    As the world of cybercrime evolves, threat actors will look to utilise any methods at their disposal to gain an advantage within the cybercriminal landscape. This, however, does not preclude them from utilising the same developing technologies as legitimate businesses; in an effort to gain an advantage. The number of “as-a-service” offerings has exploded over the last decade, with many of these mechanisms being implemented throughout businesses across the globe due to their numerous benefits. Cybercriminals have noticed this also, and as such, “as-a-service” has become a core part of the cybercrime landscape.

    This talk will explore how Cybercrime-as-a-Service fits into the larger cybercriminal toolkit; detailing the numerous offerings, from Malware-as-a-Service to DDoS-as-a-Service and how these benefit the groups that use them. It will also aim to investigate the unique threats that the “as-a-service” offerings pose, and the wider effect this has on the tactics, techniques, and procedures of the threat actors utilising them

    A lot has changed in the technology and business landscape since the first NIST Cybersecurity Framework was introduced, for the NIST CSF 2.0, these changes have been incorporated into the language so that cybersecurity challenges in the context of the current world of business are taken into account. A whole new function, Govern, is also a strong sign of ushering more maturity for the cybersecurity function as it moves from the realm of the reactive and even the proactive to becoming continuous operations that are part of every business. While there are still areas that would be valuable to be highlighted even more from this framework, it’s solid ground to establish one’s cybersecurity operations on top of and a valuable mirror, to be honest about an organization’s cybersecurity posture.

    Tom Egglestone, using data from Resilience’s October 2023 claims report, would discuss the finding that third-party attacks were the biggest cause of claims in Q2 2023, going ahead of phishing for the first time following the MOVEit breach. This allows malicious actors to scale their attacks and impact more companies – a return to ‘big-game hunting’ tactics that prioritise bigger targets for maximum impact. Tom will highlight how to properly manage third-party vendor risk in today’s evolving threat landscape, and how this continues to shape cybersecurity trends in 2024.

    Street infrastructure is now being fitted with sensors that gather data about traffic, pedestrians, and the environment within which the public services operate.  This smart street ecosystem is also referred to as connected places. This research initially explored how the integrated smart infrastructure services rolled out by local authorities (through private operators) are changing the criminal and security landscape. It then deep dived using smart EV charging case study, into whether the current procurement process enables the local authorities to utilise NCSC connected place principles for cybersecurity to minimize cyber risks of the connected place ecosystem. The research highlights the gap in national policy to protect national essential services and local implementation for systemic events.

    In 2022 a group of suspected North Korean hackers broke into a Vietnamese video game. At $625m, the haul was a serious contender for the largest single theft in history. It was certainly the fastest - the money was spirited away in under two minutes. As the thieves raced to launder the loot, they inadvertently triggered a battle royale between financial regulators, law enforcement, free speech advocates and crypto bros.
