Malware analysis is an increasingly important tool in an organization’s incident-management toolkit — enabling it to determine the source and potential impact of an intercepted virus, worm or trojan. Malware analysis can also help a target company assess damage and data loss, respond accordingly, and reset defenses going forward.

SC Media’s half-day virtual event will help bring you up to speed on a capability of increasing relevance to companies across a broad range of sizes and sectors. Key discussion and presentation topics include:

  • Proven tools and methodologies that detect and mitigate malware attacks
  • Establishing a malware analysis capability that suits your organization
  • A look over the horizon at tomorrow’s malware threats

To determine if malware analysis has place in your security plan, register now.
