On Tuesday, February 20, the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering (DIAG) will host a seminar entitled “How Do the United States Identify, Respond and Mitigate Persistent Cyber Threats?”

The seminar will be held by Laura Galante, "Cyber Statecraft Initiative” Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. Laura Galante will illustrate the United States’ experience in identifying, reacting and mitigating advanced persistent threats (APT) as part of ICT security, discussing both government and private sector tactics to monitor the web, profile APTs and identify the source of cyber-threats.

Laura Galante analyses how states use cyberspace, or more precisely, our information space. She describes a domain where militaries, intelligence services, criminal groups, and individuals actively pursue their interests—with far fewer restraints than in the physical world.

A leading voice on information operations and intelligence analysis, she founded Galante Strategies in spring 2017 to assist governments and corporations in analysing and responding to cyber and information threats.

Previously as Director of Global Intelligence at the cybersecurity company FireEye Inc., her teams investigated network activity, profiled and attributed advanced cyber threats. A founding member of the Mandiant (FireEye-acquired) Intelligence, her work has included leading strategic analysis, developing intelligence capabilities and offerings, and directing publications including: APT28: A Window into Russia’s State Cyber Espionage; Red Line Drawn: China Recalculates its Use of Cyber Espionage; and Hacking the Street? FIN4 Likely Playing the Market among others.
