Fighting Off an Advanced Persistent Threat and Defending Infrastructure and Data
Today's cybercrime industry is thriving and has transformed itself to improve efficiency, scalability and profitability through the introduction of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).  The latest in cyber-risk, APTs are a broad pallet of attack possibilities that enabling attackers to break into systems, avoid detection, and maintain long-term access to compromised networks.  Confronting the threat does not always require the implementation of new technologies but it does require rethinking some of the strategies that companies may be adopting to protecting data.

In this in-depth presentation, Dr. Eric Cole will present the following: 

  • Importance of sharing communication best practices to articulate risk across your organization to eliminate potential backdoors
  • How to identify an APT and then implement a remediation plan that includes the collection and review audit information with regards to accessing sensitive assets.
  • Understand how multiple vulnerabilities and social engineering techniques can be linked into a single attack
  • How APT’s are designed for long-term espionage - siphoning off Microsoft Office files and PDFs to achieve desired objectives of penetrating your organization
  • Importance of educating end users to help them understand their role in stopping social engineering techniques
  • Continuously look for gaps that may appear in security infrastructure

During the ISE Northeast Sponsor Pavilion and Dinner Buffet, Dr. Eric Cole will sign his book, “Network Security Bible” at the Core Security Booth.

Why Information Security is a Top of Mind Issue for Everyone > Download Presentation
Before the digital revolution, security professionals were kept awake at night worrying about the potential threat posed by an untrustworthy member of their organization  Now with insider threats, social engineering, spear phishing, legitimate websites hosting malware as well as blended threats with multiple infection vectors being commonplace and the rapid adoption of cloud and mobile computing, Information Security Executives are being asked by the C-Suite, Board of Directors, lines of business leaders, end-users and customers and partners alike about what is being done to combat these threats.

In this keynote presentation, John will share how to articulate that information security has become a business enabler and is critical to organizations. This presentation explores information security from a business point of view with the premise that investing the time and resources needed for security risk mitigation produces excellent returns from a business perspective.  Additionally, this presentation explains ways of measuring the value of information security and ensuring that security investments yield suitable business returns across the enterprise.
