The Rising Costs of Targeted Attacks on Financial Institutions

Jerry Archer, SVP/CSO, Sallie Mae; Phil Lin, Ed Dembowski, FireEye
Next-generation threats are aggressively targeting sensitive data, from high value M&A information to consumer PII. And, the increasing regulations around consumer and transaction data makes it more critical than ever to safeguard both the confidentiality as well as the integrity of the information.

Due to the sophistication of malware as well as the explosion in the number and types of malware variants, traditional defenses like next-generation firewalls, IPS, antivirus, and gateways have been rendered ineffective. Also, with the many 3rd parties accessing your network, like auditors, consultants, and subsidiary organizations, it is increasingly difficult to maintain a secure network.

This webcast explores the rising costs of targeted attacks and how you can protect against sophisticated malware.

  • Ingesting raw data into Hadoop is easy, but extracting business value leveraging exploration tools is not. Hadoop is a file system without a data model, data quality, or data governance, making it difficult to find, understand and govern data.

    In this webinar, Tony Baer, Principal Analyst of Ovum Research, will address the gaps and offer best practices in the end-to-end process of discovering, wrangling, and governing data in a data lake. Tony Baer will be followed by Oliver Claude who will explain how Waterline Data Inventory automates the discovery of technical, business, and compliance metadata, and provides a solution to find, understand, and govern data.

    Attend this webinar if you are:
    --A big data architect who wants to inventory all data assets at the field level automatically while providing secure self-service to business users
    --A data engineer or data scientist who wants to accelerate data prep by finding and understanding the best suited and most trusted data
    --A Chief Data Officer or data steward who wants to be able to audit data lineage, protect sensitive data, and identify compliance issues
  • Targeted malware, zero-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats are increasingly responsible for data breaches. Why? Because they work. Most security products have a hard time protecting from advanced malware. This problem is compounded because attackers can easily mass produce new malware variants. What’s an IT person to do?

    Join us to learn key techniques to stop modern malware the first time. We will discuss:
    •What tactics work
    •Where to apply them
    •How to optimize cost, staffing and security.
  • Software defined architectures are all the buzz, helping to start conversations about transforming customer data centers from cost centers into competitive advantages. But in today’s economy, no business can afford to stand still. And a business is only as agile as its IT organization allows. An agile data center and IT department can:

    •Protect the infrastructure and easily recover if faults are found or predicted
    •Control access to data while meeting compliance and regulatory requirements
    •Deliver services quickly, resiliently, and cost-effectively

    Join us on at 10am GMT on 16th April 2015 and learn how Symantec’s view of the “Agile Data Center” covers delivering the right resources in the right way to the users. Whilst bringing a broader view on how you can introduce critical solutions and new revenues around disruptive customer events.
  • For years ClearCase was the standard for enterprise SCM. If you had a large number of developers and lots of projects ClearCase was a great choice, while ClearCase MultiSite provided basic support for distributed teams. Now industry trends are converging toward a new generation of development tools and processes. Today, continuous delivery brings agile development and DevOps together, promising much shorter development cycles and higher quality.

    Learn how moving from ClearCase to Subversion can improve your development processes and significantly reduce deployment cost and complexity. You'll also learn practical ClearCase to Subversion migration techniques.

    Topics Covered:
    • Differences and similarities between Subversion and ClearCase
    • How to merge in Subversion
    • Continuous delivery using Subversion: bringing agile and DevOps together for faster delivery and higher quality
    • ClearCase vs. Subversion in a distributed development environment
    • Migrating from ClearCase to Subversion
  • Recently cyber attacks against Industrial Control Systems (ICS) used by
    utilities and other Critical Infrastructure organizations have hit the
    newlines worldwide. Stuxnet is the best known cyber attack against an
    industrial installation, but it's not the only one.

    But what if cyber attacks were not the biggest threat to industrial
    networks and systems? Although malware is still a major point of
    interest, the sword of Damocles for critical industrial networks is
    represented by system misuse performed by disgruntled employees,
    contractors and vendors, as well as unintentional mistakes,
    network and system misconfiguration; all this could lead to the
    divergence or failure of critical processes.

    In this talk we will reshape the concept of ICS cyber security and will present our vision for a comprehensive approach to cyber security for ICS.
  • Adhering to international maritime sanctions requirements can be challenging in today’s regulatory landscape.

Learn about regulatory developments -- including the latest UN Security Council communiques on "Sanctions compliance for the maritime transportation sector" -- and leverage case studies on the use of enhanced sanctions data and monitoring tools to mitigate sanctions risk.
  • As superfast connectivity becomes widely available, it will increase both data volume and velocity as well as new business opportunities. However, this dramatic leap forward will also result in new and potentially destructive activity online, which can affect an organisation’s defences both internally and within their supply chain. It has never been more important for businesses to assess and understand their critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected environment.

    During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, will discuss how businesses can update their resilience along with examining the role in securing the network boundary that investments in technology and third party provider programmes can play. This will necessarily include an assessment of cloud-based systems and the use of robust risk assessment methodologies.

    Kevin Sheu, Sr. Manager, Product Marketing, FireEye
    Well-maintained perimeter defenses are a key part of any security strategy. Organizations increasingly recognize that they must also complement their perimeter defenses with strong forensics capabilities to investigate and analyze attacks. When attacked, an enterprise needs to be able to rapidly investigate and determine the scope and impact of the incident so they can effectively contain the threat and secure their network.
    In interactive this session, you will learn about:
    • The key use cases for network forensics
    • The typical organization that acquires network forensics technologies
    • How FireEye Enterprise Forensics enables the proper response to today’s cyber attacks
  • Protecting Government Assets in an Era of Cyber Warfare Recorded: Mar 5 2015 60 mins
    Tony Cole, VP/Global Government CTO (FireEye)
    FireEye recently released a new report that documents how and why governments around the world are turning to the cyber domain as a cost-effective way to spy on other countries, steal technology, and even wage war.

    Whether it’s sensitive military, diplomatic, or economic information, governments depend on the integrity of their data. If that data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe.

    In the wake of two apparent state- and government-sponsored attacks, APT1 and APT28, government agencies must understand why they are in attackers’ crosshairs, what attackers might be seeking, and how they can protect themselves.

    Join us for a dynamic discussion with subject matter experts where you will learn:

    •What makes your government-related organization an appealing target – whether you’re a political opponent, business, agency or vendor
    •Why it’s important to determine who could be planning an attack, their motives, and how they might carry out their goals
    •How to assess your level of preparedness and how to protect yourself if you are not ready for this new era of cyber warfare
  • Behind the Syrian Conflict's Digital Front Lines Recorded: Feb 19 2015 59 mins
    Nart Villeneuve (FireEye), Daniel Regalado (FireEye), John Scott-Railton (The Citizen Lab)
    FireEye recently released a new report “Behind the Syrian Conflict’s Digital Frontlines” that documents a well-executed hacking operation that successfully breached the Syrian opposition.

    Between at least November 2013 and January 2014, the hackers stole a cache of critical documents and Skype conversations revealing the Syrian opposition’s strategy, tactical battle plans, supply needs, and troves of personal information and chat sessions. This data belonged to the men fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces as well as media activists, humanitarian aid workers, and others within the opposition located in Syria, the region and beyond.

    We have only limited indications about the origins of this threat activity. Our research revealed multiple references to Lebanon both in the course of examining the malware and in the avatar’s social media use. While we do not know who conducted this hacking operation, if this data was acquired by Assad’s forces or their allies it could confer a distinct battlefield advantage.

    Join us for a roundtable discussion with subject matter experts where we’ll talk about the details of the report and explore surrounding topics, to include:

    • An overview of the conflict in Syria and why cyber-espionage is an increasingly important factor
    • An in-depth analysis of a critical breach of the Syrian opposition including an overview of the tools and techniques used by the threat actors

    All webinar attendees will receive a free copy of the new Syrian report. Register today!

  • A New Approach to IPS – Reduce Your Exposure and Costs Recorded: Sep 4 2014 35 mins
    Rajiv Raghunarayan (FireEye), Srinivas Loke (FireEye)
    Current IPS products are deficient for lots of reasons—they’re signature-based, unable to detect modern threats, and, they create excessive alerts that require additional resources to manage. Using an outdated protection model results in distracting false positives and a lack of actionable threat intelligence. Organizations need a holistic view of multi-vector attacks that goes well beyond what conventional IPS tools offer.

    In just 30 minutes, you’ll learn how to:

    * Confirm attacks via timely and validated threat notifications
    * Minimize time and resource investments resulting from false alerts
    * Consolidate known and unknown threats on a single platform
    * Create actionable insights by correlating threats to derive richer intelligence and speed incident response times

    Join FireEye for this brief webinar and discover a new approach to IPS. You’ll quickly realize how you can save your organization time, money, and reduce your exposure to the threats lurking out there.

  • Cybersecurity’s Maginot Line: A Real-World Assessment of Defense-in-Depth Recorded: Jun 25 2014 60 mins
    Dave Merkel, CTO, FireEye, Inc.
    Are you building another Maginot Line? France’s famed border defense was hailed as a military marvel in the run-up to World War II — and quickly rendered useless by new blitzkrieg-style warfare. In much the same way, many common cybersecurity tools are not stopping today’s attacks.
    In a first-of-its-kind study, we analyzed data from 1,216 organizations in 63 countries across more than 20 industries. FireEye sits behind other layers in the typical defense-in-depth architecture. That placement offers a unique vantage point to observe them in action.

    Here’s what we found:
    •97% of organizations were breached, even with multiple security layers.
    •More than one-fourth of all organizations experienced events consistent with advance persistent threat (APT) attacks.
    •Three fourths of organizations had active command-and-control communications.
    •Even after an organization was breached, attackers attempted to compromise the typical organization more than once per week (1.6 times) on average.

    Join us in a live briefing to discuss these findings and what they mean for your cyber defense plan.
The leading provider of next generation threat protection
FireEye is the world leader in combating advanced malware, zero-day and targeted attacks that bypass traditional defenses, such as firewalls, IPS and antivirus.
