Cloud Security for Government: A Conversation with the CyberWire and FireEye

Cloud usage in the public sector has evolved significantly, and so has its security. Still, federal agencies continue to face many new challenges, such as lack of continuous visibility, inability to detect misconfigurations and credential misuse, lack of detection capabilities for cloud-hosted artifacts and confusion around the shared responsibility model.

On May 28 at 1:00 PM ET, the CyberWire and FireEye subject matter experts will discuss how government IT managers can overcome these challenges and pave the way for a successful path forward. Our conversation will cover not only the state of cloud for government use, but also how to:

- Gain greater visibility across hybrid, public, private, and multi-cloud environments
- Achieve cloud compliance, enforcement, and control
- Manage and mitigate risks in the cloud, from a CISO’s perspective
- Secure the remote workforce

  • How Continuous Validation Helps Protect the Supply Chain Recorded: May 1 2021 59 mins
    Matt Shelton, Director, Technology Risk and Threat Intelligence, FireEye
    The Expanding Attack Surface: How Continuous Validation Helps Protect the Supply Chain

    Organizations are increasingly using third party providers to manage critical components of their infrastructure. The introduction of cloud services, managed service providers, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has increased the size of an organization’s attack surface. A breach of proprietary and confidential information is just as impactful coming from the supply chain as it is from an organization’s infrastructure. Join Matt Shelton, Director, Technology Risk and Threat Intelligence, as he explains how intelligence-led validation can help tighten controls and reduce risk. In this webinar:

    -Hear about the realities of today’s threat landscape, sophisticated attackers and the implications on managing your security stack and processes
    -Learn how threat intelligence helps you take decisive action
    -Find out how continuous validation helps you understand the true measure of your security
    -Get insights into an actual use case where a company’s supply chain was breached to see how intelligence-led validation could have helped prevent it

  • On the Defensive: Shaping Your Cyber Strategy in the Wake of UNC2452 Recorded: Apr 24 2021 43 mins
    Bader Azzouqa, Senior Consultant, FireEye Mandiant
    On December 13, 2020, FireEye discovered a global intrusion campaign performed by a highly evasive attacker leveraging the SolarWinds supply chain to compromise multiple global victims. The campaign, which may have begun as early as Spring 2020, is the work of highly skilled and likely nation-backed actors and was conducted with significant operational security. FireEye is continuing to track the threat actors behind this campaign and has labeled them UNC2452.

    In this session, you will learn first-hand:
    ● What FireEye Mandiant knows and continues to uncover about these threat actors
    ● Multiple techniques the actors are using to achieve their mission while obscuring their activities to evade detection
    ● Insights into detection and defensive strategies that organizations should deploy in the aftermath of UNC2452

  • Improve Program Effectiveness through Security Transformation Recorded: Apr 24 2021 20 mins
    Nicholas Bennett, Managing Director, Mandiant Consulting; John M. DeLozier, Sr. Technical Director, Mandiant Consulting
    With the chance of an attacker affecting more organizations today—notably around ransomware progression and the shift to remote work—your security function is continually challenged to keep pace with incident prevention, detection and response.

    Transformation timelines often occur in two ways: proactive action to mitigate future threats, or reactive measures to remediate an existing incident—the latter can be detrimental. It’s imperative for security teams to develop and mature their security posture through capability improvement across four key areas: security architecture, cyber defense, governance and risk management.

    In this session, you'll learn how Mandiant helps organizations conduct transformational changes of critical security functions and staff readiness through hands-on support across these critical areas. We’ll also share a roadmap of our new transformation services on the horizon.

  • Closing the Backdoor: Reverse Engineering SUNBURST Recorded: Apr 15 2021 61 mins
    Mandiant FLARE Experts
    At the end of 2020, FireEye revealed the details of a sophisticated threat actor that took advantage of SolarWinds’ Orion Platform to orchestrate a wide-scale supply chain attack and deploy a backdoor we call SUNBURST.

    This attack impacted organizations worldwide, leading executives everywhere to question whether their environment fell victim. Discovering, sharing, and shutting down access to the SUNBURST backdoor, which allowed attackers to move freely and spy on victims, required the unique expertise of Mandiant’s Frontline Applied Research and Expertise (FLARE) team. And for Mandiant Managed Defense, the identification of victims started well before the public became aware of the SUNBURST campaign.

    Join Mandiant experts for a retelling of the SUNBURST discovery story and a look inside how they addressed the SUNBURST threat with customers, including stories from the front lines of this customer-focused response. Our experts will also highlight:

    • How this prolific cyber-attack changes the way we view security
    • SUNBURST threat actor TTPs and how Mandiant hunts for the most relevant, and dangerous threats
    • What threat hunting techniques should be deployed to find today’s stealthiest attackers

    Colby M. DeRodeff, Chief Technology Officer, Mandiant Advantage; Rob Potter, VP of Validation Customer Success, Mandiant
    Intelligence-Led Security Validation: A Strategy to Prove & Communicate Competency

    Today we are seeing some of the most aggressive and sophisticated adversary attacks ever recorded. To ensure the health of your organization’s security infrastructure, it’s vital to validate the efficacy of security defenses with the use of authentic and relevant content based on active threat intelligence. Intelligence-led security validation enables you to quantify your risk, prioritize resources and prove competency. The result is the ability to strengthen and maintain your cyber stance against today’s evolving and aggressive adversary landscape.

    In this session, you will:

    ● Learn that testing or validation technology is not enough—The steps required for an effective security validation strategy include the use of authentic and active threat intelligence, and why the emulation of real attacks, rather than attack simulation, is critical
    ● Gain insights into how threat intelligence informs security validation efforts by identifying the threat actors that are most likely targeting your organization
    ● Understand how continuous validation can prove security effectiveness and operational competency—Ultimately, assuring security infrastructure health, identifying areas for optimization, and reducing risk exposure.
