Security White Papers

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

While vulnerability assessments are essential, considering vulnerability data in a vacuum greatly limits your ability to prioritize your action plan in an effective way. Without the context of which vulnerabilities are the most severe, which are actively being targeted, which are on critical assets, etc, you may waste time checking things off the list without actually improving security. Join us for this session to learn how to integrate threat intelligence into your vulnerability management strategy.

Event logs provide valuable information to troubleshoot operational errors, and investigate potential security exposures. They are literally the bread crumbs of the IT world. As a result, a commonly-used approach is to collect logs from everything connected to the network "just in case" without thinking about what data is actually useful. But, as you're likely aware, the "collect everything" approach can actually make threat detection and incident response more difficult as you wade through massive amounts of irrelevant data. Join us for this session to learn practical strategies for defining what you actually need to collect (and why) to help you improve threat detection and incident response, and satisfy compliance requirements.

Do you feel alone? No resources? No help? If you are like many security practitioners faced with a mountain of tasks each day and a small (or non-existent) team to help, prioritization and efficiency are key. Join Joe Schreiber, Solutions Architect for AlienVault for this practical session outlining habits to get the most out of your limited resources. In this session, you'll learn how to develop routines to efficiently manage your environment, avoid time-sucks, and determine what you can do by yourself and where you need help.

Attackers are becoming increasingly skilled at planting malicious code on websites frequented by their desired targets, commonly called "watering hole" attacks. These can be very difficult to detect since they happen as users are going about their normal business. Join us for a live demo showing an example of such an attack, and how to detect it immediately using AlienVault USM. You'll learn: • Common browser vulnerabilities used to execute these attacks • What attackers do next to take control of the system • How to catch it before the attacker moves further into your network

The state of threat intelligence in the information security community is still very immature. Many organizations are still combating threats in a reactive manner, only learning what they're dealing with, well...when they're dealing with it. There is a wealth of information in the community, and many organizations have been gathering data about attackers and trends for years. How can we share that information, and what kinds of intelligence are most valuable? In this presentation, we'll start with a brief overview of AlienVault's Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), and then we'll discuss attack trends and techniques seen in enterprise networks today, with supporting data from AlienVault OTX. We'll also take a look at some new models for collaboration and improving the state of threat intelligence going forward.

As cyber attacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations are investing more into incident detection and response capabilities. Event monitoring and correlation technologies and security operations are often tied to incident handling responsibilities, but the number of attack variations is staggering, and many organizations are struggling to develop incident detection and response processes that work for different situations. In this webcast, we'll outline the most common types of events and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that naturally feed intelligent correlation rules, and walk through a number of different incident types based on these. We'll also outline the differences in response strategies that make the most sense depending on what types of incidents may be occurring. By building a smarter incident response playbook, you'll be better equipped to detect and respond more effectively in a number of scenarios.

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security. Join AlienVault for this session to learn: • The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated • Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them • Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation • How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most
