Threats from within the enterprise can pose the biggest cybersecurity risk to the organisation. Whether intentionally or accidentally, users with legitimate credentials can go about the network without triggering suspicion or alert, making their unauthorised activity difficult to detect. Insider threat activity can sometimes hide in plain sight, but what happens when people deliberately cover their tracks?
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Where to look for suspicious activity
- How to set up traps that will catch malicious insiders
- What finding paths across seemingly disparate data can reveal.
According to a 2016 industry report, employees cause 77 percent of internal security breaches. Find out who is causing yours.
Join Nuix’s and (ISC)² on Jun 28 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) and uncover the six hidden signs that help you detect the presence of insider threat activity.
Presenter: Jon Piercey, SVP Security & Intelligence APAC, Nuix
Moderator: Ir. Tejinder Singh, Senior Development Expert,T-Systems Malaysia SGA Security Engineering
As the security industry has continued to underinvest in the human element of security, phishing has become the top attack vector for cyber criminals. Breaches continue to occur in record numbers, identification takes an exorbitantly long time, and the most preferred target is an organization’s human assets. Empowering human assets to provide vetted intelligence into your incident response teams is often overlooked. Every organization has these human sensors, and there’s a natural desire for these employees to want to help.
In this presentation, you will learn:
• Why the cybersecurity industry is broken
• How to reduce susceptibility to human-targeted attacks
• How to empower users to become human sensors to recognize and report suspected attacks
Join PhishMe and (ISC)² on Jun 21 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) and learn how you can empower your team and protect your organization from phishing attacks.
As an organization that delivers and protects 15-30% of the world’s web traffic on a daily basis, Akamai is uniquely positioned to observe a large amount of attacks ranging from 20 malicious HTTP requests containing SQL injection to DDoS attacks up to 650 Gbps. Our security experts analyze this information and share trends, observations, and findings in our quarterly State of the Internet / Security Report. We will present this information and associated insights in this webinar series.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• A summary of global findings from the State of the Internet Report
• Attack statistics for APJ
• How IoT botnets have changed the attack topology in APJ
• The responsibilities for security of IoT
Join Akamai and (ISC)² on May 24 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) for an overview and analysis of traffic and trends from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web application attacks.
In recent years, cybercriminals have organized, automated and outsourced fraud techniques, resulting in an increase in commercial packages of complex threats. This productization of cybercrime is making it harder for organizations to keep up: the tools that overworked security teams rely on to discover and mitigate vulnerabilities don’t match the exploit tactics used by the criminals. So, what is the best approach in light of this dynamic threat landscape? How should security leaders stand up to the growing threat of industrialized cybercrime?
Recent reports show that the majority of successful breaches are executed by threat actors that use and re-use a subset of old vulnerabilities whose exploits are being commercially exchanged in the “Dark Web.” By identifying these vulnerabilities — those for which exploits exist in the wild and are being used in attacks — and combining this information with CVSS scores and contextual intelligence of an organization’s IT environment, security leaders can change the game. They gain a true understanding of not only the potential impact and severity of a vulnerability but also the probability of exploitation. This threat-centric vulnerability management augments gradual risk reduction by considering multiple factors inside and outside the organization. It’s a new approach to vulnerability management that requires comprehensive understanding of an organization’s attack surface combined with the prioritization of vulnerabilities by potential, imminent and actual threat levels. Using this approach, security leaders gain the advantage of integrated intelligence, including what vulnerabilities are truly being targeted by adversaries and threat actors in the wild.
Join Skybox Security and (ISC)² on May 10 (Wed) at 12:00 noon (Hong Kong time) to learn more about Commercialized Crimeware and Threat-Centric Vulnerability Management.
The Nuix Black Report takes a unique perspective on cybersecurity. Most security industry reports compile data about incidents that have already taken place or trends in data breaches—but these are clearly the symptoms of a deeper problem. Instead, Nuix has focused on the source of the threat landscape: the attackers themselves.
Join this webinar with report author and Nuix Chief Information Security Officer Chris Pogue to discover the true nexus between attacker methodology and defensive posture:
• Which countermeasures will actually improve your security posture (they’re not the ones you think)?
• What is the best spend for your security dollar and why?
• If hackers could speak to your CEO or board of directors, what would they say?
Join Nuix and (ISC)² on Mar 1 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) and find out what hackers are really thinking.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is in all full swing with the Internet at its core. While the Internet is connecting everyone and everything it also connects us to a variety of nefarious threat actors, who have found ways to exploit and monetize many aspects of our digital world. In recent times, one area has been DDoS, which has become one of the top cyber threats du jour.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Historical developments in the DDoS threat landscape
- How criminal operators are building out their botnets – discover, infect, operate and maintain
- Technical examination of new botnet trends such as the Mirai IoT botnet
- Architectural concepts and design for DDoS mitigation solutions - covering cloud and data centre environments
- Response strategies to defending and responding to DDoS attacks
- Predictions for future and next steps.
Join Akamai and (ISC)² on Feb 15 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) and learn about the DDoS threats of past, present and future.
