Learning From The Adversary: Automated Malware Analysis For The Win

  • Dean Parsons
  • Thursday, April 26th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Dean highlights the basic to intermediate approaches for malware analysis for IT and ICS environments. Four methodologies are reviewed. The focus is on quick triage to scope cyber incidents and gathering indicators of compromise (IOCs) for practical defense.

The talk is geared towards new or existing organizations looking to augment their defenses by gleaning actionable intelligence from the adversary's Malware. Wheather you deploy a fully automated system or just have one keen employee empowered to hunt for evil - a small investment in malware analysis can help neutralize the adversary to maintain the safety and reliability of operations.
