Best Practices for Dealing with Targeted Attacks

Our friend Eugene Shultz, CISM, CISSP at Emagined Security is speaking and we recommend our security friends, partners, and clients to attend.

Date: 2 November 2010, 3pm GMT
Duration: 1 hours

As malware proliferation continues, so do the instances of organised attacks, such as the recent Stuxnet threat against industrial control systems.

The criminal intent on display is just one example of many instances that continue to impact enterprises, but go unreported by the media.

Join our panel of security experts for what promises to be an entertaining and fascinating insight into the world of advanced targeted attacks, where we aim to provide answers to the following questions:

  • What defines an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)?
  • Are advanced targeted attacks government sponsored?
  • To what extend are zero-day vulnerabilities traded through networks of organised criminals?
  • How much do we expect previously unknown vulnerabilities to fetch on the black market?
  • How likely am I to be targeted and what can I do to reduce my risk?

Attend this webinar to:

  • Find out how IT infrastructures are currently being targeted and which applications are most vulnerable to attack
  • Learn more about the nature of the latest attacks, look inside the anatomy of an attack and see the types of vulnerability exploited
  • Be presented with defence strategies to consider as information security is reviewed
  • Receive latest research findings about the current malware threat

This webinar is for:

  • IT security officers concerned about targeted attacks and the threat to their business
  • IT professionals wanting to stay up to date with latest anti-malware research and defence mechanisms
  • Managers wanting to cut through the media hype and distinguish between the perceived and actual threat to their business
