Sophos announces eight presentations at Black Hat USA 2022, BSides Las Vegas and DEF CON 30

Sophos announced that SophosAI and Sophos Managed Detection and Response (MDR) will lead eight presentations at Black Hat USA 2022, BSides Las Vegas and DEF CON 30, taking place this week in Las Vegas.

Sophos data scientists and threat hunters will be at the events to discuss innovative research findings and to share unique insights into building security machine learning systems, running one of the industry’s largest global security operations centers (SOC), defending against advanced threats, and more.

Sophos also unveiled new research from Sophos X-Ops, a new threat response joint task force that unifies three established teams of cybersecurity experts at Sophos – SophosLabs, Sophos SecOps and SophosAI – to help organizations better protect against attackers. The research, “Multiple Attackers: A Clear and Present Danger,” details a series of incidents where numerous attackers targeted and compromised the same victim networks in short succession, often within days or weeks. In one instance, three prominent ransomware gangs – Hive, LockBit and BlackCat – consecutively attacked the same network, resulting in three ransomware demands and triple encrypted files.
