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.

Why have two-factor authentication (2FA) in the workplace? Even if you’ve instituted password management best practices, employees will still use their work password on other websites, write their passwords on sticky notes, or use their nicknames or birthdays without a second thought—and put your business at risk.
With new PCI-DSS regulations surrounding multi-factor authentication requirements coming up on Oct. 31, it’s time to get up to speed on this proactive technology.
In this webinar, Robert Westervelt, research manager of IDC’s Security Products group, and ESET’s solutions engineer Ben Reed will provide an in-depth overview of the following:
•Account credential theft: What can be done to prevent employees from falling into a trap?
•How 2FA/multi-factor authentication can reduce the risk of account hijacking, mitigate weak passwords and help satisfy compliance requirements.
•The types of multifactor authentication solutions available on the market and how it can contribute to creating a stronger security culture in the workplace.

IT organizations have hit a breaking point in siloed management tools to address one of the most critical issues today - cybersecurity hygiene. In particular, numerous point solutions targeting the endpoints drive cost, complexity, and other challenges. New investments in cloud, distributed workforces and increasing numbers of connected devices only exasperate this problem. Addressing cybersecurity hygiene means that critical actions must be made on demand versus scheduled. Teams must also have confidence that assessment results and remediation actions are complete.
Come learn about the key issues why cybersecurity hygiene fails in most organization. We’ll discuss in depth how the platform approach and speed of Tanium are poised to fix this critical problem. Eric Hanselman, 451 Chief Analyst, and Erik Kristiansen, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Tanium will discuss.
Your Big Data strategy is only as good as the quality of your data. Today, deriving business value from data depends on how well your company can capture, cleanse, integrate and manage data.
Deriving business value from data depends on how well your company can capture, cleanse, integrate and manage data. During this webinar, we will discuss how to eliminate the challenges to Big Data management inside Hadoop including how to drive faster access to usable information across the enterprise. We’ll also discuss how to create an enterprise data lake where data is captured, cleansed, linked and structured in a consistent way. The speakers will be Justin Sears, Senior Manager, Product Marketing from Hortonworks and Jamie Keeffe, Product Marketing Manager from RedPoint Global.
Gartner recently placed Big Data in its “trough of disillusionment,” reflective of many leaders’ struggle to prove the value of Hadoop within their organization. While the promise of enhanced data integration and enrichment is obvious, measurable results have remained elusive. This episode of The Briefing Room will outline how to successfully tie Big Data to existing business applications, preventing your next Hadoop project from being another “Big Data letdown.”
Learn from veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he discusses the importance of converging enterprise data integration with intelligence and scalability. He’ll be briefed by George Corugedo of RedPoint Global, who will provide concrete examples of how the convergence of scalable cloud platforms, ever-expanding data sources and intelligent execution can turn the Big Data hype into demonstrable business value.
CMDB Implementation is one of the most complicated of any ITSM programmes an organisation can undertake. The difficulties in creating a toolset, capable of linking hundreds of thousands of interconnected bits of data together in a meaningful manner while also supporting a highly fluid environment with dozens of changes each week, are formidable indeed.
Join Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant EMEA, as he discusses the Pink Elephant approach to create a CMDB in the real world. He will demonstrate the critical importance of the scoping session and understanding the organisations requirements to ensure the CMDB supports the business. Peter will then show you how to turn those requirements into concrete actions to map and create your CMDB.
Faisal Usmani, Business Development and Strategy Lead for Comms at Cyient EMEA, will build on Peter’s theme; detailing how an effective CMDB implementation forms the basis for ITSM solutions. He will cite a case study that shows how this translates into a real world operational scenario that utilises actionable dashboards and provide valuable insights into your service performance at different levels within your organisation.
At the end of the session you should know the importance of being able to ask your ITSM organisation ‘For our CMDB, do we need a battle tank or body armour?’’
Today’s cutting-edge companies are viewing their customers within the context of a decade or more of interactions across multiple customer channels.

Avec le degré de maturité et le niveau de menace atteint par les ransomwares au cours de l’an dernier, comment pouvez-vous être sûrs que votre infrastructure IT est réellement protégée et que vous êtes prêt à parer à une attaque ?
Aujourd’hui, les responsables sécurité sont confrontés à :
•un manque de renseignements exploitables sur les menaces, qui leur permettraient de mieux cerner les acteurs et les campagnes susceptibles de viser leurs entreprises
•une carence en analystes de sécurité qualifiés, capables d’identifier le nombre croissant de menaces pénétrant leurs organisations. Par exemple, les cryptoransomwares sont en augmentation constante (+35 % en 2015 ) et il faut encore en moyenne plus de 200 jours à une entreprise pour découvrir qu’elle victime d’une attaque.
•peu d’expertise spécialisée dans les techniques requises pour réagir à des menaces et les neutraliser une fois que celles-ci ont pénétré leur environnement IT
Les gangs de rançonneurs ne cessant d’affiner leurs tactiques, les entreprises ont besoin d’être parfaitement au courant des menaces et des risques qu’elles encourent. Symantec vous donne rendez-vous pour un webcast consacré aux attaques par ransomware. Vous y découvrirez ce qui est arrivé à une société et les mesures qu’elle a prises pour remédier à la menace.
The cyber threat landscape has never been more dynamic, than what we are seeing today. With an expanding surface area for attacks and a cybercriminal ecosystem worth billion of dollars on a global scale, cybercriminals are constantly pursuing new methods to obtain financial funds.
It is no different in the Nordics – a region that is well known for its natural resources, innovations in renewable energy and healthcare, proximity to the Arctic, and emphasis on transparency in government is also a prime target for cybercriminals. These unique attributes make the region a prime target for cyber threat groups looking to capitalize on Nordic countries’ robust economies and distinct geopolitical concerns.
Join Jens Monrad, Senior Intelligence Account Analyst at FireEye, who will discuss:
* The Threat Landscape in the Nordics
* Trends and Insights in Malware detections across the Nordics
* Geopolitical situations which can influence the threat landscape in the Nordics
* How having accurate and enriched threat intelligence can enable organisations to make tactical, operation and strategic decisions.
Register today and learn what tools, processes and information organisations need in order to allow them to fully reconstruct the attack scenario and help make the right decisions based on the attack, as well as prepare for the next one.
El año pasado, el ransomware alcanzó un nivel de peligrosidad y profesionalidad nunca visto hasta ahora: ¿cómo puede estar seguro de que su infraestructura informática está protegida y de que está preparado para gestionar un ataque?
En la actualidad, los líderes de los equipos de seguridad se enfrentan a los siguientes desafíos:
•Una falta de inteligencia procesable sobre amenazas para mejorar su comprensión sobre los ciberdelincuentes y campañas que podrían tener como objetivo a su empresa.
•Muy pocos analistas de seguridad cualificados que puedan identificar el creciente número de amenazas que se infiltran en su organización. Por ejemplo, el uso del ransomware de cifrado como herramienta de ataque por parte de los ciberdelincuentes continuó aumentando en 2015, con un crecimiento del 35 %. Sin embargo, las empresas que sufren un ataque siguen tardando más de 200 días en conocerlo.
•Pocos conocimientos especializados en las técnicas necesarias para responder a las amenazas y repararlas una vez han invadido su entorno informático.
Los grupos de cibercriminales especializados en ransomware continúan evolucionando sus tácticas, por lo que las organizaciones deben ser plenamente conscientes de las amenazas que estos representan. Únase a Symantec en un webinar que se centrará en un ataque de ransomware para conocer más detalles sobre el incidente y sobre las medidas que tomó la empresa para reparar la amenaza.
Lo scorso anno il ransomware ha raggiunto un nuovo livello di evoluzione e pericolosità: come essere certi che l'infrastruttura IT sia protetta e in grado di affrontare un attacco?
Oggi i leader della sicurezza hanno importanti sfide da risolvere:
•Un’intelligence sulle minacce insufficiente a individuare gli aggressori e le campagne che potrebbero attaccare la loro azienda.
•La penuria di analisti di sicurezza competenti in grado di identificare il numero crescente di minacce che penetrano all’interno delle aziende. Nel 2015, ad esempio, l’uso del crypto-ransomware come strumento di aggressione è aumentato del 35%, ma le aziende aggredite impiegano ancora più di 200 giorni per accorgersi del problema.
•Scarsa conoscenza specializzata delle tecniche di incident response e remediation per gli ambienti IT colpiti.
Gli autori dei ransomware continuano ad affinare le proprie tattiche, e le aziende devono imparare a conoscere bene le nuove minacce. Partecipa al webinar Symantec che descrive un attacco di ransomware, le sue conseguenze e la strategia di remediation adottata dall’azienda colpita.
