On Saturday January 20 at noon, check out Cooper Quentin and Eva Galperin from EFF's Cybersecurity Team, along with Lookout Media's Mike Flossman for their talk:
Nation-State Espionage: Hunting Multi-Platform APTs on a Global Scale
As the modern threat landscape evolves, so have the players. Cyber-warfare has become so profitable that even lesser resourced nations are entering the arena. This talk will discuss an advanced persistent threat (APT) nation-state actor (to be named later) who is exploiting targets globally across multiple platforms, including mobile devices.
ShmooCon is an annual east coast hacker convention hell-bent on offering three days of an interesting atmosphere for demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software and hardware solutions, and open discussions of critical infosec issues. The first day is a single track of speed talks called One Track Mind. The next two days bring three tracks: Build It, Belay It and Bring It On.
