Adversary Simulations - Taking Attack Models and Penetration Testing to the Next Level

  • Jorge Orchilles
  • Monday, March 26th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

It is extremely rare that a single vulnerability causes a critical, direct risk to your entire environment. In reality, it is what the attacker does with the access gained that matters most. In this talk we will talk about maturing our attack models to gain enough intelligence to simulate the Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures of the adversary against our entire environments. Attackers do not limit themselves to one application, instead they look at your organization holistically to formulate an attack that achieves their objectives. We will discuss an adversary simulation framework and share a case study of it in action.
