An Interactive Look at Cyber Crime & Today's Threat Landscape

  • Stephen Sims
  • Sunday, January 28th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Let's take a journey through the most common attack trends, malicious software, and techniques used by adversaries today. Cyber-criminals closely monitor the landscape for changes, actively respond to these changes, and remain one step ahead of our efforts to maintain an acceptable level of security. It is critical for our defenders to keep up with these forever-changing techniques. Surprisingly, the success of cyber-criminals often depends on basic mistakes still made by users. Join Stephen as he performs several demonstrations of exploiting both publicly disclosed and privately disclosed vulnerabilities involving applications such as Internet Explorer/Edge, Skype, as well as reverse engineering live Ransomware. This presentation will weave in and out of high-level definitions and concepts, all the way to advanced demonstrations and reverse engineering.
