Cybereason is pleased to share that our CEO and co-founder Lior Div will be a keynote speaker at the Govware Conference in Singapore on Wednesday, October 6, 9:30 am, SST. His talk will focus on the rise in cyber attacks against global telecommunications companies.  Sam Curry, the company’s CSO, will also be speaking on Thursday, October 7, 1:05 pm SST, offering practical advice and recommendations for future proofing a business. 

lior-authorDiv’s keynote address will focus on a year-long investigation by Cybereason researchers into three Chinese threat groups that targeted telecommunications companies in Southeast Asia, as detailed in the report DeadRinger: Exposing Chinese Threat Actors Targeting Major Telcos.

Cybereason discovered the threat actors exploited the Microsoft Exchange Server vulnerabilities to gain access to the telcos and to facilitate cyber espionage against politicians, law enforcement officials, business leaders, activists and dissidents. 

Div is an expert in hacking operations, forensics, reverse engineering, malware analysis, cryptography, and evasion. Previously, he served in key security forces agencies as commander of cyber security teams, where he received a Medal of Honor. Prior to Cybereason, Div founded a cyber security services company that provided services to government agencies.

He will also explore why it is important to be adaptive, flexible and diverse in security.
