The Bots are Coming!

Actually, they are here. They now represent over 50 percent of internet traffic. But not all bots are bad. There are many good bots, such as chat bots and search engine bots, that we rely on in our day-to-day digital lives. You do need to know the difference and take control of your bot traffic—they cannot be ignored and you cannot just block them all. In this presentation, we will look at the growth of bots, good bots versus bad bots, what to look for in a bot mitigation solution and a few use cases.

Advanced Attackers And Evolving Enterprise Defenses

Advanced attackers are always looking for ways to attack organizations. The growing use of traffic encryption — over 50% of Web traffic today is encrypted — provides a simple trick for attackers to hide their threats and communications channels. Exploit kits, malware, adware, callbacks, as well as command & control channels leverage encrypted communications to infiltrate organizations and exfiltrate information. Fileless attacks are also becoming more common as a way to bypass traditional defenses. Come and learn about these emerging threats and what can be done to stop them.

Rethink Security with Zero Trust

Last year $86B was spent on cybersecurity yet a stunning 2/3rds of companies were still breached. And worse, those that were breached averaged five or more separate breaches. Bottom line: Something has to change. Today’s security is not secure.

The Top 5 Wi-Fi Security Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Attend our Wi-Fi security presentation and see how to avoid the top 5 deployment mistakes that leave managers and their networks open to compromise.

As employees at all levels default to Wi-Fi to access the corporate network, controlling who can join – and what they can do – has become business critical. The rise of low sophistication ‘things’ also rapidly increases the attack surface – with rising popularity of IoT hacks.

So how do different security models stand up to this new reality, and how secure is your connection? Bring your questions and join our speaker to cover:

  • The top 5 Wi-Fi security mistakes
  • Viewing exactly what’s happening on your network
  • Building an authentication and encryption model that doesn’t force user workarounds
  • Utilizing Private PSK technology that gives you the ability to easily onboard and identify devices, without security or complexity concerns
  • Using identity and context to tighten up gaps around ‘things’, BYOD, and user groups in traditional models

Next Generation Threat Hunting “Malware Analysis Simplified

Infocyte HUNT is a dissolvable agent based cyber security software solution that is easy-to-use, yet powerful to limit risk and eliminate dwell time by enabling an organization’s own IT and security professionals to proactively discover malware and persistent threats, active or dormant, that have successfully breached existing defenses.  HUNT will assume all endpoints are compromised, spend a few minutes on each and then use Forensic State Analysis (FSA) to find definitive proof.
