Event Information

Title: Become the Threat


82% of data breaches reviewed in the 2022 Verizon Data Breach Incident Report involved the human element. Given such a significant vulnerability, how then can you change your frame of mind to better understand that of a threat actor? And how can the contrasting thought processes make organizations more resilient to intrusions and attacks? The attackers come in all shapes and sizes, and as they become more sophisticated, the security experts who have to battle them need to up their game as well.

One thought? Become a hacker. Learn how to build a malicious threat campaign and the steps needed to create and send a malware campaign for profit. Become the threat actor and then understand the mindset they use to craft malicious attacks. Inhabit the threat actor’s mind and become a better defender.

In this game changer session, the leader of a worldwide malware research team will guide you to:

  • Build out a process for creating and sending a malicious threat campaign for profit
  • Make the decisions of a threat actor and design your plan of attack
  • Analyze a threat actor’s mindset to leverage malicious attacks
