  • How to find network threats using NIDS Apr 7 2020 5:00 pm UTC 27 mins
    Tatyana Shishkova, security researcher at Kaspersky
    Protecting corporate networks is a challenging task. In this webinar, I will elaborate on Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) – one of vital components of security solutions that analyzes network traffic and is used in perimeter protection.

    This webinar will cover the following topics:

    •What is NIDS, how does it work and what are the popular open-source solutions?
    •Which threats can be effectively detected using NIDS?
    •Real-life examples of malicious traffic and rules to catch them
    •Limitations of NIDS and possible workarounds
  • Prioritizing alerts based on level of risk – a step-by-step guide Mar 31 2020 1:00 pm UTC 29 mins
    Artem Karasev, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Kaspersky
    The number of security alerts processed by information security analysts every day is growing exponentially. With such a high amount of data being analyzed, effective alert prioritization, triage and validation becomes nearly impossible. There are too many blinking lights coming from numerous security products, leading to significant alerts getting buried in the noise. Analysts need an effective solution to quickly validate the nature of suspicious files, URLs and IP addresses and identify incidents warranting their immediate attention.
    During this webinar, we will provide a step-by-step guide to demonstrate how the Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal allows anyone to easily upload suspicious objects and discover if they pose danger to their company.
  • Withstanding the world’s no. 1 attack vector Mar 24 2020 12:00 pm UTC 65 mins

  • Fin7 APT: how billion dollar crime ring remains active after leaders’ arrest Mar 23 2020 8:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Felix Aime, Yury Namestnikov
    When Europol and the DoJ announced the arrest of the leaders of the Fin7 and Carbanak cybercriminal group in 2018, it was believed the group would cease its activity. However, data found in 2019 indicated that the attacks have not only continued but have evolved. Fin7 has extended the number of groups operating under its umbrella, sophisticated its methods and even went on the legitimate job market to hire employees who apparently did not suspect they were working for hackers. The main aim behind Fin7’s malicious activities remained the same though – the stealing of financial assets.

    Сybersecurity experts from Kaspersky Lab’s GReAT team – Yury Namestnikov and Felix Aime – will explain how the new Fin7 activity was detected, which groups are now under its umbrella and how to protect yourself from it.

    Pavel Pokrovsky (Blockchain Security Group Manager, Kaspersky), Peter Fedchenkov (Founder and Chief Revenue Officer, Insolar)
    While many companies in 2019 were just exploring practical business applications for DLT and blockchain, in 2020 we expect a large scaling-up of these projects. Indeed, Gartner listed blockchain as one of the top ten strategic technologies for the next year (Gartner Top Strategic Predictions for 2020 and Beyond).

    However, will they prove their value and deliver the expected ROI?

    3) In-house or outsourced development - how to define the proper resource allocation
    4) How to build a solid security architecture
    5) How to mitigate scalability and interoperability issues

    Following the session, you will come away with practical tips on how to achieve success in your enterprise blockchain or DLT project.

  • Zero-days in the wild: 2019 retrospective Mar 4 2020 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Boris Larin, senior security researcher at Kaspersky
    Attacks that involve zero-day vulnerabilities remain among the most dangerous with more and more investment into zero-day exploits taking place in the criminal world. Zero-day vulnerabilities involve the exploitation of an undiscovered and unfixed weaknesses, which makes them particularly difficult to detect and prevent. If such a vulnerability is found by criminals first, it can be used to create an exploit – a special malicious program that will have open access to an entire system. This “hidden threat” attack scenario is widely used by sophisticated actors in APT attacks and was used to conduct a number of incidents in 2019.
    Security researcher Boris Larin will present an overview of four zero-day vulnerabilities detected and disclosed by Kaspersky in 2019, following mechanisms that detected the exploit, which included Miscosoft Windows OS and Google Chrome exploits.
    In this session, Boris will share:
    •What is happening in the zero-day market
    •What framework was often used to implement many zero-day exploits
    •What work was done by him and his team when working on the following vulnerabilities:
    CVE-2019-0797, CVE-2019-0859, CVE-2019-1458, CVE-2019-13720
