Continuous Monitoring to Detect Advanced Persistent Threats

Presented by

Tony Cole, VP / Global Government CTO FireEye, Inc.

About this talk

For federal agencies, cyber attacks are a fact of life. Since 2006, the number of cyber incidents reported by federal agencies has increased by 782 percent, according to the Government Accountability Office. And with the emergence of a new generation of advanced malware, zero-day exploits, and targeted advanced persistent threats (APTs), these attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and successful. Traditional security defenses are no longer effective. Organizations need an advanced, game-changing technology to enable timely detection and protection. Virtual execution techniques for timely signature-less attack identification, coupled with dynamic threat intelligence sharing across the globe, enables proactive continuous monitoring, ensures detection of unauthorized activity during early stages of an attack, and helps minimize damage. Continuous monitoring using these techniques provides for greater situational awareness while also increasing the overall security posture and efficacy of an organization, proven in more than 60 government agencies worldwide. In this webinar you will learn: * Why Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are successful * The anatomy of actual attack scenarios and their multi-stage approach * How a new model for advanced threat detection can protect your agency
