Initial Access in 2023

Director, Threat Intelligence,
FortiGuard Labs, Fortinet

Jonas is a passionate cybersecurity professional with more than 10 years of expertise in networking and security. Jonas loves technology and lives in Asia’s technology capital Singapore. He is a digital native who is interested in offensive security and cyber. As a cybersecurity expert, Jonas advises and engages clients and executive leaders on solution strategies in several industry segments. He works regularly with global threat intelligence initiatives within Fortinet, including the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) and INTERPOL to respond to advanced threats as they break – and proactively plans to stay ahead of the curve. He dedicates his free time to hacking, fitness, golf, and exploring Asians culture.

While the attack surface increases rapidly, most cyberattacks leverage different strategies to gain access to corporate networks. In this session, I will showcase the most prevalent techniques from the most successful threat actors in 2022 with multiple live demos. The demo will showcase how hackers enumerate environments and launch attacks against their targets to infiltrate organizations. In addition, the demo highlights recent changes in the attack surface in a post covid world and how most of the successful attacks operate these days. The presentation delivers a current view of the threat landscape from an offensive point of view. The more we learn and understand offensive security, the better we can protect ourselves against these threats. Decision-makers must be aware of these real-world attacks to make their organizations less vulnerable. Finally, the presentation recommends leveraging the presented information for security strategies.

We need to bring employees to the table that bring fresh insights, different experiences, backgrounds, and diverse perspectives.
