Abstract: When it comes to endpoint security, a handful of threats make up the bulk of the most serious attack tools and tactics. According to a recent study, the most common critical-severity cybersecurity threat to endpoints was fileless malware. Fileless malware has been rapidly evolving. This is because digital threats have evolved far beyond signatures. Most threats we see today are polymorphic. They are able to create a whole new version or variant of themselves upon every new infection in order to fool basic AV. Through this session, I would describe the emerging fileless malware and the techniques they employ to evade detection.
