Security & Counter Terror Expo

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

General Cybersecurity Conference

 March 6 – 7, 2018 | London, United Kingdom

Cybersecurity Conference Description 

Cyber-attacks are the newest and potentially most disruptive threat to national security. The NHS and Deloitte have recently been hit by cyber-attacks, threatening the security and infrastructure of these integral organisations. The National Cyber Security Centre reported more than 1,000 attacks in its first year of operation.

As the number of threats to cyber infrastructure increases, so does the vital need to secure and protect all communications, banking, personal information and documents transmitted online. The market is growing rapidly and is now estimated at £3.4 billion, opening the way for new innovation to protect against these threats.

Join over 1,000 leading experts, government, law enforcement, military and security leaders at SCTX 2018 at the UK’s fastest growing cyber security event.

Fancy Bear #hackers are now #exploiting the #New York terror attack to #spread their #malware

As the US justice department forges ahead with its investigation into the Trump administration and any possible collusion with Russia, the Fancy Bear hackers continue refining their attacks against global targets. As part of their new phishing campaign, the hackers are capitalising on the recent New York terror attack, to trick users into clicking on malicious documents, which in turn infects systems with their malware.

The Kremlin-linked hackers first made headlines during the 2016 US presidential campaign and are now widely considered to have orchestrated the cyberattacks against the US Democratic Party. The cyberespionage group has since been actively involved in various campaigns over the past year, targeting organisations and individuals across the globe.

The Fancy Bears’ most recent campaign, uncovered by security researchers at McAfee, involves the use of a black malicious document, titled “IsisAttackInNewYork”, which when clicked drops the hackers’ first-stage reconnaissance malware dropper Seduploader. The implant collects basic data from infected PCs and profiles prospective victims. Once hackers determine some interest in the victim, the implant then drops Fancy Bears’ customised malware X-Agent or Sedreco.

Terror expert: U.S. vulnerable to any ‘hacker or cracker’

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Terrorism expert Harvey Kushner says the most sensitive U.S. assets are at the mercy of any “hacker or cracker,” and the next major attack against the country will likely come through cyberspace, but he is also also cautiously optimistic that America’s best minds will be able to thwart the sinister intentions of its enemies. During a recent appearance on WNYW-TV Fox 5 in New York City, Kushner offered a blunt diagnosis of the cyber threat facing the American people and the nation’s most sensitive national data. “Any hacker or cracker from his or her basement can get into our national grid and get into our military hardware,” said Kushner in the Fox 5 interview. Kushner, who is also director of the Homeland Security and Terrorism Institute at Long Island University, said this level of vulnerability is the price of rapidly advancing technology. “The advances occur almost on a daily basis. So just when you have something up and you have it somewhat protected, somebody is able to compromise the system and get into whatever it is you’re trying to protect,” said Kushner, who fears the next major attack that succeeds against the U.S. will come from hackers. “I do think […]

Islamic State Terror Group Makes Alliance With Anti-Israel Hackers to Increase Cyber Attacks

A number of Twit­ter accounts promoting the Islamic State terrorist group are col­lab­o­rat­ing with anti-Israel hack­ers in an effort to increase cyber attacks on behalf of the terror organization, the Anti-Defamation League reported on Thursday. The Alazm Cen­ter Twit­ter account posted a message on Jan. 13 asking hack­ers to con­tact them. Since then, a group of anti-Israel hack­ers called “Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” has claimed respon­si­bil­ity for sev­eral attacks against Israeli web­sites in the name of the Islamic State. The hackers said they breached the web­site of a secu­rity con­trac­tor in Israel, a tour orga­nizer and other Israeli busi­nesses, according to ADL. Vis­i­tors are redirected to web­sites fea­tur­ing the name and flag of the Islamic State, along with the sig­na­ture of the hacking group. “Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” declared their allegiance to the Islamic State in a video posted on YouTube on Nov. 29, 2014, ADL noted. They also have a Face­book page and a Twit­ter account that include mes­sages in sup­port of Islamic State terrorists. The group of hackers declared respon­si­bil­ity for the anti-Israel attacks in a state­ment posted on JustPaste.it, a file-shar­ing website the Islamic State uses to anonymously pub­lish its own state­ments. The message said, “Thanks to […]
