The Unprotected Threat Vector

Threat actors have long established mobile capabilities to succeed in their missions, be it financial gain, state espionage, or state sponsored activity. Lookout has been tracking a rise of mobile threat activity using the world’s largest mobile dataset. These activities are typically the tip of the spear for more advanced campaigns such as credential theft, stealing of personal data, surveillance, stealing MFA tokens from enterprises, and ultimately leading to data exfiltration of sensitive data. In this presentation, we will cover some of the latest trends, attackers, and campaigns that utilize the mobile vector as their initial point of entry and how to defend against them.

Denying Influence and Disrupting Adversaries 

 The world needs a safer internet. Information warfare, scams and fraud, and a growing lack of public trust create a challenge for a global population reliant on the internet for their news, commerce, health, and safety. Impersonations of government officials and military leaders, fraudulent representations of brands, and information leaks on the surface, deep, and dark web are at the nexus of digital risk. Zero Fox works with our customers to identify risks to their external security, exposing and disrupting threat actors and denying them the opportunity to influence and exploit constituents and partners. This Tech Talk will focus on the methods and best practices for identifying external cybersecurity risks and protecting organizations against harm.
