Advanced Adversaries and Learning How to Stop Them – A CyberSecurity Intel Briefing

In an ever changing threat landscape, security teams are struggling to understand who the top threat actors are and how to stop them. Threat intelligence should be the driver behind your cybersecurity strategy and this crucial information is invaluable for organizations looking to update their response and detection programs as they defend against increasingly sophisticated advanced persistent threats.

  • Spotlight on latest threats and who is responsible
  • Effectively using cyber threat intelligence
  • What can you do to minimize your risk of a breach

CrowdStrike tracks eCrime groups such as CARBON SPIDER. CARBON SPIDER focuses on the theft of funds and financial information for the purpose of monetization. CARBON SPIDER has been leveraging Bateleur JavaScript backdoor since November of 2017. Bateleur is a JavaScript (JS) implant that CrowdStrike has observed being delivered via a spear phishing campaign. Interested? CrowdStrike will be highlighting the latest tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) being used by adversaries today.
