APTs: Getting Serious About Zero-Day Threats

Manage webcast
Alex Lanstein, Senior Researcher, FireEye
Cyber security remains the #1 priority for IT security executives and practitioners in 2012 for good reason. With cyber-attacks on federal government systems and civilian networks increasing at an alarming rate, the threat posed is only heightened by vulnerabilities in networks that support critical operations and infrastructure. In fact, on a weekly basis, over 95% of organizations have at least 10 malicious infections bypass existing security to penetrate their networks.
In a recent congressional hearing, a former FBI cyber security specialist stated: "I believe most major companies have already been breached or will be breached, resulting in substantial losses in information, economic competitiveness and national security. Many are breached and have absolutely no knowledge that an adversary was or remains resident on their network, often times for weeks, months or even years."
Organizations need real time, dynamic protection from today’s most dangerous threats designed to bypass traditional security defenses. Attend this webcast to learn:
•The new techniques and tactics that make these next-generation attacks successful in the absence of a true defense-in-depth security architecture
•Why conventional security defenses are no match for today’s sophisticated and coordinated attacks
•How to detect and stop Web and email-based attacks that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities—when they first appear on your network
•Key criteria when investigating next-generation threat protection

  • 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.
