How to Rethink End-User Protection and Eliminate Phishing and Ransomware

Ransomware attacks have surged in the past year–and with the rise of ransomware-as-a-service, it’s become an increasingly profitable tactic for cyber criminals.

According to Cybersecurity Ventures, in 2021 global losses from ransomware attacks are expected to exceed $20bn, and by 2031 that figure may be as high as $265bn. This follows recent high-profile attacks that led to Colonial Pipeline in the US paying over $4m in Bitcoin to the attackers and Travelex paying $2.3m to regain control after hackers shut down its financial transaction networks.

Such is the severity of the situation that 60% of respondents to a recent Menlo poll think ransomware attacks should be treated the same as terrorist attacks. But it is quite possible to make malware, even ransomware attacks, a distant memory. To do so, organizations should discard outdated detect-and-remediate approaches and rethink how they protect users, applications, data and the business from these attacks from the outset.

Join this 1-hour webinar to learn:
• How phishing and ransomware attack trends have changed as a result of COVID-19
• Ways you can eliminate ransomware and protect your digital and remote workforce
• How a leading logistics and insurance business achieves 100% malware protection without impacting end-user experience or convenience

    James Coker
    Bots can be of significant benefit to organization by automating repetitive tasks and providing faster customer service. However, they are also increasingly becoming a powerful tool for cyber-criminals and fraudsters to launch attacks. Given the more dangerous and ever-evolving digital threat landscape, it is critical that security and fraud teams can rapidly identify and block “bad” bots before they can steal data, commit fraud, or harm the business.

    In this webinar, a panel of experts will highlight the growing use of bots in cyber-criminal activity and offer advice to security teams on mitigating this threat.

    Attendees will learn how to:
    • Prevent excessive cloud charges and security team distractions due to bot traffic
    • Stop credential stuffing attacks that can lead to data breaches and account takeovers
    • Mitigate sophisticated fraud that uses bots and automation to imitate human behavior
  • Optimizing Incident Response: A Practitioner's Guide Nov 18 2021 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Danny Bradbury
    Organizations and security professionals defending themselves against breaches and incidents face a challenging time. Investigations are multiplying and diversifying, spurred by global trends and challenges. These include COVID-19, which forced many people to work from home without preparation, and the increased pressures to bring your own device (BYOD) that it created. Proliferating privacy regulations and cloud computing have also left many organizations vulnerable to a breach. Conducting effective investigations has become increasingly complex and more difficult to negotiate than ever before.

    In the case of a cyberattack, teams need an incident response plan with powerful integrated solutions to help investigate attacks at the early stages. Their tools must enable them to respond quickly and remotely, even when employees are off the company network or VPN. This webinar will discuss ways to accelerate incident response through automation, how to use digital forensics to trace the root of the breach, and how to conduct incident response in the cloud.

    Talking points will include:
    - How to accelerate incident response through automation
    - How to use digital forensics to trace the root of a breach
    - Incident response in the cloud
  • Defending the Unknown: New Approaches to Cybersecurity Asset Management Nov 18 2021 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Benjamin David
    The digital transformation has impacted the ability of security teams to detect and prevent cyber-attacks. The increased use of the hybrid cloud for enterprise workloads, SaaS applications and unmanaged endpoints has resulted in significant technology sprawl. To protect our environment, we first need to know what we must protect.

    Traditional approaches to IT asset management have not scaled to the modern cloud deployment, with the short-lived nature of many cloud services and the need to understand cyber-risk across a diverse environment of virtual machines, users, devices and applications.

    This session will look at new approaches to a foundational challenge: how asset management can be re-invented and made fit for purpose for cybersecurity use cases.

    Key takeaways:
    • Current approaches to asset management today and their limitations
    • The importance of measuring and understanding your attack surface
    • Building a relationship-based asset model to uncover cyber-risk
    • Common cyber asset management use cases
  • Demystifying The Future of Zero Trust in 2022 Nov 11 2021 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Danny Bradbury
    Navigating the expansion of traditional workforces, ubiquity of security threats and the urgency to accelerate digital transformation efforts has left organizations vulnerable. This paradigm shift has forever changed the traditional view of ‘trusted network’ and paved the way for a zero trust architecture rooted in the concept of “never trust, always verify.” Join our panelists in this interactive session to explore the principles of zero trust and plan your migration to an access mechanism that supports networks without boundaries.

    Talking points will include:
    - Understanding the basic principles of zero trust
    - Preparing your infrastructure for a zero-trust future
    - Organizational requirements to support zero-trust access mechanisms
  • Staying on Top of Diversifying Ransomware Threats Nov 11 2021 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Benjamin David
    Ransomware has swiftly grown to become one of the great security concerns for organizations worldwide. Behind the scenes of threat actors targeting organizations with destructive malware, a diverse illicit economy has formed, and the structure of the criminal organizations behind the attacks has flattened.

    An indefinite number of distinct threat actors employ a wide array of techniques for any single ransomware family, ranging from requiring little skill sophistication to attack chains exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities. Now, the criminals gaining access to your network may not be the same who detonate ransomware.

    Join us in this webinar to understand:
    - An overview of the techniques used for any single ransomware family
    - Why stopping a ransomware attack requires the visibility of an EDR
    - How an EDR allows defenders to monitor for the diversity in attack techniques and the dwell time between the initial access and actual ransomware operation
  • Protecting Hybrid Active Directory Environments from Cyber-Attacks Nov 4 2021 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: James Coker
    The inherent security weaknesses of on-premises Active Directory (AD) have been well documented, but the risk profile has increased further as a result of the shift to hybrid working environments that use both AD and Azure Active Directory. This has expanded the attack surface for adversaries, and recent incidents, including the SolarWinds breach, are evidence that cyber-criminals are actively targeting hybrid identity security gaps.

    Although many organizations have strategic plans to move services and assets to the cloud, the reality is that most will be operating in a hybrid identity scenario for the foreseeable future. Amid this landscape, organizations must enhance their AD and Azure AD defenses. In this session, a panel of security experts will outline the top security risks to watch for in a hybrid AD environment and offer guidance and expertise on how organizations can harden their hybrid AD security defenses.

    Attendees will learn:
    · The Azure AD authentication model and how it differs from on-premises AD authentication
    · Changing definition of the “perimeter” in Azure Active Directory
    · The radical shift in the permission model—with a real-world example of delegated application permissions and how misconfigurations can open the door to cyber-attacks

    Benjamin David and Dr Anton Chuvakin
    Many organizations promise to transform your security operations center (SOC) with technology, advice or their personnel. However, what does it take to really transform your SOC to be ready for future threats? What tools are needed? What new processes? What are the dependencies?

    Let's explore these and other questions in this talk.
  • Machine ID Management and Digital Transformation: Building a Secure Future Recorded: Oct 21 2021 62 mins
    Benjamin David
    Machines already outnumber the humans on your network, which means every machine needs a trusted identity. Consider IoT devices, mobile devices and software-defined workloads and applications – trusted identity for each and every machine is critical.

    As zero-trust and multi-cloud architecture become the norm, the role of machine identities in enterprise IAM (identity and access management) has reached critical importance – each needing to be managed and protected. The stakes are high, and keeping ahead of outages, key theft or misuse and internal and regulatory audits is a serious challenge.

    In this webinar, our panel will discuss:
    · The use (and misuse) of machine identities in organizations today
    · Implications of machine IDs on data privacy and protection
    · Strategies and recommendations to manage machine identities
    · How to operationalize your strategy with a Crypto Center of Excellence (CCoE)
  • How MDR Can Shelter Organizations From the Cyber Storm Recorded: Oct 14 2021 63 mins
    Eleanor Dallaway
    Three forces are creating a perfect cyber storm: an escalated threat level, a cyber-talent shortage and the growing complexity of managing a multitude of security solutions, all exacerbated by the digital shift during COVID-19. This storm is driving change, forcing us to break down silos between endpoint, workload, network and identity. It's driving the need to leverage existing tooling rather than bolting on more. It’s also reshaping managed security services to be less focused on "busy work," and more focused on "expert work."

    Managed detection and response (MDR) services could provide the shelter from this storm for organizations if leveraged correctly and with the right technologies and skills in place. In this webinar, a panel of security experts will break down the current threat landscape and how MDR can protect your organization in this environment.

    Key takeaways:
    · The trends increasing the risk of cyber-attacks to organizations
    · The development of MDR services and their growing relevance
    · How to select an MDR solution that works for your organization
