About this talk

Join FireEye in discussing our latest report on the Russia-based cyber threat group APT28 - APT28: At the Center of the Storm. FireEye first publicly announced that the Russian government likely sponsors APT28 in a report released in October 2014. APT28 has pursued military and political targets in the U.S. and globally, including U.S. political organizations, anti-doping agencies, NGOs, foreign and defense ministries, defense attaches, media outlets, and high profile government and private sector entities. Since at least 2007, APT28 has conducted operations using a sophisticated set of malware that employs a flexible, modular framework allowing APT28 to consistently evolve its toolset for future operations. APT28’s operations closely align with Russian military interests and the 2016 breaches, and pursuant public data leaks demonstrate the Russian government's wide-ranging approach to advancing its strategic political interests.
