Cryptocurrency is making it easier for hackers to get paid while protecting their anonymity. Malicious cryptomining is on the rise - moving more mainstream, and as a result, more profitable than ever. And the market volatility of cryptocurrency makes this emerging threat more financially lucrative than ransomware.
Are you at risk? With a 19x increase in crypto related traffic in the last nine months, there’s never been a better time to find out if computing resources in your organization are being used without your knowledge.
Watch this webcast to see which industries and geographies are most at risk!

With more unmanaged devices connecting to the network and more users working from anywhere, security gaps are widening.
Defending mobile devices, cloud data and user behavior is harder than ever. You need deep visibility to expose not only what files and users are doing on their devices, but where they try to connect to the internet so you can stop malicious behavior immediately.
Watch to find out how you can strengthen your security posture and protect your users and devices, everywhere they access the internet.

What separates security pros from security liabilities? Threat intelligence.
Find out what techniques, tricks and tips Cisco researchers use to uncover and identify threats like malicious cryptomining, phishing and ransomware attacks.
Join us to learn the latest trends on top threats and best practices you can use to protect against threats in your organization. We’ll review steps you can take to improve your threat detection, prevention and remediation efforts for your organization.
Are common security pitfalls putting your network at risk? We get it. More and more users are working wherever they please — not always using the VPN. And you may not have visibility to all the apps in use across your organization. While firewalls are ok, they won’t protect users when they are off network. There’s a lot standing between you and a safe network. Your security shouldn’t be one of them. Join us for our webinar, "6 Degrees of Network Security," and learn how to avoid 6 common security pitfalls that put your users, their devices, and your data at risk.

With the holidays among us, one can’t help but to think about taking some much needed time off to spend with friends and family. However, hackers don’t really do holidays. In fact, according to the FBI, the holidays bring more intense activity from hacking groups, cyber terrorists and nation states because they know we’re more vulnerable during these times.
Watch industry expert and cybersecurity consultant, Duncan McAlynn, discusses the top attack vectors being used by malicious actors today and what we can expect in the coming year. Mr. McAlynn, a member of the FBI InfraGard, will also briefly discuss the social and economic impact these attacks can have on our nation’s citizens, organizations and economy along with 5 key things that you can do right now to help protect and defend your company.

Business today happens at the branch. But where does IT work? Typically, not at the branch. So enterprises struggle to manage nontraditional users and even more connected devices across disparate branch locations.
As direct internet access increases, the risk of exposure to critical business resources rises. At the same time, application usage via multiple clouds (Office 365, G-suite, etc.) challenges the existing network architecture.
What does this add up to? Pressure for IT staff as they struggle to reduce costs, improve security measures, and application performance. Join us to learn how to gain better performance and more security effectiveness for your branch offices.
Today, IT departments are under pressure to do more with less. With limited budgets and smaller teams, the race is on to deliver more effective security without any reduction in reliability or performance. The high cost of enterprise WAN connectivity and support, combined with the growth of cloud-based services and bandwidth-hungry streaming applications, is forcing many network admins and security professionals to search for alternative solutions. With more branch offices connecting directly to the internet, how can you quickly and easily protect users on any device, anywhere they roam?
Find out how Cisco Umbrella is making it easier than ever to provide effective cloud security with centralized visibility and control. Watch to see how you can say bye bye to backhauling and hello to better branch security.
Long gone are the days when Security Professionals could protect their actual network and not have to worry about organization, employee, student or customer information being at risk. In today's always-connected world, much happens beyond the network (especially in the cloud) and the concept of perimeter security has all but evaporated.
Wherever Users are - the office, the classroom, traveling, or working from home - organizations need to enable security so Users can easily and safely to do their jobs. Users want to be able to just "connect" and work-- oblivious to the dangers out there. Moving security "behind the scenes" means needing to be more predictive about how attacks will happen and engaging early in the attack cycle. DNS-layer security is an important component piece of an overall security strategy that aims to stop attacks before they cause irreparable harm. Watch this webcast to learn more.

Mining for cryptocurrencies is no small task; it takes a lot of CPU and GPU cycles to process the data necessary to generate the currencies. Not everyone has the technical wherewithal, financial resources and the massive amount of hardware to build their own cryptomine, so what options do they have? The answer is simple and as old as time: If you don’t have the resources, you “borrow” (steal?) from someone who does.
This webcast looks at how cryptomining works and how to determine if your computing resources are being used without your knowledge for cryptomining.
Lee Kim, JD, CISSP, CIPP/US Director, Privacy & Security HIMSS North America
The healthcare sector has been significantly impacted by ransomware in the last five years. Ransomware locks down computers, encrypts files, locks users out of their systems, and may disrupt patient care and business operations. A ransom is demanded for the safe return of the data by malicious actors. But, there is no guarantee that the data will be successfully recovered.
Lee Kim, director of privacy and security for HIMSS North America shares how the ransomware threat has evolved over time, the current ransomware threat, and information on mitigating the threat. Lee will also share her predictions on what the healthcare and public health sector can expect in the future and the emergence of cryptojacking as a future threat.
