Posted by    on   Nov 12, 2020

As part of VB2020 localhost we were proud to co-host the Threat Intelligence Practitioners' Summit (TIPS), put together by the Cyber Threat Alliance. In a series of blog posts we highlight some of the talks presented in the Summit and the important contribution of threat intelligence sharing.


Business Email Compromise (BEC) is now the most profitable form of cybercrime – according to the most recent IC3 report (PDF), in 2019 global losses due to BEC exceeded US $1.7 billion, making it the most prominent, most pressing cybercrime threat currently faced by the cybersecurity industry.

In his presentation as part of the Threat Intelligence Practitioners' Summit, Pete Renals of Palo Alto Networks' Unit 42 team described the scalable methods used by the team to map out BEC actor infrastructure, develop proactive defensive measures, and attribute the activity.
