From APT to AVT - Investigating the Latest Threats
- Jess Garcia
- Friday, September 26th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm
APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) attacks can no longer be considered new. However, the techniques behind those attacks continue evolving, and now drive-by and watering hole attacks are slowly replacing the traditional spear-phising.
At the same time the Dark Side continues evolving towards more effective attacks that can bypass our defenses. AVT (Advanced Volatile Threat) seems to be getting more and more popular, as well as sophisticated Zero-Day Malware, Ransomware, POS Malware, Android Malware or even Airgap Jumping Malware.
Protecting our organizations against these threats is getting more and more difficult, and a new trend towards early detection and rapid response seems to be emerging in the defensive community.
In this talk Jess Garcia will be dissecting this new breed of attacks, and will show how a combination of different forensic techniques can be effective in the detection, investigation, and analysis of such attacks.
