  • Ransomware: How to strategically Fight it, Without Breaking the Bank
    Ransomware: How to strategically Fight it, Without Breaking the Bank John Cloonan, head of products at Lastline Recorded: Oct 4 2017 64 mins
    Ransomware presents some unique challenges to organizations, regardless of the size, industry or geography. However, it has very distinct behavior relative to other kinds of malware. It actually tells you that an attack has taken place. From a defender's point of view, being alerted to an attack is far better than having it stay undetected in your systems. During this presentation, John Cloonan, head of products at Lastline, will review:

    - Common elements of today's malware strains
    - Effective strategies for combatting ransomware
    - What malware defenders can learn from ransomware

  • Why the Web Remains a Primary Ransomware Vector
    Why the Web Remains a Primary Ransomware Vector Greg Maudsley, Senior Director, Product Marketing at Menlo Security Recorded: Oct 13 2016 39 mins
    Ransomware attacks are globally pervasive, and only getting worse for retailers, hospitals and a number of other businesses. The number of strains of Ransomware is infinite, with more and more advanced versions coming to light every day, but the vectors through which attacks occur remain the same. 90% of malware is delivered via web and email, with dynamic web content dramatically increasing the risk to users. Of the top 50 most visited US sites in 2016, 42% were found to be running vulnerable versions of web-software code. Traditional approaches to cyber security are failing – distinguishing the good from the bad is no longer a reliable option and has a very costly impact on enterprises. One approach that has been developed to tackle the constantly evolving threat landscape is Isolation, which assumes that all active content poses a risk.

    Greg Maudsley, Senior Director, Product Marketing at Menlo Security will highlight the steps that must be taken to raise awareness of the reality of the Ransomware threat, and discuss the best ways in which to tackle this.
  • Using machines to combat criminals
    Using machines to combat criminals Lloyd Webb, Sales Engineering Director, Cylance Recorded: Oct 13 2016 39 mins
    2016 is turning out to be a landmark year in terms of Ransomware and there’s no sign of these threats slowing down any time soon. Ransomware is not new, it is just getting more sophisticated and is inflicting major damage to companies, organisations and individuals, shaping up to be a frighteningly lucrative year for cybercriminals, where any person with a computer can be exploited and used as a revenue source with the potential for vast profits.

    Learn how Cylance have revolutionized the industry by utilizing data science and security experts to provide a next-generation cybersecurity technology that proactively prevents, rather than detects the execution of advanced persistent threats and malware in real time before they ever cause harm.

    Many enterprise applications run on a CMS platform to enable administrators and editors to build and update content quickly.

  • 7 Things You Didn't Know About GDPR But Were Afraid To Ask
    7 Things You Didn't Know About GDPR But Were Afraid To Ask Shadi Razak, CTO of CyNation Recorded: Oct 7 2016 43 mins
    The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest change to data protection law in the world since the late 90’s. Every aspect of the old law has been overhauled and modernised. Businesses trading with the EU or handling EU citizens private data will need to comply with the GDPR come 25th May 2018. This mean almost all British organisations will have to adapt to the EU GDPR despite the latest Brexit vote. Accordingly, companies will be fully accountable for implementing a comprehensive data governance policy and appropriate security mechanisms. Non-compliance can result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of a company's global annual turnover, whichever is greater.

    The adaption process to the EU GDPR won’t be simple and easy one. It will take time and energy from businesses, especially SMBs. During this webinar we give the chance to understand the biggest changes to the current law, and learn the essential steps business need to get in place to be ready come May 2018. With the webinar's open and live format, you will have ample opportunity to engage in Q&A with our data privacy and security experts.
