Citizen Lab Senior Security Analyst Seth Hardy and Security Analyst Katie Kleemola will be speaking at SecTor Security Conference, which will take place on 7-9 October 2013 at the MTCC in Toronto, Canada.

In their talk, scheduled on October 8 at 14:40-15:40 in room Tech 3 (801B), they will describe a few malware families that are actively being developed and used for the purpose of monitoring human rights activists and NGO workers. More importantly, the talk will cover in detail the ways that the individual threats were found, how they are strongly interconnected, and how they can be likely attributed to a single actor.

Hardy and Kleemola will also describe how this research is conducted as a small group and how civil society groups can protect themselves from threats with minimal resources.
