Attacker Innovation: The Good, The Bad, and the Next Steps for Defenders

Event Description:

In a recent Black Hat presentation, two researchers described 2017 as the "Summer of Lateral Movement Automation." The speed of offensive innovations has outpaced the defenders' ability to keep up, and this dynamic has accelerated dramatically over the past 14 months. We'll take a tour of these advances in automated attack tools, and discuss ways to leverage those tools to gain a better understanding of our own security posture.
