Webinar on APT predictions: thanks to all who joined us

Yesterday, Kaspersky Lab hosted the ‘Emerging Threats in the APT World: Predictions for 2015’ webinar. Special thank you to everyone who joined our discussion on how APTs will evolve in the coming year.

Kaspersky Lab’s webinar ‘Emerging Threats in the APT World: Predictions for 2015’ took place yesterday, and we would like to thank everyone who joined us.


APTs attracted special attention this year with a number of them being discovered by security vendors, including Kaspersky Lab. Our observations suggest that APTs will evolve next year towards further elusiveness, with attackers doing their best to conceal their activities.

“If we can call 2014 ‘sophisticated’, then the word for 2015 will be ‘elusive’. We believe that APT groups will evolve to become stealthier and sneakier in order to better avoid exposure. This year we’ve already discovered APT players using several zero-days, and we’ve observed new persistence and stealth techniques. We have used this to develop and deploy several new defense mechanisms for our users,” said Costin Raiu, Director of GReAT at Kaspersky Lab.

A full recording of the webinar featuring the insight of Costin Raiu, Director of Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) at Kaspersky Lab is available here. You can also access his presentation slides here.
