It’s no surprise that cyber security is the #1 concern for federal information executives in 2012. Cyber-attacks on the federal government have increased 680% in the last 6 years. The threat posed by increasing cyber-attacks is only heightened by vulnerabilities in federal systems supporting critical infrastructure.
To counter cyber incidents such as nation-state sponsored espionage, data breaches and advanced persistent threats (APTs), government agencies must fill the hole left by next-generation firewalls, IPS, antivirus, and Web gateways. These rules and signature-based tools are no match for well-funded adversaries employing a new generation of dynamic, stealthy threats. To strengthen the security and resilience of federal government systems, agencies must adopt tools and techniques to protect them from the next generation of attacks.
Hear from two cyber security experts, Robert Bigman, former Chief Information Security Officer, Central Intelligence Agency, and Alex Lanstein, Senior Security Researcher, FireEye, as they share their views on the new evolving threat landscape and how budget-constrained agencies can detect, protect and respond to advanced targeted attacks.
In this session, participants will learn about:
• Techniques and tactics that make next-generation cyber criminals successful
• A new hacker alliance model and some concerning technical trends
• Why conventional security defenses are no longer effective
• Key criteria when investigating next-generation threat protection

Ron Bushar, Managing Director, Mandiant (a FireEye company)
Over the last decade, cyber security has evolved from a niche concern confined to IT professionals to a major priority for CEOs and boards of directors. Company leaders are now charged with managing cyber risk with the same urgency that they have managed traditional business risk.
The emergence of cyber risk as a centerpiece of risk management is being fueled by new and increasingly complex threats. Organizations must deal with a quickly evolving set of threats to their information systems and data. Many of these threats were unimaginable just a few years ago.
In this discussion, we explain the different forms of cyber risk and show how the threat level has risen in recent years. We also provide a basic framework for managing cyber risk, and finally, we pose five key questions business leaders should ask themselves to ensure their security posture is sufficiently robust and resilient to meet evolving threats.
Register for this webinar today. As usual, we’ll leave time for Q&A.
Adam Bosnian, EVP, Global Business Dev, CyberArk, Milan Gavran, TAP Sales Mgr, FireEye
Mandiant Consulting’s 2016 M-Trends report once again shows that cyber attacks follow a regular pattern of crashing through perimeter defenses, obtaining a credential and then using the acquired access to move laterally throughout the network and escalate privileges to complete their primary objective. Once attackers obtain privileged credentials, they can slowly gain control of the entire organization’s IT environment.
This session will focus on how attackers find their way to the heart of enterprises, the role privileged credentials (passwords and SSH keys) play in an active cyber attack, and how the integration of CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution and the FireEye Threat Analytics Platform (TAP) can help organizations detect, alert and rapidly respond to cyber attacks.
The audience will be walked through a few data breach examples and shown how combining intel from both systems is used to assist in detection and response acceleration. Attendees can expect to gain an advanced understanding of how they can start leveraging their enterprise-wide data and privileged threat analytics to quickly identify and disrupt the most critical in-progress attacks.
It doesn’t matter what industry vertical you are in or how big or small your business is, we are all plagued by the same concern, the security of your most valuable asset – your data. Moreover, the threat is sometimes the ones that you trust most, namely people that have access to your privileged information and data. This insider threat can be your customers, partners and even your employees that accidentally or purposefully release or acquire sensitive data and use it for something other than what it was meant for.
Just imagine if you had a complete and panoramic scene sizeup along with the ability to proactively address potential threats of both the traditional threat vector of outsiders gaining information as well as the increasingly common and dangerous internal threat. Join us as we discuss this important topic as well as how you can ensure that your organization does not find itself in the eye of the security cyberstorm..

Dan Scali, Sr. Mgr., ICS Security (Mandiant), Sean McBride, Critical Infrastructure Lead (iSIGHT)
In the first publicly documented power outage attributed to a cyber attack, the Russian-nexus Sandworm Team caused blackouts in several regions of Ukraine. iSIGHT Partners has tracked this group since October 2014, documenting its targets, tools, attack infrastructure and motivations. In August 2015 we noted Sandworm had infiltrated Ukrainian electricity providers; and, in November we warned that Ukraine was a hot spot for ICS-related activity.
In this Webinar, Sean McBride, Critical Infrastructure Lead Analyst, and Dan Scali, Senior Manager of Mandiant’s ICS Security Consulting Practice, will tell you what happened to the victim utilities and what could have been done to prevent it.
Asad Baheri, Product Sales Specialist, Mobile Threat Prevention
Mobile devices are ubiquitous in today's society. The number and types of devices used by physicians, nurses, clinicians, specialists, administrators, and staff – as well as patients and visitors – are growing at healthcare organizations across the country. Providing anywhere/anytime network access is essential, particularly when instant communication is required to ensure quality patient care. But the mobile devices are launched daily with upgraded versions of operating systems that are ripe for infection.
FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention identifies and stops mobile threats. Rather than relying on signatures, which are powerless against today’s constantly changing threats, FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention executes applications within the FireEye MVX engine to protect mobile devices against compromise.
During this webcast, we will discuss the benefits of a mobile security strategy and identify how FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention (MTP):
- Offers real-time visibility of threats on mobile devices
- Displays play-by-play analysis of suspicious applications
- Provides an index of pre-analyzed applications
- Generates threat assessments for custom applications.
Join our webcast today to hear about the latest developments in mobile threats for healthcare.
Alec Randazzo, Sr. Incident Response Consultant, DJ Palombo, Consultant, Mandiant
Email is an essential tool of today’s business. In 2012, firms sent and received an estimated 89 billion emails every day. Email has also become a vector for cyber crime; phishing emails—with and without correct spelling—account for a significant portion of today’s attacks.
What happens when a targeted victim falls for a phish email and the attacker gains access to a network? Alec Randazzo and DJ Palombo from the Mandiant incident response team will examine an attacker’s step-by-step process, using real world examples. Recommendations will be provided on how to limit an attacker’s success within a network.
Join us for this webinar to gain critical insights from our experts in the field.
Ben Withnell, Incident Analyst, FireEye as a Service
Triage and remediation of attacks utilizing zero-day vulnerabilities requires technology, intelligence, and expertise that is often beyond the capabilities of most security teams today. With Clandestine Wolf, the name our security team gave to a recent zero-day campaign exploiting an Adobe Flash vulnerability, our analysts were able to validate the alert and begin response within minutes after first observing the attack.
In this webinar Ben Withnell, a FireEye as a Service (FAAS) incident analyst, will discuss how the Clandestine Wolf campaign was discovered, triaged, and remediated across the FireEye as a Service customer base. Throughout the webinar he will also share his insights into how our analysts handle APT threats, the attacker lifecycle, and remediation tactics.
Do you want to stop the complaints from upper management about malicious emails slipping through your current antivirus and antispam gateways? Has your IT team had enough of dealing with scourges such as CyptoWall? Are you tired of hearing that the “next big thing” from various IT security vendors will solve these problems only to see the products fail when put to the test? If you have any or all of these problems, this webinar is for you.
According to Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report, 77% of infections originate from emails containing malicious attachments or URLs–emails that should be stopped at the perimeter. FireEye can make that happen.
Join us on August 13 for a demonstration of how our proven Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) technology can help protect your organization from known and unknown threats. The webinar will also cover the threat landscape and provide information on:

•How FireEye can protect your email in the cloud and in your data center
As always, we’ll leave plenty of time for Q&A. Register today.
Rajiv Raghunarayan, Director, Product Marketing, Dan Reis, Endpoint Director
Traditional endpoint solutions were designed to deal with static, known threats. They accumulate large threat databases and signatures and when matches are found the threat is blocked. This approach simply does not work against today’s advanced and unknown attacks. And while organizations must protect every single endpoint, both traditional and mobile, an attacker only needs to compromise one to cause damage. Register now for this webinar where you will:
• Learn why protecting the multitude of endpoints is an on-going challenge
• Find out the importance behind detection and containment on all types of endpoints from PC to mobile
• Hear how FireEye offerings can help proactively protect against unknown threats on the endpoint
How can your company ensure all threat vectors are protected? In this webinar you will:
- Find out what it takes to secure your organization from today’s evasive advanced cyber threats
- Discover how to detect blended attacks that point products miss
- Learn how to safeguard your intellectual property, critical infrastructure, and customer records from multi-vector, targeted attacks
- Understand how to respond to incidents faster by reducing the number of false positives your security team has to sift through
- Get introduced to the FireEye products that can help achieve enterprise network security

Matt Graeber, Staff Reverse Engineer, Dimiter Andonov, Staff Reverse Engineer
Join FireEye Labs Advanced Reverse Engineering (FLARE) team members Matt Graeber and Dimiter Andonov for another exciting deep dive on new malware case studies found during Mandiant investigations. FLARE is dedicated to malware analysis and the development of tools to assist reverse engineering. The two malware they’ll dissect as part of this interactive discussion include:
1.Steganogram Shellcode Backdoor - The malware is a downloader and launcher that uses steganography to extract shellcode, commands, and data from PNG images. Which results in advanced modular backdoor capable of collecting wide range information related to the compromised system and executing even more shellcode!
2.Hybrid 32/64-bit Malware - The malware mixes 32-bit and 64-bit code to inject into the explorer.exe process depending upon the target architecture. We’ll show how this broke our malware tools and our solution.
Your adversaries are people: creative, nimble and persistent. They can bypass conventional security deployments almost at will, breaching systems in a wide swatch of industries and geographies.
Technology alone will not defeat a determined attacker. You need a strategic defense partner that combines the most advanced technology platform with the leading cyber security expertise and the latest global threat intelligence from around the world. FireEye as a Service (FaaS) does exactly this, and allows you to detect, prevent, analyze, and respond to security incidents in minutes rather than months.
Join FireEye, VP, CTO - Americas Josh Goldfarb, as he explores:
- The current state of cybersecurity and the new threat landscape
- The failure of traditional defense models in the face of a new adversary
- The value of an Adaptive Defense strategy and working with a trusted partner

Well-maintained perimeter defenses are a key part of any security strategy. Organizations increasingly recognize that they must also complement their perimeter defenses with strong forensics capabilities to investigate and analyze attacks. When attacked, an enterprise needs to be able to rapidly investigate and determine the scope and impact of the incident so they can effectively contain the threat and secure their network.
In interactive this session, you will learn about:
• The key use cases for network forensics
• The typical organization that acquires network forensics technologies
• How FireEye Enterprise Forensics enables the proper response to today’s cyber attacks
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

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!
