    Barracuda is out with its latest Spear Phishing Update, and among the key findings: a rise in email account takeover and lateral phishing. Why are enterprise defenses failing to detect these strikes? What new solutions will improve defenses? Barracuda's Michael Flouton shares insights.

    How significant are the threats from email account takeover and lateral phishing? "Quite simply, these are extraordinarily difficult attacks to prevent," says Flouton, VP of product strategy at Barracuda. "In fact, I'd go so far as to say they're virtually impossible to prevent."

    In an interview about the latest spear phishing trends, Flouton discusses:

    Highlights of the Q2 report;
    Why account takeover and lateral phishing are so difficult to detect;
    How Barracuda is helping organizations bolster spear phishing defenses.
  • With applications moving to the cloud, what do we need the firewall for? Recorded: Sep 6 2019 45 mins
    Justin Ong, Spiceworks; Gary Williams, Betgenius; Oliver Braekow, Barracuda
    With organizations using more SaaS and IaaS services as ever what does it mean for traditional perimeter security?

    If you’re using a firewall that’s not designed for the cloud, you may be suffering from slow application performance negatively impacting business performance and leaving yourself wide open to an ever growing population of threats.

    On this Video Meetup we’ll discuss why next-generation firewall are not necessarily cloud ready and how to tell if your current firewall may be obsolete. We’ll be talking with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from Barracuda.

    Gemma Allen, Barracuda; Chris Hill, Barracuda; Tim Roberts, EPS of Vermont, Inc; Justin Ong, Spiceworks
    The beauty of cloud-based applications is that they are accessible anywhere at any time! The downside? They’re accessible from ANYWHERE at ANYTIME. If you’re using a network security solution that’s based on technology developed before the cloud was relevant, it may not be able to keep up with constantly ever-evolving threats.

    On this Video Meetup we’ll discuss what it means for a network security solution to be native to the cloud and why your current network security solution may soon be obsolete. We’ll be talking with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from Barracuda.

    We’ll be discussing:


    Creating secure pathways across multiple WANs, multiple carriers, and multiple cloud providers

    Orchestrating security in complex cloud environments

    Fast tracking your team's adoption of cloud security best practices
  • PODCAST: Reinventing Security Awareness Training Recorded: Jun 18 2019 12 mins
    Michael Flouton, Barracuda
    Want to improve how your organization delivers and absorbs security awareness training? Then it comes down to reinventing your approach, including gamification, says Barracuda's Michael Flouton.

    A good place to start: Redefining user education. "A lot of organizations look at training as something they might do once a year, and they're kind of viewing it as a project, not a process" says Flouton, VP product strategy with Barracuda. "I think related to that ... is that oftentimes organizations might view training as an exercise in checking the box ... instead of realizing the upside they have in terms of driving cultural change and really meaningful risk reduction."

  • Schulungen und Simulationen: Machen Sie Ihre Mitarbeiter fit gegen Phishing-Mail Recorded: May 29 2019 54 mins
    Christian Töpfer Manager Solutions & Services, heise Business Services; Sascha Breitzke Channel Manager, Barracuda Network
    Künstliche Intelligenz ist bei Sicherheitslösungen in aller Munde, aber wie sieht es mit der menschlichen Intelligenz aus? In dieser Webcast-Aufzeichnung erfahren Sie, wie Sie Ihre Mitarbeiter schulen können, damit sie nicht leichtgläubig und ohne Misstrauen Phishing-Mails öffnen.
  • Umfassender Phishing-Schutz in Echtzeit dank künstlicher Intelligenz Recorded: May 1 2019 67 mins
    Julian Schreier, Sales Engineer, Barracuda Networks; Christian Töpfer, Manager Solutions & Services, heise Business Services
    Social-Engineering- und Spear-Phishing-Angriffe werden immer ausgefeilter. Viele Firmen haben Schwierigkeiten, ihre Sicherheitslösungen auf dem aktuellen Stand zu halten. In diesem Webcast erfahren Sie, wie Sie einem "Account-Takeover" bei Ihren Mitarbeitern und sonstigem Cyberbetrug mit den richtigen Maßnahmen und Lösungen in Echtzeit vorbeugen.

    Unternehmen sind das Ziel zahlreicher Bedrohungen und Exploits. Am gängigsten sind Phishing-Angriffe und zielgerichtete E-Mail-Angriffe von kompromittierten Konten mit der Absicht, per E-Mail an sensible oder vertrauenswürdige Daten heranzukommen. Mitarbeiter sollen dabei dazu verleitet werden, wertvolle Informationen offenzulegen oder Geldbeträge direkt an die Hacker zu überweisen. Bei fast der Hälfte der erfolgreichen Angriffe handelt es sich um die Übernahme/das Kapern von Konten ("Account-Takeover").

    Doch die Angreifer haben nicht genug. Die Bedrohungen werden immer ausgefeilter und finanziell gut ausgestattete Cyberkriminelle entwickeln zunehmend komplexe Varianten von Malware- und Social-Engineering-Angriffen. Wenn es parallel dazu in den Unternehmen an entsprechenden Sicherheitsvorkehrungen mangelt, ist guter Rat teuer.

    In diesem Webcast sind Sie richtig, wenn Sie erfahren wollen,
    - warum zielgerichtete Angriffe manche Mitarbeiter zu kostspieligen Fehlern verleiten,
    - wie Ihre Mitarbeiter böswillige Absichten und Betrugsversuche identifizieren,
    - wie KI genutzt wird, um das einzigartige Kommunikationsmuster eines Angreifers in Echtzeit zu erlernen,
    - wie KI, eine Integration in Microsoft Office 365 und Brand Protection zu einer umfassenden Cloud-basierten Sicherheitslösung kombiniert wird und
    - warum gerade Ihr Unternehmen von einer Lösung von Barracuda profitieren kann.
  • PODCAST: Spear Phishing - Top 3 Threats Recorded: Apr 25 2019 11 mins
    Asaf Cidon, Barracuda's Senior Vice President, Email Protection Products;
    Among the top new spear phishing threats to enterprises: Extortion. Asaf Cidon of Barracuda outlines the top three spear phishing threats and new strategies to defend against them.

    Cidon, Barracuda's Senior Vice President, Email Protection Products, was surprised to see how quickly extortion has taken off as a prevalent threat, as outlined by Barracuda' newest spear phishing report.

    "We're seeing that attackers are increasingly bypassing existing email defenses by sending emails that include no attachments or links, and basically tell the recipient that the attacker has obtained a password to their account, and wants them to send some bitcoin, otherwise they will expose very embarrassing information about the recipient," Cidon says. "In our report, we found that these attacks comprise over 10 percent of all the spear phishing attacks."

    In an interview about the spear phishing trends outlined in this report, Cidon discusses:

    - Insights from Barracuda's latest report;
    - Why top threats are so successful;
    - New defensive strategies and solutions.
  • The Next Level of Cloud Security: Taming Complexity Recorded: Apr 23 2019 40 mins
    Richard Turner, Dir. Public Cloud Marketing, Barracuda; Vinayak Shastri, Sr. Product Manager, Barracuda
    Organizations know that cloud security is different than what they were used to doing on-premises...but what many don’t realize is that cloud introduces new vulnerabilities that their on-premises world never needed to account for.

    In the future, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to misconfiguration, credentials mismanagement, or insider theft – not the cloud itself. Just what do organizations need to worry about in the cloud, and how can they remediate these new vulnerabilities?

    Join us to discuss these new challenges and what organizations can do to better protect themselves in the Public Cloud.
  • The Last Line of Defense in the Battle Against Phishing: Users Recorded: Mar 29 2019 62 mins

    Defending your business against social-engineering and phishing attacks is crucial in today’s cyber landscape. Although your users may pose a high security risk they can also act as an additional layer of security by training them to be ever vigilant and to recognize the subtle clues of even the most cunning phishing attempts.

    On this Video Meetup we’ll talk to an IT Pro from the Spiceworks Community about implementing and managing a security awareness program within their organization and the lessons learned. We’ll also be joined by an expert from Barracuda to discuss how to best protect your company and train your users to be on the lookout.

    We’ll be discussing:

    How to design and implement a security awareness program that uses positive reinforcement to embed effective practices through out every business process.

    The importance of identifying the human risk factor through security surveys and testing utilizing the most up-to-date simulated phishing and social-engineering campaigns.

    How automating your incident response can keep attacks from spreading through your organization, including sending alerts to impacted users and removing malicious emails directly from their inboxes.

  • Shaping a security framework for multi cloud adoption Recorded: Feb 22 2019 45 mins
    Chris Hill, RVP, Public Cloud EMEA; Jez Back, Founder & Principal Erebus Technology Consulting Services Ltd
    One of the challenges with public cloud environments is the rate at which they change. Yet the ability to change / grow elastically is one of the key advantages to adopting public cloud. Complicate that further with a multi-cloud environment and you quickly find yourself lacking the ability to visualize your infrastructure, drill down into detail, gather resource level information and understand the relationship and interconnectivity of those resources and how they affect compliance and your security posture.

    Gartner has predicted that “Through 2020, 80% of cloud breached will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud provider vulnerabilities”.

    So how can you ensure your organisation not only has complete visibility of its cloud infrastructure but is also securing its workloads and apps and being compliant? Is it really an impossible task?

    Find out more in this webinar with Chris Hill, RVP of Public Cloud at Barracuda Networks and Jez Back, Founder & Principal Erebus Technology Consulting Services Ltd, where they will discuss:
    • The threat landscape around cloud infrastructure
    • Shared security model – what are you really responsible for when it comes to cloud security
    • Challenges associated with multi-cloud and keeping your organisation secure
    • How to maintain compliance across your cloud environment
