Title: How Attackers Win

Synopsis: Movies, TV and even some non-fictional press leads most to believe that a cyber attack is a complicated endeavor conducted by teams of highly skilled people. The reality is, that most successful attacks are not complicated in the least. Advanced Persistent Threat is actually more like Average Phishing Technique. This presentation will highlight real world attacks, why the attackers were successful and how they could have been stopped. We will share data, as seen by our service, that helps illustrate why attackers choose the attack vectors they do and how simple security hygiene can go a long way to prevent a successful attack.

“So many IOCs. How to Finally Manage All of Them” – Over 430 million new IOCs were created in the past year, many of which were machine generated and come to you in too many lists and emails. You need a way to manage receiving these IOCs as well as redistributing them. This talk will teach you about the challenges and considerations regarding collecting and managing threat intelligence for your organization.
