Malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) are cyberthreat categories directed at both business and political targets. The attack objectives therefore typically extend beyond immediate financial gain, and compromised systems continue to be of service even after key systems have been compromised and initial data breach goals reached. Malware successfully penetrates enterprises through a variety of vectors, even in the presence of properly designed and maintained defense-in-depth strategies. At the very heart of every attack lies remote control functionality. Criminal operators rely upon this capability in order to navigate to specific hosts within target organizations, exploit and manipulate local systems, and gain continuous access to critical information.

Protecting your organization against malware and APTs poses a challenge that intimidates even the most stalwart security professionals. Leading organizations are solving this problem, however, and today’s speakers will share both the war stories and the solutions in the fight against APTs and how your organization can turn the battle in your favor.
