Mobile Security: What Are The Real World Risks?

Ryan Naraine, Kaspersky Lab Senior Security Strategist
The explosion in mobile device usage within corporate networks has raised many security concerns ranging from spyware and malware to data exfiltration. With an increasing mobile workforce, smart phones, laptops and tablets are viable targets for malware authors. Malware is part of our daily life and is platform agnostic.

Attend this webinar to learn more about:

- Mobile risks at every layer in the three major mobile OS/platforms: Android, iOS and BlackBerry
- Key threats associated with your mobile and roaming workforce
- Security measures to prevent corporate data leakage and malware infection on devices

Please join, Kaspersky Lab Senior Security Strategist, Ryan Naraine, who will provide an in-depth look at the real-world risks associated with the deployment of mobile devices in the enterprise and some practical advice to minimize the damage from a possible attack.

  • Join Tom Kellerman, Chief Cyber Security Officer for Trend Micro, in an informative webinar specifically tailored for corporate executives and directors who need to develop and implement a comprehensive cyber security strategy. Tom will highlight critical information including 2015 cyber threat trends and how risk management strategies have changed.

    During this live webinar, you’ll learn:
    • How to identify, classify, and protect your valuable data assets
    • How to assess your organization’s vulnerability to attack
    • How to measure and mitigate cyber risks cost-effectively
    • And more...
  • A new category of threat is emerging – a threat designed to evade traditional signature-based technologies such as Anti-Virus and Intrusion Detection. Attempting to meet the challenge is a new class of technology, “Advanced Malware Protection” or “AMP,” which is an industry term for technology designed to continuously monitor for, offload and detonate files in a sandbox - safely away from the main environment - to observe and detect malicious objects.

    If a security device produces an alert in the forest, who’s there to hear it?

    The challenge is these next generation advanced malware detection solutions produce so much detail about the suspicious activity that most organizations do not have the resources to thoroughly investigate/analyze. The best technology means nothing if you don’t have the right expertise to react to the alert, quickly decipher complex reports, investigate the threat, and determine the right response. And meanwhile, the threat actors aren’t standing still – they’re developing measures to circumvent controls in some traditional sandbox environments.

    You will learn:
    1.How the threat is evolving and how actors are employing evasive practices to overcome traditional and even some more sophisticated security defenses
    2.Why next generation sandboxing and full-system emulation are the keys to combatting evasive malware threats
    3.The expertise needed to accurately identify and diagnose the threat once the alert is received
    4.How to ensure your organization has the ability to respond effectively to the incident and close all the backdoors a threat actor may have opened
  • 2014 could have easily been called, “The year of the biggest security breaches since the beginning of forever.” But given current security practices and technologies, many of the breaches could have been prevented. So why weren’t they?

    Many of the affected companies fell into a very common trap, thinking that if a company goes to the trouble to be legally compliant then it will be effectively “secure.” Unfortunately, as with many kinds of regulations, legal compliance really represents the absolute least amount of effort required. If companies want to give themselves the best chance to avoid the very severe consequences that come with a major breach, there are five practices they need to put in place now.

    Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Amrit Williams, CTO of CloudPassage, on this webinar to learn
    · Possible gaps left by the compliance-first approach to security
    · How to limit vulnerabilities across traditional, virtual and cloud infrastructures
    · Five best practices to avoid a major security breach in 2015

  • The Internet of Things (the new buzzword for the tech industry) is increasing the connectedness of people and things on a scale that was once beyond imagination. Connected devices outnumber the world's population by 1.5 to 1.It is expected to eventually touch some 200 billion cars, appliances, machinery and devices globally, handling things like remote operation, monitoring and interaction among Internet-connected products.

    In combination with the fact that there are almost as many cell-phone subscriptions (6.8 billion) as there are people on this earth (seven billion), we have all the ingredients for a Perfect Cyber Storm.

    Join me for an informal discussion of the challenges for our profession, and some possible solutions.

  • FireEye recently released a new report that documents how and why governments around the world are turning to the cyber domain as a cost-effective way to spy on other countries, steal technology, and even wage war.

    Whether it’s sensitive military, diplomatic, or economic information, governments depend on the integrity of their data. If that data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe.

    In the wake of two apparent state- and government-sponsored attacks, APT1 and APT28, government agencies must understand why they are in attackers’ crosshairs, what attackers might be seeking, and how they can protect themselves.

    Join us for a dynamic discussion with subject matter experts where you will learn:

    •What makes your government-related organization an appealing target – whether you’re a political opponent, business, agency or vendor
    •Why it’s important to determine who could be planning an attack, their motives, and how they might carry out their goals
    •How to assess your level of preparedness and how to protect yourself if you are not ready for this new era of cyber warfare
