In this September PD’s first session (proudly sponsored by Recorded Future) we will be delving into the world of hunting and tracking “RedDelta” – a little known threat group targeting The Vatican and the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong. “Martin”, an Insikt Group researcher, will be discussing the methods he used to hunt and discover “RedDelta” activities, including tracking malware-variants and command-and-control infrastructure relating to this state-sponsored threat group.

In our second session, Chirag will be presenting on an overview of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) on how they’re connected and how they are linked with cyber threats that use AI as well as those that attack AI applications. He will also be covering real-world incidents and events, and also defensive mechanism which can aid in such cyber-attacks.
