I Spied on Your Business: Signs to look for corporate espionage and the SMB risks with Karim Hijazi
/

Karim Hijazi has been at the forefront of attacker counterintelligence and infiltration research for the last decade, developing new ways for security teams to clandestinely monitor hackers and anticipate attacks before they happen. Prior to launching Prevailion, Karim was the founder/CEO of Unveillance, an early pioneer in advanced threat intelligence and the first cloud-based data leak intelligence platform. Karim successfully exited Unveillance in 2012 with an acquisition by Mandiant, and he was then appointed as Mandiant’s new director of intelligence. While at Mandiant, Karim played an important role in that company’s well-known APT1 report released in 2013, which definitively linked the People’s Liberation Army of China to widespread cyber espionage activity against US interests. Mandiant was acquired by FireEye soon after.

During the hacktivist heydays of the early 2010s, Karim engaged in a well-documented battle with the Anonymous offshoot “LulzSec,” after the group compromised an InfraGard database. Karim’s confrontation with the group was featured in Parmy Olson’s book, “We Are Anonymous,” as well as national media like CNN and CNET. During the Arab Spring, Karim also served as a key contributor to the Cyber Security Forum Initiative’s “Project Cyber Dawn Libya,” which provided the first in-depth look at Libyan cyber warfare capabilities and defenses. CSFI’s membership includes military officials, academics and business leaders from the US and around the world.
