ISSA-LA February Lunch Meeting

February 18, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm


Topic: WHO ARE THE BAD GUYS? There is more than one kind of miscreant out there these days. More than one kind of crime. Everything from amateur jokesters to acts of war, and, to quote Al Jolson, you ain’t seen nothing yet! I have divided the categories of cyber actors (only I don’t like to call them actors because, as a SAG card carrying actor in my own right I don’t like to debase that term) so let’s call them Perpetrators, okay? Six kinds of perpetrators. This basically covers what we face today, and these six kinds use different tactics, have different goals, create different kinds of problems. They are all bad guys, but some of them are on our team, or claim to be. This will take the confusion you face today and make it terrifying. I promise.

Speaker:  David Perry – Threat Strategist at F-Secure

David has been working in computer security since 1990. He has presented all over the world, at conferences like Infosec Europe, RSA, Virus Bulletin, AVAR and EICAR.
