In the last several months we have monitored an apparent surge in targeted attacks against government agencies. Cybercriminals have shifted the way they target agencies, abandoning large-scale, generalized attacks in favor of more targeted, dynamic techniques with bigger payoffs, including spear-phishing and “whaling”. Because targeted cybercrime is so profitable, perpetrators are highly motivated to find new ways to gather sensitive data for their own personal gain.
Register now to hear from Bradley Anstis, Vice President of Technical Strategy at M86 Security, as he presents an overview of today’s internet threat landscape and the steps that agencies can take to protect themselves. This webcast will look at the anatomy of common attacks such as spear-phishing, blended threat emails and malicious email attachments. We will then look at how these attacks are successful, even against world leading IT Security organizations to identify any potential holes in your organization’s security architecture.
This webcast will help you:
* Understand the basics of targeted attacks, the different types of attack, and how Advanced Persistent Threats or APT’s are a subset of targeted attacks
* Learn more about the methods and tactics currently being used by cybercriminals to launch targeted attacks and why they are succeeding, in spite of investments in security
* Understand the current state of security controls and what you need to look for to identify potential holes in your agency
