Cyber Threats 2020: State of the Art & Emerging Defense Paradigms

Presented by

Sachin Deodhar, Technical Director of Threat Intelligence, APAC Region, Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center

About this talk

From an incident responder perspective, the cyber threat landscape today, and in the coming years, appear forbidding and treacherous. With the rise in the adversaries’ use of sophisticated trojans to target organizations with techniques to bypass two-factor authentication, destructive malware to thwart forensics, and living off the land techniques to evade attack vendor and persist longer we are compelled to develop equally innovative means to combat such threats. In this webinar you will understand the emerging (attackers') tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that pose serious challenges to current defense paradigms; in particular: 1. Examine ATMITCH campaign targeting financial institutions with a focus on subverting and compromising ATM terminals. 2. Understand the complex and sophisticated Emotet Trojan wreaking havoc on the Financial Sector. 3. Understand limitations of blocking PowerShell and how adversaries can run "PowerShell without PowerShell". 4. Come to terms with the fact that two-factor authentication is broken. We will describe one technique using a reverse proxy as a man-in-the-middle for two-factor authentication bypass and account takeover.
