This presentation was designed to provide insight into the world of Advanced Persistent Threats, the damage they wield, and methods to combat them. The speaker will seek to cast a light on why these often simple and sometimes antiquated attack techniques are proving so effective at taking advantage of some of the biggest powerhouses of industry, technology and government. The presentation concludes with analysis of the most effective technology and process countermeasures available to combat these ongoing threats.
