The Bad Guys Are Winning, So Now What?

With the continual release of zero-day exploits, ever-larger-scale botnets, and rampant spyware, attackers have compromised tens of millions of machines connected to the Internet. With clever attackers mixing social engineering, physical attacks, and phishing into their bag of tricks, their rate of successful penetration is both astounding and depressing. A central thesis of this talk is that a sufficiently determined (but not necessarily well-funded) attacker can compromise almost any organization with an Internet connection. The discussion will first analyze why this is so. We'll then look at the implications of such an environment for enterprises. How should information security priorities shift in light of this evolving threatscape and attack surface? What are the implications for system administrators, incident response teams, and even penetration testers? We'll also briefly look beyond the enterprise, and consider the military and national security issues associated with emerging threats and attacks.
