DLP FAIL!!! Using Encoding, Steganography, and Covert Channels to Evade DLP and Other Critical Controls

  • Kevin Fiscus
  • Tuesday, July 19th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

It's all about the information! Two decades after the movie Sneakers, the quote remains as relevant, if not more so. The fact that someone hacks into an environment is interesting but not that relevant. What is important is what happens after the compromise. If the data is destroyed or modified, organizations are negatively impacted but the benefits to an attacker for destruction or alteration are somewhat limited. Stealing information however, is highly profitable. Identity theft, espionage, and financial attacks involve the exfiltration of sensitive data. As a result, organizations deploy tools to detect and/or stop that data exfiltration. While these tools can be extremely valuable, many have serious weaknesses; attackers can encode, hide, or obfuscate the data, or can use secret communication channels. This session will talk about and demonstrate a range of these methods.
