How the US Secret Service combats advanced ransomware
Following on from our popular webinar, "Petya, notPetya or Goldeneye - The Lies, the Truth and What's Coming Next", we bring to you our next special episode with US Secret Service Special Agent Mark Grantz.
If you think criminals are bored of Ransomware, think again! The ransomware market is anything but boring. Criminals are continuing to flock to ransomware as the barriers to entry, RaaS or ransomware-as-a-service, make it easy for anyone to try their luck at digital extortion. The authors behind Cerber — currently the most prominent ransomware family — release updated variants every 8.4 days on average!
Join Amar Singh, global CISO and CEO of Cyber Management Alliance and US Secret Service Special Agent Mark Grantz as they
•Dig deep into the inner workings of advanced cyber criminal gangs
•Share how law enforcement agents, like Mark Grantz, keep pace and take down these criminal outfits and police cyberspace.
•Share best practice tips and strategies on securing your organisation.
Joining Mark and Amar are Ronny Wolf from GFI, Brian Laing from Lastline and cyber and data privacy expert Chris Payne from Advanced Cyber Solutions.

search for morrisons data leak court case for more information.
Morrison's, the fifth largest super market in UK, will go down in history for all the wrong reasons. The inability to not just prevent but detect a massive data leak has meant that its brand name is being dragged through the mud and dirt, not once, but many times over. Yes Morison's could have done many things and this webinar is NOT about beating up the brand or pointing a finger.
Experts in this webinar will discuss a better, simpler approach that may reduce or at least make these kind of incidents very difficult to materialise. Join Amar Singh, Barnaby Davies and (name of at least one more expert) on the 5th December as they take a positive and proactive approach to preventing brand-damaging data breaches.
Background: The Court of Appeal (October 2018) upheld a decision of the High Court holding Morrisons vicariously liable for data breaches caused by the actions of its employee, even though the employee’s actions were specifically intended to harm Morrisons.
File storage & sharing should not just be about the size but also privacy and most importantly about maximum security.
* Is your data protected by default?
* Who has access to your data?
* Who can index your data?
* Where is your data stored?
These and many more questions will ensure you select the right type of service that offers NOT only you but your clients the assurance that you take privacy and security seriously - especially when it comes to the cloud.
Join Amar Singh as he discusses the following with Istvan Lam, the founder and CEO of Tresorit:
- How to design an intercept-proof file sync & sharing service?
- What does End-To-End encryption service actually mean?
- How to combine on premise equivalent security with consumer grade simplicity?
- Where is your data actually stored and what would happen in case of a breach of those cloud servers?
- What does ZERO-Knowledge mean in the real world?
Following on from our successful webinar, Breaking PCI-DSS Applications, we bring you our next instalment - How to Create a Complex DDoS attack in 5 steps. Join Amar Singh, Karsten Dessler as they dive into

- The different tools that can be used to launch such an attack.
Needless to say, we will share mitigating strategies and the technology configurations that you should use to protect your web products.
Are you open minded to saving money and ensuring that your business is better protected from cyber criminals at the same time? Join Amar Singh and Steve Vickers as they discuss a simple checklist for charities and small businesses. A non-technical discussion, we layout step by step guidance on what you can do:
- To save money on your current IT and security investments
- To ensure your third party is delivering the right level of security and service

** Warning - This webinar is only for informational purposes. We do not condone or encourage any malicious activity. The knowledge you gain from this webinar should be used to protect your own infrastructure and web applications. **
PCI-DSS needs no introduction. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard applies to any organisation accepting credit card details in some way or the other. This webinar is going to share some of the latest techniques cyber criminals are using to break web applications.
Join us to learn how they are doing this and what you should do to protect your organisation and compliance status.
With the explosion of cloud-based cloud ready applications, many organisations struggle with optimising application performance for cloud or hybrid environments. The culprit, in many cases, is the connectivity from the offices to the cloud. The wide area network, (WAN) connecting offices to the Internet and to other offices, is still playing catchup. WAN technology is stuck in the old-age.
Think about this: Does your business, small or large, have two or more broadband connections, maybe a broadband and a dial up or some other form of Internet connectivity? Apart from the security risk of having too many Internet points of exit, your business is also wasting money and resources in managing these various connectivity channels.
In this webinar, Amar Singh and Steve Vickers explore the problems typically faced by organisations based on the latest research and show how organisations can create a seamless and secure SD-WAN infrastructure without having to manage multiple products.
Amar Singh, CEO and co-founder of Cyber Management Alliance, recently had the pleasure to sit down with Ashish Khanna, information security officer at Dubai Health Authority, to briefly talk about what led Khanna to Dubai and to discuss some of the life lessons he learned along the way.
We do two things in this webinar - review how the UK-GCHQ Certified Training course, Cyber Incident Planning & Response or CIPR has helped organisations like the NHS and BMJ and discuss how you too can create actionable playbooks.
This webinar will cover topics such as:
- CIPR review - how it has helped organisations
- How to create actionable incident response playbooks,
- The flow and logic behind creating playbooks that work.
- Example playbooks around GDPR and Malware
We also discuss management playbooks along with technical content and share insights into how you can automate your playbooks.
This playbook webinar is taken from our certified Cyber Incident Planning & Response (CIPR) workshop and we will have several past attendees sharing their experience about the workshop and how they implemented the lessons from this training.

Amar Singh, CEO and co-founder of Cyber Management Alliance, had the pleasure of interviewing Sanjay Khanna, CIO at Rakbank in Dubai, as part of their informative Interview with Cyber Leaders series. Amar talked to Sanjay about a variety of topics, asking key questions about interview criteria, why it’s important to be prepared to take risks and step outside your comfort zone, and what excites him about the next 5 years.
“If you are not hardening your systems you deserve to be breached” Amar Singh.
It’s a chore but operating systems have to be hardened, secured and configured correctly to ensure they are not the “lowest hanging fruit” in the organisation. Furthermore, you can’t just harden your system once, you must continuously monitor and baseline it against common standards. The CIS or Centre for Internet Security is a leading non-profit organisation that provides a wide array of baseline guides for securing various systems.
Join Amar Singh, Chris Payne and other experts in this informative and interactive webinar where they discuss:
- How you can benchmark and configure a Windows Server 2016 OS
