Leveraging Next-Gen SIEM For Security Intelligence: A Buyer’s Perspective
Chartered with securing both the PII of over 250,000 physicians and a vast amount of highly valued intellectual property amidst a rapidly evolving threat landscape, Paul Lynch, Director of Data Security and Networks at the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), recognized the need to move beyond a traditional SIEM, and employ a more holistic approach to Security Intelligence.
In this CISO Executive Network webinar, Mr. Lynch will share with you the path he took to go from defining ABIM’s core security intelligence requirements to making his ultimate selection. The path included establishing a detailed score card for evaluating various SIEM solutions, moving from eight vendors’ to a short list of four, then testing and ultimately selecting a unified platform for ABIM.
Whether you have an existing SIEM platform and are overwhelmed by its complexity, inadequate visibility to today’s advance threats or the manpower required to manage it, or you’re considering deploying SIEM for the first time, you’ll benefit greatly by joining us for this webinar.
Key themes to be covered include:
• SIEM for Security vs. IT Operations – understanding and prioritizing your options
• Establishing a score card to evaluate vendors and solutions
• How to leveraging market research and outside perspectives to inform your decision

When attackers compromise the perimeter or are operating from within, you need to know. You can only stop attackers from gaining a foothold in your network to expand their presence if you can see them. The indicators of a breach are often first observed within the network itself, therefore network monitoring and forensics plays an essential role in helping to detect, respond, and naturalize attacks.
In this webcast, Rob McGovern senior technical product manager at LogRhythm, will discuss how to quickly identify emerging threats in your IT environment using network monitoring and forensic tools.
•What Network Monitor is and the important role it plays in your security operations strategy
•Real-life use cases that highlight the power of Network Monitor
•How Network Monitor works with SIEM to reduce the mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and mean-time-to-respond (MTTR) to cyber attacks

Most modern malware operates as part of a system. Whether it’s a multi-part kill chain with droppers and payloads, a botnet with command and control servers, or ransomware encrypting files, the malware on the compromised system talks to other systems over the internet.
If you have been compromised, and didn’t catch malware on the way in, you can often find it by monitoring outbound network connections.
In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith, Windows Security Subject Matter Expert, and Rob McGovern, Sr. Technical Product Manager at LogRhythm, discuss the top 8 things to analyze in outbound connections from your network to the Internet.
The duo also shows you how Network Monitor tools can help you improve your network analysis and forensics capabilities.

Michael Suby, Vice President of Research at Frost & Sullivan
Unfortunately many organizations today are losing the race against the hacker community by a large margin. As noted in the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, the percent of compromises that transpired in “days or less” has risen from 67% to 84% over the last 10 years. Over this same time period, the percent of compromise discoveries that occurred in “days or less” also improved, but not enough to narrow the time gap between compromise and discovery. In other words, the bad guys are accelerating their exploits faster than the good guys are accelerating their ability to discover.
The path to narrowing the time gap between compromise and discovery, and then neutralizing business-impacting incidents, is through a comprehensive and mission-oriented Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). A well-designed SIEM not only advances security objectives, but it also works to direct personnel and process for maximum impact. With limited resources and a rising number of attacks, not all solutions are created equal. You need to ensure they are getting the best bang for your buck.
In this webinar, Michael Suby, vice president of research at the global research and consulting organization Frost & Sullivan, will discuss the factors that contribute to SIEM’s total cost of ownership.
• How to calculate the total cost of ownership of a SIEM
• The basic functionality that every SIEM should have to confidently breeze through preliminary activities
• The SIEM attributes that will have a lasting impact on your organization’s cost efficiency in effectively managing risk
Join us to learn the features that should be on the top of your scorecard when evaluating a SIEM for either first-time deployment or replacement.

It's 2:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, and you get that fateful call. An employee's laptop was hit by the latest CryptoWall variant. The employee was merely searching for how to solve a computer problem, but within minutes of clicking a link, his files have been encrypted and he must pay a ransom fee to get them back.
Unfortunately, his laptop wasn't the only thing affected. The file shares that he was connected to were also encrypted beyond reach. Other calls start coming in. Files in various department shares are "corrupted" and things are grinding to a halt. Another ruined weekend for the SOC and IT--and likely another payday for the bad guys.
Defending Your Organization Against Ransomware
In this webinar, LogRhythm will look at the business problems surrounding the new and evolved ransomware threat. The webinar will also give you a brief technical overview of how these schemes function and how they can be spotted and responded to early enough in the threat lifecycle to severely limit the potential damage. You'll also be given a framework that you can work through to better protect your organization in the face of this looming menace.
Webinar topics include:
• The early indicators of ransomware
• Automated defenses that you can put in place to thwart the attack
• The steps that must be followed (with robotic precision) to make a mole hill out of the potential mountain.

PowerShell is like nuclear fission—it’s powerful, and it can be used for good and evil. The bad guys love to exploit PowerShell for at least three reasons:
1. It’s already installed on most versions of Windows.
2. It’s powerful. You really can do just about anything in PowerShell—even call into the Win32 API if enabled.
3.There are no EXEs or DLLs to upload.
Lee Holmes (Microsoft’s PowerShell extraordinaire) will be joining me to show you how to catch intruders exploiting PowerShell to their own ends.
First, we will provide a brief overview of PowerShell security capabilities especially enhancements in PowerShell 5.0t. There are some really good preventive steps you can take to limit your exposure to PowerShell-related risks. And PowerShell 5.0 is available on Windows 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows 7 SP1 and up, so this isn’t vaporware.
Then we will zero in on the auditing capabilities in PowerShell. We’ll show you how to enable PowerShell logging so that you get events for every script block executed. We’ll show you sample events and discuss how to interpret them, how to filter the noise and more.
I’ll also briefly point out some less powerful, but easy-to-implement techniques for just detecting the use of PowerShell itself using Process Tracking events. This can be useful for highly controlled endpoints where use of PowerShell at all is very limited and easy to recognize if PowerShell is being used in an unusual way.
Of course producing valuable audit data is one thing. Collecting, analyzing and alerting on it is another. And that’s where our sponsor, LogRhythm, comes in. The security experts at LogRhythm have been following the increased exploitation of PowerShell by the bad guys and been publishing their own tips on how to combat. Greg Foss will briefly demonstrate LogRhythm’s built-in knowledge of PowerShell and its ability to correlate PowerShell events with all the other security intelligence LogRhythm collects from your enterprise.

AppLocker is Window’s built-in application whitelisting technology. Despite AppLocker requiring a lot of planning, research and commitment to ongoing care and feeding, in audit mode the application has unlocked potential. Audit mode, provides a really cool way to know immediately when anything new runs on your network without collecting a tremendous amount of events from every endpoint.
In this webinar we’re going on a deep dive of how to implement AppLocker in audit mode and then monitor those events so that you know as soon as something new shows up on your endpoint. Also, Erick Ingleby will briefly show you how LogRhythm can even take automatic remediation measures on endpoints when unauthorized software is detected – including the immediate collection of additional evidence so that it will be ready for the security analyst to investigate.
