It will also delve into the underground economy and explore how the stolen data is stolen, used and ultimately exploited to the criminals' benefit. (With live malware demo!).

Anatomy of an Attack: How cyber criminals threaten our security

The Anatomy of an Attack dives into the who, what, how and why of the underground digital economy. There are many different adversaries in the modern malware world and to properly defend our networks we need to know as much about our enemy as possible. This presentation is from the perspective of a researcher sharing what's been learned about the adversary and some ideas on how we might better protect ourselves.
