The Threat Landscape of Today and Tomorrow

Presented by

Tyler Moffitt, Sr Threat Research Analyst at Webroot, Inc.

About this talk

Today's advanced malware is increasingly difficult to remove and often even harder to detect in the first place. In this presentation, we examine the modern threat landscape and discuss the shortcomings of traditional antivirus; as well as how organizations can stay ahead of the malware curve. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what your traditional AV is capable of blocking since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Either through social engineering or advanced evasive tactics, traditional antivirus technology is fighting an uphill battle to defend against it. Learn about highlights and revelations from Blackhat 2015; specifically about the 1.4 million Chrysler vehicle hack, how windows software update services can be hacked, the future of biometrics, and the progress encrypting ransomware. We also will talk about updates on law enforcement's attempts to catch cybercriminals. We will also discuss the startling trends we've seen from phishing attacks and mobile malware and what it means for an end user.
