With simple viruses and Trojans were all the rage, life was simpler for the average CSO. Now, threats of all types abound and the methods cyber attackers enlist to infiltrate networks have only become more varied, often a bit more sophisticated and most assuredly more frequent. One of the most problematic has proven to be APTs.
Targeted attacks, or APTs, can be complex and affect organizations of all sizes, across all industries. But that doesn't mean their detection and prevention has to be complex too. With constant confusion around ATAs and APTs, a staggering 68% of IT Managers admit they don't know what an APT is.
Join Dave Shackleford, founder of Voodoo Security and former CSO of Configuresoft, and Nick Levay, CSO of Bit9, to discuss why endpoint visibility and control is crucial to the security operations center. In this webcast you will learn how security teams can more readily define and identify meaningful indicators of compromise.
