Session: Catching Chinese Actors — A Game of Cat and Mouse

Date: Saturday, January 21, 2023

Time: 3 PM ET

Speaker: Mao Sui

Chinese-speaking actors continue to pose threats to organizations globally. It is critical for cybersecurity specialists to be prepared against these threat actors by understanding China’s underground ecosystem and seeing how its evolution through a clear lens.

This presentation will explain China’s tightly controlled internet environment and highlight how Chinese actors operate under the central government’s frequent crackdowns. I will take a deeper look at individual threat actors to pivot unique TTPs, including their choices of products, communication platforms, and payment methods. Additionally, I will analyze existing campaigns to gauge how threat groups and law enforcement continue to evolve under Beijing’s low tolerance of cybercrime. Information and data analysis included in this presentation will help cybersecurity specialists predict future trends and protect their organizations against threats originating from China.
