Workshop Title

Breaking the Cyber Kill Chain

Abstract

The current generation of the attacks compromise the victims infrastructure (computing host(s)) rendering it either as a primary or secondary victim of the complex attack. In either case the attack may start with a simple reconnaissance and/or profiling of the targeted users and persists through the key phases of exploiting weakness; pivoting; data exfiltration; and in some cases DDOS. The sequence of the complex attack is most commonly referred to as "Cyber Kill Chain". We will follow the attack life cycle to see what can be done to Prepare, Detect, Prevent, Mitigate the attack and in the event of the incident carrying out the successful evidence collection & Forensics. The mode of the workshop will be short presentation, demo of the attack sequence, followed by some protection framework demo.
