Rootkits and How They Evade Detection

In this session Dr. Wesley Peck will provide an overview of rootkits, how they work, the harm they cause, and how they avoid detection. The session will take you through a real world rootkit called Drovorub that came from threat actors in Russia, as disclosed by the FBI and the NSA. 

Innovate, Attack, Defend, Repeat

In this session Jason Rogers will provide an overview of the modern security stack and why threat actors often outpace security innovation. The session will also cover how concepts like zero trust and behavioral attestation can help reverse the current trends. During this session you will see a demonstration of a rootkit compromising a system defended by a modern EDR/XDR solution.
