Insight to the Underground Hacker Marketplace
Speaker: Alex Tilley, Senior Security Researcher, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit
Duration: 60 Minutes
Imagine a marketplace where illegal vendors offer a wide range of goods, tools, and training to enable a hacker to exploit or breach unsuspecting individuals, groups or organizations.
Furthermore, imagine the walls of this marketplace lined with advertisements offering services and information.
The point is, the underground marketplace is booming and only getting bigger, more sophisticated, and competitive. Knowing what you and your organization are up against and where your information could potentially be going and what it’s worth is a great way to help prioritize what you protect.
Alex Tilley of SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Intelligence team and former Australian Federal Police Senior Technical Analyst, will walk us through the Underground Hacker Marketplace and discuss the important issues and what it means to Australian organisations. This unique look into the marketplace will show you how threat actors organise and resource themselves for the tasks they set. Furthermore we will be looking at the kind of data they are selling on after it has been stolen. This eye opening topic will leave you informed about a place not too many people get to see.
