Aggressive Autonomous Agents: The next type of threat?

Track: Technical
Technical level
Time: 13:40

The world has experienced several autonomously operating threats with advanced lateral movement capabilities and a destructive purpose - be it via pretending to be ransomware (WannaCry) or by wiping devices directly (CaddyWiper). Given the impact these threats can have and the rapid evolution of lateral movement techniques occurring, we asked ourselves - why don?t we see more of these?

This talk tries to answer that question by giving a brief overview of historic aggressive autonomous agents (AAA), shared traits, what might deter / motivate threat actors to create more of them and what we think the future of AAAs will look like.
