An exclusive fireside with head of Google's TAG (Threat Analysis Group). Attendees can expect a frank discussion on the science of threat intelligence, the cloudy nature of the APT landscape, the surge in big-game ransomware and nation-state malware activity worth tracking.

Organizations around the world and in all verticals are rapidly increasing the risk of successful cyber-attacks as they drive business innovation through the use of enterprise and industrial IoT services and devices. Threat actors recognize these types of devices as some of the least secure being put into production and they have made taking advantage of them part of their standard playbook.

Section 52, Microsoft Defender for IoT's Security Research group, will share insights about Mikrotik device exposure risks as well as our recent discoveries how unpatched Mikrotik are actively being exploited. We’ll discuss a number of malware families, their persistency mechanisms, and the protocols abused to communicate with command-and-control centers. Finally, we will demonstrate a new open-source tool, which can be used to access your devices for the applicable vulnerabilities so that you can update your devices and become resistant to such attacks.
