2016 Q2 Malware Review: Ransomware Maturity and Evasion Techniques

During the second quarter of 2016, ransomware has firmly established itself as a mature business model, showing no outward signs of diminishing. Encryption ransomware now accounts for 50% of all malware delivery configurations, meaning that it is no longer considered simply a means for making a quick profit, but a permanent fixture on the threat landscape.
This webcast will discuss how ransomware has now become a successful business and reveals findings on the use of steganography and ciphers in malware delivery. Join Brendan Griffin, Threat Intelligence Manager, PhishMe to learn about:

  • Still getting Phished? Uncovering the Fallacy of "Secure" Email Gateways. Recorded: Jun 24 2020 36 mins
    Cofense Co-Founder and CTO, Aaron Higbee & Security Solution Advisor, Tonia Dudley

  • Security Awareness and Security Operations Working Together Recorded: Mar 2 2020 32 mins
    Tonia Dudley, Security Solutions Advisor, Cofense
    It has become cliché to say that the user is the weakest link in cybersecurity. However, it is also true that the user is often the last line of defense — phishing and other potential security attacks often depend on a person clicking on a link or malware-laden file to launch an attack. While a company might have a top notch cybersecurity operations team, without having an equally trained user base the company is essentially defending itself with one hand tied behind its virtual back.

    This SC Magazine 20/20 editorial webcast looks at how CISOs can augment their professional cybersecurity team and security operations center with a highly aware user base to identify and defeat potential breaches.

  • How to Prevent Breaches with Phishing Threat Intelligence Recorded: Jul 18 2019 47 mins
    Joshua Bartolomie, Director, Research and Development and KJ Jagtap, Product Marketing Manager, Cofense
    Mottos like "If you see something, say something" speak to the power of human observation in preventing security disasters. Similarly, valuable human-generated intelligence can be effective in preventing data breaches emanating from phishing attacks. In today’s changing cyber threat landscape, humans need to be conditioned to recognize phishing attacks and security teams need to be armed with actionable threat intelligence to rapidly manage an attack once it hits.

    This is where Phishing Threat Intelligence comes into play. By extracting key IOCs from newer phishing threats and making them available to security teams, organizations can detect attacks in progress and respond quickly to reduce the effect of a breach. Plus, by incorporating the same intelligence and tactics in your awareness program, you can train your users to more quickly detect and report an active threat.

    Join this webinar to learn about:

    - The constantly changing threat landscape
    - Turning active, real threats into learning moments for your users
    - Speeding up response with timely, actionable intelligence
