WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "You Can't Respond If You Can't See: Building Sophisticated Detection Mechanisms Leveraging Patterns of Compromise" on Thursday, August 20, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
In the last several years, information security forensics and incident response teams have been fighting a losing battle. The attacks are coming more frequently, they're getting more sophisticated, and we always seem to be a step behind our adversaries. Despite this, we're learning some lessons along the way.
The use of specific indicators of compromise (IOCs) to look for intrusion evidence has helped us, and we're getting better all the time. Unfortunately, we're not getting better fast enough, and we need to adopt some new approaches in order to be more effective at combating the advanced attacks we're seeing today. In this webinar, Dave Shackleford, senior SANS instructor and founder and principal consultant of Voodoo Security, will discuss:
- How indicators of compromise (IOCs) are proving useful in helping defenders discover and respond to advanced attacks
- Why we need to build on IOCs with the concept of "patterns of compromise" to develop more effective defense tactics
- How information sharing and threat intelligence will enable information security teams to detect and respond faster and more effectively than ever
