Effective Security for the Public Sector – Beyond the Fundamentals

Today’s threat actors are more persistent and creative than ever. While anti-virus and firewalls are a good start, an effective information security program needs to be more sophisticated to protect your organization from threat actors intent on stealing sensitive data, causing disruption of services or hacktivism.

Join this webcast to learn how a strong cybersecurity program can protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive data from theft, respond to ever–changing compliance regulations, and why an incident response plan is critical to risk management.

4 Reasons Next-Generation Antivirus Should Be Your Next Managed Service

There seems to be no shortage of threats these days with attackers constantly innovating and combining different techniques with classic malware.

New ransomware variants, targeted espionage campaigns, and attacks that don’t use malware at all are just a few threats that put your organization at risk. As each new attack generates global headlines, it can feel a bit overwhelming.

It’s increasingly clear that the signature-based approach of traditional antivirus (AV) can no longer provide the protection needed to keep attackers off your endpoints. Join John Collins, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Principal Architect and Mike Viscuso, Carbon Black CTO, as they discuss how managed Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) goes beyond malware prevention to ensure that organizations of all sizes stay out of the security headlines and one step ahead of emerging cyber threats.

You will learn:

  • •What are the indicators that I need NGAV?
  • •How do I know when it is time to make the move from traditional AV to Next Generation Anti- Virus?
  • •Why is managed NGAV better able to address Ransomware, PowerShell and WMI threats?
  • •What managed NGAV can do for you

It's About Time. Quantifying the Value of Time in Threat Detection and Incident Response

The stakes for enterprise investments in threat detection and incident response capabilities are getting higher, as evidenced by empirical data from successful cyber attacks detected and remediated by Secureworks, a Dell Technologies company.

The sheer growth and complexity of the technical threat landscape and vulnerability landscape means that merely keeping up is no longer enough. In cybersecurity, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain.

Join Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for Aberdeen Group, and John Collins, Operations Manager for the SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Special Operations Team and Advisory Systems Engineer for threat intelligence services, to gain fact-based insights into:

  • Real use cases where time to detect has impacted the business outcome
  • Trends in threat actors and motivations – and how this affects your strategies for protection, detection, and response
  • Quantifying the value and ROI of faster detection and response – for both attacks on availability (e.g., unplanned downtime or slowdown), and attacks on confidentiality (e.g., a data breach)
  • The increasingly important role played by third party threat detection and incident response in this rapidly evolving context

When a Good Security Tech 'Breaks Bad'

When you have spent significant financial and human resources to configure and protect your network and digital assets, purchased several new security tools and software, and now you’re wondering if those technologies will be able to protect your organization against potential cyber intrusions.

Join this webcast and hear from Daniel Gortze, Delivery Manager for the Secureworks Incident Response & Forensics Consulting Team, who will examine real-life scenarios in which security technologies failed, and even worst cases where threat actors used an organizations' own security technologies against them. Dan will not focus on the pros and cons of particular technologies, but rather examine the need for proper security architecture and the residual risk posed by the required pervasive visibility of many security technologies. He will also share experience and insights from the field.

Key Topics Covered Include:

  • Examples of threat actor abuse of security technology in real-world Incidents
  • Anti-Virus Abuse
  • Exploiting Whitelisting Misconfiguration
  • The Human Weak link
  • Lessons learned and actionable insights

Analysis Paralysis: Billions of Logs to Incidents that Matter

Most organizations have set up a security model that includes a first layer of security event management, responsible for capturing of logs, notification, filtering and some level of correlation. However, with the escalating number of users and logs from more and more devices, making sense of the noise and translating them into incidents that matter can be a daunting task. In this webcast, Tony Merritt, SecureWorks Managing Principal, will cover how to leverage logs and tactics to integrate the proper incident response.

Topics covered include:

  • Sensing: The challenge of ever increasing in-bound noise and priorities
  • Improving Sensing: What logs and events matter? How do you ensure you have visibility?
  • Sense Making: Not all logs are created equal. The importance of correlation, business context, rules and use cases to determine if the incident matters.
  • Decisions Making: An event has passed a threshold of incident viability. How do you connect logs and tactics into actionable response?

To keep pace with an evolving threat landscape, government agencies should adopt a risk-based approach to security.

Case Study

With aging security policies, a state's umbrella IT agency wanted to strengthen cyber safeguards with policies updated to NIST federal government standards.

Fort Mill Schools strengthened its IT security to protect against threats and to safeguard student, teacher and staff data, using SecureWorks solutions.

Datasheet

Technical Tests are hands-on tests by consultants that evaluate your application or network security.

To stay ahead of advanced adversaries targeting your organization, you need the earliest possible warning of a compromise on your endpoints by combining up-to-the-minute threat intelligence, expertise, and powerful technology.

Advanced Endpoint Threat Dramatically reduce the effort required to stop advanced threats that target your endpoints and protect your users no matter where or how they work.

SecureWorks offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of security solutions designed to help organizations take full advantage of a Cloud Service Provider including Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Next-generation firewalls and IDS devices give organizations an important security layer, but keeping those devices updated with current threat intelligence is a challenge. It requires a heavy investment of time and resources to maximize the value of investment in these products.

Numerous security measures can be implemented to create an effective information security program, but there are two tools you shouldn't be without: Network Intrusion Detection System devices (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention System devices (IPS).

The risk of a cyberattack cannot be eliminated - even for the most security-savvy of organizations. It's not a matter of if, but when a cyberattack will occur. In addition to steps taken to prevent attacks, you must also be able to detect and have a plan to quickly respond should you be the victim o...
