December 2015 – Last Call for Attackers – You Don’t Have to Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here

Topic: Last Call for Attackers – You Don’t Have to Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here

Summary:

It’s no secret that most targeted organizations are compromised for months or years before they discover for themselves, or are notified by an outside party, that an intrusion has occurred. But once the lights go on, how long should it take to kick out the bad guys?

These attackers are constantly evolving their TTPs using strategies to circumvent common defenses such as IDS/IPS, whitelisting solutions, DLP, and two-factor authentication VPN solutions. To make matters worse, they usually hide in plain site, using legitimate credentials.

The CrowdStrike remediation team has developed strategies to combat these adversaries and will share some of those countermoves in this session.  We’ll discuss real word cases we’ve recently worked and show you the defensive strategies we used to counter Bears and Pandas and Kittens in the wild.
