Topic – Turning the Tide: Dragging Criminals Out of the Shadows

Criminals actively seek data to exploit. From stolen credentials to credit card and account data to PII. This data is used to break into accounts and systems and to target victims with a believable pretext.  Let’s flip the tables on the adversary. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate how to leverage criminal’s data to unmask the attacker’s identities and criminal infrastructure.  We will also discuss how to use this same data to proactively prevent account takeovers (ATOs).  Ryan is a senior-level cyber-security expert whose previous roles include Deputy CISO for the State of Minnesota, Mananger of Cyber Intelligence and Analysis for Deloitte, and Manager of Cyber Threat Intelligence for Target.
