Presentation Topic: Shifting Sands — Shoring up Cyber-defense in a Rapidly Changing Threat Landscape
The security threat landscape is constantly evolving, and Microsoft has deep data insights from the 8 trillion security signals that we analyze every day to over a decade tracking and analyzing software vulnerabilities, exploits, malware, unwanted software, and attacker group methods and tactics via the Security Intelligence Report.
Attackers use a variety of dirty tricks, both new (coin-mining) and old (phishing), in their ongoing quest to steal data and resources from customers and organizations. Hybrid attacks, like the Ursnif campaign, living off the land attacks (Astraroth) and blended social and technical approaches.
