How They Bypass Office 365 Security

The move to SaaS has changed the phishing landscape: your Office 365 inbox is the #1 threat vector and your Office 365 credentials are their #1 target. In this talk, we will demonstrate the techniques attackers use to bypass Microsoft’s defenses. Learn how they use Microsoft’s own services to fool filters and utilize built-in tools to launch them internally–bypassing your email security gateway.

During this session, we’ll demonstrate how to protect Office 365 from:

  • Email-based phishing, spoofing, and malware
  • Account takeover, insider threats, compromised Microsoft credentials
  • Loss of sensitive data from OneDrive, SharePoint and Office 365

AV, EDR, NGAV…What’s Next in Endpoint Protection?

Antivirus has been around since the 1980s. How did it evolve in the past decade? What about hot machine learning-powered Next Generation Antivirus products promoted by well-funded startups? Or should we assume compromise and focus on the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) instead? What are the pros and cons of these approaches and where is endpoint security going next?

This interactive presentation will discuss the reasons behind the vulnerable state of endpoint security and include a demo of the infamous Rubber Ducky that remains practically unstoppable by today’s endpoint protection products.

You will leave the presentation with the following knowledge:

  • Understand the current state of endpoint security and latest attacks
  • Explore available endpoint protection tools, including Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
  • Learn about benefits and shortcomings of modern endpoint protection tools and approaches
  • See an advanced file-less attack in action
  • Learn the latest best practices and solutions that promise to reduce threat surface and minimize breaches
