      Researcher profiles and metrics that matter Chris Belter, NIH Library; Ellen Cole, Northumbria University; Andrea Michalek, Plum Analytics Recorded: Jun 8 2017 3:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • Today’s researchers are obliged to include a variety of metrics in their applications for grant funding, and promotion and tenure files. They also develop online profiles to enhance their reputation and attract collaborators. Whether welcome or worrisome, researcher profiles and metrics have become commonplace. So how can librarians help?

      It begins with a conversation. Discover how to put researchers at ease with the notion of metrics, and what metrics can and cannot convey. Find out more about how to select the best metrics for different disciplines and at different stages of the research career. And learn how institutional initiatives, such as instituting the ORCID researcher iD and providing early education, can provide them with lifelong benefits. By helping to clarify and codify certain processes, you will ensure your researchers are their own best advocates.

    • In-Depth Analysis of a Fast Flux Botnet
      In-Depth Analysis of a Fast Flux Botnet Or Katz, Principal Lead Security Researcher, Akamai Recorded: Nov 22 2017 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    • In recent years, we have seen large-scale botnets used to execute attacks rarely seen in the past -- botnets that incorporate new features and bigger capabilities than ever before. How and why some of these botnets remain resilient is a question that needs to be answered, and one of the reasons is Fast Flux. Fast Flux is a DNS technique used by botnets to hide various types of malicious activities (such as phishing, web proxying, malware delivery, and malware communication) behind an ever-changing network of compromised hosts acting as proxies. In general, a Fast Flux network is mostly used to make communication between malware and its command and control server (C&C) more resistant to discovery. Akamai’s high visibility to both Web and Enterprise traffic enables new and unique insights on the behavior of such Fast Flux networks.

      In this webinar, you will get an in-depth analysis on:

      - How network fluxing is using domains, IP addresses and even nameservers to become resistant to discovery
      - How Fast Flux networks offer services such as malware communication and hosting of malicious content
      - How botnets are used both for Fast Flux communications and a variety of Web attacks such as Web scraping and credential abuse
      - Best practices for detecting and defending against such botnets

      Join Akamai and (ISC)² on Nov 22 (Wed) at 13:00 (Singapore time) / 16:00 (Sydney time) to learn more about the Fast Flux Botnet.

      Presenter: Or Katz, Principal Lead Security Researcher, Akamai

    • Why Proactive Recruiting is Key to Filling Your High Priority Roles
      Why Proactive Recruiting is Key to Filling Your High Priority Roles Jess Verbruggen, Recruiting Researcher at Shopify Recorded: Oct 10 2017 7:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • It’s easy to preach the value of sourcing, but it’s difficult to prioritize regularly. Why spend hours reaching out to passive candidates - who may never reply - when you can just respond to candidates who are actively looking?

      Because proactive sourcing is key to filling your high-priority, hard-to-fill roles. Since Shopify zeroed in on proactive outreach three years ago, their growth has been explosive. They’ve skyrocketed from 550 to over 2,000 employees and made 387 hires through proactive sourcing, including 110 hard-to-fill roles.

      What’s more? They've doubled their candidate response rate to cold outreach from 21 to 42 percent since rolling out Lever Nurture.

      Want to know the secrets behind their unprecedented success? On October 10th, Recruiting Researcher Jess Verbruggen will share the outreach tactics that actually pique the interest of candidates, and ultimately lead to monumental growth.

      Join us to learn:
      - Why Shopify knew they had to prioritize proactive sourcing in the first place
      - How they advocated to build a team of recruiting researchers who specialize in sourcing
      - Concrete steps to increase your response rate to cold outreach
      - The direct link between sourcing and massively scaling your team

    • How Hackers Exploit Your Windows Tools, Part 2: The WMI Threat
      How Hackers Exploit Your Windows Tools, Part 2: The WMI Threat Lee Lawson, Special Operations Researcher, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Recorded: Sep 13 2017 1:00 pm UTC 51 mins
    • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a Microsoft Windows administrative tool that has access to all system resources, making it powerful for both legitimate and illegitimate use. Via WMI you can do things like execute, delete and copy files; change registry values; and identify which security products are installed to aid in bypassing them.

      The malicious use of WMI and other legitimate tools continues to grow and was identified as a top trend in a recent SecureWorks Threat Intelligence Executive Report. Like PowerShell, WMI is often used to create file-less attacks that are difficult to identify and stop with technology alone. This makes WMI the perfect tool for threat actors to use as camouflage while acting inside your organisation.

      Join Counter Threat Unit - Special Operations Researcher, Lee Lawson, for the second webcast in our two-part series on how threat actors are exploiting Windows tools in “living off the land” attacks.

      You will learn:

      - Why WMI is so risky
      - Tips to identify malicious use of WMI
      - How threat actors hide their tracks and how you can unmask them
      - WMI threats identified by SecureWorks researchers
      - How you can avoid becoming a victim to this growing threat vector

    • Anatomy of the attacks: WannaCry ransomware & Google OAuth phishing
      Anatomy of the attacks: WannaCry ransomware & Google OAuth phishing Alex Chiu, threat researcher for Cisco Talos, and Brad Antoniewicz, security researcher for Cisco Umbrella Recorded: Jun 12 2017 4:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • On May 3rd, over a million Gmail users granted a fake, but convincing, application full access to their emails and contacts. Two weeks later, a major ransomware attack spread rapidly and affected a multitude of organizations across the world. Needless to say, it’s been a busy month in the infosec world.

      Now that the dust has started to settle, join our security researchers Alex Chiu, threat researcher for Cisco Talos, and Brad Antoniewicz, security researcher for Cisco Umbrella, as they take you through the details of the recent attacks.

      In the session, our researchers will share:

      - Key findings from their research

      - Details uncovered about the attackers’ infrastructure, including analysis of the malware, domains, and IPs used in the attack

      - How Cisco identified and blocked the attacks, including a timeline of events

      - Steps you can take to protect your organization

      We’ll also look ahead at how these types of attacks could potentially evolve over time and how you can better prepare.

    • How Hackers Exploit Your Windows Tools, Part 1: The PowerShell Risk
      How Hackers Exploit Your Windows Tools, Part 1: The PowerShell Risk Lee Lawson, Special Operations Researcher, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Recorded: Aug 24 2017 1:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • In a recent SecureWorks engagement, 98.5% of the 3,477 commands executed by threat actors were native to the Windows operating system.

      PowerShell is a popular tool that Microsoft has been including with the Windows OS since 2009, but malicious PowerShell use is rivalling ransomware in popularity with threat actors. Security products focused on preventing endpoint threats are often not enough to differentiate legitimate from malicious PowerShell use.

      In the first webcast of a two-part series on how threat actors are exploiting Windows tools in “living off the land” attacks, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit - Special Operations Researcher, Lee Lawson, will discuss why PowerShell is so risky, how SecureWorks researchers identify PowerShell threats, and how you can defend your organisation.

      You Will Learn:

      - What PowerShell is and how it is used in “living off the land” attacks
      - Why built-in tools like PowerShell are so attractive to threat actors
      - Examples of malicious PowerShell use
      - How to defend your organisation against common methods threat actors use to evade prevention and detection

    • NoTrove: A Deep Dive into a Scam Empire
      NoTrove: A Deep Dive into a Scam Empire Ian Cowger, Threat Researcher, RiskIQ Recorded: Aug 24 2017 2:15 pm UTC 37 mins
    • Earlier this year, RiskIQ reported an eightfold increase in internet scam incidents, which deny the $83 billion digital advertising industry millions of dollars. Since then, we’ve identified a particularly prolific threat actor that’s built out wide swaths of infrastructure to deliver millions of scam ads, threatening consumers and undermining the digital advertising industry.

      Based on the RiskIQ report released in April, NoTrove: The Threat Actor Ruling a Scam Empire, report author and RiskIQ Threat Researcher Ian Cowger and Technical Marketing Manager Benjamin Powell will walk you through how “NoTrove,” a scam actor named after its URI pattern and penchant for denying victims “troves” of rewards, uses its scam empire and advanced automation techniques to stay ahead of detection and takedown efforts.

      Watch the Threatcast™ for a deep dive on:

      How scams are becoming a lucrative and increasingly popular method for threat actors and why they’re bad news for the digital advertising ecosystem
      What the different variants of NoTrove campaigns look like—software downloads, PUP redirections, and fake rewards downloads—and what the redirection sequence looks like when victims click and are redirected to unwanted places across the internet
      How NoTrove domains are able to command so much traffic, many shoot well up into the Alexa top 10,000
      How RiskIQ’s unique machine learning technology is able to detect scams, even as threat actor tactics evolve, to enable ad networks and publishers to block NoTrove infrastructure, even as it changes, evolves, and rotates
