Speakers and presentations

"Emerging Cyber-Threats Targeting Financial Institutions"
This presentation will share research carried out on the root causes of security incidents caused by attacks from emerging threats such as malware banking. The session will provide practical examples of instances of compromises causes by various threat agents and provide an in depth analysis of methods and attacks vectors employed against online banking applications. The scope of this analysis will be to analyse the threats, simulate attacks and identify flaws in application architecture that can be prioritised for remediation. To simulate the attack, modelling techniques such as the attack kill chain and attack trees will be shown. The goal of this session is to provide information security officer’s examples of processes, methodologies and risk frameworks that can be used to identify countermeasures to mitigate emerging threats.

Speaker: Marco Morana, SVP Technology Risks & Controls, Citi

"Overview of Online Banking Malware & Countermeasures"
This session will present how attackers currently identify and exploit web vulnerabilities on financial institution websites to stealing credentials. Giorgio will also demonstrate how compromised customer PC’s can compromise online transaction platforms an overview of the technology being used for prevention. Finally Giorgio will present a new technology “AMT Banking Malware Detector” that allows banks to identify users infected with malware before they become victims of fraud.

Speaker: Giorgio Fedon, COO, Minded Security & OWASP Lead.

"Preventing In-Browser Malicious Code Execution"
DOM Based XSS (or as it is called in some texts, “type-0 XSS”) is an XSS attack wherein the attack payload is executed as a result of modifying the DOM “environment” in the victim’s browser used by the original client side script, so that the client side code runs in an “unexpected” manner. Certain vulnerabilities in JavaScript code cannot be tracked by standard IDS or perimeter security measures, which leads to a huge potential vulnerability, the code can be abused to steal data or bypass authentication mechanisms in web interfaces. This presentation will demonstrate vulnerabilities and also present Minded Security’s latest countermeasure DOMinatorPro.

Speaker: Stefano Di Paola. CTO, Minded Security & OWASP Project Lead
