Cybersecurity Experts to Lead Conference Sessions from October 21-22.

Herndon, VA - Thursday October 16, 2014 – Cybersecurity experts from Nuix, a technology company that enables people to make fact-based decisions from unstructured data, will headline four conference sessions during Canada’s SecTor IT security conference on October 21-22, 2014.  Members of the Nuix Cyber Threat Analysis Team will address critical security issues threatening businesses and organizations worldwide:

  • How'd That End Up On Pastebin? Organizations that feel safe with vulnerability scanning, firewalls, anti-virus and carefully considered risk prioritization will want to reconsider how effective these controls really are in light of the patterns revealed by these investigations. Practical recommendations will be made about how to help better secure the enterprise using a better understanding of attacker tactics. Ryan Linn, Principal Consultant – Penetration Testing
  • Cybercrime 101. While many businesses are improving their overall security, attackers are making adjustments to avoid detection, becoming more creative in their approach to the attacks and leveraging more complex attack sequences. Cybercrime 101 will cover these attack vectors, and illustrate how they work in the real world. The presentation will conclude with critical information regarding how your security posture will need to evolve to address more effectively the ever changing threat landscape. Chris Pogue, Senior Vice President, Cyber Threat Analysis
  • The Good, The Bad and The Idiots: How Hackers get caught. Everyone sees the daily stories about hackers stealing personal data and credit cards but the media moves on to the newest breach the next week. What happens to these cases and the criminals behind them? This presentation will cover law enforcement (the good), criminals and their motives (the bad) and the dumb things hackers do to get themselves caught (the idiots). We will talk about malware, social media, the criminal underground and a handful of other items related to digital crimes investigation. Chris Pogue and Grayson Lenik, Principal Consultant – DFIR
  • POS Malware Evolved. A discussion on the shifts the security and research community has witnessed by point of sale (PoS) malware. We'll look at witnessed trends, how malware families are related and demonstrate how these malware families work at a fundamental level using some simple live demos. Finally, we'll wrap up the discussion by providing insight into the newest family of PoS malware, and talk about what the future of PoS malware and attacks holds. Josh Grunzweig, Principal Consultant – Malware Analysis
