The rapid adoption of computing in mobile devices, financial transactions, communications and industrial controls has given rise to modern threats from eCriminals and adversarial nations attempting to seize gains in wealth and political control.
Today’s Cyber threats target people and their roles in organizations and governments rather than computer systems and networks. While cyber attackers target victims using a variety of channels, they rely on human error to penetrate systems of value for espionage and large financial payoffs. Inspired by the challenges of a society protecting itself against modern adversaries, our projects focus on the exploitation of our social norms, values and patterns of behavior against enemies using new digital attack surfaces.
While cyber attack surfaces are still vastly unknown by most of us, their clandestine nature intrigues us. It's time for cyber security to become personal.
In response to sophisticated cyber threats, the US has aggressively modernized. Defeating the enemy requires an entirely new approach where risky alliances are formed with private companies, eccentric individuals and foreign governments. Some of these alliances involve individuals with financial and political motivations resulting in adversarial impacts. Meanwhile, cyber enemies develop highly sophisticated attack techniques, often involving individuals at targeted municipalities and NGO’s such as financial institutions or utilities. The enemy uses clandestine social engineering approaches in addition to traditional cyber attack skills to achieve their goals. Countermeasures and cyber threat hunting by the FBI may become our only hope of restoring financial and personal safety in this new and complex existence. – The Digital Adversary
