Speaker opportunity: Infosecurity webinar, Tues 31 May

I’m currently looking for IT security experts for this webinar, Knowing the Unknown – Methods and Tools for Detecting Advanced, Targeted Cyber Threats, which is on Tuesday 31 May at 1500 London time.

The full outline is below, but as ever we prefer CIOs and CISOs, academic researchers and independent consultants. The speaking slots, unfortunately, are not open to those working for information security vendors.

Anyone who’s interested – please contact me by email (Infosecurity at stephenpritchard dot com) no later than 1500 on Friday 14 May.
Knowing the Unknown – Methods and Tools for Detecting Advanced, Targeted Cyber Threats

According to research institutes, 70-90% of malwares found in breach investigations are unique to that organization – meaning there is no chance of detecting them with traditional security measures. As advanced threats become more and more quite, sophisticated and stealthy – detection and analysis methods need to be adapted accordingly. Using behavioral analysis, machine learning, and progressive visualization tools allows organizations to better detect, analyze and respond to threats.

In this webinar we’ll review advanced threats stealth mechanisms and the methods to detect them – with focus on optimizing analysis processes and minimizing time intervals.

Key Takeaways:

Advanced threats stealth and persistency mechanisms

Methods to minimize detection and analysis timeframes when confronting advanced and targeted threats

What tools can be used to facilitate detection and response for advanced threats
