Webcast – Are Beacons Evil?

March 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

We all know that beacons – regular connections between systems – are commonly used to carry instructions and data in a command and control channel. But that raises an interesting question; are Beacons always malicious?

In this presentation by Active Countermeasures’, Keith Chew, & Bill Stearns, we’ll look at the Threat types normally associated with command and control traffic and see how legitimate application traffic can show up. We’ll go over the types of traffic and how to identify and whitelist them.

Join the THREAT HUNTING COMMUNITY Discord Server to engage with the presenters and your fellow attendees during the webcast: https://discord.gg/dnmvXkz
