Language:

This talk will provide insight into modern threat groups like The Dark Overlord, MABNA, and Gnostic Players. The discussion will detail the formation of the groups, information on their structure, their core members, the tactics behind their attacks, and why their attacks are so successful. 

As precursor to my upcoming book, “Hunting Cyber Criminals”, I will convey confidential information I have gathered in my personal dealings with these criminals and provide an inside look at several of the companies they have breached and the many clues they unknowingly leave behind.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Understand the type of data available for sale and download on the dark web
  • Learn the process used to collect and build a custom threat intel tool
  • Describe the types of hacker forums on the darkweb, and distinction between their participants
  • Describe who The Dark Overlord is, and why the discovery of their identities is significant
