GOVERNEMENT STAGE HOSTED BY DESC   FUTURE TALKS GISEC MAINSTAGE Unmasking the Invisible: Exposing Lurking Threats with Behavioral Analytics
Today, our intrusion detection and response capabilities are signature-based. These signatures look for known TTP''s and are very good at mitigating threats with known attack signatures. However, advanced attackers use Zero-Day vulnerabilities with no known signatures, and they are coming after your identity. Additionally, the use of MFA-Fatigue attacks and API-Key compromises are becoming common to gain access to your secure enclaves. Once inside, they are able to "live off the land", using tools provisioned for your admins without triggering any alarm bells. Behavior-based detection uses enhanced AI/ML capabilities to baseline user behavior. They normalize user behavior over a period of time and alert based on deviations in behavior. Augmenting your Signature-based detection with Behavior-based detection can help reduce attacker dwell time in your networks.

Identity Verification Providers (IVPs) are an essential piece of many financial workstreams for KYC/AML. IVPs are also prevalent for age-gating, account recovery, and limiting account creation. The reduction of customer friction in this space leads to corner-cutting; usability and support of these services outweighs the need for a watertight product. In this talk, I will demonstrate how, with around $800 US, it is possible to defeat all of the compensating controls on modern IVPs.
