|Five bad guy categories and their differing methods, aims and threats
David Perry, Threat Strategist at F-Secure
David Perry has been working in
computer security since 1990. He has presented all over the world, at
conferences like Infosec Europe, RSA, Virus Bulletin, AVAR and EICAR.
He is a research fellow of the Anti Phishing Work Group and was chosen
a SUPERSTAR of Cyber SECURITY by CRN magazine. He has worked in the
White House (under four different presidents) in the pentagon and in
NATO. David is a frequent media expert on security issues. He lives in
Huntington Beach, California.
One of the biggest mistakes you can
make when defending your network is to assume that all of your attacks
are going to be in a single paradigm. Although there are new
schema introduced all the time, and new exploits and new
vulnerabilities, the old ones do not always go away. Case in point:
many people like to say that you don't see actual viruses any more but
that is just not true. There are as many viruses or more than
there were at the peak of the virus years, but they have become
overshadowed by a much greater tidal wave of non replicating
malware. David Perry has refined the players in the world of
threats to five basic groups, and will discuss in detail just how they
differ, how they overlap, how they are the same and what threat they
might mean to YOU.
