The Attacker's Perspective

With an ever-expanding attack surface, outsmarting the attacker continues to be increasingly difficult for defense. Understanding how attackers think, what motivates them to damage and how they outmanoeuvre defensive mechanisms will help switch the asymmetry.  With a uniquely in-depth understanding of the attacker perspective, Assaf Mischari, Head of Research at Team8 and former CTO of the Israeli Defense Force's Technology & Intelligence Unit 8200, will present why connectivity empowers a less experienced attacker to make significant impact. Covering topics such as automation, anomaly detection, data in use, and AI, Assaf will demonstrate how understanding attacker motivations can help defense gain the upper hand.
