The Offensive Defender | Cyberspace Trapping

  • Matthew Toussain
  • Tuesday, February 26th, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

The attacker always wins because they have the advantage. Wrong!

Any seasoned red teamer knows that they need to succeed at each stage of their compromise to achieve the objective. As defenders, we only need to stop them along one point in the intrusion. By leveraging our Home Field Advantage and weaponizing our networks with traps and snares, we have the opportunity to take the initiative and bring the fight to the intrusion set.

Attackers may have an untold and ever-growing number of tools and techniques to use during the attack, but they have a limited set of tried and true tactics. Targeting the adversary and poisoning their tried and true tactics lets us weaponize our environments where the Threat's own decision making is their undoing. When an attacker can never be certain if their own, unique tools are safe for them to use, their decision making is disrupted and the fight is already won. This talk is about the strategy of cyberspace trapping and includes a library of scripts and demonstrations for attendees to take with them and apply on the day.
