Episode Summary

In this week’s episode, Jon Murchison, founder and CEO, is joined by David Rushmer, Director of Threat Research, and Xavier Salinas, VP of Threat Operations, to discuss the state-sponsored threat, HAFNIUM, identified by Microsoft. They dive deeper into HAFNIUM’s tradecraft, tactics, and unique characteristics. Rushmer additionally expands on his experience in the threat research and intelligence space, sharing advice for budding security professionals.

With hacker groups constantly advancing their tradecraft efforts, an around-the-clock true Managed Detection and Response service is necessary. Detection and response times often determine whether threat actors, like HAFNIUM, succeed in their efforts, or not.
