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

Behind the Syrian Conflict's Digital Front Lines

FireEye recently released a new report “Behind the Syrian Conflict’s Digital Frontlines” that documents a well-executed hacking operation that successfully breached the Syrian opposition.

Between at least November 2013 and January 2014, the hackers stole a cache of critical documents and Skype conversations revealing the Syrian opposition’s strategy, tactical battle plans, supply needs, and troves of personal information and chat sessions. This data belonged to the men fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces as well as media activists, humanitarian aid workers, and others within the opposition located in Syria, the region and beyond.

We have only limited indications about the origins of this threat activity. Our research revealed multiple references to Lebanon both in the course of examining the malware and in the avatar’s social media use. While we do not know who conducted this hacking operation, if this data was acquired by Assad’s forces or their allies it could confer a distinct battlefield advantage.

Join us for a roundtable discussion with subject matter experts where we’ll talk about the details of the report and explore surrounding topics, to include:

• An overview of the conflict in Syria and why cyber-espionage is an increasingly important factor
• An in-depth analysis of a critical breach of the Syrian opposition including an overview of the tools and techniques used by the threat actors

All webinar attendees will receive a free copy of the new Syrian report. Register today!

  • APT37: The Overlooked North Korean Threat Feb 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ben Read, Senior Manager Cyber Espionage, FireEye
    Repeated high-profile breaches, disruptive attacks and global crime with indicators of sponsorship by North Korea demonstrate an increasing threat and underscore the necessity of tracking the activity of their hackers.

    APT37 is less well-recognized than other threat actors sponsored by North Korea, but their increasing global activity and recent use of a zero-day exploit can no longer be ignored by network defenders.

    FireEye has tracked APT37 since 2015 as TEMP.Reaper and shared details on its activities with our intelligence customers. Over time we have come to better understand APT37. On Thursday, February 28, join Ben Read, Senior Manager, Cyber Espionage at FireEye for our unique insights into APT37:

    • A history of APT37 support for North Korean interests

  • Cyber Defense Lessons Learned in 2017 for a More Secure 2018 Recorded: Nov 14 2017 58 mins
    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.

  • Why Mid-Enterprises Must Go Beyond AV Products to Smarter Endpoint Security Recorded: Nov 1 2017 41 mins
    Dan Reis, FireEye Director of Product Marketing, Endpoint Security
    High-profile data breaches of corporate giants make the headlines, but 77% of cyber-crime targets small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs). Experts predict this trend will only continue to rise.  Regardless of limited budgets and resources, you need to stay one step ahead of advanced attacks.
    FireEye Endpoint Security offers such a solution for the mid-enterprise. It combines investigation, threat intelligence and antivirus and anti-spam technologies in a single, affordable lightweight agent. 

    Join us on November 1st to learn more about:
    • What legacy AV technologies miss and how you might be at risk today
    • Why real-time, integrated threat intelligence is a critical component of any cyber strategy
    • How to streamline your approach and extend visibility into every endpoint that matters
    • Why you need to detect known and unknown threats targeting your business
  • Bridging the Gap Between the SOC and the Boardroom Recorded: Oct 26 2017 32 mins
    Freud Alexandre, Enterprise Architect Security & Manager – City of New Orleans
    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!

  • How Was that Breach Detected? Recorded: Oct 26 2017 57 mins
    Jeff Hamm, Technical Director, Mandiant
    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.
  • Intelligence-First: How Intelligence Enriches Security Consulting Services Recorded: Oct 25 2017 62 mins
    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.

    Key takeaways:

    • The role cyber threat intelligence plays in strategic security consulting services
    • Why services rooted in compliance-based best practices and industry standards aren’t effective
    • Case studies where different types of intelligence added value to service portfolio
  • GDPR – Being Prepared and Response-Ready Recorded: Oct 25 2017 54 mins
    Stuart McKenzie, Vice President, Mandiant Consulting & Dan Wire, Sr. Director, Marketing Communications
    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.
  • Partner Session: A Gold Standard for Industrial Control System Security Recorded: Oct 25 2017 57 mins
    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 Recorded: Oct 24 2017 53 mins
    Gareth Maclachlan, Vice President, Product and Market Strategy, Global Services and Intelligence
    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
  • Answers to 5 Cyber Security Challenges for the Midsize Enterprise Recorded: Oct 18 2017 52 mins
    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.

    FireEye SME customers are more prepared to defend their company’s digital assets. Join us for a live problem-solving webinar based on real-world examples from your peers and learn:

    •What best practices will increase cyber awareness
    •How to conduct a security assessment to identify gaps and a
