VB2015 paper: Effectively testing APT defences
Simon Edwards discusses how to test the potentially untestable.
Like the term or loathe it, APTs have given rise to a new generation of security products that protect against these more targeted and sometimes more advanced threats. Often, such products come with bold claims about how they are able to fend off such threats in ways that traditional security products can’t.
At VB2015, Simon Edwards (Dennis Technology Labs) presented a paper, written together with Richard Ford (Florida Institute of Technology) and Gabor Szappanos (Sophos), on how to effectively test such technologies.
