Lessons from The Cheshire Cat in Concealment & Misdirection

Cyber deception has come a long way from deploying honeypots on the external interface to research attack activity. Nowadays, deception technology has matured such that savvy CISOs consider it a necessary function of a Zero Trust Architecture, particularly with the following use cases:

• Insider threat detection
• Ransomware
• Active Directory protection
• Identity and credential protection
• Unmanaged device protection

Today, there is more to modern deception than just deploying bait and decoys inside the network. Innovations in concealment technology specifically derail attackers using advanced credential attack techniques. By hiding and denying access to sensitive or privileged production credentials, objects, and data, attackers only see the bait at the endpoints and in Active Directory.

Unleash the Cheshire Cat to bring chaos to attackers. Join this session to learn about deception’s progression from simple honeypots and honeytokens, its place in a zero-trust environment, and concealment’s role in misdirecting and misinforming attackers.
