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.
- Clearing up misconceptions about bibliometric indicators
- Metrics as a means to counterbalance other biases
- Telling researchers’ stories through metrics
- Metrics for different disciplines and career stages
- Promoting ORCID at various points in the researchers’ career
- Touchpoints for researcher training

This webinar will leave you feeling confident about publishing your research papers with Wiley.
This webinar will explore how librarians are supporting researchers in applied and discipline-specific areas. Presenters will include three chemistry professionals, two who have gone into library sciences supporting fellow researchers and one who has pursued a distinguished research career in chemistry. They will examine whether researchers' needs vary with their involvement in applied versus basic research, and examine the impact on the librarian's skill set and tools. Other key themes include how important is it for a librarian to have an educational background in the disciplines they support, and how do they stay up-to-date in their field?Read more >

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.
Fifty-two percent of security leaders rate their organizations at above average or superior when it comes to detecting or blocking ransomware before it locks or encrypts data in their systems. Yet, 36 percent also say their organizations were victims of ransomware in the past year. And 57 percent say they are more likely to be a ransomware target in 2017.
These are among the results of the 2017 Ransomware Defense Survey. Aimed at determining the true impact of ransomware on organizations across industries, the survey uncovers some stark contrasts.
ISMG Vice President of Editorial, Tom Field and SecureWorks Senior Security Researcher, Keith Jarvis, will analyze the Ransomware Defense Survey results and will discuss how security leaders can put these findings to work in their organizations.
You Will Learn About:
• The true impact of ransomware on organizations across industries
• What works and doesn't work when it comes to detecting and remediating ransomware
• Key investments enterprises are making in 2017 to shore up their ransomware defenses
• How to prevent and detect ransomware before it takes root and cripples your operations
In our “Cybersecurity Threat Insights Report for Leaders”, we shared several key findings and observations from our client engagements and about the security industry. This webcast will cover our findings and observations but will also provide you with clear direction on where you need to focus your resources to evoke positive action in your security program.
During this webcast one of our lead Counter Threat Unit™ researchers, Chris Yule, who helped develop the report, will give his perspective, observations and guidance through responses to a series of questions led by our EMEA Marketing Manager, Andy Patton.
SecureWorks’ incident responders assist hundreds of organisations annually with the containment and remediation of threats during security incidents, including both targeted and opportunistic threats. Visibility of these incidents provides the SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team with a unique and comprehensive view of emerging threats and developing trends.
In this webcast Chris Yule, Senior Security Researcher with the CTU, will draw on recent research garnered from SecureWorks’ incident response engagements in Q1 and Q2 of 2016 to address some of the most prominent threats and security challenges organisations face today.
Chris will be viewing and presenting this insight through the lens of the victim, and will answer the following questions which many organisations will be familiar with:
- Am I likely to be a victim?
- Should I care about targeted or opportunistic threats?
- What makes me a victim of a targeted threat?
- How can I protect myself against the most common threats?

"Nigerian prince" and "419" scams have plagued victims for decades and transitioned to the Internet in the 1990s. There are many variations and names for these scams, which originated in Nigeria. The scammers refer to their trade using the terms "yahoo yahoo" or "G-work," calling themselves "yahoo-yahoo boys," "yahoo boiz," or "G-boys." However, the simple con man fraud practiced by many West African-based threat actors is being replaced by a new crime they refer to as "wire-wire," "waya-waya," or "the new G-work."
In this short 25-minute on-demand webcast, the second in the four-part SecureWorks Threat Intelligence Spotlight Series, Lee Lawson, Senior Researcher with the SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU), explains how the low-level con games these threat actors are typically known for have evolved into more sophisticated and conventional cybercrime that is compromising businesses around the world.
