ISSA-LA August Lunch Meeting

August 21, 2013 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Description: August Lunch Meeting

Topic:  Malware Automation
Automation is key when it comes to production. The same is true for malware. Malware production has moved on from the traditional manual method to a more efficient automated assembly line. In this talk, I will take the audience on an over-the-shoulder look at how attackers automate malware production. Discussion will focus on the tools and methodologies the attackers use to produce thousands of malware on a daily basis. The talk will then conclude with a live demonstration of how malware is produced in an automated fashion.

Speaker: Christopher Elisan

He is currently the Prinicipal Malware Scientist at RSA. Elisan is one of the pioneers of Trend Micro’s TrendLabs where he held multiple technical and managerial positions.
