The modern Internet has given rise to massive data marketplaces, and the best way to keep you and your clients’ sensitive information off the market is to stay on top of today’s cybersecurity threat landscape.

There’s no better place to do that than Black Hat Asia, which returns to Singapore next month with a boatload of cutting-edge Trainings, Briefings, and Arsenal tools aimed at giving you practical lessons and takeaways you can apply in your own work. Whether it’s your job to respond to incidents or predict and stop them before they happen, there’s something for you at the show.

Notably, “An Independent Investigation on the Biggest Malaysian Data Breach of 2017” is a 50-minute Briefing from Division Zero that will give you an unprecedented analysis of the big data breach that happened in Malaysia in 2017 when the personal data of millions of Malaysians was posted online for sale.

Look forward to a guided tour of the investigation to find out what happened, how the attackers were traced to Netherlands and Hong Kong, and why the search for the threat actor will likely continue to be a challenge for Malaysian authorities.

For more practical takeaways, check out “Investigating Malware Using Memory Forensics - A Practical Approach.” Presented by Cisco Systems, this Briefing will prepare you to face the rising tide of advanced cyberattacks by teaching you the practical concept of memory forensics, and how to use them to detect, investigate and understand the capabilities of malicious software.

In addition, you’ll get practical demos of some of the advanced tricks that modern malware uses to hide from, evade, or thwart modern cybersecurity safeguards. Don’t skip it!

Don't Eat Spaghetti with a Spoon - An Analysis of the Practical Value of Threat Intelligence” is a 50-minute Briefing that will give you a frank analysis of the ability of threat intelligence to predict malicious activity on the Internet.

Presented by SensePost SecureData, this analysis is based on the investigation of over a million Internet threat indicators over a period of six months. Expect to walk away with a better understanding of the value of modern threat intelligence offerings and, in doing so, improve your understanding of their place in your security systems and processes.

Speaking of spaghetti, don’t overlook “PASTA: Portable Automotive Security Testbed with Adaptability”, a newly-announced Black Hat Asia Briefing from Yokohama National University and Toyota. This is less about threat intelligence than threat deterrence; and it offers an exciting look at the future of vehicular cybersecurity. In this Briefing you’ll learn about the portable automotive security testbed with adaptability (PASTA), which is a part of a comprehensive development platform for defending against vehicle cyberattacks.

Black Hat Asia returns to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore March 26-29. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
