Posted by    on   Jan 16, 2020

Past Virus Bulletin conference papers (co-)written by Juan Andrés Guerrero-Saade, such as those on fourth-party collection or false flags, have become legendary and continue to be cited across the industry. At VB2019 in London, ‘JAGS’ was back. Now Research Tsar at Chronicle, he looked at an interesting use case for threat intelligence: nation-state actors using threat intelligence for victim deconfliction.

Today we have published Juan Andrés' paper in both HTML and PDF format. We have also uploaded the recording of his VB2019 presentation to our YouTube channel.
