Mark is Vice President of Cloud Research at Trend Micro. He joined me at RSAC 2018 to discuss developing new email security gateway tools, operational technology in IoT, the new Cybersecurity Tech Accord, information security buzzwords and more!
At this year’s RSA security conference in San Francisco, researcher Rob Graham gave a presentation entitled “Mirai and IoT Botnet Analysis.” His talk examined the infamous “Mirai” Internet of Things botnet and shared details on how it operates. Graham also covered technical aspects of the cameras it infects and detailed his own experimentation with Mirai in the wild. He went on to discuss last year’s massive DDoS attacks on DNS provider Dyn, which involved variations of the Mirai IoT botnet.
