No More Malware: How Financial Institutions can Stop File-Borne Attacks at Scale

Financial Institutions and Insurance companies are uniquely vulnerable to file-borne threats. Having to accept and process tens of thousands of files a day from multiple sources—emails, uploads to customer-facing online portals & apps, and downloads from the web—puts these entities at a unique risk.

KYC, loan application documents, check image uploads, photo evidence and proof during the claims process - all files can be compromised with embedded, zero-day malware that is undetectable by detection-based and signature-based security solutions (and this doesn’t even include the massive volume of attachment-based phishing schemes that corporate office and billing receives).

Join this informative webinar to learn:
- The ways that attackers can implant malware into seemingly safe files commonly used during financial course of business, including .ESX file, PDFs, Excel, and more
- Dissection of a real attack on a financial instruction using files as the threat vector
- The file security trends facing Financial Institutions & Insurance companies
- How a new type of technology, Positive Selection, removes any and all hidden malware from files without interrupting business flow

  • "Don’t Surf, Don’t Click!” The Better Way to Access Websites and Download Files Recorded: Dec 16 2020 58 mins
    Sunil Choudrie, Product Strategy and Chris Newman, Product Manager, Symantec, Richard Hosgood, Dir. Engineering, Votiro
    Now, more than ever, you have to trust your workforce. To support remote teams, organizations are making greater use of web-based applications, systems, and content portals. But trust alone isn’t enough to keep employees—and the organization—safe. Webpages carry risk of malware delivered through browser exploits, and can flip from good to bad in an instant. Even if the page is good, the contents may carry risk (e.g. web email or social media). And that’s before we even think about weaponized files that users might download from the web!

    Telling your staff to not use the web or download files impacts both business productivity and morale. Instead, find out how they can safely browse the web and download files without risk of breach.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    • What webpage and file download risks you need to be most concerned about in 2021
    • How Symantec Web Isolation keeps users safe
    • The options available to design Isolation into your security system
    • How Votiro technology integrates with Symantec Isolation to sanitize file downloads
  • How FedEx, UPS & DHL Customers were Tricked by an Advanced Phishing Campaign. Recorded: Aug 31 2020 43 mins
    Richard Hosgood, North American Director of Engineering, Votiro
    File-borne attacks are on the rise, and 80% of successful breaches are new, unknown, or zero-day attacks that are not recognized by traditional signature-based detection solutions, such as antivirus. An example of this is an April 2020 attack that delivered Dridex ransomware to FedEx, UPS, and DHL customers. Sophisticated phishing emails—cleverly disguised to appear to be from company email accounts were sent with legitimate-looking attachments that delivered the payload. This threat's signature was not recognized in antivirus databases for 2 entire days, leaving businesses vulnerable.

    In the past, detection and alert-based security tools were best-in-class. But in a world of zero-days and an overwhelming amount of attacks, these solutions miss massive quantities of threats—as much as 40%—leaving security teams fighting both alert fatigue and new threats from all fronts.

    In this talk, Richard Hosgood, white hat hacker and North American Director of Engineering at file security company, Votiro, dissects the April 2020 phishing attack, the gaps that antivirus and next-generation antivirus leave for unknown and zero-day threats, and how an emerging technology called Positive Selection technology can actually prevent these types of attacks.
  • What's in that Malicious File? A Live File Dissection Event Recorded: Jul 21 2020 40 mins
    Richard Hosgood, White Hat Hacker & Director of Engineering, Votiro
    Organizations receive malicious files from emails, web uploads, and content-sharing platforms daily. File-borne attacks are on the rise and 40%-60% of malicious files evade and breach existing security defenses to end up in your inboxes, on your platforms, and in your network.

    We want you to send us those files. Seriously. Forward malicious files to badfiles@votiro.com.

    During this live hack dissection event on July 21st at 11am ET, Richard Hosgood, white hat hacker and North American Director of Engineering at file security company, Votiro, will dissect your malicious files live and uncover the malware and viruses that are hidden within.

    You will receive a completely clean, usable copy of your files back. Senders’ information will be kept confidential, and all files will be destroyed after the webinar.

    Richard will also discuss how a new technology – Positive Selection technology – ensures that all files entering an organization are 100% safe, regardless if they enter through email, download, or upload.

    Sign up for this webinar and send us your most malicious, most trojan-, ransomware-, and virus-riddled files to badfiles@votiro.com.
