Dr. Torsten George
Vice President of Products and Global Marketing

A Blueprint for a Modern Enterprise Security Program

One of the biggest challenges in cyber security today is how to manage the volume, velocity, and complexity of data generated by the myriad of IT security tools. The feeds from these disconnected, siloed tools must be analyzed, normalized, and remediation efforts prioritized. The more tools, the more difficult the challenge. This security model requires legions of staff to comb through huge amounts of data to connect the dots and find the needle in the haystack. These efforts can take months, during which time attackers can exploit vulnerabilities and extract data. Rather than adding more tools, organizations need to implement a new, more efficient enterprise security model.

According to analyst firm Gartner, cyber risk management that uses intelligence-driven analytics can help organizations operationalize cyber security practices, break down silos, and enhance security operations tasks through automation. This presentation explores the emerging discipline of intelligence-driven cyber risk management as a response to the mounting cyber-attacks, advanced persistent threats, and insider leaks. It outlines not only today’s cyber security challenges, but provides practical advice of how to operationalize an organization’s cyber security practices across a growing attack surface.

Hacking Malware: How to Turn Evasive Malware Strengths into Weaknesses 

Developing sophisticated attacks takes time and requires heavy investment. Attackers safeguard their methods by designing malicious software to remain unnoticed by security tools for as long as possible. This educational session discusses some of the common evasive techniques that malware authors incorporate into their creations. Moreover, it will also propose several approaches for turning such capabilities against malware to defend endpoints, turning adversaries’ strengths into weaknesses.

Securing Your Data from Ransomware and Other Threats

The WannaCry Ransomware attack was just the latest in an epidemic-level series of attacks over the last several years. In fact, in 2016, companies worldwide paid over $1 BILLION due to Ransomware attacks; when you include the cost of downtime caused by these attacks, the total loss to businesses is closer to $50 BILLION. 34% of victimized businesses reported losing revenue due to Ransomware, while 20% had to stop operations completely in the aftermath of a successful data breach.  When it comes to a Ransomware attack, or any other type of data breach, the type of backup you have is critical.  That’s why having a business continuity solution in place should be a top priority.

Organizations have spent massive amounts of money to protect the perimeter of their networks, but if your business exists on the internet, there really is no perimeter. Benjamin Powell, technical marketing manager at RiskIQ, will discuss recent attacks on internet-facing assets, such as those on Polish banks in February, as well as critical vulnerabilities that can turn web servers into your worst enemy, like the Apache Struts vulnerability in March. The speed of business and cyber crime isn’t slowing down, so how can you be prepared to address these types of threats? Attend our session to find out how.
