Level Up Your Data Forensics Game at Black Hat USA

Learn about the latest supply chain attacks, red team threats, and "deep fake" detection tricks at the premier cybersecurity event in Las Vegas this August.

The threat landscape is always shifting in cybersecurity and there’s no better place to check in with colleagues and learn the latest tricks and techniques than Black Hat USA in Las Vegas.

Attend this premier cybersecurity event and check out the Briefings Data Forensics & Incident Response track which offers techniques that will help you understand how an attack unfolded, if and when a breach occurred, and how it can be prevented in the future. Fantastic Red-Team Attacks and How to Find Them promises to reveal prevalent and ongoing gaps across organizations uncovered by testing defenses against a broad spectrum of attacks via Red Canary’s Atomic Red Team testing framework. Plus, you’ll learn the open-sourced Event Query Language for creating high signal-to-noise analytics. In a live demonstration, you’ll see how these powerful but easy-to-craft analytics can catch adversarial behaviors that are commonly missed in organizations today.

In Detecting Deep Fakes with Mice you’ll see how researchers worked to train different machines and creatures to detect real vs. fake speech in “deep fake” videos. For machines, you’ll look at two approaches based on machine learning: one based on game theory called generative adversarial networks (GAN), and one based on mathematical depth-wise convolutional neural networks (Xception).

For biological systems, researchers gathered a broad range of human subjects as well as mice, which don’t understand the words, but respond to the stimulus of sounds and can be trained to recognize real vs. fake phonetic construction. Researchers theorize that this may be advantageous in detecting the subtle signals of improper audio manipulation, without being swayed by the semantic content of the speech. In this 25-Minute Briefing you’ll learn how they evaluated the relative performance of all four discriminator groups (GAN, Xception, humans, and mice) using a "deep fakes" data set recently published by Google.

The Enemy Within: Modern Supply Chain Attacks take you behind the scenes of today’s cloud-powered industries with a Microsoft security expert. You’ll learn about previously undisclosed supply chain attacks including techniques and objectives of adversaries, mechanisms that were effective in blunting attacks, and the sometimes-comical challenges of dealing with one of the most complex assets to defend: developers.

For more information about these Briefings and many more check out the Black Hat USA Briefings page, which is regularly updated with new content as we get closer to the event!

Black Hat USA will return to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
