Advanced Persistent Threats: Incidents and road ahead

Speaker:  Gaurav Somani – Ajmer, India
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


In this talk, we discuss the upcoming cyber security threat, advanced persistent threat (APT) which is very hard to detect due to its zero-day nature. Zero-day vulnerabilities do not get detected using traditional signature based malware detection approaches. In this talk, we discuss various recent APT-based attacks and their effects. We shall also see the important differences between traditional malware based attacks and the APT-based attacks. We shall also dive into one particular aspect of zero-day vulnerability and dwell time. APT-based attacks are characterized using their multiple steps by which they achieve their aims. We shall also see the contributions in the state-of-the-art and comment on our contributions in this direction, at the end of the talk.
