Hacking the Street? FIN4 Likely Playing the Market

Presented by

Barry Vengerik, Principal Threat Intelligence Analyst, Kristen Dennesen, Sr. Threat Intelligence Analyst

About this talk

This week FireEye released a new report called Hacking the Street? FIN4 Likely Playing the Market. This report focuses on a targeted threat group that we call FIN4 (Financially Motivated Group 4), whose tactics are surprisingly low-tech yet insidiously effective at obtaining access to confidential discussions at the highest levels of targeted companies. Our research suggests that FIN4 is likely targeting these companies in order to obtain advance knowledge of “market catalysts,” or events that cause the price of stocks to rise or fall dramatically. Join us for a roundtable discussion with subject matter experts where we’ll talk about the details of the report and explore surrounding topics, to include: • A deep dive into FIN4’s tactics and why they are simple yet surprisingly effective • How FIN4 may be monitoring insider communications for a trading advantage • Why FIN4 is different from other threat groups FireEye tracks • A profile of organizations at risk, and what they can do to protect themselves. All webinar attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the Hacking the Street? report.
