  • Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Dennis York, Lead Incident Response Investigator, Symantec and Darian Lewis, Senior Principal Security Analyst, Symantec Recorded: Oct 18 2016 62 mins
    Did you know that just opening a compromised web page could allow dangerous code to install on a PC or smartphone? You don’t have to click “accept” for a download or software update to install malware on your machines and trigger an infection and the consequences can be enormous.

    Why you need to build 24 X 7 threat monitoring into your environment
    Ransomware is an extremely profitable type of attack. It only takes one network-connected device to expand a malware infection and hold an entire organization hostage for profit. Last year, the use of encryption as a weapon to hold companies’ and individuals’ critical data hostage grew by 35 percent.

    - Learn from our cyber security experts about what can happen in a ransomware attack, based on real-life events.

    -Understand how the malware entered the IT infrastructure of two different companies, and find out how long it stayed and the impact to these businesses.

    -Will show you how attacks are identified and remediated, as well as some best practices for handling ransomware attacks, should one occur in your company.

    Improve your line of defense against ransomware and minimize the loss of key data, money and intellectual property from your organization.

  • Data Protection 101: Follow and protect your critical data, wherever it lives Data Protection 101: Follow and protect your critical data, wherever it lives Sunil Choudrie, Global Solutions Marketing Manager Recorded: Sep 7 2016 57 mins
    When it comes to your sensitive data, how can you be sure that it is protected and none of it is leaving your environment?

    Organizations today face the following challenges:
    •Identifying the type of data that needs to be protected
    •Controlling access to data & ensuring identities aren’t exposed, especially in the face of significant regulatory fines
    •Prevent sensitive data from leaving the organization, mega-breaches & data loss is increasing year on year. Over half a billion personal records were stolen or lost in 2015, spear phishing campaigns targeting company employees increased by 55% in 2015

    Answer: Firstly allow the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands. Secondly Easily apply policies to control access and usage―in the cloud, on mobile devices, or on the network.

    Join Symantec for a webinar on the lessons learned regarding data protection across the many applications in your environment.

  • Hacking Hospitals Hacking Hospitals Axel Wirth, Distinguished Technical Architect, Symantec & Ted Harrington, Executive Partner, Independent Security Evaluators Recorded: Jun 8 2016 61 mins
    Patient health is at grave risk in the current digital era, as sophisticated adversaries utilize technology to perform digital attacks that can result in physical harm. While Healthcare IT typically prioritizes protecting patient records (PHI), this omits the crucial overall healthcare mission of championing patient health against possible attacks against the healthcare digital ecosystem.

    This webinar will present and analyze real world attack scenarios against the healthcare ecosystem, the mindset of hackers, and the complexity of constraints facing health IT security.

    Join us for this webinar as we:

    • Discuss why patient health is at risk and why it is a target for sophisticated adversaries
    • Investigate the complexity of constraints facing Health IT and the barriers that must be overcome to succeed in this effort
    • Highlight key findings from ISE’s groundbreaking research study, Hacking Hospitals*, including the types of healthcare systems investigated, the nature of the investigation, and the objectives of the assessments
    • Present a blueprint with actionable steps that IT Security leaders can follow to properly secure and protect their hospital IT infrastructure, sensitive information, and their patients
