In partnership with Infosecurity Magazine, Crowdstrike is hosting an important breakfast briefing looking at how nation-state cyberattacks find their way into the mainstream criminal world and how to defend against them.

The two biggest differentiators between a nation-state actor and a cybercriminal are capital and time. A nation-state actor can invest a significant amount of R&D to target an organisation and isn’t driven by a profit motive. Yet techniques adopted by nation-state actors invariably find their way into the mainstream criminal world and are therefore an indicator of what to prepare for.

Security teams in the private and public sector are increasingly recognizing the need to actively ‘hunt’ for threats targeting their organizations. In this briefing and by use of exemplar real-world attacks, we outline the critical steps of defence and proactive threat hunting that must occur if companies are to aggressively seek out sophisticated threat behaviours that elude even the best automated security systems.

This briefing is suitable for information security decision-makers including CISO, CIO, SOC manager; mid-level information security management including SOC managers and technical information security practitioners including SOC analysts. CPE credits are available for this workshop.
