What: Technical Panel “Advanced Persistent Threats and their Privileged Pathway”
According to U.S. national intelligence director James Clapper, cyber attacks represent a preeminent threat to U.S. security. A newly released industry report by CyberSheath revealed that the theft, misuse and exploitation of privileged accounts is a key tactic in each phase of an APT attack cycle. These accounts provide wide ranging access to every connected system – making them the most powerful, and potentially damaging, accounts in any organization. Attackers know this, which is why they’ve emerged as the priority target and staging ground for major enterprise assaults, such as the successful cyber-attacks on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, states like South Carolina and the Utah Department of Health. This panel will feature cyber security experts deconstructing the ‘privileged account pathway’ hackers have travelled to perpetrate some of the most devastating attacks in recent years, focusing on why securing these accounts is critical to preventing the next APT.

When: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Where: San Diego Convention Center, 111 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101
