Mitchell’s seminar dove deep into the anatomy of advanced threat actor command and control systems, along with a review of countermeasures these threat actors use to evade network detection. Among the threat actor command and control systems that were covered and demonstrated included a few samples of captured malware. Mitchell and Windsor also discussed how to identifyRemote Access Tools (RAT) without using traditional signatures or indicators of compromise, and they went through a demonstration for RAT tools that were captured within the last year.

Meanwhile, Isles (who advises clients on security program assessment, planning, and reporting) joined a group of speakers that included Scott Carlson (Partner, Seyfarth Shaw, LLP), Ed McAndrew (Partner, Ballard Spahr LLP), and Chris Dale (Founder, E-Disclosure Information Project). The discussion centered around best practices for preparing for and responding to privacy and security threats. Isles and the rest of the panel outlined how cyber risk is changing, and offered up approaches for managing and monitoring cyber risk. The panel concluded with discussion around how cybersecurity programs can become a business differentiator.
