A Wizards Guide to Security in the Cloud

Ell Marquez, Linux and Security Advocate, Intezer

About this talk

A Horcrux is a powerful object in which a Dark wizard or witch [attacker] has hidden a fragment of his or her soul [code] for the purpose of attaining immortality [persistence]. Creating a Horcrux gives one the ability to anchor their own soul [code] to earth[environment], if the body [process] is destroyed. In this session, we will come to understand how attackers are able to not only compromise our cloud environments but also maintain persistence—while our security teams are distracted by a mountain of false alerts. If we focus on the root cause of all cyber attacks: unauthorized spells, wait, I mean unauthorized code.
