Nation-State and Cybercrime Gangs: Lines BlurCrowdStrike's Zeki Turedi Discusses Pseudo-Ransomware, False Flags, Leaked Toolkits
In the past 12 months, there's been a blistering series of high-impact attacks, including a marked increase in pseudo-ransomware attacks and supply chain subterfuge. "It's been a very interesting year from a cyber perspective," says Zeki Turedi of CrowdStrike, who highlights "the blurred lines between statecraft and criminal organizations."
But how much of this blurring is intentional, and how much of it is incidental?
In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Turedi discusses:
- Nation-state attacks;
- False flag operations;
- How cybercrime gangs have been grabbing leaked nation-state toolkits;
- Supply chain risks.
Turedi is the technology strategist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at CrowdStrike. He has extensive incident response and forensic experience within law enforcement, government and the private sector. His specialties include incident response, malware analysis, threat intelligence, digital forensics, network forensics, digital investigations, data loss prevention and advanced threat modeling.
