Hinne Hettema

Dr Hinne Hettema studied theoretical chemistry (PhD 1993) and philosophy (PhD 2012). He currently works as the IT security team lead at the University of Auckland, and is a lecturer in cyber security at Unitec. As a theoretical chemist, he played with the supercomputers of the time. His first computer was hacked in 1991, after which event he developed an enduring interest in cyber security. He developed that interest further while working as an IT consultant and architect. He currently leads his own security team.

Presentation Title
Welcome to the after-hack party: how to detect and mitigate the pivot

First hacks are seldom final hacks. Usually attackers are interested in some area other than their first point of entry. The process of laterally moving through the network depends crucially on pivoting: elevating privileges, installing additional hacking tools, and moving closer to the final target. While security practices to detect and mitigate ‘first hacks’ are well documented, instrumented and implemented in most organisations, processes and tools to detect pivoting and lateral movement are less common. I focus on the mechanism of the pivot and what we can do as defenders to detect and mitigate further intrusions into the networks we are tasked with protecting.
