AGENDA
OMDIA KEYNOTE 1
2022 Outlook: Threats and Trends Every Enterprise Should Watch For
Speaker: Maxine Holt

In 2021, enterprises saw a variety of new cyber threats arriving at their gates, including new supply chain vulnerabilities exposed via the late 2020 SolarWinds attack, and a direct attack on water systems in Florida. At the same time, a variety of new technologies emerged for cyber defense, including new detection and response (XDR) systems and a plethora of tools for protecting remote systems and home workers.

In this keynote address, Maxine Holt, head of Omdia Research’s cybersecurity practice, offers a forward-looking view on the threats, technologies and trends expected for 2022, and provides advice on how to prepare for them.

OMDIA KEYNOTE 2
XDR: The Nexus for Tomorrow’s Security Operations
Speaker: Eric Parizo

The unprecedented volume and sophistication of cyberattacks in 2021 has highlighted the critical need for enterprises to step up their game in detecting, correlating, and responding to online compromise. One of the most critical trends expected to hit security operations centers in 2022 is the emergence of XDR – the set of tools needed to swiftly analyze cyber data and stop online attacks before they do damage to critical data.

In this insightful keynote address, Omdia principal analyst Eric Parizo offers insight on the future of XDR technology, and recommendations on how enterprises can make the best possible use of emerging detection technologies.

BLACKHAT SESSION 1
Can You Hear Me Now? Remote Eavesdropping Vulnerabilities in Mobile Messaging Applications
Speaker: Natalie Silvanovich

On January 29, 2019, a serious vulnerability was discovered by multiple parties in Group FaceTime which allowed an attacker to call a target and force the call to connect without user interaction from the target, allowing the attacker to listen to the target’s surroundings without their knowledge or consent. While this remarkable bug was soon fixed, it presented a new and unresearched attack surface in mobile applications that support video conferencing.

This presentation covers my attempts to find similar bugs in other messaging applications, including Signal, JioChat, Mocha, Google Duo, and Facebook Messenger.

BLACKHAT SESSION 2
ERROR: BadAlloc! – Broken Memory Allocators Led to Millions of Vulnerable IoT and Embedded Devices
Speaker: Omri Ben-Bassat

“BadAlloc” is our code name for a class of integer-overflow related security issues found in popular memory allocators’ core functions such as malloc and calloc. BadAlloc vulnerabilities affect 17 different widely used real time operating systems (i.e., VxWorks, FreeRTOS, eCos), standard C libraries (i.e., newlib, uClibc, Linux klibc), IoT device SDKs (i.e., Google Cloud IoT SDK, Texas Instruments SimpleLink SDK) and other selfmemory management applications (i.e., Redis).

Some of these vulnerabilities go as far back as the early 90’s and all of them collectively impact millions of devices worldwide, mainly IoT and embedded devices as this was out of focus.

In this talk, we’ll present some of the most interesting findings and discuss how we found them. We’ll do a quick root-cause analysis for each of the selected cases and show, in high depth technical level, how this specific kind of vulnerability could be leveraged to a full-blown remote code execution exploit on affected systems. We’ll discuss possible mitigation techniques and propose a method to check whether your application is affected by BadAlloc or similar vulnerability.

Finally, a demo of a working RCE exploit will be presented.

DARK READING PANEL SESSION
Rebuilding Remote Access Security for the Long Haul
Moderator: Kelly Jackson Higgins, Executive Editor, Dark Reading
Speakers: Alert Logic | Joshua Cigna, Solutions Architect, Yubico | Chenxi Wang, Managing General Partner, Rain Capital | Eric Thomas , Information Security Analyst, HD Supply

In 2020, the global pandemic forced enterprises to make overnight shift to digital business and work-from-home computing. After a year of holding security together with temporary fixes, many security teams are preparing for a new year and a new operating model that will likely combine both in-person and remote computing. In this panel, experts will discuss the outlook for enterprise computing in 2022, and the longterm steps security teams will need to make to support the “back to normal” computing model.
