Trustwave Senior Vice President Nicholas J. Percoco and U.S. Secret Service Special Agent Erik Rasmussen will lead a keynote address on Thursday, February 28, at the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco. In “The Lifecycle of Cybercrime,” they will highlight cybercrime trends from forensic investigations compiled in the 2013 Trustwave Global Security Report. Percoco and Rasmussen will uncover the lifecycle of attacks including criminal motivations behind attacks, techniques used to infiltrate organizations, data aggregation methods, data exfiltration techniques and financial impact.
Percoco leads a global team of security experts at Trustwave. He and his team have performed more than 1,500 computer incident response and forensic investigations, run thousands of ethical hacking and application security tests for clients and conducted research around emerging and zero-day threats. Rasmussen is currently assigned to the United States Secret Service Criminal Investigative Division, Cyber Intelligence Section. He began working as a Special Agent in 2004. He has also worked on the Electronic Crimes Task Forces for the Los Angeles and Seattle Field Offices.
Additional Trustwave presentations include:
• February 26, 1:10PM PST, Room 305: Trustwave’s Percoco and Senior Security Research Manager Steve Ocepek will present “Cloudy with a Chance of Sploits.” The cloud is here to stay, but like any new technology it has its own unique set of security concerns. This presentation includes real-world findings uncovered by Trustwave that demonstrate how the cloud changes everything, especially when things go wrong.
• February 27, 1PM PST, Room 124: Trustwave’s Director of Application Security Services Charles Henderson will present “Application Security: One Size Doesn’t Fit All.” Every Web project has a unique set of requirements so one size does not fit all when it comes to a development toolset. Complete with real-world examples, this presentation will focus on the relative benefits of different testing approaches, what lifecycle stage the application is in, who wrote the application and what types of testing have been performed in the past.
• February 28, 10:40am PST, Room 120: Trustwave’s Security Researchers Daniel Chechik and Anat Davidi present “Exploitation of Attackers’ PHP Systems.” Chechik and Davidi will discuss how end-user machines could get into attackers' PHP-based infrastructures. They will cover advanced techniques of PHP vulnerability discovery and exploitation, as well as provide real-life examples of known attacker PHP-based infrastructures and new vulnerabilities discovered in them.
Trustwave will also officially present the 2013 Trustwave Global Security Report at the RSA Conference, revealing the top vulnerabilities and threats that could potentially harm large and small businesses and government agencies worldwide.
