PLENARY PRESENTATION: THE HIDDEN ADVERSARY. ADVANCED DETECTION OF ATTACKERS ON THE NETWORK USING DECEPTION.
Regardless of their motives, cybercriminals continue to breach perimeter defences of financial services organisations, usually remaining undetected for months. Increased perimeter security appears to have bred better attackers, more adept at finding ways behind organisational lines. A pragmatic ‘assumed breach’ mentality breeds innovative thinking in cyber security. By turning our attention to finding attackers already on the network, we can reduce the extent and severity of consequential damage and facilitate faster recovery. Deception, an age old discipline in every adversary based discipline, offers cyber teams the means to identify and detect advanced attackers on the network and effect the correct remediations.
