The enterprise attack surface is like an iceberg; there is a lot to it, most of which is beneath the surface. Security tools have focused on their ability to see what’s above the surface and don’t (or can’t) see the parts below that present a danger. Attackers, however, are looking at every possible way they can get in. And often these paths lie “beneath the surface,” are not detected by traditional tools, and are completely unknown to the enterprise.

- What attackers are doing to perform reconnaissance on you
- Where they focus their attention
- How you can use some of their processes to defend yourself (hint: automation is key)
