APT Malware and Crimeware – Part 1

APT Malware and Crimeware – Part 1

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 | 8:30am to 12:30pm

Is there a magic security bullet anymore?  Can we ever feel safe because we have a UTM or Layer 7 Firewalls?  Can one security product vendor get it all done for you?  What is the right combination of products and processes that can achieve the highest possible security posture for your organization?

These are questions that CIO’s and IT Executives have been asking themselves as of late with the rise of advanced persistent threats (APTs).  Unlike traditional Malware and Viruses, new Crimeware and APTs completely hijack your equipment and operate in stealth so that they are more capable of going undetected.

This topic has become an issue of National Security; the biggest businesses in the US are struggling, even with their dedicated security teams.

So, what is a medium business of 100-5000 users to do?

Don’t wait for your installed products to find Malware and Crimeware!  Traditional tools are woeful and inadequate.

Over the next 3 months, the CIO Executive Series will review 13 new approaches to Malware/Crimeware defense in order to better prepare you for the upcoming battle you’re sure to fight.

We will help you change the rules of the game by becoming proactive in rooting out malware!

Make it hard for these malicious APTs to operate in stealth.
