Session Abstract

Adversaries today are technically advanced, structured around an underground governed by market forces, and using paradigm shifts in technology to compromise more victims. We examine techniques for identifying, anonymizing, and sharing threat intelligence and discuss use cases ranging from DDOS to malware where this approach can speed response times and prevent breaches.
