As InfoSec Insider continues to offer up a relatable take on challenges that security practitioners face while encouraging them to think about problems differently, we’re also constantly searching for new ways to package this content for you. That’s why we’re pleased to introduce a new educational series.

Hosted by subject matter experts Ed Moyle and Raef Meeuwisse, this series features their take on a prominent topic in the industry, but goes one step further by incorporating a “how to” component where you get a step-by-step look at how to perform actions related to the topic discussed. This first edition covers cryptocurrency.

While it’s been a hot topic for quite some time, breaking out onto the scene and gaining popularity no thanks to the activity surrounding the cybercriminal underground, there are aspects of it you should know about as a security practitioner.

In the full video webcast below, Ed and Raef discuss cryptocurrency and what it means for enterprise security, but specifically dive into the ins and outs of cryptocurrency mining malware and cryptojacking.

To learn more about similar threats and how to address them, be sure to attend the upcoming InfoSec World Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida.
