then cause the enterprise to assume they had internally registered the bucket yet again and lead to data being written to the bucket by them (which, of course the malicious third party could then access). Versioning controlled by the third party prevents deletion/overwrite attempts even if noticed.
2. Shady political organizations have a tendency to quickly deregister domain ownership when one of their sites is caught up in a scandal. By registering the domain (after the previous owners attempt to wash their hands of it quickly), a third party can set up a catch-all email address at that domain. Any mails directed to that domain, from previous political conspirators will land in the new domain owner's catch-all inbox. This also enables the ability to receive password-reset emails for any accounts which utilized the domain as an email address when registering.

Aspects covered will be the concept itself, how malicious actors can exploit it, how defenders can prevent it, as well as options in responding to incidents of wedging being utilized against your organization.

CS-2013 DNS over HTTPS

Due to pervasive unpreparedness of users, applications, operating systems, and protocols, DNS has become an essential control point for “cyber” security. Most networks have a mix of legacy, modern, safe, and unsafe devices attached to them, and this condition won’t change as quickly as the Zerocorp initiative might suggest. However, DNS is also an important control point for authoritarian regimes, and so “bypass” innovation is  continuous, rapid, and ambitious. Special attention will be paid to the new "DNS over HTTP" or "DoH" protocol now being strongly pushed by Mozilla, CloudFlare, and others. In addition, a brief mention will be made of Resolverless DNS.

TM-2002 Threat Modelling : Creating a feedback Model in agile environment

Threat Modeling is an art of foreseeing the threats associated with an application and getting them fixed in a very early stage. There have been various Threat Modeling frameworks developed over the course of years. Most of companies follow their own version of Threat Modeling. However, these frameworks lack one of the most crucial steps in order to produce the maximum result of Threat modeling. The aim of this presentation is to provide you with the last missing piece of the puzzle. We help you complete the full circle of Threat Modeling and create a feedback model to create overall Threat Landscape for any organization.

We will talk about how and when you should upgrade your threat modeling process in order to accommodate newly introduced Threat Vectors in the market. We will also talk about building a security mindset that would help in successful Threat Model with a case study.

RT-2007 Red Team Tactics for Pentesters


What can a Penetration Tester gain from entering into the mindset of an Advanced Persistent Threat? Isn’t this what a Red Team is for? Imagine being able to connect your penetration testing actions with those of known APTs. Embrace your ability to help your client determine if their defenses are effective against potential APTs.

Traditional Penetration testing is a valuable asset to any organization. As a Penetration Tester it is our job to express how a weakness can affect an organization’s security posture. To go a step further and perform a Red Team engagement, an organization would get a solid understanding of how their security posture holds up to a simulated adversary. We know that these types of engagements are quite different in nature, but when it comes to penetration testing what if we could put a new spin on our actions and reporting? Now imagine that you’re conducting a penetration test and you utilize a covert method for persistence. After doing some research on ways to better maintain this persistence you discover that APT29 (Advanced Persistent Threat) actually uses this very TTP (Tactic, Technique, and Procedure). Whether the organization’s security team is able to respond accordingly or not, you can now provide a valuable piece of information to your client. Being able to connect the similarities of your penetration testing actions with known APT TTPs can really help improve the security posture of your client. If your client is in an industry targeted by APT29, then not only did you help determine their security posture but you may have just saved them from being an easy win for the adversary. By detailing your client’s response to actions taken, you’ll be able to help them determine if their defenses are adequate enough to defend against potential APTs. My goal is to help you blend both the traditional penetration testing methodologies with Red Team Tactics in order to become a more effective Offensive Security Professional.

CH-2028 Tuning EntuneⓇ Exploiting hidden features of your car's computer
Infotainment systems have placed internet connected computers into the dashboards of modern vehicles. Consumers now consider the connectivity and functionality of these computers as one of the most important criteria for purchasing a new car. For other computing platforms, communities of hackers and developers have grown around the concept of providing new features, or fixes to bugs, that the original manufacturers denied their customers. These communities provide the ability for users to modify their device, install additional software, and expand the device from its original functionality. In this talk we present the results of our extensive reverse engineering effort on the Toyota Entune infotainment system.

RT-1053 Predictive Analytics using Aggregated Threat Intelligence

Talk Details:

In this talk I'll discuss how DHS is leveraging classified threat intelligence to monitor, track, and hunt foreign intelligence activity in US Based Critical Infrastructure. We'll also discuss how you can use the same techniques to label threat intelligence and begin to perform predictive analytics based on aggregated threat intelligence and historical metrics.

We'll cover:


  • Organizing threat intelligence into meaningful and useful data
  • Ingesting historical metrics into structured databases to provide calculable metrics
  • Processing databases through supervised learning data science algorithms to uncover patterns
  • Analyze uncovered patterns to develop cautionary predictions around industry based attack patterns
  • How to pair observed threat activity with MITRE ATT&CK TTPs to research potential attribution

This presentation is born out of the DHS ECS (Enhanced Cybersecurity Services) program that is designed to quickly bring actionable classified threat intelligence to all US Based Critical Infrastructure.

Details about the DHS ECS program can be found here.

PR-3021 Bypassing Python 3.8 Audit Hooks

In Python 3.8, which is scheduled to be released October 2019, a new security feature is being implemented called “audit hooks”. According to PEP 578 and PEP 551, the purpose of audit hooking is to allow transparency into Python’s runtime so that events can be monitored and logged just like any other process. While additional insight is great for defenders, it's likely to become another hurdle for attackers to deal with. I dunno about y'all but I'm trying to run scripts unabated, feel me? Y'all tryna bypass these audit hooks or nah? Come through.

BT-3082 Learning to Rank Strings Output for Speedier Malware Analysis

StringSifter: Learning to Rank Strings Output for Speedier Malware Analysis
In static analysis, one of the most useful initial steps is to inspect a binary's printable characters via the Strings program. However, running Strings on a piece of malware inevitably produces noisy strings mixed in with important ones, which can only be uncovered after sifting through the entirety of its messy output. To address this, we are releasing StringSifter: a machine learning-based tool that automatically ranks strings based on their relevance for malware analysis. In our presentation, we'll show how StringSifter allows analysts to conveniently focus on strings located towards the top of its predicted output, and that it performs well based on criteria used to evaluate web search and recommendation engines. We’ll also demonstrate StringSifter live in action on sample binaries.

BT-2034 Keeping Threat Intelligence in Pace with Continuous Monitoring

Cyber Threat Intelligence is a term that gets thrown around allot. But what does it look like to integrate it into your continuous monitoring program? What real world experience proven strategies and tactics can an organization adopt to start making intelligence driven choices? My talk covers what I think are the most appropriate parts of a threat intelligence program to start weaving into your operations depending on the maturity level of your organization. It is not threat intelligence 101, but it will cover fundamental items which an organization can start to use to be ready for a full Threat Intelligence team or engagement with an outside partner.

Description: Threat Intelligence remains elusive and mysterious to many organizations. There is often little in the way of true CTI in many organization, new and old, aside from subscription feed services. This can lead to both complacency in the sense of “oh we have threat intel” as well as misplaced dissatisfaction with regards to the “threat intel’ they think they have and the true benefits it can provide. If you can evangelize and integrate Threat Intelligence as an organization is just getting its continuous monitoring going (i.e. A SOC and all that goes with it) then the growth of the CTI program will always be in step with the organizations capabilities as opposed to lagging behind it, or worse, out pacing it. The organizations who ask for our help are often understaffed, under-resourced, and begging for help. The suggestions that follow will help maximize their efforts as well as put them in a position to help us help them.

CW-1018 Insider Threats: Stories from outside the cubicle

Talk Details:
My talk will cover: Real vs. Hollywood insider threats. During the talk, I will show instances of insider threats from around the world including two specific cases I have worked over the years where I caught insider threats. We’ll talk about what they took, how they took it and how we were able to catch them. These examples will reinforce my talk with personal experiences. Case No. 1 will be the story of a rouge system administrator who was selling info to acquisition targets. Case No. 2 will review a case where an employee was trying to steal the formula for a manufacturing process and client lists, as well as trying to damage the employer by sending confidential info to employees.


Turn off your mobile phone, put down your tablet and learn about the real-world insider threats causing the greatest harm (not just the big ones that make the 5 o’clock news). How quickly could your organization be breached by malicious insiders? How can your team help find them? Threat hunters are often tasked with looking for attackers’ TTPs. But how can they look for malicious insiders? Please join our special guest, David Balcar a globally recognized security professional, as he shares his personal, real-world experience of sniffing out insider threats.

The ABC’s of CTF’s

The ABC’s of CTF’s will teach the terminology used in InfoSec/Cyber Security CTF’s at a high level. This includes the Type of CTF’s and the tools for basic operations.
Goals
  1. Talk terminology Technology, and learning, 
  2. Teach how to capture the flag 
  3. Capture all the flags!!
Forward 
if you have never done or attended a CTF event before, it is ok, stay calm, dig in, hack, and learn. This is the exact process Hackers, Pentesters and Red Temers use to infiltrate, exploit and egress data or conduct offensive security assessments. If this is your first one EVER try and find a team, or work with experienced CTF’ers. If you can't find this its OK. Sit, dig in,  hack, abd learn. It is important to keep that mantra in mind. 
It is my experience, the InfoSec community is open, and  willing to share their knowledge with anyone interested. Social media, and IRL mentors are great ways to connect, learn and find people with similar interests. Always good to learn and teach to keep the flow of knowledge, even if you don’t think what you know has value, i promise you I want to know what you know, come teach me!

HX-3012 PErfidious: Make PE Backdooring Great Again!

PErfidious is a Python3 tool that aims to directly take a benign PE executable and malicious shellcode as input. Next, it transforms the shellcode into individual pieces of independent code that can be connected via jumps and calls and then converts the transformed code back into individual collection of bytes. These collections are then injected into appropriate locations in the .text section of the PE file. After injection, PErfidious performs all the recalculations required to incorporate the changes in the .text section. This makes sure that all the regular traces of code injection are gotten rid of. The only way for the endpoint detection system to verify that the program was injected is to calculate or read the hash/checksum of the PE file and compare it with the has/checksum provided by the original author of the benign application that was injected by us.
Apart from being a tool, PErfidious is also a Python3 library that can be used for inspecting, dissecting and injecting PE files. It extracts every data structure inside a PE file and convert it into an editable class file with appropriately nested subclasses(it even outputs the entire structure in XML so that a user can develop web applications around it). It aims at being a modern and extensible replacement for pefile package and the go-to library for working with anything related to PE32/PE32+/DLL type files.

CS-2024 The Risk Management Hydra and why you need multiple assessments

A risk assessment is a risk assessment is a risk assessment, right? Except that that isn’t really true at all. Organizations face a wide variety of risks every day, and even the most comprehensive risk assessments still typically only address one or more specific type(s) of risk - cyber risk, privacy risk, market risk, customer risk, enterprise risk, etc. This is exactly why it’s crucial for great risk management programs to address all these different components appropriately. Two examples include the business impact analysis (BIA) that guides business continuity planning and disaster recovery (BCP/DR) plan creation efforts, and the data protection impact assessment (DPIA) required for certain types of data processing activities under Article 35 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]).

This talk will walk the audience through the Business Impact Analysis Worksheet published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Sample DPIA Template published by the Information Commissioner’s Office, the independent supervisory authority of the United Kingdom (which will still technically be a European Union member state at the time of this Summit). By taking this hands-on approach, the different information, thought processes, and goals of these two very different types of risk assessment will clearly demonstrate why a great risk management program must evaluate risk from a diverse set of directions.
Notes: It can be difficult for IT departments to get the funding and executive support they need to properly address information security and compliance concerns, especially when so many interventions may sound similar. By using my previous experience as an instructor while working on my PhD in criminal justice (in progress) at Temple University with the knowledge I have about these frameworks from my current position, I can walk people through these templates in a way that is simple but still nuanced, easy to understand, and can be brought back to their leadership to justify the resources required to build out a comprehensive risk management program that is appropriately suited to their organization’s needs. I’m a compliance consultant who designs many of the in-house tools used for Red Lion’s gap assessments with a variety of frameworks (e.g., HIPAA, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, NIST SP 800-171, GDPR, CCPA, PCI DSS). My role is to act as clients’ translator between the “legalese,” audit protocols, and technical controls and plain English explanations of where their program is, where they want it to be, and how to get there.

RT-3022 Alternative C2 Frameworks Part 2 - Covenant

In the age of EDR products, Red Teamers need to be able to customize everything on the fly - stock
Command and Control (C2) frameworks and agents quickly become insufficient. Why stop at simple
obfuscation or name changes for customization though? Red Teamers can leverage operational data to
track artifacts created on target, create callback hierarchies, and even map operations to MITRE
ATT&CK. In this workshop, we'll present two C2 frameworks designed with customizability and
collaboration in mind - Apfell and Covenant.
Students will navigate a series of labs to illustrate the advantages and use cases for when to use Apfell
and Covenant over other frameworks while in a simulated Active Directory enterprise environment. They
should expect to be able to install, customize, and leverage these frameworks within operational
environments when they get back to the office.

Workshop Outline (outline of teaching topics)
  • Intro to Covenant
  • Overview of lab scenario
  • Discuss install (but don't do it live)
  • Walk through lab, highlighting the following:
  • Changing something on the fly
  • Customized C2 traffic
  • Using modules (how it integrates with other tools people might use now, like powershell scripts or other .net programs)
  • How to add a new module
  • Lateral movement (and intro to smb c2)
  • Reporting (artifacts and otherwise)

ES-2007 Introduction to Embedded Systems Exploitation

IoT isn't going away, so it's our job to break it down and force it to be rebuilt securely. This workshop will introduce people to the basics of embedded system exploitation and take them from 0 to 0day against a SOHO router.
Briefing Format: Workshop (120 minutes)
Audience Level: Intermediate 
Description: A team of veteran Vulnerability Researchers will guide participants through the beginning stages of attacking an embedded system, including: disassembly of the target; discovery of hardware interfaces; establishing console communication; protocol discovery; attack vector enumeration; fuzzing; reverse engineering and vulnerability discovery; crafting a PoC. Students won't learn everything there is to know in a workshop, but by the time they leave, they should have the tools they need to cut a path through the jungle and start finding hidden treasures. All attendees will need to have a working understanding of the C programming language, as well as knowledge of assembly language in any architecture (x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.), or they will be lost in the sauce. We will provide targets and a custom Kali Linux ISO with tools included that will be needed for the workshop, including that one Ghidra thing everyone keeps talking about. Students will need to provide their own laptop that they can use to spin up the ISO provided, either via virtualization or booted from media.

WS-1023 - Malware Traffic Analysis Workshop 2

This session is part two of a hands-on workshop presented across two separate sessions. The training provides a foundation for investigating packet captures (pcaps) of malicious network traffic from hosts running Microsoft Windows. Participants will review basic investigation concepts, set up Wireshark, and identify hosts and users in network traffic. The training provides several examples of infection traffic that focuses on mass-distribution commodity malware commonly seen from malicious spam. Pcaps for this workshop will be available online. For the best hands-on experience, participants should have a relatively current version of Wireshark (version 2.6 or better), preferably in a non-Windows environment.
  • You will be required to bring your own laptop, please install a virtual machine (VM) running Linux is recommended for participants using a Windows-based laptop.

IR-3017 The ABCs of Containment, Eradication, and Recovery

In the physical realm, a successful hunt ends with either a kill or a capture. While some might enjoy the thrill of the hunt, no one really wants to walk away empty handed. Why do we treat hunting in the digital realm differently? The Containment, Eradication, and Recovery phase of the Incident Response Lifecycle is the digital equivalent of the kill or capture in the physical world. Proper execution of this phase is necessary for a successful hunt, and it’s as easy as remembering your ABCs. You’ve stalked and located your prey, evil has been found, are you prepared to take it out?

Containment, Eradication, and Recovery is a key phase of the NIST Incident Response Lifecycle that often doesn't receive the attention it deserves. Focus is mainly placed on detection and analysis. After an incident, organizations are often left with a report detailing attacker activity with a few remediation suggestions at best, leaving them on their own to figure out what to do next. Any incident involving a determined human adversary (aka "advanced persistent threat") requires simultaneous disruption of three key areas known as "the ABCs" (Accounts, Backdoors, Command and Control). We'll cover a three-phased approached that addresses the ABCs and has been proven successful in use across many of the most high profile incidents over the last decade. Starting with a high level strategic overview of this methodology before getting into the technical details on how to address the ABCs during each phase of this approach using freely available tools.

TH-2020 Rastrea2r: Collecting & Hunting for IOCs with Gusto and Style

Rastrea2r: Collecting & Hunting for IOCs with Gusto and Style
Rastrea2r (pronounced "rastreador" - hunter- in Spanish) is a multi-platform open source tool that allows incident responders and SOC analysts to triage suspect systems and hunt for Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) across thousands of endpoints in minutes. To parse and collect artifacts of interest from remote systems (including memory dumps), rastrea2r can execute sysinternal, system commands and other 3rd party tools across multiples endpoints, saving the output to a centralized share for automated or manual analysis. By using a client/server RESTful API, rastrea2r can also hunt for IOCs on disk and memory across multiple systems using YARA rules. As a command line tool, rastrea2r can easily integrate with AV consoles and SOAR tools, allowing incident responders and SOC analysts to collect forensics evidence and hunt for IOCs without the need for an additional agent, with 'gusto' and style!

CO-1009 How to Translate Tech Trends to CISO strategy

How to translate tech trends to CISO strategy & ops

Today's technology industry swims in a number of intersecting trends - digital transformation, vendor consolidation, automation, intelligence, to name a few - all drowning in scary exabytes of data; the purpose of this session will be to cover the big trends, how they intersect, what to pay attention to, and how to customize an analysis framework to your organization - so you can decide what to look at, and what to ignore; real organizations have practical concerns like security program planning, SOC management and talent management; on top of the day to day pressure that is cyber security; the question is how to look ahead and plan for which trends matter and how to practically integrate them into your strategy and operations to reap the benefits.

RT-1050 Calishing: A Red Team Approach to Phishing Google Calendar

On Halloween, October 31, 2018, 2 Black Hills Security Researchers, Beau Bullock and Michael Felch disclosed, step-by-step to Google how anyone with a gmail account could add an event, as "accepted" to any Google Calendar via the Google Calendar API. Google called it a feature. Why, a year later is this not fixed? This talk will demonstrate how this "calishing" attack can be utilized in a Red Team operation where the target organization uses G-Suite. I will demonstrate this by leveraging an open source python tool that I have developed, G-Calisher, based on Beau Bullock's and Michael Felch's PowerShell module "Invoke-InjectGEventAPI" from their MailSniper tool. I will lead the audience through the entire kill chain from recon (How to determine if an organization is using G-suite for its email) through Command and Control. I will also discuss how the organization can stop this attack.

IT-2017 Next-gen IoT botnets - leveraging cloud implementations for shells

Traditional IoT botnets operate pretty much like shooting fish in a barrel. With an elephant gun. This "space", however, is getting crowded and botnet masters will start looking for alternatives. This talk will show one of the possible futures - leveraging cloud platforms to mass hack hundreds of thousands of devices. We'll start with a quick 'n dirty crash course for those just getting started with IoT hacking, a brief glimpse into the current status of IoT botnets and get down to business with showing our research on a few popular IoTs with demos for each finding.

RT-2018 REST in Peace: Abusing GraphQL to Attack Underlying Infrastructure

GraphQL is a query language for APIs set to replace RESTful architecture. The use of this technology has achieved rapid adoption and is now leveraged by companies such as GitHub, Credit Karma, and PayPal. Despite its popularity, this new approach to building APIs can leave organizations at risk. While it solves real-world problems, proper implementation is left up to developers who often don't fully understand how to secure their API. Security best practices are easily overlooked, and rushed development can leave cracks in the armor. These issues create a new attack surface for us to explore as well as new ways to exploit underlying infrastructure and code. From Queries and Mutations to Types and Fields, properly attacking a target requires that you understand it. We will learn enough about GraphQL to be dangerous. Demonstrate how to use the technology’s intricacies against itself while taking advantage of implementation errors and misconfigurations. Examine GraphQL specific attacks as well as tried and true techniques adapted to fit into the GraphQL context. Then walk through how to carry out these attacks efficiently and effectively.

Today’s red team isn’t enough. Because we want to move our defense and understanding beyond a detection-based approach which has repeatedly been demonstrated to fail. How do we emulate an adversary? We will go through multiple considerations of the entire red team lifecycle including walking through open source toolsets. We will talk through in detail specific host and network activities for emulation. And, we will conclude with how we can work on these activities towards a purple team approach.

TH-1015 Finding the Rogue Node

This presentation is a low-medium level technical break down on how to find a rouge device inside a vast computer network with open source tools. This not only shows how to use these tools but equips the attendee on what tools for a specific incident. This presentation further covers the difference between "traditional forensics" and Incident Response. At the end of this presentation the attended should understand what tools during a hard drive forensic investigation, memory forensic investigation and a network forensic investigation.

Description: Ever wanted to know the difference between IR and traditional digital forensics? Let me guess, you have no budget but you need to defend your network! Well from this presentation you will not on learn how to defend if for free, but learn the methodology of how an attacker moves and where they hide.

TI-1044 Threat Intelligence: How to Focus Fire on the Bad Guys

As a blue teamer or threat hunter, how many times have you been told to go “find evil”? How many times have you been expected to search for every adversary tactic until you MAYBE find the bad guy? NO MORE! This talk will examine what threat intelligence is and how it can be used to better inform defenders on prioritizing which bad guys to look for first.
Now when most people hear “threat intelligence” they have the same reaction as to hearing “blockchain”, “artificial intelligence”, or “synergistic management solutions”. It’s unfortunately true that threat intelligence has become a buzzword in the cyber security field. So how do we turn this buzzword into something that can be put into practice? Lucky for you, this very question will be answered here! You will see the process of discovering which specific adversaries are targeting your organization, all the way down to finding the tactics, techniques, and procedures the bad guys use to steal your data. Finally, we will close with a scenario-based story time, walking you through an example of how this threat intelligence process can be used in your organization’s regular hunt operations.
