WMI Attacks - What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You

  • Chad Tilbury
  • Monday, August 6th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

In the spectrum of things that keep enterprise security teams up at night, WMI should be heading to the forefront. Advanced adversaries are increasingly adding WMI-based attacks to their repertoires, and most teams are woefully unprepared to face this new threat.

You need to understand what you are up against, and attendees will leave with a comprehensive overview of the state of WMI hacking, including real-world examples of nation state and criminal actor tradecraft. Once you have a strong understanding of the threat, Chad will pivot to defense and discuss detection tools and analysis techniques.

While parts of this presentation will necessarily be technical, even those less technical will leave with a greater understanding of the threat and a checklist of actionable steps to better increase their organization's security posture.
