"It’s no longer a case of ‘if you will be breached’, but instead how you’ll respond to and remediate the situation ‘once you are breached." – Kevin Mandia, CEO, FireEye
The FireEye 2017 M-Trends report indicates the average global dwell time of an attacker within a targeted environment is 99 days. This gives adversaries over three months to roam your network and steal sensitive data—before a breach is even detected.
Cyber security and incident response (IR) readiness is an evolving responsibility that has become a strategic priority for enterprises worldwide.
Given today’s cyber landscape, all C-suite leaders have an important role to play in their organization’s cyber security posture and IR plan. Their individual and departmental contributions must help protect vital assets, safeguard privacy and ensure uninterrupted operations.
Join the conversation as Troy Scavella, Principal Consultant of Mandiant, a FireEye company, talk to executives about:
• The current state of C-suite IR involvement, and how and why their status is evolving
• A best practice phased approach of executive contributions to be made before, during and after a breach
• Actionable tips for executives to apply and enforce across each phase of the IR process
• Protection of critical assets with IR preparation and improvement

Jeff Groman, Mandiant Senior Manager & Chris Porter, Chief Intelligence Strategist
Cyber security attackers become more innovative each year with threat activities progressing on a global scale. Coverage of cyber attacks by major media outlets continues to rise year after year, and 2017 seems to have done nothing to buck that trend.
In the last 12 months, we’ve seen reports of compromises at government entities, cable companies, automobile manufacturers, law firms, insurers, delivery companies, and more. Looking back at these headlines leaves us asking two questions above all: What didn’t work in cyber defense in 2017 and what can be done to be better prepared for future attacks?
We will address those questions and many others during our webinar, “Cyber Defense Lessons Learned in 2017 for a More Secure 2018,” presented by Jeff Groman, Mandiant Senior Manager and Chris Porter, Chief Intelligence Strategist. Tune in to learn about:
• The more disruptive opportunistic attacks in 2017
• More advanced and increasingly frequent attacks being carried out by nation-states
It wouldn’t be a proper discussion if we didn’t also cover the lessons learned from these successful attacks so that organizations will be better prepared in the future.

To properly establish your cyber defenses, you must know your opponent.
Cyber attackers are constantly innovating; their threat activities continue to grow on a global scale. Regimes use advanced cyber capabilities to harass their foes, boost their finances and even subvert democracy.
Cyber crime that affects businesses can be directly connected to geopolitical drivers such as the nuclear deal with Iran and sanctions for North Korean proliferation. Your organization needs to ensure that it adapts to the realities of the evolving threat landscape and business risks.
Attend this webinar to see John Hultquist, Director of Intelligence Analysis at FireEye, offer:
• An overview of emerging threats from around the world
• Insights into the most impactful threats affecting your cyber security operations
• Expert assessments and implications your organization should consider, provided by the FireEye Threat Intelligence Team

Bridging the Gap Between the SOC and the Boardroom: How to talk in a language your Chief Executive can understand.
Most C-Suite occupants don’t speak security: Real-world examples will be used to demonstrate how to communicate in a manner that even the most technology averse executive can understand.
Use of a common vocabulary helps executives fully comprehend the impact of risk, and the correlation between investment and risk mitigation (and to understand the implications of underfunding a security program).
By paying close attention to the details, there are frequently key warning signs and patterns that can identified prior to a breach occurring – By addressing common disconnects, this presentation offers a guide to help bridge the gap between the SOC and the boardroom.
Cyber threats continue to escalate in volume and sophistication – being able to eloquently articulate the risks and the necessary mitigation strategy is a critical skill for every security professional.
The signs are all there but if you can’t deliver the message you might as well leave the front door open!
Antivirus (AV) protection has been the foundation for endpoint security for decades despite its known gaps. To address evolving threats, organizations need an integrated endpoint solution that can fortify their defenses.
Join Jim Waggoner, Sr. Director, Product Management for FireEye, as he details:
•Why endpoint security products have not provided complete protection
•Capabilities required for a comprehensive endpoint protection solution
oAV with threat intelligence
oDetection and response
oBehavior and exploit analysis
oVisibility and automation
•How the latest FireEye Endpoint Security solution enables you to go from detection to investigation and remediation quickly, all with a single agent
Attend this webinar as the first step toward a smarter, more adaptive approach to endpoint security.
Mandiant has done thousands of IR investigations across multiple industry types and networks. In each case, the customer was either altered by a third party about the breach or discovered something “not quite right” in the network. In several cases the alerts the customer discovered led to discovery of a targeted attacker in the environment - and a subsequent incident response investigation.
In this presentation, we will use international case examples Mandiant investigated to take a closer look at how the breach was discovered and what security lessons can be learned from the alerts - for example how a performance monitor on a domain controller spiked, which led to discovery of credential harvesting. The take away will be actionable in many environments.
Jeff Berg, Sr. Manager, Cyber Threat Intelligence & Brad Bell, Mandiant Principal Consultant
Join Jeff Berg, Sr. Manager of Cyber Threat Intelligence, and Brad Bell, Mandiant Principal Consultant, as they share the role of cyber threat intelligence in strategic security consulting services and why services based on compliance-based best practices and industry standards may not be an effective way to protect your organization against a rapidly evolving threat landscape.

The new European Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires businesses to report data breaches within 72 hours – how will you manage the process?
This regulation applies to all organizations with employees and/or customers in the European Union.
In a crisis, being organized and informed enough to provide an accurate notification to affected customers (or indeed regulators) is a difficult task on its own. When combined with a mandatory incident response processes – identifying the cause, containing and remediating the vulnerability, and determining the extent of the damage, it makes the situation a lot more difficult and time sensitive.
In this webinar we will tackle the importance of having an effective and actionable incident response plan, and how to develop a crisis communications strategy that minimizes the impact of a data breach.
Andrew Ginter, Vice President, Industrial Security, Waterfall Security Solutions & Gary Fisk, Solutions Architect, FireEye
The first generation of Industrial Control System (ICS) cyber security advice looked to IT security best practices as their "gold standard," even though parts of IT security best practices were acknowledged as poor fits for the needs of ICS networks. The most recent ICS security standards and advice embrace the differences between IT and ICS networks, and document a gold standard for ICS cyber security that differs from IT best practices in important ways. This presentation reviews the evolution of ICS security best practices and explores how the new FireEye and Waterfall Security Solutions partnership is supporting and extending this evolution.

Evaluating Managed Detection and Response Vendors: Key Considerations that Cut Through the Hype
You’re fighting an asymmetric battle. You’ve invested millions in protection technologies but unknown attackers still find a way in. SIEMs and MSSPs provide event monitoring - but in 85% of incident response engagements conducted by Mandiant consultants last year, the client had an existing MSSP or SIEM.
A new class of managed detection and response services (MDR) has emerged to help organizations improve their threat detection and incident response capabilities. However, solution providers offer varied approaches and capabilities making it challenging for security leaders to understand and compare offerings.
In this webinar, you will learn:
•Why standard cyber security solutions still leave you vulnerable and why the market is transitioning to MDR
•Which capabilities are critical to improving threat detection and response
•What to consider when evaluating managed detection and response service providers
Dan Reis, FireEye Director of Product Marketing, Endpoint Security
Large corporations aren’t the only targets for sophisticated advanced attacks. In fact, cyber criminals find that small and midsize enterprise (SME) companies are easier targets because their security is not as advanced and they don’t have proper cyber defenses.
