As malware becomes increasingly prevalent and sophisticated, a lot of organizations are losing in the fight against cybercrime
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Over the last year, organizations once again saw the volume and sophistication of malware dramatically increase. Today, more than 1.6 million new malware signatures are identified each month and the volume of zero-day attacks continues to rise. The days of pranksters conducting minor hacks have been replaced by extensive cyber criminal syndicates looking to steal personal information and intellectual property for financial gain. This increase and shift in intent has led Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, to host a webcast titled “Paul Henry’s 2011 Malware Trends.”
Henry is one of the world’s foremost global information security and computer forensic experts. With more than 20 years of experience, Henry is a seasoned speaker, author and contributor for some of the leading security events and publications and is a SANS Certified Instructor. His technical background includes MCP+I, MCSE, CCSA, CCSE, CFSA, CFSO, CISSP,-ISSAP, CISM, CISA, CIFI, CCE certifications. Given this breadth of expertise, Henry is well qualified to identify the threat trends this year will bring. In this webcast, he will discuss these malware trends and more importantly, outline the practical steps organizations can take to better protect themselves. Specifically, Henry will examine:
- The unending arms race with financially motivated “bad guys;”
- Evolving paths into corporate networks, including social media and removable devices;
- Why traditional defenses are not effective; and,
- How to ensure an effective depth-in-defense security strategy that includes application whitelisting.
“As malware becomes increasingly prevalent and sophisticated, a lot of organizations are losing in the fight against cybercrime,” said Henry. “What so many don’t understand is that the security solutions of yesterday, such as antivirus, are no longer effective as standalone defense strategies. A layered approach that includes Intelligent Whitelisting is much more effective.”
Henry’s webcast will take place on Feb. 23 at 11:00 a.m. ET. To register for this webcast, please visit: 2011 Malware Trends.
