Lessons Learned: Emerging Adversary Playbooks presented at CactusCon 2018

by Nicholai Piagentini,

Summary : Based on observed activities across thousands of enterprises worldwide we will look at how techniques and tactics of adversary groups have evolved over the past year. We will examine the rise of cryptocurrency mining for profit as well as the practice of “living off the land” in the later attack phases. Additionally, we will examine the impact that IaaS and PaaS services have had on the resurgence of server focused attacks. All data comes from actual samples detected in the wild.
