In 2020 attackers are increasingly targeting firmware and hardware – going below the operating system to hide from traditional security solutions and gain persistence. Both nation state actors and criminals are exploiting vulnerable, exposed firmware on network and VPN devices, and recently a new UEFI rootkit dubbed #MosaicRegressor was found in the wild. We’ll discuss how and why attackers are targeting firmware and hardware, and the steps security professionals can take to gain visibility into this attack surface and protect enterprise devices.
