About the Program
The Malware and Cyber Threats (MCT) Program addresses the technical threats, along with other emerging dark web trends, that are the most impactful to our partners. Our state of the art malware lab is a resource for both NCFTA and partner analysts to run various malware samples in both virtual and ‘cold steel’ environments. As a result of this analysis and our long term infections, we are able to provide near real time feeds based on the indicators of compromise as identified in the various live infections. The feeds can be received in various formats and are available via several platforms. Additionally, we run several honey pots, to include an Internet of Things (IoT), smart phones with certain applications of interest, and even an Industrial Control Systems (ICS) environment.
‘Dark Web’ and Other Underground Website Research
NCFTA has multi-lingual analysts who have years of experience navigating various underground forums, social media platforms, underground marketplaces, utilizing peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, and even internet relay chat servers (IRC). Through both manual and automated means, we are able to provide in-depth insight into what type of activity is occurring that may impact your organization.
