COLUMBIA, Md. – Sept. 7, 2017— EventTracker, a leader in security information and event management (SIEM), today announced that CEO A. N. Ananth will present on the latest techniques in hunting modern malware and pervasive ransomware at the ISACA Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) Conference, Oct. 2-4 in Washington, D.C.
The current threatscape is evolving rapidly, but many IT security heads and administrators are too busy managing operations and ensuring the company’s ongoing security efforts, that they miss key indicators that their network has been compromised.
As malware and ransomware attacks continue to advance and increase, it has become crucial for enterprises to be able to assess and detect digital threat incidents quickly and easily for the security of their infrastructures.
We’ve seen global ransomware outbreaks like WannaCry and NotPetya cripple companies across every industry and other strands of malware leech sensitive credit card data from POS terminals. What’s to stop a combination of the two– ransomware attacking POS systems, rendering retailers unable to even function until they pay the ransom or restore their data? Cybercriminals are always innovating, and this could be next. It’s time to find out the means of attack companies can use to hunt malware and stop it before it strikes.
Ananth’s session, “Hunting Modern Malware – the Latest Techniques,” covers:
- How modern malware and ransomware enter and spread through your network
- Best methods of detecting malware and finding hidden copies (polymorphic, mutating, or dormant malware hunting)
- What to do after you’ve detected a potential attack
- Tools to consider to improve threat detection
