Press Release updated: Oct 19, 2017 08:30 EDT

Marshall Heilman of Mandiant, a FireEye Company, will present “Got Spies in Your Wires?”  on October 24 during Cyber Security Summit 2017 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. 

Heilman is Vice President, Technical Operations & Reverse Engineering, IR & Red Team Operations at Mandiant. ​His talk will discuss the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape from his perspective as incident responder. Significant threat groups, activities from dedicated hacker countries and the professionalization of the hacking industry are topics he will cover.

Threats confronting security professionals today are quite different from the threats of five years ago. We’ve witnessed a progressive evolution as perpetrators have become highly professional cybercriminals, based on both monetary and political factors. Session attendees can expect to gain a high level of understanding of the types of threat groups, their motivations, and some of their tactics, techniques and procedures.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
