Knock, knock, knocking on PwC's door

Friday 6 October 11:30 - 12:00, Green room

Bart Parys (PwC)

With a 225,000+ strong workforce which spans more than 150 countries, and with most major organizations in the world as clients, including most companies in the Fortune 500, PwC is on the receiving end of a wide variety of both commodity and targeted threat activity.

This technical talk will not only outline how we deal with incidents, but will also detail some of the more interesting techniques and targeting we have observed recently against both PwC and its clients, with a focus on the details of the techniques as well as some of the adversaries behind the activity.
