  • The PowerShell Risk: Understanding and Avoiding PowerShell Attacks
    The PowerShell Risk: Understanding and Avoiding PowerShell Attacks Lee Lawson, Special Operation Resercher, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Recorded: Jun 20 2017 62 mins
    In a recent SecureWorks engagement, 98.5% of the 3,477 commands executed by threat actors were native to the Windows operating system.

    PowerShell is a popular tool that Microsoft has been including with the Windows OS since 2009, but malicious PowerShell use is rivaling ransomware in popularity with threat actors. Security products focused on preventing endpoint threats are often not enough to differentiate legitimate from malicious PowerShell use. Join us for a discussion of why PowerShell is so risky, how SecureWorks researchers identify PowerShell threats, and how you can defend your organization.

    SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit - Special Operations Researcher, Lee Lawson, will discuss how security leaders and practitioners can leverage his experience to reduce the risk and understand how to defend against PowerShell threats in your organizations.

    You Will Learn:
    • What PowerShell is and how it is used in “living off the land” attacks
    • Why built-in tools like PowerShell are so attractive to threat actors
    • Examples of malicious PowerShell use
    • How to defend your organization against common methods to evade prevention and detection
  • Modernizing Security Operations: Preparing to Better Secure Your Organization
    Modernizing Security Operations: Preparing to Better Secure Your Organization Travis Wiggins, Principal Cyber Security Operations Consultant, SecureWorks Recorded: May 2 2017 59 mins
    According to a recent SANS report, more than 60 percent of large-company CISOs brief the board at least annually and by the end of 2018, 70 percent of all boards will require CISOs to brief them quarterly.^

    Deciding to what degree your security operations should be in-house vs outsourced is a major decision with significant cost and resource ramifications. Currently organizations globally face persistent security challenges, which collectively require people, process, technology, and strategy to address. This collection of challenges are further complicated by evolving business needs; expanding toolsets and platform options; and staffing retention and attrition. Join us to learn how a modern approach to security operations can help address these challenges.

    SecureWorks Principal Cyber Security Operations Consultant and former Security Operations Center (SOC) manager, Travis Wiggins, will discuss how security leaders and practitioners can leverage his experience to more clearly define the requirements and make informed decisions about protecting your organization.

    You Will Learn:
    • Why making the right security operations decisions is critical to reduce business risk
    • What to consider when planning a SOC and how to position the plan to leaders
    • How to address talent retention, accountability, and scalability
    • Why strategy and proper tools are key components in a successful SOC implementation

    Cloud agility and security: Misperceptions dispelled Ross Kinder, Senior Security Researcher, SecureWorks Recorded: Oct 18 2016 61 mins
    Real world strategies for migrating to the cloud securely

    When companies move their IT assets to the cloud, they have an opportunity to realize cost savings, accelerate innovation and improve IT performance. Unfortunately, the utility of the cloud is constrained by perceptions and misperceptions about security and control. And even without appropriate controls in place, organizations are moving to the cloud at a very fast pace.

    For those of us responsible for security, this is a terrifying proposition--our most precious assets are seemingly moving outside of our control. However, perhaps, the cloud is more secure than you realize. Perhaps the cloud is a chance for a restart for how your organization looks at security of its data and applications. In this webcast, we’ll dispel some of the misperceptions that exist and jump right into both “lift and shift” and cloud native strategies for migrating to the cloud securely. Knowledge is power and this is an opportunity to advance your team’s understanding of the cloud and how to accelerate the transition.

    You will learn how to:
    - Develop an organization-wide cloud strategy
    - Assess your risk as you adopt cloud solutions
    - Identify common practices and frameworks for cloud migrations
    - Determine which cloud migration architecture meets your business objectives
