RVAsec 2013: Dan Holden -- DDoS and Modern Threat Motives

July 12, 2013
Slides: http://rvasec.com/slides/2013/Holden-Advanced_Threat_Motives_Infosec.pdf In the past fifteen years, we've gone from dial-up Internet to massive high bandwidth pipes that have connected and even flattened the world. Along with this growth and new infrastructure the threats have also matured going from Web defacement and take downs to cybercrime, cyber warfare, intellectual theft, and infrastructure attacks. In many ways, the Internet has become the network and availability its lifeblood. Availability is as critical to an organization today as electricity. If an organization is taken offline, they can lose the ability to generate revenue from their customers, or the ability to access cloud based data and applications. This talk will focus on the growth of the Internet, computing infrastructure, how these technologies have flattened the world and changed geo-political interaction, and how traditional defences have come about and are now bypassed. The other important aspect covered will be the multitude of motives and different attack scenarios from advanced threats, hacktivism, competitive take-outs, cyber-crime and cyber warfare.
