Looking Back, Looking Forward: Projects 2020 and 2030

In 2012, Vic and Rik built scenarios for the future of cybercrime. These became the basis for 2020, Trend Micro’s award-winning short movie series. Now that we’ve reached our time horizon and passed “Peak Blade Runner” last November, we’re reviewing how we did, and looking again to the future. In this short talk, we’ll take you through the original project and its results, and introduce you to the next generation of our work.

Do You Have Imposter Blindness? Fighting the Next Generation of Targeted Email Attacks

  • Highly-targeted, low volume impostor email – or business email compromise (BEC) – attacks that impersonate executives and business partners to trick employees are the biggest cyber threat organisations face today.
  • But things are changing. Technology can now surpass people and process initiatives to proactively eliminate fraudulent emails, removing the guesswork for users.
  • What is BEC and EAC? Why are the threats to Stagecoach’s business?
  • Why are BEC and EAC so difficult to prevent?
  • How Stagecoach is working to overcome these challenges

Next Generation Defence: Using Hackers to Beat Hackers

There are many dilemmas in today’s complex cybersecurity world. Year on year increases in cyber-attacks, an increase in the sophistication of these attacks, a widening cybersecurity talent gap, IT security budgets that haven’t kept up with growing demands, and now large remote work forces and social distancing requirements. In this fireside chat, Justin and Mark will discuss an innovative crowdsourced security model that has been deployed at Freshfields. Learn why Freshfields is utilizing an army of ethical hackers to harden their corporate assets; and how security operations have been transformed and simplified, all while quickly deploying safer applications.

Scams and Deception – Inside the mind of the scammer

We talk a great deal around the scam itself, but not about understanding the approach of individuals and why they scam. This session will take a very brief look into the factors that support why people commit deception related crime, and will look at the threats, challenges and responses to the changing fraud landscape. The demand for electronic devices to work and engage in social contact has substantially expanded the attack surface and the target pool has widened for fraudsters, who are also at the beginning of their own transformation!

What’s In Your Software?

Tracking the software and software components an organisation uses in its products and its operations is crucial for responding to emergency threats. However, building and maintaining these Software Bills of Materials (SBOMs) is very challenging, especially across large enterprises. In this session, Alyssa Miller discusses the hidden threats in the Software Supply Chain, and analyzes some of the unique challenges of open source software, IoT and Medical devices, and Industrial Control Systems. She’ll share real world strategies and risk mitigations that organizations should employ to address these threats and reduce the risks associated with them.
