Talos: Threat Intelligence and the Evolving Threat Landscape

Session Host/Speaker(s)

Cisco's Talos team specializes in early-warning intelligence and threat analysis necessary for defending networks against the ever-changing threat landscape. In this talk we will cover how our team is built, look at some interesting threats and exploits -- take a look at the methods and techniques that both the attackers and defenders use to exploit or mitigate these attacks. We'll take a dive into the depths of writing exploits and finding vulnerabilities and discuss how writing exploits helps defense. We'll point and laugh at hacker fails, and even save some time to field questions.
