  • 10 Ways to Tell If It's Time to Change Your Anti-Virus Software Recorded: Jun 6 2012 59 mins
    If you are like most small businesses you have probably experienced issues with anti-malware software in the past. Do any of the issues below ring true when thinking about your current antivirus solution?

    • When it performs scans it slows our systems to a crawl

    • It creates too many alerts on files that aren’t malicious

    • It is hard to manage across all our platforms and devices

    • Our users want to turn it off because it is so annoying

    If so, join Peter Streips, Network Security Group (ESET’s Gold Partner) President and ESET researchers for a panel discussion and learn why it’s time to change your antivirus solution.
  • Truth or Spin in AV Testing? Recorded: May 30 2012 59 mins
    Third-party tests can be extremely caluable for evaluating anti-malware products. In-fact, more tests are available than most people realize, covering not only detection rates and scanning speeds, but also factors like number of false positives and ability to block zero-day attacks. But an educated evaluator can both avoid the snares of misleading tests and find a surprising number of useful third party tests.
  • Are SMB’s targets for Cyber Criminals? Recorded: Apr 11 2012 60 mins
    The Internet is a force multiplier, allowing businesses of all sizes to reach more customers, better service those customers and ultimately be more competitive. By utilizing the Internet, many small and medium businesses can be much more successful. However technological advances cut both ways.
    While improved connectivity, communication, and Web presence provide benefits to small and medium businesses (SMBs), it can also resulted in an increase of Internet based security threats and expose the business to criminal elements that they wouldn't normally encounter. If customers can find you so can cybercriminals. The most damaging cyber attack against small and medium businesses is when cybercriminals implant malware on a company's computers, and use that malware to gain access to the company's bank accounts via online-banking.
    This webcast is designed to bring the growing cyberthreats and protection strategies to the attention of executives and employees of small and medium enterprises. In this webcast, IDC's analyst, using survey data, recent threat data, and insight, will provide the following information:
    * Highlight threats and successful attacks directed towards SMBs
    * Identify the special needs for SMB cybersecurity
    * Explain companies' existing attitudes around cybersecurity
    * Discuss the key security technologies SMBs should consider
    * Highlight what features and support companies should look for from their security vendors
  • Creating and Managing a Cyber Security Policy: Tips for the SMB Recorded: Mar 21 2012 56 mins
    Join Stephen Cobb, Security Evangelist at ESET to discover how:
    - Vunerable SMB's like yours really are
    - You can establish a cyber security policy for your organization
    - You can defend your company-and it's employees partners and customers against online attacks
    Many small and medium-size businesses (SMB) operate under the mistaken impression that their size, or the minimal security steps that they have already taken, will protect them from cyber attacks.
  • Security at the Sharp End: Strategies to Repel Relentless Attackers Recorded: Feb 8 2012 60 mins
    Targeting of corporate and consumer data and devices by criminals and rogue states is well-funded and likely to persist for some time. Hardened operating systems, firewalls, IDS, and secure application coding are leading attackers to target endpoints, defined as people with devices, not devices alone. Analyzing large amounts of endpoint data we map current and emerging threats, both digital and analog, to provide a set of best practices for defeating attackers.
  • IT's Role in a Changing Threat Landscape Recorded: Jan 18 2012 62 mins
    How can IT security adapt to fight constantly mutating cyber threats?

    As the adversarial relationship between information security professionals and malicious cyberactors intensifies, the security gap between new attack methods and traditional controls will grow in favor of the attackers.

    Cyberattacks have become multidimensional in their complexity and sophistication.

    Join Forrester Analyst, Chenxi Wang, Ph.D. to:
    - Look at the new threats that corporate IT will face in 2012
    - Discuss the role of IT in the face of such threats
    - Review effective investment and risk management strategies to get ahead of the cyberattacks
    - Explore strategies to invest in preventative technologies, not just on reactive controls

    More specifically, we will dive into strategies to build a solid layered defense, not just patch-work products. For example, going from firewalls and IDS to log management, building DLP capabilities in your network, and investing in strong host-based controls would help you raise the bar significantly and give you advanced capabilities to identify malicious behaviors before they wreak havoc.

    Panel Discussion Points with Forrester and ESET's Research team:
    - What sort of new threats (or increase of existing threats) can be expected in 2012?
    - What role does the commoditization of IT have, if any, in those threats?
    - What role does the social media have, if any, in those threats?
    - What can IT departments do to reduce their threat surface profile?

    Followed by Q&A session
  • Surviving the Mobile Device Invasion – When Mobile Tries to Connect to IT Recorded: Dec 7 2011 50 mins
    With the deluge of new mobile smartphones like Android, iPhone, and others hitting the streets, there are thousands of new attack vectors against a company's IT infrastructure that create potential security nightmares. When users download apps by the droves and then want to connect to core critical infrastructure, how should IT handle it? While there is a drive for increased off-hours and/or offsite productivity using mobiles, can we stomach the changes that are coming, and can our organizations remain (or become) secure?
  • Antivirus Software: Understand the Detection Methods Before You Buy Recorded: Nov 15 2011 56 mins
    Before you choose an antivirus solution it is important to understand how it goes about detecting malware in the first place.

    Join us as we discuss:
    - Security in the news
    - Modern threat categories and attack vectors
    - Endpoint risks, infection methods, payloads
    - Detection with signatures and heuristics
    - Zero day risk

  • Step 3 - The Impact of SMB Security on Our Nation's Critical Infrastructure (CI) Recorded: Oct 26 2011 48 mins
    SMB Cybersecurity Challenge - Webcast Series Part 4


    Join a blue-ribbon panel of experts from government and business to learn:
    - How U.S. agencies are collaborating with business to solve the SMB security threats
    - Recommendations and solutions to keep your SMB organizations safe from cyber crime attack
    - How your business can create and implement an employee cybersecurity awareness program itself

    In a recent speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Secretary Janet Napolitano asked the question, “How do we secure our nation's critical infrastructure when the vast majority of it is in private hands?” It’s precisely why DHS is partnering with agencies such as the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and with private-sector companies in key areas such as finance, energy, transportation and others. But the real challenge will be to help our small and midsize businesses improve security, which often lack the resources and experience to protect themselves against today's slick, savvy cybercriminals.
  • Step 2 - Securing Your Network:Safeguarding Business Data-at Work & at Home Recorded: Oct 19 2011 56 mins
    SMB Cybersecurity Challenge - Webcast Series Part 3

    Join FBI Supervising Special Agent, Mark Culp, and Author Glenn Jacobs, as they provide your business:

    >> Tips and best practices to prevent an attack from occurring
    >> Important steps to take when a cyber break-in has been discovered
    >> How to bring perpetrators to justice and recoup your losses

    When it comes to being a victim of cybercrime, size does matter: “The sting of a cybercrime is not felt equally across the board. A small company may NOT be able to survive even one significant cyberattack.” This chilling testimony to the extreme vulnerability of small and midsize businesses was delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism this spring by the FBI’s Cyber Division Assistant Director Gordon M. Snow.
    The implications to your business are clear. The question is, what can you do about it?

    NOTE: The first 50 live attendees will receive a free PDF copy of speaker Glenn Jacobs new book, Is Your Computer Bugged – Protecting Your Computer from Cyber Attack.
  • Step 1 - Creating and Managing a Cybersecurity Policy: Tips for the SMB Recorded: Oct 12 2011 57 mins
    SMB Cybersecurity Challenge - Webcast Series Part 2

    Join Stephen Cobb, Security Evangelist at ESET to discover how:
    - Vulnerable SMBs like yours really are
    - You can establish a cybersecurity policy for your organization
    - You can to defend your company – and its employees, partners and customers – against online attacks.

    Many small and medium-size businesses (SMB) operate under the mistaken impression that their size, or the minimal security steps that they have already taken, will protect them from cyberattacks. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s publication, Commonsense Guide to Cyber Security for Small Businesses, “This assumption is both inaccurate and dangerous. Attacks on information systems operated by small and midsize companies are growing rapidly and are having a severe impact on business operations… Neither the size of your company nor the type of your business guarantees protection from an attack. If you use the Internet, you are vulnerable.”

  • How to Ensure Real-Time Threat Detection Recorded: Sep 14 2011 59 mins
    As part of the Threat Management Summit ESET along with Frost & Sullivan will discuss Real-time Threat Detection.

    Frost & Sullivan: Making the Case for Endpoint Security

    The headline grabbing attacks against firms like RSA, Epsilon, Lockheed Martin, and others have brought a great deal of attention to data protection and tools to protect the data itself. As many organizations look at moving data and services to the cloud, organizations are focusing their energies on securing cloud based services. Unfortunately, focus on the endpoint seems to be waning, leaving a large hole in many organization's defense.

    Rob Ayoub, CISSP and Research Director for Frost & Sullivan's Information Security Practice will discuss why protecting the endpoint is still critical in today's changing threat landscape. The endpoint is still the last connection to the end user and without adequate protections against the latest threats, corporate data is still at risk, even with safeguards in place.

    ESET: The Best Defense is a Good Offense

    With the pace of emerging threats, it’s not good enough to know about the last attack to hit your company, you have to be prepared for the next, with always-on, self-learning, adaptive technology leading your security stance.

  • Key Considerations for Selecting Endpoint Security Solutions Recorded: May 24 2011 60 mins
    Not long ago there were those who were complaining that there was a monoculture in computing. Too many people were using Windows operating systems and that was a primary facilitator for Windows based attacks.

    Over the past few years things have been changing. Endpoints now, are likely to be mobile devices using various operating systems, to reside on a server in the cloud by way of desktop virtualization, or to be a non-Windows machine running Apple or Linux.

    To address this new environment, organizations need to look for specific capabilities when selecting their endpoint security solution. These include:

    • The ability to have one product that can be used to protect a wide range of devices (Windows, MAC, Linux), work in virtualized environments, and deal with removable media
    • Centralized management with remote administration that verifies protection, is used for compliance reporting, and saves IT resources.
    • High level of performance. This includes a small footprint and fast scanning so as to not negatively impact on machine performance, while at the same time maintaining a high level of protection.
