Aggressive and Unpredictable: The Threat Posed by North Korean Cyber Attackers

Presented by

Dick O'Brien, Principal Research Editor, Sylvester Segura, Threat Intelligence Analyst, Javier Santoyo, Technical Director

About this talk

While no organization should assume that it is at low risk of a state-sponsored attack, this is doubly the case when it comes to North Korea-linked groups. While attackers linked to the country’s regime have been heavily involved in espionage-type attacks, they have branched out into destructive sabotage attacks and a range of financially motivated attacks. Organizations of all sizes may be potential targets and take steps to mitigate the risk of attack. Join Dick O’Brien, principal research editor, and Sylvester Segura, threat intelligence analyst, from Symantec’s Critical Attack Discovery and Intelligence team, along with Javier Santoyo, technical director for Symantec Endpoint Security, to learn about: • The North Korean cyber ecosystem • The varying motivations behind attacks by North Korean groups • A deep dive into the operations of Stonefly, a North Korean group heavily involved in stealing industrial and military secrets • How customers can best use Symantec products to protect themselves from these threats
