Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Ransomware (R)evolution

Over the past few years, malware authors have developed increasingly sophisticated and creative ways to infect endpoints. Encrypting ransomware is no longer merely an annoyance. It's a highly persistent and organized criminal activity in full deployment, with Ransomware-as-a-Service at its core. The damage from becoming a ransomware victim is considerable, and can even put organizations out of business.

At Webroot, we believe it's possible to effectively protect enterprises and users, but only by understanding your adversary and the techniques they use for their attacks. In this webinar, Webroot's own Senior Threat Research Analyst, Tyler Moffitt, will offer expert insights into the past, current, and emerging encrypting ransomware variants--and how businesses can stay ahead.

  • Your Small Business Will Be Hacked - Because It Is Easy Recorded: Jul 25 2017 56 mins
    Sean Martin, ITSPmagazine | Rusty Sailors, LP3 | Russell Mosley, Dynaxys | Tom Caldwell, Webroot
    - Broadcast LIVE from Las Vegas during Black Hat 2017 -

    Small and medium businesses face countless threats, most of which have a human at their origin. These criminals, driven by financial gain, are essentially business owners – not unlike yourself – who are looking to spend as little money and as few resources as necessary to generate as much revenue as possible. Therefore, most cybercriminals target businesses that have a false sense of security.

    Why would a cybercriminal spend a fortune going after a Fortune 1,000 when they can spend a few bucks to crack a small business? Exactly!

    During this live webinar, we’ll explore the types of threats that small and medium businesses face and the business risk associated with these threats. It’s easier to get hacked than you think and it’s only a matter of time before it happens. Will your business be prepared? Are you doing everything you can to protect yourself beforehand?

    Knowing that perfection is not possible, our panel of experts will look at 4 key steps that small and medium businesses should take to reach a reasonable level of cybersecurity:

    - How to conduct an analysis to determine risk and the need to focus on cybersecurity within your business
    - How to assess the cost of a breach, a loss of information and the impact that a cybersecurity event can have on your customers and partners
    - How to create a plan to protect your systems, information, revenue and customers’ data
    - Best practices for guiding your implementation, from segmentation to employee access control policies to information protection controls

    Join us for an extremely informative session geared towards small and medium business owners and their IT staff.

  • Stopping Malware Before It Reaches Your Network Recorded: May 30 2017 35 mins
    Jonathan Barnett | Sales Engineer
    Malware defenses have typically been concentrated at the network edge and then at the endpoint layer. When so much business is now in the cloud and user Internet requests are resolved outside the network it’s time to manage and control at the cloud ‘domain’ layer too. This webinar looks at a simple, fast, highly effective and easy way to block most malware before it reaches your network and deliver more secure Internet access at the same time.
  • FAKE NEWS – Signatureless! File less! Next Generation! X-Generation! Recorded: Apr 18 2017 29 mins
    Tim Sheahen | Senior Manager Sales
    Frankly I’m confused (and I work in endpoint security). In many ways you shouldn’t have to care about the terminology a vendor is using, but when it’s used to confuse and obscure reality, then you do.

    What really matters is how effective is your endpoint security at stopping users and devices from being compromised? How many ways will it prevent attacks and how do they all add up in delivering high performance, multi-vector protection?

    In this BrightTalk webinar we will be calling it as we see it, dispelling the ambiguous words and techno-babble being used and focusing on the core requirements you should ask all endpoint vendors for?

    Finally, this webinar is not going to be a pitch. At Webroot we have never claimed, and are not claiming that we’re a magic ‘silver bullet’, and with five years of cloud-driven endpoint security we’re not the ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ either.

    What we want you to come away from this webinar with is the ammunition to ask hard questions about your endpoint security that will help you make better endpoint security decisions, when you or your colleagues have to make them.

    We want you to recognize the FAKE NEWS in endpoint security for what it really is – BS.

  • 2016 Webroot Quarterly Threat Update Recorded: Aug 22 2016 48 mins
    Tyler Moffitt | Security Threat Research Analyst
    According to the latest annual Webroot Threat Brief, 97% of malware is unique to a specific endpoint, rendering static, signature-database security virtually useless. In fact, many attacks are staged, delivered, and terminated within a matter of hours, or even minutes, having harvested user credentials and other sensitive information. With the rising popularity of polymorphism and other trends, it is more crucial than ever that organizations strengthen their security postures with next-generation endpoint protection and real-time, highly accurate threat intelligence. Join this webinar for an in-depth discussion of the most recent quarter’s malware stats and trends, and how businesses can leverage this data to keep themselves, their users, and their customers safe from advanced attacks.
  • Cloud security best practices for defending against APTs Recorded: May 31 2016 43 mins
    Tyler Moffitt | Senior Threat Research Analyst
    Year over year, newer and more inventive social-engineering techniques, such as watering hole attacks and spear phishing, are combined with malware attacks to trick users into handing over their personal information. Traditional security solutions are unable to keep up with these new threats and provide effective solutions. By using big data analytics and security intelligence, a Security-as-a-Service platform provides real-time protection to millions of end users daily. This will define the next generation of cloud-based threat identification and advanced persistent threat prevention by leveraging collective cloud-hosted intelligence to offer up-to-the-minute protection—both on the web and across all device platforms.

    • A better understanding of the challenges and benefits of deploying a cloud-based security solution.
  • The Threat Landscape of Today and Tomorrow Recorded: Apr 12 2016 48 mins
    Tyler Moffitt, Sr Threat Research Analyst at Webroot, Inc.
    Today's advanced malware is increasingly difficult to remove and often even harder to detect in the first place. In this presentation, we examine the modern threat landscape and discuss the shortcomings of traditional antivirus; as well as how organizations can stay ahead of the malware curve. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what your traditional AV is capable of blocking since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Either through social engineering or advanced evasive tactics, traditional antivirus technology is fighting an uphill battle to defend against it. Learn about highlights and revelations from Blackhat 2015; specifically about the 1.4 million Chrysler vehicle hack, how windows software update services can be hacked, the future of biometrics, and the progress encrypting ransomware. We also will talk about updates on law enforcement's attempts to catch cybercriminals. We will also discuss the startling trends we've seen from phishing attacks and mobile malware and what it means for an end user.
