Session Topic:

Prepping the Battlefield: using adversary reconnaissance against them

This talk will discuss how taking a proactive stance around public data and easily discoverable information can shape how intrusion attempts take place and where in the network the initial access is likely to happen. By prepping the battlefield in this way you can change the scope of your breach and remediation efforts. This talk will walk through the life cycle of common intrusions and demonstrate how through active misdirection you can influence the where and how of a breach making incidents easier identify to remediate.
