The New Endpoint Challenge - Cracks in the Foundation

Cyber adversaries are not “sophisticated”, rather they are pragmatic. They have mastered the art of staying one step ahead of our controls. The endpoint, still the nexus of the cyber challenge, has become difficult for adversaries to maintain persistence on, due to advances in AI/ML, EDR, and Threat Intelligence. The battlefield is defined by the "time advantage" that either side has over the other. Hence, both APTs and criminal ransomware groups have adapted by going “further down the stack”, and they have arrived at firmware, hardware, and driver level TTPs (Tactics, Techniques, Procedures) that now plague enterprises across myriad threat scenarios ranging from supply chain, to malware, to insiders, IOT, and more. There is a dire lack of visibility here, and attackers are enjoying the omnipotence and indefinite persistence that platform-layer TTP’s provide.

This talk will challenge fundamental assumptions we make about cyber risk, by exposing platform security for what it is: the very foundation of trust, integrity, confidentiality and availability upon which the rest of the computing and cyber stack are built. We say we want a Zero Trust strategy, yet we haven’t protected the foundation itself that attackers are targeting. Welcome to platform security, hold on tight.
