OSINT: The Secret Weapon in Hunting Nation-State Campaigns

Presented by

Alon Arvatz, Co-Founder at IntSights Cyber Intelligence

About this talk

The common notion is that state actors engaged in APT campaigns work in solitude and launch their destructive attacks in the stealthiest manner possible, rendering all pre-emptive intelligence actions against them useless. Is that what happens today? Is their way to perform reconnaissance activities and monitoring criminals on darknet and Clear Web to discover these campaigns? Discussing real use cases of state actors engaged in APT campaigns, explore what can be done with the available intelligence tools we have today, specifically from the Dark Web. The discussion will include real use cases of APT actors performing reconnaissance activities on darknet platforms and on the Clear Web. It will provide useful tips for organizations who wish to assess their exposure and vulnerability to such attacks by using the same reconnaissance methods as the threat actors themselves and advanced OSINT tools.
