Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Role of Malware in Intelligence Operations

Imagine you are King or Queen for a day. How would you employ the time and talent of computer hackers? Whom would you target, with what type of malware, and for what purpose? Where would you set technical, legal, and ethical constraints? This presentation will examine the role of malicious software in real-world nation-state intelligence operations. Information Technology continuously transforms the nature of statecraft, from external threats to internal security. Please join noted author and speaker, Dr. Kenneth Geers as he will clarify:
•The roles and risks of law enforcement, counterintelligence, and foreign intelligence operations in the Internet era
•We will consider the attack and defense of everything in a modern state, from elections to electricity
•And we will discuss how enterprises can and should respond to a threat that has no fear of prosecution or retaliation

  • LEARN IT: Detect and Prevent Known and Unknown Malware in Real-Time Recorded: Oct 15 2018 57 mins
    Fernando Montenegro and Gus Evangelakos
    New malware specimens emerge every 4.2 seconds and real-world enterprise networks encounter unknown or suspicious files every 1-2 seconds.



    However, only a fraction of those malicious files are detected by mainstream endpoint security tools, based upon existing malware signatures and behavioral profiles. The rest – unknown files carrying viruses, trojans, worms and other infections – slip through most defenses, undetected.



    Join 451 Research Analyst Fernando Montenegro and Comodo Cybersecurity expert Gus Evangelakos to learn more about the evolving cyber-threat landscape and how IT security professionals can leverage innovative cybersecurity technology.



    This webinar will highlight:

    -The ups and downs of machine learning, static and dynamic malware analysis in the cloud and on your endpoints
    -The benefits of putting a human analyst in the loop to achieve 100% verdicting for unknown files
    -Auto-containment technology – achieving default-deny security with default-allow productivity
    -Valkyrie, the Comodo Cybertechnology cloud-based threat intelligence and verdicting engine



    Information security professionals, threat analysts and cybersecurity experts are encouraged to attend. There will be time for live Q&A with Fernando Montenegro and Comodo Threat Intelligence experts at the end of the session.
  • Hacking Democracy: A Strategic Correlation of Elections and Malware Recorded: Oct 4 2018 61 mins
    Dr. Kenneth Geers, Chief Research Scientist Comodo Cybersecurity
    In politics today, there is no hotter topic than election hacking. Information technology is vulnerable, the Internet is global, and hackers rarely get caught. Therefore, politicians, soldiers, and spies have every incentive to leverage malware in an effort to tip the polls their way. Nonetheless, election hacking has been difficult to prove. At a minimum, security researchers need at least one of two things: tactical forensics acquired at the local level, or strategic analysis of a global dataset. The research presented in this webinar takes the latter approach. Comodo Cybersecurity's Chief Research Scientist, Dr. Kenneth Geers, will examine

    - In-country malware detection in the context of dozens of national-level elections held over the past 18 months
    - Detected malware types and families for each election, using both timelines and geolocation.

    This research serves as a warning for the upcoming U.S. Election in November 2018. First, it demonstrates a strong correlation between modern elections and malware. Second, it shows security administrators what kind of malware they are most likely to see during a campaign – and when.
  • Weighing the Cost of Data Security: Why It’s Important for All Business Sizes Recorded: Jul 24 2018 44 mins
    Chase Cunningham, Forrester Analyst and John Macintosh, Enterprise Systems Engineer with Comodo Cybersecurity
    The digital landscape is doubling in size every two years. By 2020, the data we create and copy annually will reach 44 zettabytes, or 44 trillion gigabytes.* With so much data to manage, one of the biggest challenges is knowing where sensitive data resides – on an endpoint? On a file server? In transit? Or possibly in the hands of a competitor or a bad actor. Only by building context around your most sensitive data will you gain a better understanding of how to protect, prioritize, lock down, and monitor your data, and to avoid damaging data breaches.
    Join Chase Cunningham, Analyst with Forrester and Kevin Santarina, Senior Systems Engineer with Comodo Cybersecurity as they discuss why data protection is a necessary addition to every organization’s security portfolio. Learn how you can:
    •Understand the structure and location of your organization’s high value data
    •Analyze the movement and storage of sensitive data across your network and beyond
    •Protect sensitive information from exposure by employees and third parties
    •Build an action plan to enforce a least privileged model and remediate when sensitive data is overexposed

  • World Map of Malware: The Geography of Hostile Code Recorded: Jul 17 2018 55 mins
    Dr. Kenneth Geers, Chief Research Scientist Comodo Cybersecurity
    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.

  • Comodo Cybersecurity: Render Attacks Useless Recorded: Jun 26 2018 2 mins
    Comodo Cybersecurity
    Trojans, and other malicious “wares” generate approximately one million new specimens of hostile software every day. Although many cybersecurity vendors will promise full protection against threats —the truth is, they can’t, no one can. Businesses and people must accept that malware cannot be successfully blocked 100% of the time. As a leader in cybersecurity for over twenty years, Comodo Cybersecurity seeks to protect businesses by understanding the true nature of the digital environment and what malware needs to survive.
  • How Comodo's Containment Technology Renders Malware Useless Recorded: May 22 2018 49 mins
    Rik Turner, Ovum Asaf Ashirov, Comodo Cybersecurity
    Are you still relying on traditional antiviruses and antimalware for protection? You might be at risk.
    Threat labs around the world detect over 1 million new strains of malware every single day. On top of this, cybersecurity experts have ruled signature-based detection used in most commercial antiviruses and anti-malware only catch 30% to 40% of these malicious applications. These programs should not be your only line of defense against the latest threats.
    Join Ovum Senior Analyst Rik Turner and Comodo Cybersecurity Product Marketing Manager Asaf Ashirov as they discuss the latest security threats, the risks they pose, and their solutions. When you join us, you will also learn about auto-containment, a cutting edge integrated platform of technologies that protect against the most advanced threats across all network layers.
