Center Stage: Persistent Infrastructure Threat Actors
ThreatTalk season 4 episode 2
While it is easy to get distracted by the ‘threat of the day,’ there are those of us actively hunting instead for the infrastructures that drive and support those kinds of attacks before they are launched so that you can be prepared for the ‘threat of tomorrow.’ Renée Burton, Head of Threat Intelligence for Infoblox, presented on this at the recent RSA conference and joins ThreatTalk to share what her team is learning about these infrastructures, the actors behind them, and why this matters so much.
Renée Burton, Head of Threat Intelligence, Infoblox
Renée has a long history as a researcher and data scientist focused on intelligence analysis. For the past five years, she’s applied that background specifically to the discovery and tracking of threats via DNS. Finding bad actors and understanding their behavior is her favorite way to spend the day.
Bob Hansmann, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Infoblox
Bob Hansmann has been in security for over three decades addressing everything from insider threats to advanced multi-vector, zero-day attacks. Over his career, he has helped many of today’s leading security vendors pioneer and introduce many new technologies as a developer, architect, product manager, and marketer. He currently heads a family with three generations of CTOs, developers, and security analysts, so he sometimes finds it hard to differentiate work from family time.
