“The operation against cellular providers is at a massive scale. This isn’t a smash and grab campaign. These hackers have specific motives and are running a highly targeted, operation to own the networks and track a very targeted list of high-profile individuals,” said Div.

Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, today announced that its CEO and Co-founder Lior Div today gave a keynote address at SoftBank World at the Prince Park Tower in Tokyo.
Div’s keynote address focused on Cybereason’s ‘Operation Soft Cell,’ an ongoing investigation into a massive, advanced espionage campaign targeting nearly a dozen global telecommunications providers. Cybereason’s nearly year-long investigation discovered commercial, privately owned critical infrastructure companies are tools being used in state-sponsored espionage and cyber war.
“The operation against cellular providers is at a massive scale. This isn’t a smash and grab campaign to steal money or social security numbers. These hackers have very specific motives and are running a highly targeted, persistent operation to own the networks and track a very targeted list of high-profile individuals on different continents,” said Div.
The state-sponsored adversaries have stolen personally identifiable information such as billing data, call detail records and credentials. The damage to the targeted individuals can go all the way to fully tracking of locations, meetings and texts. Hundreds of gigabytes of call data records were stolen each time the hackers exfiltrated data.
Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, gives the advantage back to the defender through a completely new approach to cybersecurity. Cybereason offers endpoint detection and response (EDR), next-generation antivirus (NGAV), and active monitoring services, powered by its cross-machine correlation engine. The Cybereason suite of products provides unmatched visibility, increases analyst efficiency and effectiveness, and reduces security risk. Cybereason is privately held, has raised $189 million from top-tier VCs, and is headquartered in Boston, with offices in London, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Tokyo.
