ISMG’s Executive Briefings focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Briefings give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
WannaCry and Crimeware as a Service: How to Respond to This Security Game-Changer
Over the past decade, cyber threats have evolved from discrete, customized strikes by individual attackers to mass-market exploits developed by organized cybercrime gangs. WannaCry ransomware outbreak is but the latest example.
But this trend gives security leaders a new defensive opportunity. After all, many of these criminal exploits prey upon a finite set of software vulnerabilities. If you know which vulnerabilities are most often attacked, you can set your security controls accordingly.
But what are the common vulnerabilities? How can you keep up with the evolution of crimeware as a service?
If you are looking for new strategies and solutions to help answer these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive executive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- Keeping up with the latest insight on crimeware as a service,
- Knowing which core vulnerabilities are most exploited, and
- Using real-time threat intelligence from the dark web to identity and mitigate these vulnerabilities.
