The Importance of Relevant, Timely, and Qualitative Intelligence Analysis - Aamil AK GrrCON 2019 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Importance of Relevant, Timely, and Qualitative Intelligence Analysis
Aamil AK
GrrCON 2019

Every day, researchers and analysts are bombarded with new sets of data and information pertaining to threats and adversaries. This is not very different from what intelligence analysts encounter in physical terrain warfare. In both cases, intelligence can only succeed in looking beyond the ?flavor of the week? by applying timely, qualitative analysis to relevant information. In this presentation we will discuss: Examples of observing common and older tactics and vulnerabilities that are actively being leveraged (instead of theoretical risks) Using historical information to make well-informed assessments of future adversary courses of action Applying qualitative-based risk assessments to adversaries based on observed capabilities and intent Utilizing non-technical methods of intelligence collection such as human intelligence We?ll also walk through real-life examples, including our hands-on experience in confirming tactics used by hacktivists during an actual campaign, and tracing suspected ties between a Middle Eastern paramilitary organization and a domestic cyber adversary.
