Selling Breaches: How Cybercriminals Buy and Sell Network Access

Presented by

Paul Prudhomme, Head of Threat Intelligence Advisory at IntSights

About this talk

Security teams face a great many challenges in protecting their organizations from cyberattacks, but the threat of a network breach looms largest over their heads. Threat actors often initiate breaches of enterprise networks before selling and trading that access to other hackers on cybercriminal forums, leaving network administrators to defend against sophisticated attackers. Watch this session to learn about: • Specific entry points and methods of breaching a network that intruders often sell to other threat actors at a great profit • How the transfer of access can create discontinuity in the TTPs that network security teams must address • How delays in transferred access may actually create an opening for admins to detect the breach and thwart the attack • Using external threat intelligence to proactively identify and remediate these kinds of network breaches before a large-scale attack can be carried out Speaker: Paul Prudomme, Head of Threat Intelligence Advisory at IntSights
