Stopping the Scam – Techniques for Defending Against Today’s Social Engineering
Are humans the weakest part of the security chain? This presentation looks at the most common social engineering attacks in use today and how they manipulate people to divulge personal and confidential information. These effective schemes are common across social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. With Phishing attacks increasing over 60% in 2012, the presentation will explore why this form of attack is often the first step in exploiting an individual or corporation, and recommend techniques to avoid these scams.

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.
Presented by Tyler Moffitt, senior threat research analyst at Webroot, this webinar is based on data derived from the Webroot Threat Intelligence Platform, Webroot’s machine learning and contextual analysis engine.
Comprised of millions of connected sensors and endpoints, in 2016 the Webroot Threat Intelligence Platform observed:
•94% of malware and PUAs were seen only once
•Approximately 1/3 of URLs were high risk
•Zero-day phishing URLs doubled
Get the insights you need to stay ahead of the malware curve in 2017.
We hope you can join us for this live, educational session!
This presentation provides an overview of the threats against a wide range of organizations and individuals during 2016. This overview is based on research and analysis conducted by the Webroot Threat Research team. The report includes analysis of top ransomware variants, details on the changes to exploit kits, phishing detection statistics, insights into file reputation and encounter rates with malware and new information on the IoT environment. All data presented comes from Webroot’s Intelligence Network and was observed during 2016. We will also be looking forward into 2017 and making our predictions regarding the evolving threat landscape.
Today’s threats evolve at an alarming pace. That means cybersecurity and threat intelligence have to move even faster to help businesses stay secure against modern cyberattacks. Join us for in-depth technical demonstration of Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection to learn how Webroot works to safeguard your employees, clients, and data without adding complexity or slowing users down.
This webinar will provide expert insights on the latest cybercriminal activity and recognize the year's most innovative, dangerous, and pervasive malware. Specifically, we will be covering the latest developments and providing updates on Angler, Neutrino, CryptXXX, TeslaCrypt, Locky, Cerber, CryptoMix, and RaaS. Come learn about these developments and strategies to help secure your organization from ransomware and next-generation cyberthreats.
Phishing has long been one on the most successful ways of compromising users and also organizations’ networks. This webinar looks at the state of Phishing today, recommends what people, processes and technology can do to minimize the risks. And discusses a new Real-Time Anti-Phishing solution that is defeating this highly effective compromise.
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.
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.
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.
Attendees will leave this presentation with:
• An overview of the common threats and methods used to perform attacks.
• A summary of the impact such threats bring to both users and businesses.
• A better understanding of the challenges and benefits of deploying a cloud-based security solution.

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.
