Advanced Persistent Threats - Tactics and Tools



April 30, 2015

Tactics, tools and procedures of advanced persistent threat actors and cyber criminals.

Why are they so successful despite the billions of dollars spent in IT security each year?

During this presentation, we will also dwell upon the world of Threat Intelligence, and the importance of "attribution" by exposing real-world APT actors.

About the Chapter

What are the benefits of joining the Chapter?
Black and White Globe

Established in 1991, the mission of the Ottawa Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is to provide a friendly, interactive environment for those with an interest in information security. Through meetings, guest speakers, discussion forums, this website and the concerted efforts of our members, we strive to accomplish this goal. These local Chapter level benefits are augmented by the advantages of membership in ISSA International which provides an e-newsletter, educational online webinars, and partnerships with other IT security organizations many of whom offer discounts to ISSA members.

All of this is aimed towards helping members be more effective in their work both technically and personally, and towards providing professional development opportunities.
