Presentation: Genetic Malware Analysis

Abstract: Software is evolutionary. All software, whether legitimate or malicious, is comprised of previously written code. Developers reuse code to make their work more efficient and to bring tools to market faster. The same approach applies for malware authors who leverage code reuse when launching new campaigns.

Intezer CEO Itai Tevet will explain the concept of Genetic Malware Analysis and how taking a biological approach to cybersecurity can arm defenders with critical information for profiling threat actor capabilities and detecting and classifying advanced cyber threats including evasive malware and in-memory threats.
