Valencia, 11 September 2019.- S2 Grupo will participate on 12 and 13 September at RootedCON Valencia, to be held at ADEIT – Fundación Universidad Empresa de la Universitat de València. This has become one of the most relevant national computer security congresses that will bring together leading experts in cybersecurity and hacking.
S2 Grupo, which is one of the national and European reference companies in the field of cybersecurity and cyberintelligence, will participate in this meeting with several presentations and training. Specifically, Roberto Amado, security director of S2 Grupo, will show how to “hunt” cybercriminals through the so-called “Threat Hunting”.
Currently, cyberattacks are increasingly sophisticated and more difficult to detect through so-called APTs (advanced persistent threats) and, therefore, Threat Hunting has become one of the most relevant techniques for “hunting” and anticipating cyber-criminals and avoiding the consequences of their actions, which in Spain alone involve losses of millions of euros for companies and organizations every year.
Roberto Amado, through the use of a specific tool such as Sysmon, will teach attendees how to “hunt down” generic malware and also that which comes from APTs.
“The cyber protection of the present and the future requires specific training in this area to know and develop all the necessary cybersecurity tools that allow us to anticipate the action of cybercriminals. In this sense, with threat hunting we act, not when we have detected a failure or a problem, but proactively to hunt down the ‘bad guys’ quickly, even when they have managed to escape from the existing security measures”, explained the S2 Grupo security director.
“Hunting malware and especially uncovering the activities of APT groups is a discipline within cybersecurity that has a short lifespan and that, without a doubt, in a short space of time will constitute a highly demanded profile within our sector. Since 2013, some of the ‘hunts’ that I have prepared have allowed uncovering campaigns of APT groups such as Turla, WIRTE, APT28 or APT15, among others. In this meeting, the objective is to share advanced malware detection techniques based on network and endpoint anomalies, going on to present a real case of detection, which allowed a few months ago, to uncover an incident of government espionage in an important international organization”, concluded Roberto Amado.
