Survey Says: Balancing the Art & Science of Survey Design and Analysis

 

LinkedIn

Description

To many, surveys are super quick and easy– questions can be thrown together with a snap of the finger. While surveys are a great tool to help uncover insights about our users’ behaviors, attitudes, and motivations, we can fall into the trap of writing questions that only meet our goals but are difficult for the respondent to answer. As a result, it can make it hard for us to decipher and make meaning of their responses, come time to analyze the data.

In this workshop, Fiyin, a UXR Lead from JPMorgan Chase, will take you through the art and science of survey design and share the key principles that undergird creating and analyzing a quality survey. You will leave this talk feeling equipped to take on your next survey project armed with the knowledge about the Do’s and Don’ts of surveys while striking that delicate balance to get at meaningful data and arrive at impactful conclusions.

Cyber Espionage Unveiled: A Deep Dive into Living-off-the-Land (LOTL) Techniques

 

Huralain Mohamed LinkedIn

Kajhon Soyini LinkedIn

Description

In an era defined by cyber threats, "Cyber Espionage Unveiled: A Deep Dive into LOTL Techniques" offers an immersive walk-through of a sinister landscape of targeted, stealthy malicious activities. This workshop unravels the covert operations of Volt Typhoon, a state-sponsored actor based in China, with a primary focus on espionage and information gathering. The spotlight of this event is the alarming breach incident in Guam earlier this year in May, 2023, where a critical infrastructure company became a prime target, revealing the modus operandi of this threat actor.

 

Volt Typhoon, known for its relentless pursuit of post-compromise credential access and network system discovery, poses a significant threat to critical infrastructure organizations across the United States. The campaign's unique feature is its dedication to espionage while evading detection for as long as possible, making it a pressing concern for security experts.
