Sandworm Resurfaced: The Continuing Story
Title: Sandworm Resurfaced: The Continuing Story
Presenters: Andy Greenberg Author, Journalist, WIRED & John Hultquist, Sr. Director, Intelligence Analysis, Mandiant Threat Intelligence
A few years ago, in the wake of the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, the world became aware of the extent of Russia's cyber attack capabilities. The story of this first real instance of sustained, unrestricted cyber war is captured in WIRED journalist Andy Greenberg’s award-winning book SANDWORM: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers.
In this session, Andy Greenberg is welcomed by John Hultquist of Mandiant for a review of Sandworm activities, from blackouts in Ukraine to NotPetya, the most costly cyberattack in history. They will also discuss the enduring relevance of the Sandworm group in light of the recent U.S. National Security Agency warning about the group’s continuing activities to disrupt global government and corporate networks and systems.
