Bishop Fox Senior Security Associate Rhett Greenhagen was the closing keynote at BSides Tampa in February. Watch his talk below:

Attacking the data before the decision


Machine learning and artificial intelligence are emerging as leading technologies when it comes to how data is ingested into graph database management systems such as Neo4j, MongoDB, Cassandra, ArangoDB, Orient DB, Titan, JanusGraph, etc.. One way to manipulate this data leverages said technologies: adversarial modeling/machine learning. And, yes, the bad guys know about it.

In this talk, I’ll share examples of how nation-state actors and cybercriminals are using this method – and how you can defend yourself. Did you know, for example, that cybercriminals work closely with fraud rings to mitigate fraud detection algorithms? Learning how these attacks unfold is critical to preventing them.

Attendees will walk away with the knowledge of how malicious hackers can use both simple and advanced attack methods – and armed with the knowledge to protect themselves, too.
