Predicting Tomorrow's Threats with Today's Intelligence

Scott Dowsett, VP WW Sales Engineering, Anomali
If you could predict the future how would you? A good first step is to look at the past. Threat events are occurring at a rapid pace affecting how we live, work and even play. This presentation will speak to utilizing threat intel to predict possible future threats.

Evolving Threat Hunting to Adversary Hunting Using Threat Intelligence

Sumukh Tendulkar, VP of Product Marketing, Cybersixgill
The practice of threat hunting has helped security teams detect and reduce dwell time of stealth threats. But most hunting expeditions focus on threats - leaving the adversary free to launch another set of attacks with different tactics. We need to evolve threat hunting into a hunt for the adversary. The deep and dark web, and other closed sources, provide valuable insights into the motivations and activities of threat actors. Over the course of this session, we will understand the motivation behind the actions of these actors, their social networks, and how to anticipate their next steps.

Best Practices of Utilizing Threat Intel to Pin Down Ransomware

Christopher Elisan, VP of Threat Intelligence, Polyswarm
With the acceleration of digital transformation across industries and the widespread transition to remote work, ransomware attacks experienced triple-digit growth in 2020, becoming the most serious and prominent cyber threat to date. As their complexity increases, it becomes even more important to use the most up-to-date threat intelligence, follow the breadcrumbs, and connect the dots to paint a full picture of the attack, so organizations can better respond to these types of threats.
