Remember the data attack of Sony Pictures by bad actors in North Korea in 2014? Did you know they were also behind the 2017 WannaCry ransomware that leveraged bugs in outdated Windows applications? Do you know where credential harvesters like Krak get their personally-identifiable information? The Federal Bureau of Investigation just issued a request to reboot routers to try to disable Russian malware. This presentation will review insider and external cyber threats like these and how they relate to U.S. businesses and organizations. We will also learn what makes targets vulnerable. Who hacks and why? We will discuss this, protection best practices, and the role played by legal enforcement in protecting us and our businesses.
Facilitator Special Agent Michelle Pirtle, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Pittsburgh Cyber Crime Task Force, will provide insight into the Cyber Underground, focusing on what organized criminal groups do with valuable information once a U.S. target is exploited. Where possible, examples from recent cases will be used to illustrate this. Michelle worked for over six years as Infragard Pittsburgh Members Alliance FBI Coordinator.
