Using Machine Learning for Threat Hunting – The What, Why and How
This talk uncovers how machine learning can be used to augment each step of the threat hunting process, from data collection, hypothesis creation, threat visualization, to reporting and coming to intelligent conclusions. It explains how machine learning can rapidly speed up the time to meaning, where in the Pyramid of Pain this process sits, what benefits proactive threat hunting delivers and how to turn a one-off threat hunt into an automated process. Tips and tricks to augment the threat hunting process will be provided - as well as results from real-life threat hunts (APT detections) using machine learning.

Busting Ransomware With a Bunch of Bytes
Sometimes all the information that we have about a new attack is just a bunch of bytes in the form of a memory dump. In this session, Gerardo Fernandez of VirusTotal will walk through the process from identifying a suspicious sample to unfold the campaign this malware belongs. There are many ways to keep track of fresh malicious activity, but when we don't have much information or we just want to keep a lookout for future events, Threat Intel is the best tool we have to get the whole picture and react accordingly.

YARA Bootcamp
In this "bootcamp" session, you'll have chance to learn how YARA can help you identify and classify malware that may have found its way inside your corporate network.

Described as the "the pattern matching Swiss knife for malware researchers", YARA is multi-platform, and  can run on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and can be used through its command-line interface or from your own Python scripts with the yara-python extension.

Cyberattacks Don’t Happen on Paper
Cyberattacks don’t happen on paper. Even if your business has an incident response plan, there’s a risk that it’s been filed away for a rainy day. But when that rainy day is actually a hurricane-force storm that results in lighting strikes and everything catching fire, there’s a chance that we’d all wish we were a bit more familiar with how we’re supposed to respond.

So what are the best ways to make that happen? Can actual cyber crises really be prepared for? Who should be involved in making sure that businesses are both ready and resilient enough to carry on in the event of ransomware, a spear-phishing attack, or a data breach?

In this session, expert Chris Pace of Immersive Labs discusses why the best laid plans for incident response often go awry and explores why human cyber readiness is truly the most critical element in the event of a cyber crisis.

Detect Emerging Industry Threats to Proactively Protect Your Brand
Too often, organizations are blindsided by cyber attacks targeting their brand. Fraudulent websites, leaked data, and command-and-control attacks are all examples of how threat actors can attack your brand. The repercussions can be devastating — ranging from customer distrust to massive financial losses. Security professionals have limited visibility outside of their own organizations’ network, and of the nefarious corners of the web where cybercriminals are known to launch these attacks.

Proactive brand protection requires up-to-the-minute security intelligence and operational mitigations that can be applied to help protect your organization from these threats. In this session we will walk you through how to use Recorded Future’s Brand Intelligence and Threat Intelligence modules to detect emerging threats to your industry and your peers. We will also demonstrate examples of the migitations Recorded Future provides to help you proactively defend against emerging risks threatening your brand and infrastructure.

Evolving Threat Hunting to Adversary Hunting: Using Dark Web and Closed Sources to Understand the Motivation, Social Network and Next Action of an Adversary
Threat hunting practice has helped security teams detect and reduce dwell time of stealth threats. But most hunting expeditions focus on threats - leaving the adversary free to launch another set of attacks with different tactics. We need to evolve threat hunting into a hunt for the adversary. The deep and dark web, and other closed sources, provide valuable insights into the motivations and activities of threat actors. Over the course of this session, we will understand the motivation behind the actions of these actors, their social networks, and how to anticipate their next steps.

Cyber Crisis Simulator: You’re in Control
Another day, another breach. Businesses have never been more acutely aware of the increased likelihood of data being compromised as a result of a cyberattack. Formulating response plans and crafting policies are top of mind for security and risk professionals, but these efforts can never really factor in the human element when the worst happens.

How do time and pressure impact on decision-making? How can organizations be sure that the right people are involved in breach response and know what the wider business impact is?
This session replays an incident simulation based on a recent real-world cyberattack. Immersive Labs Cyber Crisis Simulator is designed to simulate the tightrope to be walked in responding to a breach when dealing with technical attribution, public relations, legal obligations and more.

[Workshop] Threat Hunting with VirusTotal - Black Belt Edition (2 hours)
Threat Hunting is one of the most popular techniques used by security analysts for all kinds of investigations. It is both science and, to some degree, inspiration. However in the last years the security industry has developed new tools and techniques that can dramatically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our Threat Hunting. In particular, similarity and automatic Yara generation are key when dealing with large amounts of data.

In this workshop we will go through the process of Threat Hunting and showcase how to leverage new techniques available for analysts to step our research up to the next level.
