- Show shifts in targeting and major incidents involving point-of-sale malware since 2011.
- Discuss the global spread and increasing use of POS malware prior to the Target breach.
- Provide a live demonstration of open-source threat intelligence analysis on BlackPOS malware from which the specific malware used against Target is believed to be derived.
- Share how Recorded Future web intelligence can be used to tie together disparate technical informationinto a comprehensive understanding of fast evolving malware threats.
