Botnets, one of the oldest threats on the internet, are still the most popular weapon in a hacker’s arsenal. They offer ease of use, flexibility, and high availability, traits ideal for launching large-scale lethal cyber-attacks around the world. This webinar will present highlights from the NSFOCUS 2018 Botnet Trend report including an overview of botnet activity and insight into the four most prominent botnet families active today. The attendee should be able to better identify botnet activity based on the recommendations provided.
NSFOCUS Security Labs research has seen a dramatic decrease in DDoS attacks between 2017 and 2018. We are in consensus with other TI vendors as to most of the driving factors behind this large scale reduction, except one. This webinar will show why NSFOCUS is breaking from the pack on one of the key factors leading to the significant decrease in DDoS attacks in 2018.

JSA TV is proud to share the April installment of its 2019 Virtual CEO Roundtable series, "Blockchain & AI: The Next Gen Battleground for Cybersecurity". The roundtable is moderated by Gerry Christensen of Mind Commerce, and panelists include top industry executives, Guy Rosefelt of NSFOCUS, Mayande Walker of OpenCryptoTrust (OpenCT) and Dominic Steil of Dapps Inc.
With the onslaught of IoT and the growing reliance on AI-driven processes, networks and machines, cybersecurity is a critical concern. Enter blockchain, a distributed ledger that allows for public, decentralized transactions without the need for third-party intervention. Since the interaction is public, blockchain technology is often described not just as ‘reliable’, but also as ‘incorruptible infrastructure’. Is blockchain the next battleground arena for preventing cyberattacks?
Watch the roundtable to learn what the latest developments and deployment timelines are and what we can expect in the year ahead in network security, blockchain and AI developments.

Over the last few years, container technology has grown rapidly among many enterprises from large to small. According to the RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud Report, over 50% of the enterprises has now adopted some kinds of container technologies. As with any other new technologies, containers have brought new security risks into those organizations’ infrastructure. What are these new risks, and how to asses and mitigate them have become some of the important questions in many of CIO and CISO’s mind.
Recently, NSFOCUS and NeuVector jointly published the “2018 NSFOCUS Technical Report of Container Security” to address these questions. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the highlights from this report, focusing on the new attack vectors introduced by the container technology and the general way to protect against them. We will also discuss how to build security into your pipeline and introduce NeuVector’s run-time contain security solution.
NSFOCUS showed in our “2018 H1 Cybersecurity Insights” report that "Recidivists are responsible for 40% of the attacks we saw on the internet, most of which are botnet activities and DDoS attacks". Since botnet activities and DDoS attacks are usually launched from multiple sources in a collaborative way, it's not surprising to see that many of these recidivists are working together as a group in these attacks. We call these groups "IP Chain-Gangs" as most people had trouble pronouncing "recidivists”. Opening a new area of research, NSFOCUS recently published our “Behavior Analysis of IP Chain-Gangs” report documenting how, by using innovative techniques, we identify "IP Chain-Gangs" and study the behavior of the chain-gangs using DDoS attack data collected by NSFOCUS since 2017. In this webinar, we will provide insights into this intriguing new research, explaining how we identify IP Chain-Gangs, how we characterize IP Chain-Gang behavior, and how future research can be used to improve botnet and DDoS mitigation.

Recent evidence shows that a surprisingly high portion of vulnerabilities incorporated into malware or exploit kits are ranked low or medium severity. Counter to commonly-accepted practices, focusing only on high-severity vulnerabilities and setting a ‘cut-off’ point for lower scored issues, is not a safe or effective strategy. More importantly, proof-of-concept (POC) code for lower priority vulnerabilities is appearing more quickly after 0-day announcement leading to leading to widespread attacks equally as quickly. NSFOCUS and Nopsec will delve into this recent trend, discuss some of these lower level vulnerabilities being quickly exploited, and provide some thoughts how to better protect against these in the future.
According to observations from the NSFOCUS Threat Intelligence Center (NTI), nearly 20% of attack source IP addresses have initiated more than one type of attack. That and other attack type trends such as DDoS, malware and web intrusions are only on the rise. The NSFOCUS 2018 H1 Cybersecurity Insights Report shows how bad the threat landscape was for the first half of this year and predicts what it will be like for the remainder. This webinar shows the driving forces behind these trends and what you can do to prepare for them.
Dado que los ataques dirigidos a las aplicaciones web son cada vez más frecuentes, es más importante que nunca que las organizaciones comprendan cómo protegerse contra los atacantes que apuntan a todos los niveles de la infraestructura. Los malintencionados están utilizando tecnologías, herramientas y conocimiento para explorar dónde eres más susceptible al ataque. Aunque eres susceptible de atacar, no tienes que ser vulnerable.
Si usted es como la mayoría de las organizaciones, ya tiene una solución DDoS implementada, pero eso podría no ser lo suficientemente bueno. Cada vez más, los expertos recomiendan alejarse de los puntos únicos de falla, duplícalos o a veces triplicar, las soluciones de mitigación DDoS.
Al adoptar una estrategia de mitigación DDoS híbrida (capacidad local y nube), las organizaciones tienen la mejor ruta hacia la resiliencia y eficiencia operativa en el evento de un ataque DDoS.
• ¿Cómo estás definiendo la mitigación?
• Si está utilizando una compañía de mitigación DDoS, ¿cuál es el mejor momento de mitigar?
• ¿Tiene solución de nube como opción de failover?
• ¿Estás haciendo todo lo que puedes para proteger a tu organización contra el próximo ataque?

As attacks targeting web applications are becoming more frequent, it’s more important than ever for organizations to understand how to protect against attackers targeting all levels of the infrastructure. Attackers are using technologies, tools, and reconnaissance to scout where you are most susceptible to assault. Although you are susceptible to attack, you don’t have to be vulnerable.
By adopting a two-solution DDoS mitigation strategy – employing one mitigation downstream to defend at the point of attack and the other upstream to provide protection closer to the attacker before it reaches your network – organizations have the best path to resiliency and operational efficiency in the event of a DDoS attack.
•How are you defining detection?
•If you’re using a DDoS mitigation company, what’s the time to mitigate?
•Do you have cloud solution as failover option?
•Are you doing all that you can to protect your organization against the next attack?

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.
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.
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.
