SafeBreach Labs Presenting New Hacking Techniques and Adversary Simulation at Information Security Conferences Across US, Canada and Austria in November

CTO and Co-Founder Itzik Kotler and Security Researcher Dor Azouri to Take the Stage at Hackfest, BSides DFW, DeepSec IDSC and Las Vegas Technical Colloquium

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2017) - SafeBreach, the leading provider of Breach and Attack Simulation, today announced that CTO and co-founder Itzik Kotler and security researcher Dor Azouri will be presenting at Hackfest, BSides DFW, DeepSec IDSC and the Las Vegas Technical Colloquium.

At Hackfest and DeepSec IDSC, Azouri will uncover the way Windows' BITS service maintains its jobs queue, and present a way for a local administrator to control jobs using none of BITS' public interfaces. He will demonstrate how an attacker may use this new technique to run a program of his will as the LocalSystem account, within session 0.

At BSides DFW, Kotler will be discussing different malware dropper techniques and implementations, as well as how to abuse legitimate, public and collaborative websites to host and embed droppers. He will be showing a live demonstration of this original research.

At the first-ever Las Vegas Technical Colloquium, Kotler will be contributing to the technical track, discussing the emerging technology of breach and attack simulation. Giving a demonstration of how to safely simulate hacker breach methods to validate security controls, Kotler will provide a deep dive into how weaponizing hacker techniques can improve security for SOC and incident response teams.

"Hackers have proven, this year more than ever, that they have the upper hand," said Kotler. "It's time to turn the tables on attackers by automating their methods to proactively find weaknesses and fix them. SafeBreach Labs works hard year-round to ensure we are advancing offensive security research. With more than 3,000 breach methods in our Hacker's Playbook™, our customers can be better prepared to anticipate and thwart the next attack."
