Five bad guy categories and their differing methods, aims and threats

Guest Speaker:

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.
