  • Two-Factor, Too Furious: Subverting (and Protecting) Multi-factor Authentication Recorded: Jan 26 2017 42 mins
    Austin Baker, Sr. Consultant (Mandiant), Patrick Charbonneau, Consultant (Mandiant)
    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.

  • Operationalizing Threat Intelligence Recorded: Nov 17 2016 51 mins
    Jeff Berg, Sr. Manager, Cyber Threat Intelligence Services, Mandiant
    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.

  • Why Today’s Changing Threat Landscape Requires Agile Security Recorded: Nov 9 2016 60 mins
    Rajiv Raghunarayan, Sr. Director, Product Marketing, FireEye. Robert Westervelt, Research Manager, IDC.
    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.
  • 10 Components for Proactive Cyber Security Recorded: Oct 26 2016 59 mins
    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.

    As usual, we'll leave plenty of time for Q&A.
  • Crisis Communication After an Attack Recorded: Oct 19 2016 62 mins
    Chris Leach, Chief Technologist (HPE). Vitor De Souza, VP, Global Communications (FireEye)
    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.

  • Security-as-a-Service: New Threat Landscape Demands a New Paradigm Recorded: Sep 27 2016 47 mins
    Rudy Araujo, VP, Product & Solutions Marketing
    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.
