WiCyS Critical Infrastructure Affiliate Logo

Why do cyber threat actors target airports? Who does it, and how? How can understanding historic targeting and compromises help you become a better cyber security professional? In this 45 minute threat intelligence brief, Mandiant analysts seek to answer these questions and more by discussing the valuable information stored within airports, the threat actors that steal this information, and how they do it. With over a decade of experience in tracking the most sophisticated cyber threat actors, Mandiant will walk through case studies ranging from Russian cyber espionage actors leveraging an airport website as a watering hole, Chinese and Iranian actors gathering valuable traveler information for surveillance and intelligence purposes, and how cyber criminals can monetize this data on underground forums. After this briefing you will have an understanding of not only the cyber threat landscape for airports, but also information to help you operationalize and apply this intelligence across multiple cyber security professions.

Speakers: Emily Cranston, Principal Analyst and Katelyn Bailey, Threat Intelligence Manager
Company: FireEye Mandiant
