Protecting Government Assets in an Era of Cyber Warfare
FireEye recently released a new report that documents how and why governments around the world are turning to the cyber domain as a cost-effective way to spy on other countries, steal technology, and even wage war.
Whether it’s sensitive military, diplomatic, or economic information, governments depend on the integrity of their data. If that data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe.
In the wake of two apparent state- and government-sponsored attacks, APT1 and APT28, government agencies must understand why they are in attackers’ crosshairs, what attackers might be seeking, and how they can protect themselves.
Join us for a dynamic discussion with subject matter experts where you will learn:
•What makes your government-related organization an appealing target – whether you’re a political opponent, business, agency or vendor
•Why it’s important to determine who could be planning an attack, their motives, and how they might carry out their goals
•How to assess your level of preparedness and how to protect yourself if you are not ready for this new era of cyber warfare

Today’s endpoint security products do what they were designed to do, but they still leave gaps in protection. Comprehensive endpoint protection requires prevention, AV, endpoint detection and response (EDR) and other capabilities. Even when organizations adopt multiple point products, there are still gaps in their endpoint protection.
Some companies tout “next-generation endpoint security,” but what does that mean? Jim Waggoner, Sr. Director of Endpoint Product Management at FireEye will tell you how to make sure your next-generation endpoint security solution is delivering a comprehensive. In this webinar, you will:
> Learn about the current endpoint security landscape and the challenges it poses
> Find out what makes EDR capabilities valuable
> Understand why threat intelligence is important and how it affects endpoint threat detection and prevention
> Discover why a single endpoint agent should include (1) Multiple detection and prevention engines, (2) Integrated workflows from detection to investigation to remediation, and (3) Scalable, multiple form factors and breadth of OS support

Cyber truths and CEOs
Security industry experts say that the nature and complexity of today’s cyberattacks are beyond the scope of even the largest companies. We’ve seen the headline making news. Big brand companies once thought to be impenetrable, have fallen victim to targeted cyberattacks inflicting significant financial damages to their businesses.
Financial fall out and executive reputation
Such breaches are hitting corporations where it hurts the most: the bottom line. A prominent bank recently felt the staggering loss of $81 million resulting from a breach.
Elevate and propagate
Battling hackers, state actors, and sophisticated cybercrime organizations may seem like a never-ending, daunting task.
Please join us as FireEye and HPE Chief Technology Officers reveal a five-point tactical plan to mitigate risk and keep your reputation intact.
What you’ll learn:
1.Creating a Risk Profile to assess your organization’s risk level.
2.CEO engagement. Understanding the amount of time, resources and commitment needed to minimize threat exposure.
3.Roles and investment. Guidelines for technology, personnel, and budget.
4.Risks and ramifications. Pinpoint the gaps.
5.Seek the advice of experts. Don’t stake your reputation by going it alone.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is the standard for protecting sensitive systems and credentials. What once was limited to physical tokens and keycodes has expanded into digital tokens, phone applications, and password vaults, all in the effort to offer additional safeguards for critical access points like VPN connectivity and system administrator accounts.
While MFA is now an industry-standard security practice, monitoring and protecting these implementations from exploitation is not widely practiced.
Gathered from the trenches of both our Incident Responders and Red Teamers, here is a quick introduction to the problems faced with common MFA systems, the ways real-world attackers (e.g. APT28 & ATP29) and our Red Team have bypassed or subverted them, and some techniques your team can use to further protect the multi-factor keys to your kingdom.

In a rapidly evolving threat landscape with the realities of limited security program resources, it can be difficult for organizations to know what the most critical risks and exposures are, presently and looking forward. While most organizations recognize the importance of cyber threat intelligence (CTI), Mandiant consulting frequently finds organizations have limited capabilities to operationalize CTI throughout all aspects of their security program.
A recent online poll conducted by FireEye about the operational use of CTI found that 84% of responders use threat intelligence for business decision-making. 67% use it to make decisions about resources and security tools while 17% said they use it for risk assessment on new business initiatives. 17% don’t use it at all.
In this webinar, Jeff Berg, Senior Manager of Mandiant’s Cyber Threat Intelligence Services, discusses the role of intelligence in cyber security programs and steps organizations can take to transform security operations to be intelligence-led, so they can continuously adapt to the threat landscape, and ultimately infuse intelligence capabilities across the entire organization for informed decision making.
Modern cyber attackers are sophisticated, well-funded, well-organized and use highly-targeted techniques that leave technology-only security strategies exposed. To identify and stop attackers, organizations need to understand how they think, how they work, and what they want. Why? Because today, the most serious data breaches and disruptions result from well-planned, complex attacks that target specific companies or industries. Bolster your defenses with a proactive, forward-looking approach to security. Join our live webcast, Tuesday, November 15 at 2:00pm ET to learn:
-What cyber threat intelligence truly is and the benefits of being intelligence-led.
-How to tailor threat intelligence to your unique security mission.
-How FireEye iSIGHT’s 160 security experts around the globe mobilize to transform raw information into finished actionable intelligence.

Advanced threats continue to grow in severity, complexity and reach as threat actors expand their attacks to hit soft targets. Adding to this, as business workloads move to the cloud, and as shadow IT continues to proliferate, unforeseen security gaps expose new vectors for exploit and abuse.
Attacks are not just targeting the core of a network, nor are they limited to just large scale enterprises. More and more, threat actors are aiming at vulnerable endpoints, distributed network environments and porous perimeter defenses. To combat this, security solutions need to be as agile as today’s threat actors.
In this webinar, we will discuss the changing threat landscape and how today’s threat actors and advanced malware are impacting businesses of all sizes and types. Additionally, we will examine new security solutions and deployment models that provide agility, flexibility and widespread protective reach that scales and grows with IT and security needs.
Tim Appleby, Sr. Manager, Security Program Assessments, Mandiant Consulting.
Cybersecurity awareness is growing as more organizations learn they are vulnerable to an attack. While compliance with regulatory and security audit requirements provides a starting point, it alone will not keep the organization safe. An effective security program needs to be multifaceted, integrating people, processes and technologies across all layers of the organization. The specifics vary due to industry, size and geographic presence, as well the level of risk the organization is willing to accept.
Mandiant Sr. Manager Tim Appleby will discuss the benefits of proactive preparedness and 10 key areas that should be considered in order to form a holistic security program, and discuss how priorities can vary based on industry, size and geography.

Are you prepared?
It’s headline news. Cyber attackers are increasingly more sophisticated and data breaches are becoming common place. Some say “it’s not a question of if you’ll be breached, but when”. You need a plan.
Even the most security-conscious organizations are not prepared for the necessary actions needed to gain control after a cyberattack. Preparing an emergency response communication plan keeps stakeholders informed following a breach. Taking an early communication approach will combat rumor and conjecture. The breach is now a business problem. From employees and customers to partner and suppliers – people need to be confident the situation is being addressed, managed, and resolved.
Communication is key.
Smart organizations view their security crisis-communication plan as an ongoing necessity. Get ahead of the reactive situation and decrease the uncertainty. Involve the company’s top leaders across the cross-functional organization. Create a framework for answering questions honestly and with integrity. Share information up front and often. Frequent detailed communication couple with action timelines creates confidence.
Get operational in real time.
You can’t control the communication cycle without having done some work in advance. A well-developed crisis response plan with different scenarios will train your team to operate in real time when the inevitable occurs. You can take control of the situation with timely communications.
Be prepared. Join us for our upcoming webinar to learn how to build a strong crisis-communication foundation for your organization.
The security paradigm for nearly two decades has been to increasingly invest in technology. These solutions have not only failed to solve the problem but have made the challenge more complex. Even if true threats are detected, they are lost in a sea of alerts and lack the context to prioritize and build response. This security posture is only exacerbated by the skills deficit currently facing the industry.
In this webinar, we look at the emergence of a new security-as-a-service paradigm and the capabilities required to help organizations reduce risk and time to protection. The discussion will cover how the cost, specialization and complexity of cyber defense have positioned security to follow other markets in adopting an “as-a-service” paradigm.
We will also address the capabilities that define an ideal security-as-a-service partner such as:
•the availability of security expertise
•a broad intelligence capability and
•flexible deployment options
Not only does this approach improve a security posture and reduce risk but it does so with a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Register today to learn more about this emerging security-as-a-service model.

As cyberattacks become more frequent, more sophisticated, and more costly, businesses are increasingly turning to cyber insurance to transfer some of the risk. In turn, insurance underwriters are challenged by the complexity of assessing cyber risk, and need a simple yet objective methodology to assist in decision making.
In response to this, Chubb has developed a new model for cyber underwriting, Cyber COPETM. Intended to simplify and improve the assessment of both cyber and privacy risks, this methodology is based on COPE, a time-tested underwriting model that has been used by property underwriters to analyze risk for nearly 300 years.
Mandiant Consulting has teamed with Chubb to create a Cyber Risk Insurance Assessment Process that aligns with the new Cyber COPETM methodology to allow a more effective evaluation of an insured’s cyber and privacy risk.
In this webinar, experts from Mandiant Consulting and Chubb will discuss the Cyber COPETM methodology, Mandiant's new CIRA service, and how organizations can use both to better understand their cyber and privacy risks.

Beginning in January 2016, Mandiant identified a financially-motivated threat actor that launched several tailored, spear-phishing campaigns—targeting industries that process large volumes of consumer credit cards such as retail, restaurant, and hospitality. To date, Mandiant has seen this group at over 150 organizations. This group is interesting due to the large number of organizations they quickly targeted, how quickly they shift tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs), and their unusual persistence in attempting to re-compromise an organization after remediation.
During this conversation, we will walk through examples from several Mandiant investigations of this groups activity. We will take a technical look at this threat actor's TTPs as well as talk about what to look for to determine if they are active in your environment.

Medical devices (biomed) introduce many cybersecurity challenges into healthcare delivery organizations, but what can you do? Connecting medical devices to your network and in turn to your physicians and EMR system increases clinical workflow while opening security holes. Much is out of your control. Device manufacturers control patch cycles and vulnerabilities persist so you segment your network which introduces administration overhead and increases the possibility of breaches due to misconfigurations. As you try harder to improve efficiency, is your environment becoming less secure due to improved connectivity? And what about patient safety when medical devices are connected directly to patients?
Join Dan McWhorter, Chief Intelligence Strategist at FireEye, and John Klassen, Sr Director Solutions Marketing, on this webinar to learn:
•The impact on Healthcare cybersecurity from complex medical device ecosystems
•What kind of attacks connected medical devices are vulnerable to
•Strategies and tools to lower your risk from compromised devices

Devon Kerr, Incident Response Manager, Professional Services, Mandiant
Intrusion investigations are a response to the detection of a threat in the environment. Organizations are investing heavily in technology, training, and personnel who can quickly detect and respond to threats after they’ve gained some amount of access to their environments. It’s this process that leads to containment and gives businesses back control.
Companies are getting better at detecting threats as a result, but actors may still have been in the environment for several months before that critical moment when tools and personnel finally detect the bump in the night and the investigative process can begin.
During this conversation, we’ll look at the security ecosystem and some of the reasons why technologies that react to threat activity may not be adequate in this golden age of cyber threats. We’ll also discuss a few of the most important skillsets necessary to cultivate and why personnel and expertise are your secret weapons. Lastly, we’ll suggest some of the most effective sources of evidence to examine as well as some of the analysis techniques you should be using to filter through the noise.
