SINCON 2021 Conference — BizComm Talk
Day 2 (06 Nov 2021) 1.00pm—1.30pm @ Open Stage
Scope X: The Path to Surprise Breaches!
We have all the protections in place, well designed and configured based on best practices. We have run several assessments to discover security issues, identify gaps, potential entry points, etc. Yet, we may get breached if attackers walk into our digital land through unattended cyber threats. Scope X refers to any unknowns in an organization that we may not be fully aware of their risks or even their existence! This talk discusses a technical side of Scope X discovery and a proactive approach to identifying the potential threats. Subdomains threat hunting will be used to elaborate the techniques as they provide cybercriminals with a larger attack surface consisting of security issues, sensitive information, vulnerabilities, unnoticed attack vectors, entry points, etc.
