What Happens in an Attack?

Pierre-Marc Bureau, Malware Researcher at ESET
Most Internet users have been in contact with malicious software (malware) and most of us understand these threats should be avoided. Far less people understand what happens when a computer is attacked, more precisely, what are the objectives of the attackers and how these attacks could affect your business?
We will present various attacks that have been recently witnessed which illustrate the different motivations of malware creators and operators. We will also show how banking trojans such as Win32/Gataka can attack on alternative operating systems such as OSX/Flashback. Finally, we will cover cases of cyber espionage with the case of ACAD/Medre.
Join Pierre-Marc Bureau, Mallware Researcher at ESET as he shows what happens in an attack and how to protect your business.

  • Join us for this live webinar where we will walk through a real-world example in which FireEye Managed Defense analysts utilized the FireEye Platform’s MVX virtual machine technology and endpoint response capabilities to identify, alert, and remediate an active Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack.

    In this case study we will cover:

    • How the attacker executed a “smash-and-grab” attack aimed at stealing intellectual property.
    • How FireEye detected the attack as it was beginning and re-secured the network and prevented sensitive data from leaving the client’s networks.
    • Best practices for investigating and responding to similar attacks.
  • Today most companies are witnessing an explosion in the amount of data that they store. According to recent estimates, large databases grow by 65% year over year and 85% of the data contained in these large databases is inactive. This often out-of-control data growth stems from a variety of sources and can have a negative impact on application performance, database management tasks, and overall total costs.

    During this webinar, learn how you can improve application performance while simplifying IT for Oracle applications with Informatica Smart Partitioning and Oracle ZS3 storage appliance.

    In this event, we will share how the combination of Oracle Tiered Storage and Informatica Data Archive Smart Partitioning:
    Reduces the cost of data by enabling storage tiering and compression of referentially intact data partitions
    Improves application performance up to a factor of 6X or more by automatically optimizing datasets for user requests
    Eliminates complex archiving strategies and provides full and rapid access to archived data from the native Oracle Application
  • Encryption, and cryptography in general, has been thrust into the spotlight as a critical technology for combating surveillance, data breaches, insider threats, and more. But encryption is no silver bullet, and the quality of its implementation is the major determining factor in the protection it actually provides. Join us on Thursday April 24 to learn about:
    •Five ways you can measure the quality, or trust level, your crypto systems provide
    •Effective strategies for dealing with the key management pain many organizations are starting to feel as they increase their deployment of cryptography
    •Use cases for strong cryptography and trusted key management with hardware security modules (HSMs)
  • Protiviti's IT Priorities Survey results reveal 2/3 companies are going through a major IT transformation in 2014. Join Protiviti's IT Consulting managing directors to discuss why.
  • Security professionals are increasingly realizing that protecting executives and corporate assets requires more than just “guns and guards.” It requires a proactive strategy to identify and prevent a threat, rather than reacting to one. So how can security professionals be proactive and minimize the threats that originate from the Internet?

    In this webcast we’ll look at how you can use an individual’s online “footprint” to identify potential threats and develop a more effective security plan. We’ll also present a case study of one of our own executives and show why online threat intelligence is not the same as news alerts or monitoring social media for brand buzz.
  • Today's organizations are moving more interactions online through web, mobile and API-enabled web services to empower their customers and increase revenue. Managing the high volume of customer identities and enabling secure interactions across a set of web, mobile and hybrid apps, from a variety of different devices can be challenging.
    On April 24th at 1pm ET, please join David Gormley, Director, Security Solutions for CA Technologies, to learn how you can securely accelerate the delivery of new applications and services, while improving the customer experience across multiple channels of interaction.

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.
