How to Survive a Ransomware Attack

In Q3 2016, Kaspersky blocked 821,865 crypto-ransomware attacks on the computers of unique users. In fact, in Q3 2016, we blocked more ransomware attacks than in the whole of 2015!* It's a criminal activity on the rise, with no signs of slowing. But we can provide you with the information needed to ensure your business doesn't fall victim to the threat of ransomware. This webinar covers: the risks of ransomware, from VSB to Enterprise; the current and future landscape of ransomware threats; step-by-step insight into how ransomware works; what you can do to ensure your business is protected.

The Who, What, How, and Why of Cyber Threats in 2017

We face a future of increasingly subtle and sophisticated threat factors; a world where traditional clues and indicators are no longer enough on their own to identify and block attacks; where information is wielded as a weapon, misdirection is king, and global networks of connected devices can be used to paralyse the Internet. What does this mean for business in 2017? Learn about the top predictions for 2017, as identified by Kaspersky's Global Research & Analysis Team (GReAT). Kaspersky UK's Principal Security Researcher, David Emm, shall present the Who, What, How and Why in Kaspersky's predictions for 2017 and will cover the following: the business sectors we predict will be particularly targeted in 2017 and who will attack them; the data, behaviour and habits that will expose businesses to increasingly sophisticated threat factors; the technical methods through which businesses will be targeted; what we predict to be the endgame of 2017's cyber-criminals.

Could Your Business Survive a Ransomware Attack?

The days of simple malware – developed by amateurs that were just looking to make mischief – are long gone. Organized crime lies behind much of today’s malware… and the focus is on making money. Recent high profile ransomware attacks such as CryptoLocker are estimated to have hit more than 500,000 users and earned the cybercriminals behind it an estimated £20M before they were taken down. In this special webinar event, global security expert David Emm from the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team will present key findings on the risks that ransomware can cause to businesses of all sizes and what you can do to ensure your business is protected. Security researcher Liviu Itoafa (also of the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team) will then share a special step by step insight into exactly how ransomware works.

Don't Be in Denial: Rise of the DDoS Attack

For little more than the price of a latte in your favourite coffee shop, almost anyone can purchase a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack capable of taking down a high-end e-commerce site for an hour. With recent calculations from leading analytical firm IDC showing that the cost of this period of downtime can cost a company between £5,000 and £30,000, this is definitely not a risk to be ignored.

A DDoS attack is one of the most popular weapons in the modern cybercriminals’ arsenal, which aims to make information systems such as websites or databases impossible for regular users to access normally. There can be different motives behind launching DDoS attacks, ranging from cyber-hooliganism to dirty competition practices or even extortion.

In this special webinar event, European DDoS expert, Sven Sellen will discuss the risks that businesses face from DDoS attacks as well as solutions on how to keep your online presence secured against them.

2016 Cyber Security Predictions: The End of the World for APT’s

As 2015 comes to an end and 2016 begins, we have the opportunity to take stock of how the cyber-threat landscape has evolved and to share our predictions for the coming year in this special webinar event. David Emm, Senior Security Expert in Kaspersky's Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT), will shed light on the most noteworthy discoveries from the past year as well provide exclusive insights on how cyber security threats will evolve over the coming 12 months and beyond.

The outlook for this rapidly-evolving field of study is thought-provoking and will continue to present us with interesting challenges for business of all sizes. Sticking to robust and unambiguous metrics, David will avoid the kind of science-fiction fear-mongering so often seen, and outline some solid expectations for both the short- and long-term, aiming to give you the intelligence you need to keep your business secure.

The Continued Rise of Mobile Threats and Solutions to Secure Your Business

By the end of 2014 the number of unique mobile-specific malware samples identified had nearly trebled, with almost 500,000 now recorded and the rate of discovery growing exponentially each month.

Mobile and remote working, the growth of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and the demand for businesses to be able to access data on the move, means securing your mobile infrastructure is even more important than ever. Whether its laptops, mobile phones or tablets, the need to ensure your devices are fully included into your security and network management policies is no longer a consideration, but an absolute necessity.

In this webinar, David Emm, Senior Researcher from the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team will share exclusive insights and expertise into the evolution of mobile threats and the challenges organisations of all sizes face. Dave Messett, European Product Manager for Kaspersky will then discuss Kaspersky Mobile Security and MDM (Mobile Device Management) solutions and how you can effectively implement these into your network.

Security for Virtualization: Getting the Balance Right

Virtualisation has transformed the corporate IT environment with the ability to drive enhanced agility and efficiency. At the same time, organisations globally are subject to greater levels of cyber-threat than ever before. It is vital that the IT infrastructure, both physical and virtual, is fully and effectively secured.

The addition of security functionality into any IT system, is going to involve some level of resource consumption. The aim is always to maximise protection whilst minimising performance impact – balancing security and systems efficiency.

In this exclusive webinar from Kaspersky, European Security Expert Dave Messett will discuss the issues an organisation can face in effectively deploying a robust, secure yet agile virtualised infrastructure and how Kaspersky Security for Virtualization can help you to combat these challenges.

Securing the SMB: Cyber Threats Aren’t Just a Big Company Problem

We have all heard of high profile cyber-attacks on major enterprises and governmental organisations, but the risks facing the SMB business environment are just as real and just as damaging. According to the Kaspersky Global IT Risk Report 2014, the average cost of a security breach to an SMB organisation is calculated at approximately £50,000!

Whilst an SMB may not seem like the most obvious target for a cyber-criminal to attack, these kinds of businesses can often have less resources or training in place to help counter this growing threat. In this special webinar session, European security expert, Dave Messett, will provide key insights into the major security trends, how they affect smaller businesses and the difference (and similarities) to larger organisations. Providing insights on ensuring you can effectively understand how employees are working and how this might create risk to the business…. But with the advice and guidance needed to reduce this risk and mitigate any damage to your business.

Rethinking IT Security: Fighting Known, Unknown and Advanced Threats

A day doesn’t go by without news of another major corporate data breach. The increasingly sophisticated and complex threat landscape today calls for a multi-layered approach to provide comprehensive detection and protection against known, unknown, and advanced threats.

In this webinar, European IT Security Expert David Messett will outline threats to businesses today and best practices for protecting your organization, including:

  • The increasing prevalence and sophistication of cyber-threats targeting businesses of all sizes across all industries
  • How malware is often used as a door opener to launch more sophisticated, targeted attacks
  • What security technologies organizations need to defend their IT infrastructure today
