World Map of Malware: The Geography of Hostile Code

Presented by

Dr. Kenneth Geers, Chief Research Scientist Comodo Cybersecurity

About this talk

Zero-day malware--new malware that has never been seen before-- continues to plague businesses of all sizes. Millions of these unknown files are being crafted or modified each year. They cannot be detected by existing security systems; they hide on endpoints and networks and remain among the most important and effective tools hackers use. Join Chief Research Scientist at Comodo Cybersecurity and NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence Ambassador, Dr. Kenneth Geers as he analyzes how geopolitical events affect malware in the world's hottest cyber-attack zones. Webinar attendees will learn: • How cyber defenders benefit from spending more time on strategic cyber defense analysis. • Why cities, countries, continents, verticals and even geopolitical events have their own malware fingerprint. • How threat research and intelligence can quickly provide actionable intelligence to Network Security professionals at the tactical level. The session draws on data from Comodo Cybersecurity's Threat Intelligence Team's analysis of 300 million malware incidents in the first six months of 2018 and how you can leverage this technology to enhance your IT infrastructure.
