BSides Conference: Start as a guest, end on stage.

Our two cyber defense experts Evgen Blohm and Marius Genheimer had an exciting experience at the #BSides conference in Frankfurt am Main last week. As attendees of the conference, they really just wanted to learn about the latest developments in cyber defense. Unfortunately, a planned presentation was cancelled.

To fill the gap, Evgen and Marius spontaneously agreed to share their insights from one of their recent #DFIR missions.

The presentation titled “All your files are belong to us’ – Investigating a BianLian Extortion-Group Intrusion” was prepared but not planned for this conference.

In the first part of the presentation, Evgen mainly reported on the cyberattack on one of our customers by the #BianLian #APT group, addressing the following questions:

– How did the attackers penetrate the network?

– What was the timeline of the attack?

– What techniques and tools did the attackers use?

Marius shared in his part some more insights about the APT group BianLian, such as their #Darkweb presence, their activities in forums and also #Threat #Intelligence information that #SECUINFRA could gain through the outreach about BianLian.

Giving a paid talk at one of the numerous “sales conferences” is something (almost) anyone can do. To be able to speak at an insider conference like #BlackHat, #DefCon or #BSides is already an honor. To spontaneously switch roles as a guest at such an event and suddenly find yourself on stage as a speaker is very impressive.

Well done Evgen and Marius 😉
