Threat Data, Information, and Intelligence: What’s the Difference?
There’s a huge difference between threat data, information, and intelligence, and understanding the difference is essential to getting the most out of your threat intelligence platform. As we progress from data to information to intelligence, the volume of outputs reduces while the value of those outputs increases. This talk will take a look at the differences between threat data, information, and intelligence, and the role of skilled analysts in moving from one to the next.

Better understand how to systematically enhance your cyber security program and reduce your organization’s threat profile exponentially. This talk is a must if you’d like to take a more proactive approach to improve security mechanisms, close vulnerabilities, and stop attacks.

6:00 – 7:00 Andrei Barysevich, Director of Advanced Collection at Recorded Future
Andrei specializes in threat intelligence on highly restrictive criminal communities and he oversees proactive intelligence operations. A native Russian speaker, Andrei was previously an independent e-commerce fraud researcher, and a private consultant for the FBI’s New York Cybercrime field office.

Andrei’s work and commentary has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Motherboard, and numerous other publications. For the past 13 years, he has been involved in multiple high-profile international cases resulting in successful convictions of members of crime syndicates operating global reshipping, money laundering, and bank fraud schemes.

Workshop “A Lifecycle of Cybercrime: A Glimpse into the Mindset of a Typical Cybercriminal”
The common misperception of cybercriminals as “larger than life,” incredibly clever, well-off, and unreachable to law enforcement has created a romanticized modern conception of cybercrime, luring a steady supply of ambitious recruits into various restricted and illicit online communities. In this research, we will introduce the architects of the first major Russian-speaking underground community, who singlehandedly created a framework of international cybercriminal collaboration.

We will walk you through a lifecycle of cybercrime and introduce the administrator of a popular international forum. Additionally, you will learn about some of the prominent fraud marketplaces, various platforms, and tools available to online criminals. In addition, you will get insides how cybercriminals thinking and how you should include these aspects in your SOC strategy.

7:00 – open end Apéro Riche & Networking
The speakers will be onsite for Q&A
