Flash Talks is an exclusive Flashpoint speaker series where our analysts share insights from the Deep & Dark Web and examine today's increasingly complex threat landscape.



This year, Hamburg, Germany will host the twelfth G20 Summit on July 7 and July 8, 2017, during which state and government officials, central banks and finance ministers from 20 of the world's largest economies will meet at the Messehallen Convention Center. Large protests are expected, with a focus on anti-capitalism, anti-fascism, and President Trump's policies regarding environmental protection.

Topics Covered:
 •  Overview of historical G20 cyber campaigns (phishing emails, "watering hole" attacks, and malware-laced USB drives)
 •  Anticipated physical and cyber threats to this year's Summit
 •  Notable extremist groups planning acts of vandalism
 •  Contingency plan recommendations for businesses operating within the vicinity of Hamburg to protect the safety of their human and property assets
