How to Build a Successful Insider Threat Team
Date: Sep 07, 2016

View archived webinar

You may think of insider threats as just another security problem, but youd be wrong. In fact, under NISPOM Conforming Change 2, all federal government contractors will be required to have an insider threat program in place by Nov 1, 2016. Thats because the federal government, along with many Fortune 500 companies, realizes that insidersemployees, contractors and partnersknow your business better than any outside attacker ever could. They are trusted with access to sensitive information and assets, which, if mishandled, can cause major security breaches and result in serious harm to your organization.

To make matters worse, because insiders are your teammates, you can't run the risk of mistakenly accusing an insider of wrongdoing or letting the details of an investigation leak out to other employees. Thats why organizations need a great insider threat team in place. But what goes into creating that great insider threat team and where do you even start? 

Join us for this enlightening webinar where guest speaker and Forrester analyst Joseph Blankenship will give you insights into:

  • What to consider when building your insider threat team
  • How to run an insider threat program
  • Why insider threat teams need to analyze both structured and unstructured data
  • How to ensure employee privacy while also protecting your organization

We look forward to seeing you there!

Meta Data, Big Data and the Coming Tectonic Shift in Security
Date: Jun 02, 2016

View archived webinar

While yesterdays security model was largely based on prevention of breaches, tomorrows security solutions will increasingly focus on detection of breaches from within followed by containment. This is a large shift both in terms of investment dollars and technologies. Focusing on detection of breaches provides an opportunity to reverse the asymmetry between the attacker and defender and shift the odds of success in favor or the defender. However, a detection based strategy requires building context of the organizations operating environment, triangulating bad-like behavior against what is normal-like behavior for an organization and trying to identify anomalies that could lead to the presence of malware in the organization. This requires marrying big data type solutions with SIEM type technologies. In this new world of big data for security, the ability to both, generate relevant and increasingly large volumes of data, as well as consume, correlate, index and alert on that data will require powerful and unique solutions that a defender can leverage as the core of their cyber security strategy.

The Hidden Enemy: Malvertising and Ransomware
Date: May 25, 2016

View archived webinar

Malvertising is increasing in sophistication and prevalence, and often being used to distribute ransomware. According to the FBI, criminals are netting an estimated $325–500 million a year through these scams. But while the FBI is warning of a rise in ransomware, they are at a loss when it comes to how to handle it: “The ransomware is that good,” says Joseph Bonavolonta, the Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s CYBER and Counterintelligence Program in its Boston office. “To be honest, we often advise people just to pay the ransom.”

As malvertising-based infections (including ransomware) in businesses increase, questions will arise on who is accountable – ad networks, site owners, or owners of the ad content? If your company is a victim, and the FBI is just advising to pay the ransom, can you begin to seek legal remedy against the ad networks or content owners that were the vector for the infection?

This webinar give the audience a better understanding of the impact of malvertising and ransomware. It will also tackle some of the biggest misconceptions, latest tactics/incidents, how these attacks are delivered and why your company may be at risk without you even knowing it.

Key takeaways include:

  • The growth in malvertising and malvertising-based ransomware.
  • A better understanding of the tactics and techniques cybercriminals use to deliver and cover up their malvertising campaigns.
  • Tools and solutions to help detect, eliminate, and protect your business.

Threat Intelligence Processes are a Journey; Not a Destination
Date: Mar 29, 2016

View archived webinar

A decade ago manual analytics were all the rage. Unfortunately, yesterdays processes can no longer scale to the threats of today. For example, many organizations are still convinced the answer to threat intelligence is a SIEM and vendor feeds - yet are complacent in allowing analysts to conduct highly repetitive and manual tasks versus enabling them to do what they do best, analyze threats.

Join us for this webinar in which we will demonstrate how the right process paired with the right threat intelligence platform (TIP) are key in automating resource intensive aspects when running a threat intelligence team. Understanding what you are trying to achieve and building processes around that is more efficient and effective in the long run -allowing your organization to save time and money.

Register and attend this webinar to learn how to:

  • Replace inefficiencies with automation so your team can focus on analysis
  • Prioritize the flood of notifications to know when and where to act
  • Use process and platform to maximize the potential of your team

Cybersecurity vendors devote much of their attention to the technical aspects of their task: malware payloads, distribution methods, infection chains, stolen data, and so on. To be sure, these elements are important. But focusing on them too narrowly neglects a simple fact: in the end, people are the targets.

That’s why attacks are still getting through, despite advances in detection and response technology. From email and web to social media and mobile apps, attackers are exploiting the human factor.

Join Proofpoint Director of Threat Intelligence Patrick Wheeler as he discusses The Human Factor 2016 report.

This webinar presents original ?eld research from data gathered by Proofpoint products deployed in customer settings around the world.  Patrick will cover threats in email attachments, social media posts, and URLs.

In this webinar you will see not just who is clicking what—but when, where, and why they are clicking:

  • Who is being targeted, and who is falling victim
  • What attackers are sending, and which lures are working
  • When threats arrive, and when people are most likely to click
