NOVA Loudon Campus and ISACA GWDC hosted a lively and well-attended event on September 24 with Allan Liska speaking on the subject of “Merging of Cyber Criminal and Nation State Techniques: A Look at the Lazarus Group.” Approximately seventy-five people attended the event and Allan shared his expertise in the area of threat intelligence and discussed the activities of the Lazarus Group which has had multiple operations over the years, most of which involve either disruption, sabotage, financial theft or espionage.
The Lazarus Group (and any kind of targeted attack) is dangerous because of the wide variety of tools at their disposal and the different tactics they use depending on their targets and their objectives. This means that an organization’s security and IT professionals must ensure that every corner of their network infrastructure is secure from different kinds of attacks.
The success of the event was driven by Babur Kohy with ISACA GWDC’s support. Babur’s dedication to bringing in Cyber experts help students receive the latest information about cyber threats and rapidly evolving technology.
