"Enemy Perspectives: When Nation-States Meet Cybercriminals"


Threat intelligence is interested in the entire kill chain from tools to victims. Chief among these interests are the threat actors themselves who carry out attacks and campaigns. Many different schemes exist on how to classify differet types of threat actors in order to more easily describe and understand them. This presentation focuses on the nation-state and cybercriminal classes of threat actors, how they differ, and how they overlap. Real world examples are provided to illustrate new and different ways of thinking about threat actors.
