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

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.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
- Master's Degree Presentation: Presentations given by SANS Technology Institute's Master's Degree candidates.
