Endgame Chief Social Scientist Andrea Little Limbago to Present “Bots, Trolls, Warriors & The Path Ahead” Solo Talk at SXSW
AUSTIN, TX - March 7, 2018 - Endgame, the leader in endpoint protection against targeted attacks, is proud to announce that Dr. Andrea Little Limbago will be presenting on attackers’ increasing deployment of bots, trolls, and warriors for both opportunistic and targeted attacks at the upcoming SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. The talk, entitled “Bots, Trolls, Warriors & The Path Ahead,” will consider these growing threats—both from advanced cyber warriors and organized disinformation troll armies—and the requisite balance of policy and technological innovation needed to address the issue. The talk is scheduled for Thursday, March 15 at 12:30pm CST in Room 201-202 at the JW Marriott, 101 E. 2nd Street.
“As the digital domain becomes an increasingly sophisticated playground for bad actors, attackers are expanding their toolkits to include bots, trolls, and warriors for both opportunistic and targeted attacks,” said Dr. Little Limbago. “Beyond what we saw in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, there have been numerous instances around the world of groups using a combination of activities to disrupt or influence processes, attack or degrade infrastructure, and even take control over or destroy digital systems. Going forward, we need a combination of policy and technological innovations to advance information security and protect our data integrity, democracy, security, and privacy.”
Dr. Andrea Little Limbago is a computational social scientist, cybersecurity researcher, writer, keynote speaker, quant analyst and national security expert. As Chief Social Scientist at Endgame, she directs the company’s technical content and independent research on cyber and geopolitics, while also advocating for greater inclusivity and representation in tech and national security. Dr. Limbago is a visiting fellow at the National Security Institute at George Mason, a data analytics industry advisory board member at George Washington. She has previously presented at SOCOM’s Global Synch, DerbyCon, Enigma, O’Reilly Security, BSidesLV, and numerous other events.
“The problems that Andrea is tackling, from the tools hackers are using to compromise systems to the policy and technology needed to stop them, are some of the most urgent challenges we’re facing across enterprise security,” said Nate Fick, CEO of Endgame. “Andrea has been researching and documenting these evolving trends closely and is one of the security community’s foremost experts in delivering that research in a way that is both novel and accessible.”
