Security Congress Abstract
Some threat actors are motivated by money, some want fame and glory, some want to influence our decisions, and some just want to see the world burn. Threat actors will go to extreme measures to achieve their objectives. The rules of engagement have changed. Over the past two years, we have observed a significant rise in aggressive attacks—extortion, public shaming, destruction, intentional business disruption and even threats to human safety. This talk will walk through several attacks observed on the front lines by the presenters.
• an overview of the threat actors and their motivations.
• a discussion of the TTPs employed by aggressive threat actors.
• several case studies
• suggestions for preparing for and responding to aggressive threat actors
