A Decade of Denial: Why DDoS Still Exists and What To Do About It

Distributed Denial of Service or DDoS has been around since the late 1990s, but hit in a big way in Feb. 2000 when sustained attacks took down several large Websites including Yahoo and Amazon. Since then, the techniques for DDoS have evolved to leverage different attack motivations as well as to bypass protection measures put in place to stop these attacks. In this panel, industry experts will discuss the history of DDoS and why it is still so prevalent today. Topics will focus on attacker motivation, various threat vectors and new tools being used – and why you need to be updating your mitigation measures at the same pace.

  • Are you ready for the notification requirements of upcoming EU Legislation? Sep 23 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Danielle Kriz, Sr Director, Global Policy at Palo Alto Networks and Aravind Swaminathan Global Co-Chair, Orrick
    Doing business in the European Union is changing. By May 2018, companies must comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) data breach notification requirements and the Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive’s security incident notification requirements.

    Notification requirements make it imperative to prevent incidents before they happen. To help you prepare for these new requirements, Palo Alto Networks is hosting a webinar with cybersecurity and data privacy lawyers from Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe to discuss:

    · What are the requirements and the deadlines under each law?
    · What are the thresholds for notification, and who needs to be notified?
    · How should companies prepare for their oncoming obligations? What strategies should be in place? What have other international companies done to prepare and communicate?
    · What might be the legal consequences of non-compliance?

  • Accelerating Digital Transformation through next generation security Sep 21 2016 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Greg Day, Chief Security Officer EMEA at Palo Alto Network
    Digital Transformation is the primary driver of business innovation for the rest of this decade. But security is in danger of being left behind, as mobile, big data and cloud solutions go mainstream. Security is often seen as the blocker to innovation, so businesses avoid talking to security professionals until it’s too late. A disregard for security exposes the business to risk at a time when data protection compliance regimes are tightening. This session shows how organizations can deploy next generation security approaches to accelerate digital transformation while increasing security and reducing risk.
  • Addressing The Challenges of the EU GDPR 2016 Sep 8 2016 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins

  • Are you having a mare with Ransomware? Sep 7 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Paolo Passeri, Consulting Systems Engineer Security at OpenDNS
    Ransomware has become a common and dramatic problem and the recent waves of attacks are demonstrating that new variants emerge each day in what seems an endless arms race where the attackers seem to prevail.

    However, even if the attack vectors are increasingly complex, the attackers cannot conceal themselves as the infrastructures used to launch these campaigns, despite extremely volatile, exploit elements of the internet, such as IP and domains, that cannot be hidden.

    Monitoring large scale data allows to identify these infrastructures, where attacks are staged, and to enforce a new predictive security model particularly effective against Ransomware.
  • Why visibility is a crucial part of any security strategy Sep 7 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Peter Smith, Regional Sales Manager - Europe & Russell McDermott, Sales Engineer, Netwrix
    With a recent increase in high-profile security breaches and compliance violations, traditional security mechanisms, such as firewalls, IDS, and antivirus are no longer enough to defend against external attackers, and insider threats. By having increased visibility into internal changes, configurations, access events, and permissions across the IT infrastructure, organizations can far more effectively defend against such attacks.

    So, please join our local auditing and compliance team from Netwrix, Pete Smith (Regional Sales Manager Europe) and Russell McDermott (Pre-Sales Engineer) and see how Netwrix Auditor can unlock the door into possible breaches in your IT environment.

    From our brief session you will learn:

    • How deeply security breaches and data leaks are really effecting organizations
    • How to protect your data from the insider threats
    • How to have “peace of mind”, and achieve complete visibility of your IT infrastructure
  • Exploring Russia’s Cyber Operations Sep 7 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Dan McWhorter, Chief Intelligence Strategist at FireEye
    Russia has a long history of utilising cyber actions to accomplish their information operations and national security goals. Organisations in Europe – in the private and public sector – are a top target of Russia-based cyber activity for espionage and crime. This talk will cover how some of Russia’s recent cyber actions were conducted, and it will highlight how well Russia has embraced the opportunities cyber provides when it comes to national security and foreign policy objectives. Dan McWhorter, Chief Intelligence Strategist at FireEye, will also discuss why organisations need to take note of these activities in Russia and steps to ensure your organisation is able to defend against these threats.
  • Data Protection 101: Follow and protect your critical data, wherever it lives Sep 7 2016 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Sunil Choudrie, Global Solutions Marketing Manager
    When it comes to your sensitive data, how can you be sure that it is protected and none of it is leaving your environment?

    Organizations today face the following challenges:
    •Identifying the type of data that needs to be protected
    •Controlling access to data & ensuring identities aren’t exposed, especially in the face of significant regulatory fines
    •Prevent sensitive data from leaving the organization, mega-breaches & data loss is increasing year on year. Over half a billion personal records were stolen or lost in 2015, spear phishing campaigns targeting company employees increased by 55% in 2015

    Answer: Firstly allow the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands. Secondly Easily apply policies to control access and usage―in the cloud, on mobile devices, or on the network.

  • Social Engineering - Are you the weakest link? Recorded: Aug 30 2016 57 mins
    Greg Iddon, Technologist, Sophos
    Social Engineering has been around for as long as the crooks have but in a modern online world, running a con game has never been easier. And that’s why we need to be savvy.

    A social engineer can research you on Facebook and LinkedIn; read up about your company on its website; and then target you via email, instant messaging, online surveys…and even by phone, for that personal touch. Worse still, many of the aspects of a so-called “targeted attack” like this can be automated, and repeated on colleague after colleague until someone crumbles.

    Greg Iddon will take you into the murky world of targeted attacks, and show you how to build defences that will prevent one well-meaning employee from giving away the keys to the castle.

  • Beyond the Sticker Price: Factors Impacting the Total Cost of Ownership of SIEM Recorded: Aug 24 2016 36 mins
    Michael Suby, Vice President of Research at Frost & Sullivan
    Unfortunately many organizations today are losing the race against the hacker community by a large margin. As noted in the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, the percent of compromises that transpired in “days or less” has risen from 67% to 84% over the last 10 years. Over this same time period, the percent of compromise discoveries that occurred in “days or less” also improved, but not enough to narrow the time gap between compromise and discovery. In other words, the bad guys are accelerating their exploits faster than the good guys are accelerating their ability to discover.

    The path to narrowing the time gap between compromise and discovery, and then neutralising business-impacting incidents, is through a comprehensive and mission-oriented Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). A well-designed SIEM not only advances security objectives, but it also works to direct personnel and process for maximum impact. With limited resources and a rising number of attacks, not all solutions are created equal. You need to ensure they are getting the best bang for your buck.

    In this webinar, Michael Suby, vice president of research at the global research and consulting organization Frost & Sullivan, will discuss the factors that contribute to SIEM’s total cost of ownership.

    You’ll learn:

    • How to calculate the total cost of ownership of a SIEM
    • The basic functionality that every SIEM should have to confidently breeze through preliminary activities
    • The SIEM attributes that will have a lasting impact on your organization’s cost efficiency in effectively managing risk

    Join us to learn the features that should be on the top of your scorecard when evaluating a SIEM for either first-time deployment or replacement.
  • The Security Risks of Orphaned Network Traffic Recorded: Aug 10 2016 47 mins
    João Gouveia, CTO, AnubisNetworks
    As part of our research work focused on identifying automated network traffic that we can relate with malicious behavior and botnet communications, we often come across with traffic not necessarily related to malicious intent, but that represents a high risk for the companies allowing it to occur on their networks.

    Often associated with abandoned ware, policy control failures, or miss configurations, these traffic patterns end up exposing company information and assets to multiple risk levels.

    On this webinar, we are going to explore this byproduct of our botnet research, how widespread this problem is, how we can use this to relay risk information to companies, and the several degrees of exposure and impact that this type of traffic can represent.
