  • Adventures in TI: What is your IP Reputation? Recorded: Oct 17 2017 48 mins
    Guy Rosefelt, Director of PM, APAC Threat Intelligence & Web Security
    Abstract: Can you afford not knowing how bad your provider's IP reputation is? How likely are IP addresses adjacent to you of being infected with malware or participating in botnets?

    NSFOCUS has been tracking the reputation of IP addresses globally by ASN for over a year and recently released the August 2017 Global IP Reputation report. Some interesting patterns have emerged worldwide as the number of IP addresses added to reputation lists continues to increase due to Mirai, WannaCry and other malware infecting the Internet of Things.

    NSFOCUS SecLab is tracking IP reputation across 9 categories, including SPAM, DDoS, botnets, and web attackers. This talk will present global IP reputation trends and rank the countries with the worst IP reputation…and it may not be China.

    Xiaobing Sun, Principal Security Researcher
    This year the cyber-security realm has experienced a few dramatic emerging trends to include a couple of the largest denial-of-service attacks and ransomware outbreaks in history. Follow NSFOCUS as we take a deeper look into these DDoS attacks and some of the processes that now seem to be tied to the overall attack-chain. Additionally, we will learn how protective measures such as Threat Intelligence and cloud-based DDoS defenses are adding value to circumvent and mitigate attack efforts from various threat actors.
  • NSA Hacking Tools Exposed Pt 2: Are You Protected? Recorded: May 24 2017 31 mins
    Cody Mercer, Senior Threat Research Analyst
    The ‘Shadow Brokers’ have recently released a new cache of malware exploits into the wild in which our NSF Threat Intelligence Researchers were able to reverse engineer and ‘sandbox’ for analytical purposes. With this noted, very sophisticated malware strains developed at the ‘State-Sponsored’ level by such entities as NSA are now readily available and primarily targeting vulnerabilities identified in Microsoft OS’s and MS applications.

    This will be the second installment to my previous BrightTalk presentation that will take a deeper look into specific exploits released by the Shadow Brokers and their attributed TTP’s (Techniques, Tactics, Procedures) and how NSFOCUS’s Threat Intelligence can assist in securing your security posture.

    Join NSFOCUS in this event to discuss:

    •What are the exploits Fuzzbunch, Dandersprit, and OddJob and their associated campaigns?

    •How can NSF’s Threat Intelligence Portal and Reputation Feeds protect you and your company against these recently released malwares?

    •Gain a better understanding of TI components to include ‘Strategic’ and ‘Tactical’ information and how knowledge of these exploits will help protect your company from future compromise.
  • Service Provider Playbook- Building a Case for Managed DDoS Services Recorded: Apr 26 2017 50 mins
    Stephen Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst, NSFOCUS
    There is no doubt that DDoS attack activity is at an all-time high as attacks continue to plague the Internet; causing outages and impacting organizations on a scale never seen before. Regardless of the intent, the likelihood of larger and more frequent DDoS attacks is forcing service providers to plan for the inevitable. Most don’t realize there is a tremendous opportunity for service providers to protect their customers, and significantly profit from this activity. Delivering Managed DDoS Services can be very profitable due to the intensification of DDoS attacks, and the rising demand for protection.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    •The Best Way to Defeat DDoS Attacks Targeting Your Customers and Your Infrastructure
    •How to Build an Internal Case for Your Organization to Offer Managed DDoS Services
    •About the Complete Service Provider DDoS Mitigation Solution

  • Understanding the Threat Intelligence Ecosystem Recorded: Nov 10 2016 14 mins
    Stephen Gates
    Everybody talks about threat intelligence today, but how well are they distinguishing raw data from actionable intelligence? Stephen Gates of NSFOCUS discusses cybersecurity and the new threat intelligence ecosystem.

    "The operative word is 'actionable,'" says Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst at NSFOCUS. Threat intelligence means a lot of things to a lot of people, he adds. But what it comes down to is: "Do you want to gain further insight into the threat landscape that your organization faces on a daily basis? That's what threat intel is all about - gaining that insight with actionable intelligence and understanding the threats [you're] under."

    In an interview about the threat intelligence ecosystem, Gates discusses:

    How many organizations fail to distinguish actionable TI;
    Why the ecosystem is so critical to cybersecurity;
    How NSFOCUS distinguishes itself in a crowded marketplace.

  • NSA Hacking Tools Exposed... Who's Next? Recorded: Sep 7 2016 61 mins
    Cody Mercer, Sr. Threat Research Analyst, NSFOCUS
    Every day, the techniques, attack vectors, and tools used by ethical and non-ethical hackers grows exponentially. In lieu of the recent breach conducted by the ‘Shadow Brokers” on the NSA, a new hacking arsenal has been released into the wild. Unfortunately, for the majority who are unaware of this recent breach, they not only open themselves up to being compromised, but also do not possess the skill-set and proper security measures required to combat against these nefarious actors - and their advanced weaponry.

    Join us in this session where we’ll discuss:
    •Black-Hats and White-Hats and the intrinsic life-cycle of the hacking process
    •The real motivations and skills behind state-sponsored hackers, hacktivists, and script kiddies
    •How hackers will use the NSA tools for even more nefarious activities
    •How to combat these highly-sophisticated hacking tools with the right defenses
  • Threat Intel - All Hype or Big Help Recorded: Aug 11 2016 62 mins
    Stephen Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst, NSFOCUS
    Over the past few years, organizations of all sizes have been trying to gain more insight into the evolving cyber threat landscape by adding more people and more technologies. As the attack surface widens, threat actors continue to advance their tactics and techniques, and have proven that most organizations’ defensive postures are simply inadequate. At the same time, organizations are drowning in their own “big data”, and adding more data sounds like the pond just got deeper. Most are asking themselves, “will more data really make us more secure?”

    Join this session to gain a firm understanding of:
    • What threat intelligence actually is, where it comes from, and how to get it
    • How organizations use threat intel to gain more insight into the threats they face daily
    • How to make threat intel usable, actionable, interpretable, and distributable
    • How to build a case for the value of threat intel in your organization

  • The Dark Side of DDoS Recorded: Jun 15 2016 61 mins
    Stephen Gates, Chief Research Analyst, NSFOCUS
    For more than a decade, attackers have used DDoS to disrupt an organization’s operations. Today’s DDoS attacks are being used in combination with a much greater threat. Information breaches and malware planting are being hidden by so called “Dark DDoS” attacks. In order to hide their tracks, attackers overwhelm the security and logging tier with smaller, repetitive attacks.

    Nearly every enterprise is looking for a way to deploy the most effective DDoS defenses; while at the same time reducing operational expenses associated with these attacks. Organizations want to fully manage their risk; while preserving their security effectiveness. Today’s Dark DDoS attacks are easy to defeat with the proper defenses.

    In this educational webinar, Stephen Gates - Chief Research Analyst at NSFOCUS, will show you how:

    •Attackers use DDoS to hide Ransomware and other malicious attacks
    •DDoS extortion campaigns work, and how you can ignore their threats of downtime
    •To protect your security and logging tiers, while maintaining operational effectiveness
    •To eliminate the effects of the smaller, shorter attacks targeting your security layers
