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

Detect Ransomware Before It’s Too Late

By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once CryptoWall executes and connects to an external command and control server, it starts to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.
Don’t fall victim to ransomware!

AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.

You'll learn:
- How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
- How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
- Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage

  • Racing Against Nation States on the Automation Continuum Recorded: Oct 25 2016 34 mins
    CP Morey, VP Products & Marketing at Phantom Cyber
    Both Presidential candidates agree on the need for increased spending on our nation’s infrastructure. While we tend to think first of bridges, roads, and other physical features, cyber is also an area impossible to ignore given the pervasiveness of technology in our lives.

    Without question, the speed, sophistication, and volume of cyber security attacks is constantly changing. In the case of nation states, the motives are also shifting from spying and surveillance to using offensive capabilities to attack critical infrastructure, national security assets, and even the political system itself. It’s no longer just about the money; safety and even lives may be at stake.

    Adversaries are attacking us at an unmanageable scale. For instance, research sponsored by Department of Homeland Security and NSA showed environments with security event traffic of more than 1 billion alerts per day. Even after reducing the load to 1 million alerts per day with correlation and other tools, more than 20,000 human analysts would be needed to respond.

    State-backed adversaries are using automation against us. It’s time we do the same, and projects like Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab are leading us there.

    Join our webcast to learn how public and private organizations are progressing on the security automation continuum from simple security lifecycle management to predictive response strategies.
  • Best Practices: Architecting Security for Microsoft Azure VMs Recorded: Oct 25 2016 61 mins
    Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh, EMEA Director of Solutions Architecture
    Do you know if your workloads are secure? Do you have the same security and compliance coverage across all of the cloud platforms and datacenters running your critical applications? Are you having to design your security framework each time you deploy to a new region or datacentre?

    Whether you’re working with multiple cloud environments or exclusively on Azure, there are certain things you should consider when moving assets to Azure. As with any cloud deployment, security is a top priority, and moving your workloads to the cloud doesn’t mean you’re not responsible for the security of your operating system, applications and data. Building on the security of the Azure infrastructure, this shared security responsibility starts with making sure your Azure environment is secure.

    Register for this impactful webinar as we discuss step-by-step what you need to do to secure access at the administrative, application and network layers.

    In this webinar, we will take a look at:
    • The Shared Security Model: What security you are responsible for to protect your content, application, systems and networks

  • Breached Elections - How Hackers Are Influencing Politics Recorded: Oct 24 2016 60 mins
    Alex Holden, Founder and CISO of Hold Security, LLC
    Political elections shape our society for the years to come. While the foreign hackers are no longer watching our politics out of interest, they are electronically directly interfering with our politics. The Sony Pictures breach was more of a political statement, than a data loss event. With US elections around the corner, we are more of a cyber breach target than ever. Wikileaks is releasing documents, Russian hackers allegedly breaching DNC, and there is more to come. We will examine the current trends, look at the history of the worst manifestations of hackers influencing politics. Then we will draw conclusions on how the politics are changing under a threat of a constant privacy breach.

  • IT Security & Privacy Governance in the Cloud Recorded: Oct 18 2016 61 mins
    Moderated by Rebecca Herold, The Privacy Professor; Jacqueline Cooney, BAH, Daniel Catteddu, CSA, Chris Griffith from HPE
    After multiple newsworthy data breaches in recent times, IT security and privacy governance has gained importance across the globe. Most organizations have established security and compliance policies and procedures to protect their intellectual property and corporate assets, especially in the IT space. As companies transition their applications and data to the cloud, it is critical for them to maintain, or preferably surpass, the level of security they had in their traditional IT environment. Leaders are also responsible for defining policies to address privacy concerns and raise awareness of data protection within their organization, and for ensuring that their cloud providers adhere to the defined privacy policies. Failure to ensure IT Security when using cloud services could ultimately result in higher costs and potential loss of business, thus eliminating any of the potential benefits of the cloud.

    While security and privacy are related, they are also distinct. IT security is primarily concerned with defending against attacks, not all of which are aimed at stealing data, while privacy is specifically related to personal data held by an organization, which may be endangered by negligence or software bugs, not necessarily by malevolent persons. On this webinar our panel of experts will address some of the key distinctions, and discuss some best practices for managing IT security and implementing privacy governance for the cloud.
  • Elections, Deceptions and the Coming Cyberwar Recorded: Oct 17 2016 39 mins
    John Bambenek, Manager, Threat Systems at Fidelis Cybersecurity
    Earlier this year, it appeared Russian state sponsored actors had not only hacked the Democratic National Convention and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, they were using the purloined information for a propaganda operation insider the United States to attempt to influence the election. Now that the United States has made it clear there will be retaliation for this, we may have crossed over to open cyberwar. This talk will talk about the lead up to where we are today, what the likely outcomes of two developed nations attacking each other will be and what it means for consumers and enterprises who still most operate globally.

  • Privacy vs. Security: Balancing Vulnerability Awareness & Incident Prevention Recorded: Oct 14 2016 59 mins
    Keith Moulsdale, Partner with Whiteford Taylor Preston LLP, Tim Vogel: CEO & CISO, Xtium; Kevin Lancaster, CEO, ID Agent
    Join us for this timely discussion with privacy and data security experts. With ever looming environmental threats such as of ransomware, data theft, denial-of- service attacks, every organization and every industry must be focused on IT security. However, there is a delicate balance and frequent conflicts between the idea of information privacy and security.

    How much individual privacy can be expected in an inter-connected world? How much should be sacrificed for the sake of maximizing corporate security? And where (if anywhere) can the lines between personal and corporate be drawn? How do these issue impact policies, training and security surrounding even the most simple of business communication tools: email.

    This presentation will provide an overview of the privacy vs. security challenges and explore specifically how these issues are impacting the issue of user email credentials and email vulnerabilities. This is especially critical given that emails are the number one contributor to data breaches. In fact, 63% of breaches in the US last year were the result of a compromised email credential.

    We will then a) discuss common misperceptions and security holes that can lead to ransomware and other malware vulnerabilities, b) compare the various alternatives for proactively addressing these vulnerabilities, and c) discuss strategies for preventing and responding to cyberattacks.
  • Privacy and/or Security – It’s a Matter of Perspective! Recorded: Oct 13 2016 41 mins
    Michael Lester, Chairman & Co-founder of SecretValet LLC
    Germany and France have “Declared War” on encryption in the name of national security and fighting terrorism at the same time that Apple and Microsoft have increased their encryption to ensure privacy. The twin concepts of Privacy and Security seem to be at odds with each other with governments primarily pushing for less personal privacy to provide greater national security while private corporations are pushing for more personal privacy claiming that personal privacy has little to no effect on national security or the fight against terrorism. How can both be right/wrong? How is it trending? Join us for a look at where we are now, how we got here, why most people are asking the wrong questions, and how the outcome of this battle will affect individuals, corporations, and countries alike.
  • Turbocharge your Cyber Investigations, Part 1 Recorded: Oct 13 2016 32 mins
    Jeff Lenton, Solutions Architect, RiskIQ
    While their cyber tactics may be continuously changing, bad actors can’t avoid interacting with core components of the internet. These interactions leave a trail that when connected through rigorous threat infrastructure analysis, can reveal the full scale of an attack and provide the information needed to determine the best response. The key to this analysis is access to a variety of global datasets and the ability to correlate and pivot between them in your investigation.

    In this two part series we will look at a range of global datasets and how each can be used to shed additional light on your adversary’s infrastructure. This session will focus on Passive DNS, Whois and Malware data. We will also demonstrate how security analysts can use the free community version of RiskIQ’s PassiveTotal to gain access to and pivot across these global datasets.
  • Using machines to combat criminals Recorded: Oct 13 2016 39 mins
    Lloyd Webb, Sales Engineering Director, Cylance
    2016 is turning out to be a landmark year in terms of Ransomware and there’s no sign of these threats slowing down any time soon. Ransomware is not new, it is just getting more sophisticated and is inflicting major damage to companies, organisations and individuals, shaping up to be a frighteningly lucrative year for cybercriminals, where any person with a computer can be exploited and used as a revenue source with the potential for vast profits.

    Learn how Cylance have revolutionized the industry by utilizing data science and security experts to provide a next-generation cybersecurity technology that proactively prevents, rather than detects the execution of advanced persistent threats and malware in real time before they ever cause harm.
  • Mostly OK Means Occasionally Disastrous: Context, Privacy & User Expectations Recorded: Oct 12 2016 46 mins
    John Wunderlich, Information Privacy & Security Expert, John Wunderlich & Associates
    Protecting customer privacy is usually closely aligned with security. However, when faced with national security threats, where do companies draw the line? In the example of social media companies that are trying to limit the reach of extremist videos and suspending extremist accounts, a problem can arise when such a system is used by an authoritarian regime to take down or identify individuals opposing it. The same tools, but used in a different context, become something other than what was intended. Join this talk as John Wunderlich, an information privacy and security expert, discusses why incorporating privacy into the design of such tools is key to protecting them from abuse by authoritarian regimes.
  • Cyber Risk Awareness: Preventing PII Theft & Identity Fraud Recorded: Oct 12 2016 45 mins
    George Vroustouris, Founder of Undo Identity Theft
    We have traded off our privacy rights for security, and our security processes for convenience. This is compromising the culture of high reliability in the American workplace. By de-engineering our need for ‘convenience’ back to our requirement for ‘security’ and ultimately back to our ‘privacy rights’ we can assess and define the steps required to develop a new methodology in the virtual world, addressing our perception of Privacy vs Security, and the need for both.

    George Vroustouris, Founder of Undo Identity Theft has spent more than 6 years researching and studying the risks and impact surrounding personal identifiable information (PII) theft, the sensitive personal data used to commit identity fraud. Join this presentation and learn about the privacy and security risks as our lives are becoming increasingly digitized.
