Cybersecurity: Collaborate, Comply, Conquer.

When the InfoSec community started talking about advanced persistent threats, the fact was that the attacks weren't actually all that advanced. A lot of damage was done using run-of-the-mill spearphishing. In the last several months, however, we've seen genuinely advanced malware appearing with greater frequency. This virtual seminar looks at the latest threats and how they work, along with strategies for mitigating these threats.

Join us on 18 March from 8:15AM to 4:15PM EDT (UTC–4) to:

  • Connect with thousands of your peers from across the globe
  • Earn 5 FREE CPE hours without the cost of travel
  • Ask questions directly to industry experts and speakers
  • Enhance your professional knowledge

Education Sessions

Session 1: Global Cybersecurity: New and Proposed Rules, Regulations Facing Modern Industry

Presented by: Jeffrey Ritter, Founder of Waters Edge Consulting in Reston, VA

From the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act to the EU's Cybersecurity Strategy to the Australian Internet Security Initiative, there's a steady stream of cybersecurity-related executive orders, commission reports and proposed legislation coursing all over the world. There are also important differences in what's deployed in different regions—consider for example credit cards with chips versus magnetic stripes. All this creates a vast amount of new cybersecurity rules and regulations for modern organizations, especially those operating on a global scale. We'll take a look at how the evolving global cybersecurity landscape will significantly change business operations, and offer best practices to help avoid cybercrime.

Session 2: The Other Advanced Attacks: DNS/NTP Amplification and Careto

Presented by: Mike Chapple, Senior Director for Enterprise Support Services at the University of Notre Dame

This session gives you a list of things besides spearphishing to worry about. You may think DDoS is old hat, but there’s a new spin on how to do it every month, including (to take one example) spoofing network time protocol (NTP) packets. And, sure, there’s a secure version of DNS out there, but since just about nobody is using it, it’s a field day out there. If those aren’t enough, 2014 is shaping up to be the year that the APIs that make all those cool hipster social sites interconnect are going to come under serious attack. Since your development teams are using (and creating) these APIs too, it’s not something you can ignore.

Session 3: Industrial Cybersecurity: Is There a Cyber-Tsunami in Waiting?

Presented by: Samuel Linares , CISA, CISM, CGEIT, CRISC, Director of the Industrial Cybersecurity Center (CCI)

Description of the current socio-economic situation and the impact of the Critical Infrastructures Protection and Industrial Control Systems Security (or its absence) in our life (personal and professional), in our organizations and in our countries.

  • Linking Critical Infrastructures Protection and Industrial Cybersecurity: Understanding the risk. Analysis of the link between the industrial and corporate environments and its impact in key organizations for the survival of a country.
  • Current situation of the Industrial Security. Study and analysis of the convergence between industrial and corporate systems (or traditional IT), the impact, threat evolution, etc. Analysis of the security in industrial systems.
  • Organizational and Management Aspects: IT Manager vs. CSO/CISO vs. Plant Manager vs. Manufacturing Manager. Human aspects of industrial environments security and critical infrastructures protection.
  • Key facts (earthquakes) in our environment: Stuxnet, Duqu, Project Basecamp, CIP regulation, Smart Grid, Cyber Security Reports, Horizon 2020, ISA 99, Flame…Today’s Industrial Cybersecurity Landscape in depth analysis: Tsunami is arriving.

Session 4: Customized Malware—How to Address the "Invisible" Threat

Presented by: John Moynihan, CGEIT, CRISC, President and Founder of Minuteman Governance

This session will examine how organizations of all sizes are being compromised by a variety of rapidly evolving, increasingly sophisticated malware attacks. We will discuss the challenge of mitigating the risk posed by customized malware and how best to address the proliferation of undetectable variants—malware that has been customized to evade traditional security technologies.

The session will reinforce the need to adopt a multifaceted approach to mitigate these risks, combining technical and non-technical controls. Drawing on the speaker's experience in remediating high profile data breaches, participants will be provided with sanitized examples of actual security incidents and the situations that led to these incidents.


Today’s session will:

  • Define the current global landscape
  • Discuss nation strategies
  • Discuss the malware market
  • Present case examples
  • Examine next steps

Further Insight: Participants may submit questions during the live Q&A sessions that follow each presentation.
