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

The Rise of Surveillance Mobile Malware

With the increase in mobile and smart devices, we've expanded the threat landscape not only against threats to steal information, but for threats that have real physical risks. For instance, recent research by Google Project Zero and Volexity showed sophisticated attacks against both Android and iPhone devices that were targeted at Uighur Muslims and Tibet. Victims of this malware are targeted for persecution by the government of the People's Republics of China.

This talk will cover not only these attacks in specific, but in how threats are emerging that use new technologies which are being used to create physical threats to its victims and what that means for enterprises, SMBs, and society at large.


- Technical discussion on mobile surveillance techniques and malware.
- Cover real-world instances where such cyber attacks have led to physical harms.
- Discuss practical techniques to begin to mitigate such threats.

  • Threat Analysis and Breach Protection Aug 18 2020 3:00 pm UTC 35 mins
    Kalani Enos, Partner/VCISO/Threat Analysis, Immersion Security
    As the world continues the work-from-home initiative in order to combat the COVID-19 threat to humanity, organizations must also consider that threat actors (hackers, Advanced Persistent Threats, etc.) may take this opportunity to exploit existing vulnerabilities normally mitigated in an office environment behind a firewall, as an example, but not necessarily mitigated in a Telework environment. This presentation will discuss the following topics

    - Discuss the recent rise Threat Actor exploits of Telework applications, and provide a means of ‘visibility’ by organizations to detect, analyze and remediate threats attempting to exploit vulnerabilities.

    - Visibility into emerging threat capabilities to introduce ransomware and malware into a remote computer/mobile device. Example: COVIDLOCK ransomware on Android smart phones and how to detect and remediate.

    - How VPN is only a step in the right direction towards accessing and transmitting secure, sensitive data. How additional applications and best practices can assist organizations to maintain Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) in the near-immediate term.

    - The advantage of educating employees on the dangers associated with working remote, and whether use of personal devices versus company-provided devices are viable options.

    - How Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers can assist your organization in maintaining effective CIA in a Work From Home environment. The presenter will also discuss limitations and the often overlooked Shared Responsibility.

  • Cybersecurity in the New World Aug 17 2020 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    John Lee, Managing Director, Global Resilience Federation ASIA-PACIFIC Pte Ltd
    Organizations are affected by changes in the external environment. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated our vulnerabilities. Companies are stretched financially and operationally as they have to adjust to a new business model. Many countries have implemented lockdowns and restriction on travel and logistics. Employees are working from home and some businesses have shut down if they cannot remodel their services. Past major events such as the terror attacks in beginning of this century, the hacks of critical infrastructure in the last decade, major data breaches in the last 20 years, global financial markets crash in 2008 and others have impacted many countries and companies that are not prepared.

    As most of our systems and processes depends on digital technologies, it leaves us open to cyber attacks. We need to be prepared for the next external change that may leave us vulnerable to an attack. In the presentation some of the ways to increase our cyber resilience will be discussed. Cybersecurity must continuously evolved and be proactive. It must be top down and bottom up. The governance of Operational Technology and Information Technology needs to be holistic and seamless to prevent gaps in the environment. Just as important is the situation awareness on the ground and the control mechanism to bring to management attention when things go wrong or are likely to. In the presentation, some of the best practices of Cybersecurity to address the problems will be covered.

  • Storage Networking Security Series: Applied Cryptography Recorded: Aug 5 2020 59 mins
    John Kim, NVIDIA; Eric Hibbard, SNIA Security TWG Chair; Olga Buchonina, SNIA Blockchain TWG Chair; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    The rapid growth in infrastructure to support the real time and continuous collection and sharing of data to make better business decisions has led to an age of unprecedented information access and storage. This proliferation of data sources and of high-density data storage has put volumes of data at one’s fingertips. While the collection of large amounts of data has increased knowledge and efficiencies for businesses, it has also made attacks upon that information—theft, modification, or holding it for ransom--more tempting and easier. Cryptography is often used to protect valuable data.

    This webcast will present an overview of applied cryptography techniques for the most popular use cases. We will discuss ways of securing data, the factors and trade-offs that must be considered, as well as some of the general risks that need to be mitigated, including:

    •Encryption techniques for authenticating users
    •Encrypting data—either at rest or in motion
    •Using hashes to authenticate/ Information coding and data transfer methodologies
    •Cryptography for Blockchain
  • Storage Networking Security Series: Security & Privacy Regulations Recorded: Jul 28 2020 61 mins
    Thomas Rivera, Co-Chair, SNIA Data Protection & Privacy; Eric Hibbard, SNIA Security TWG Chair; J Metz, SNIA Board Chair
    Worldwide, regulations are being promulgated and aggressively enforced with the intention of protecting personal data. These regulatory actions are being taken to help mitigate exploitation of this data by cybercriminals and other opportunistic groups who have turned this into a profitable enterprise. Failure to meet these data protection requirements puts individuals at risk (e.g., identity theft, fraud, etc.), as well as subjecting organizations to significant harm (e.g., legal penalties).

    This webcast highlights common privacy principles and themes within key privacy regulations. In addition, the related cybersecurity implications are explored. Lastly, the session will probe a few of the recent regulations/laws to outline interesting challenges due to over and under-specification of data protection requirements (e.g., “reasonable” security).

    After viewing this webcast, attendees should understand:
    •How privacy and security is characterized
    •Data retention and deletion requirements
    •Core data protection requirements of sample privacy regulations from around the globe
    •The role that security plays with key privacy regulations
    •Data breach implications and consequences
  • PCI Dream Team - PCI Compliance with Non-supported Software & Hardware Recorded: Jul 28 2020 61 mins
    Ben Rothke | David Mundhenk | Jeff Hall | Arthur Cooper "Coop"
    Being left at the payment altar is not easy.

    PCI DSS requirements 6.1 and 6.2 address the need to keep systems up to date with vendor-supplied security patches in order to protect systems from known vulnerabilities. But what do you do if you have an in-scope application and it is no longer supported by the vendor?

    Many payment applications, gateway and software are long past end-of-life, yet still processing cardholder data. Can such a setup be PCI compliant?

    This PCI Dream Team webinar will detail the issue, challenges dealing with unsupported hardware/software, and suggest strategies for compensating controls.

    Our panelists are some of the top PCI QSA’s in the country, with decades of combined PCI and card processing experiences. They’ve seen it all: the good, bad and ugly; and lived to tell the tale.

    Join Ben Rothke, David Mundhenk, Arthur Cooper, and Jeff Hall for an interactive Q&A session, and get answers to your most vexing PCI questions. No PCI question is out of bounds.

  • Your Pen Test Isn't a Pen Test Recorded: Jul 22 2020 49 mins
    Ted Harrington, Executive Partner at Independent Security Evaluators (ISE)
    What is penetration testing anyways?
    It's probably not what you think it is. You're building an application and need to prove it's secure, so you go get some penetration testing. But what are you actually getting?

    In this talk, author Ted Harrington takes you to the front lines of ethical hacking and security research, blending real-world exploit stories with actionable insights in order to help you understand what penetration testing is, what it isn't, how to tell the difference, and determine what you might actually need. You'll learn how hackers break applications, and you'll walk away with practical guidance about how to:
    - Abuse functionality
    - Chain vulnerabilities
    - And much more

  • Breach Prevention, Detection and Response in context of new Privacy Regulation Recorded: Jul 16 2020 37 mins
    Malu Septien Milan, President & Founder, Cryptopon
    Traditional Breach Prevention and Detection are now insufficient capabilities without the organization’s ability to respond to new Privacy Regulations and the everchanging landscape of Cybersecurity Governance. A firm must be ready to respond to a data breach and avoid the penalties.

    While traditional organizations continue to align cybersecurity breach prevention and detection through the lens of cybersecurity frameworks and certifications such as ISO 27001 and NIST 800-53 as examples, the Privacy regulations are forcing firms to pivot how they integrate Data Governance strength to protect themselves from the damages of breaches not only to their firms but to avoid fines and reputational damage that can cost millions of dollars.

    This presentation is a practical Data Breach Readiness pathway to mitigate data breach RISK and FINANCIAL impact to your firm while increasing consumer trust.

    Take aways will include:

    - A practical and proven approach to assess breach response readiness
    - How to start integrating your cyber-defense program with data governance so breach readiness and response can be effective
