Black Hat Europe: Get the Nation-State Perspective on Cybersecurity

Attendees of Black Hat Europe in London next week will hear about worldwide cybersecurity developments and challenges from the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace's Marina Kaljurand.

Are you ready for Black Hat Europe in London next week? It promises to be jam-packed with valuable learning opportunities! So as you’re planning out your schedule be sure to leave time between seeing old friends and making new ones to attend some of this year’s most intriguing Briefings, Trainings, and Arsenal demos.

Most notably, check out this year’s keynote, Developments and Challenges in Cybersecurity from the Nation-State Perspective. Presented by Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace chair and former Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand, this premier talk will address the lessons learned from the politically-motivated cyberattacks Estonia weathered in 2007.

It’s a unique opportunity to learn from firsthand accounts of nation-state cyberwarfare. Kaljurand intends to shed light on the challenges we face in 2018/2019, the role of states and other stakeholders in global cybersecurity, and what the future holds. She’ll also introduce you to the work of the Global Commission on Stability in Cyberspace, which is a multi-stakeholder model that contributes to international discussion and policy-making. Don’t miss it!

If you’re after more in-depth learning, know that there’s still time to register for many of the 2-Day Trainings next week, including Mandiant’s Windows Enterprise Incident Response. This intensive course is designed to teach fundamental investigative techniques needed to respond to today's landscape of threat actors and intrusion scenarios. Completely redeveloped with all new material in 2016, the class is built upon a series of hands-on labs that highlight the phases of a targeted attack, key sources of evidence, and forensic analysis know-how.

Stop by the Black Hat Europe Arsenal to enjoy demos of some potential new tools, including VirusTotal Graph: Investigation, which is a  free visualization tool built on top of the VirusTotal data set. The tool helps you study the relationship between files, urls, domains and IP addresses through an easy navigation interface. By exploring and expanding each of the nodes in your graph, you can build the network and quickly see the connections across the samples you are studying.

You might also want to check out Kurukshetra, a web framework to host reasonably complex secure coding challenges. Developed with the aim of being the first open-source secure coding framework, it’s composed of two components:

  • A backend framework written in PHP, which manages and leverages the underlying docker system to provide a secure sandbox for the challenge execution;
  • Tthe frontend, which is a user-facing web app providing necessary controls, for the admin to host and modify the challenges, and the user to execute and view the result of each of his input.

To close out this year's conference, join Black Hat founder Jeff Moss and members of the esteemed Black Hat Review Board for an insightful conversation on the most pressing issues facing the InfoSec community. This special Locknote: Conclusions and Key Takeaways from Black Hat Europe 2018 Briefing, held at the end of the final day (Thursday, December 6) will review key takeaways coming out of Black Hat Europe and how these trends will impact future security strategies.

Black Hat Europe returns to The Excel in London December 3-6, 2018. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
