Cyber Intelligence: What’s new about the threat
Throughout 2017, the stolen data proved to be valuable weapons for opponents as shown by the story”Wannacry”. Indeed, they facilitated the most destructive attacks of the year when stolen Cyber-espionage tools quickly integrated targeted intrusion and criminal campains, including Wannacry and NotPetya.
Characteristics, propagation mode, evolutions and the intensification of the cyberthreat are factors whose understanding is essential to build an effective cyber defense. We propose in our workshop a presentation of the threat landscape by describing the attackers’modes of operation and the actions to be taken.
