In 2011, breaches dominated the security headlines. Whether you call them advanced persistent threats (APTs), targeted attacks, or advanced malware infections, their devastating results are the same. And stopping data theft from these advanced cyber threats has become a high priority project for many companies. 

What's so different about these stealthy threats that allow them to bypass traditional security layers? How are they successful at infiltrating networks?

Understanding what has changed in today's advanced threats that make them persistent and hard to detect is only part of the battle. In this webcast, we will discuss the three key elements to hunting down infected endpoints and unknown threats in your network.

You will learn:

  • How advanced malware and targeted attacks work
  • The many phases of the crimeware infection lifecycle
  • How command-and-control is used and can be detected
  • How correlating source reputation, communications behavior, and inbound malware forensics can rapidly identify infected assets under criminal control
