Tim Appleby, Sr. Manager, Security Program Assessments, Mandiant Consulting.
Cybersecurity awareness is growing as more organizations learn they are vulnerable to an attack. While compliance with regulatory and security audit requirements provides a starting point, it alone will not keep the organization safe. An effective security program needs to be multifaceted, integrating people, processes and technologies across all layers of the organization. The specifics vary due to industry, size and geographic presence, as well the level of risk the organization is willing to accept.
Mandiant Sr. Manager Tim Appleby will discuss the benefits of proactive preparedness and 10 key areas that should be considered in order to form a holistic security program, and discuss how priorities can vary based on industry, size and geography.
Are you prepared?
It’s headline news. Cyber attackers are increasingly more sophisticated and data breaches are becoming common place. Some say “it’s not a question of if you’ll be breached, but when”. You need a plan.
Even the most security-conscious organizations are not prepared for the necessary actions needed to gain control after a cyberattack. Preparing an emergency response communication plan keeps stakeholders informed following a breach. Taking an early communication approach will combat rumor and conjecture. The breach is now a business problem. From employees and customers to partner and suppliers – people need to be confident the situation is being addressed, managed, and resolved.
Communication is key.
Smart organizations view their security crisis-communication plan as an ongoing necessity. Get ahead of the reactive situation and decrease the uncertainty. Involve the company’s top leaders across the cross-functional organization. Create a framework for answering questions honestly and with integrity. Share information up front and often. Frequent detailed communication couple with action timelines creates confidence.
Get operational in real time.
You can’t control the communication cycle without having done some work in advance. A well-developed crisis response plan with different scenarios will train your team to operate in real time when the inevitable occurs. You can take control of the situation with timely communications.
Be prepared. Join us for our upcoming webinar to learn how to build a strong crisis-communication foundation for your organization.
The security paradigm for nearly two decades has been to increasingly invest in technology. These solutions have not only failed to solve the problem but have made the challenge more complex. Even if true threats are detected, they are lost in a sea of alerts and lack the context to prioritize and build response. This security posture is only exacerbated by the skills deficit currently facing the industry.
In this webinar, we look at the emergence of a new security-as-a-service paradigm and the capabilities required to help organizations reduce risk and time to protection. The discussion will cover how the cost, specialization and complexity of cyber defense have positioned security to follow other markets in adopting an “as-a-service” paradigm.
We will also address the capabilities that define an ideal security-as-a-service partner such as:
•the availability of security expertise
•a broad intelligence capability and
•flexible deployment options
Not only does this approach improve a security posture and reduce risk but it does so with a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Register today to learn more about this emerging security-as-a-service model.
As cyberattacks become more frequent, more sophisticated, and more costly, businesses are increasingly turning to cyber insurance to transfer some of the risk. In turn, insurance underwriters are challenged by the complexity of assessing cyber risk, and need a simple yet objective methodology to assist in decision making.
In response to this, Chubb has developed a new model for cyber underwriting, Cyber COPETM. Intended to simplify and improve the assessment of both cyber and privacy risks, this methodology is based on COPE, a time-tested underwriting model that has been used by property underwriters to analyze risk for nearly 300 years.
Mandiant Consulting has teamed with Chubb to create a Cyber Risk Insurance Assessment Process that aligns with the new Cyber COPETM methodology to allow a more effective evaluation of an insured’s cyber and privacy risk.
In this webinar, experts from Mandiant Consulting and Chubb will discuss the Cyber COPETM methodology, Mandiant's new CIRA service, and how organizations can use both to better understand their cyber and privacy risks.
Beginning in January 2016, Mandiant identified a financially-motivated threat actor that launched several tailored, spear-phishing campaigns—targeting industries that process large volumes of consumer credit cards such as retail, restaurant, and hospitality. To date, Mandiant has seen this group at over 150 organizations. This group is interesting due to the large number of organizations they quickly targeted, how quickly they shift tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs), and their unusual persistence in attempting to re-compromise an organization after remediation.
During this conversation, we will walk through examples from several Mandiant investigations of this groups activity. We will take a technical look at this threat actor's TTPs as well as talk about what to look for to determine if they are active in your environment.

According to the latest M-Trends report, 53 percent of network compromises are identified by an external organization rather than the internal IT department. This is especially apparent in the hospitality industry where massive amounts of customer data and credit card information are stored. Now more than ever, it’s critical to understand the security posture of your network and implement comprehensive security solutions that help you rapidly detect, analyze and contain potential threats.
Join us and learn how a Fortune 500 company Gaming/Hospitality company gained instant visibility of previously unknown devices and deployed policy-based access controls in days. Our special guest customer will comment on the state of threats to hospitality companies and discuss how FireEye Network Threat Prevention Platform (NX Series) and ForeScout CounterACT® work together to provide a holistic approach to risk mitigation and threat management.
Gain visibility into what and who is on your network—especially un-managed devices. Improve your defenses against advanced threats and create a policy based automated response to potential threats.
Medical devices (biomed) introduce many cybersecurity challenges into healthcare delivery organizations, but what can you do? Connecting medical devices to your network and in turn to your physicians and EMR system increases clinical workflow while opening security holes. Much is out of your control. Device manufacturers control patch cycles and vulnerabilities persist so you segment your network which introduces administration overhead and increases the possibility of breaches due to misconfigurations. As you try harder to improve efficiency, is your environment becoming less secure due to improved connectivity? And what about patient safety when medical devices are connected directly to patients?
Join Dan McWhorter, Chief Intelligence Strategist at FireEye, and John Klassen, Sr Director Solutions Marketing, on this webinar to learn:
•The impact on Healthcare cybersecurity from complex medical device ecosystems
•What kind of attacks connected medical devices are vulnerable to
•Strategies and tools to lower your risk from compromised devices

Intrusion investigations are a response to the detection of a threat in the environment. Organizations are investing heavily in technology, training, and personnel who can quickly detect and respond to threats after they’ve gained some amount of access to their environments. It’s this process that leads to containment and gives businesses back control.
Companies are getting better at detecting threats as a result, but actors may still have been in the environment for several months before that critical moment when tools and personnel finally detect the bump in the night and the investigative process can begin.
During this conversation, we’ll look at the security ecosystem and some of the reasons why technologies that react to threat activity may not be adequate in this golden age of cyber threats. We’ll also discuss a few of the most important skillsets necessary to cultivate and why personnel and expertise are your secret weapons. Lastly, we’ll suggest some of the most effective sources of evidence to examine as well as some of the analysis techniques you should be using to filter through the noise.
No question about it: Information security—or, more precisely, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and information-technology leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many executives and managers fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyber attacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review Custom in February 2016. Commissioned by Hewlett Packard Enterprises Security Services and FireEye, join our experts as they discuss this industry survey to uncover:
•Implications of breach impacts for organizations
•Benefits of a risk management strategies
•Current trends in information-security threats
Over the last decade, cyber security has evolved from a niche concern confined to IT professionals to a major priority for CEOs and boards of directors. Company leaders are now charged with managing cyber risk with the same urgency that they have managed traditional business risk.
The emergence of cyber risk as a centerpiece of risk management is being fueled by new and increasingly complex threats. Organizations must deal with a quickly evolving set of threats to their information systems and data. Many of these threats were unimaginable just a few years ago.
In this discussion, we explain the different forms of cyber risk and show how the threat level has risen in recent years. We also provide a basic framework for managing cyber risk, and finally, we pose five key questions business leaders should ask themselves to ensure their security posture is sufficiently robust and resilient to meet evolving threats.
