Given recent high-profile incidents, cyber security has quickly risen to the top of the priority list for many organizations, including governments. As with many organizations these days, government information technology and security is migrating to the cloud. As government and public education entities migrate to Office 365, Google Mail or other solutions for their primary email management service, they’re also looking for email security that delivers advanced threat protection, and this requires a service that is FedRAMP authorized. FireEye CTO Grady Summers spoke with FireEye Global Govt CTO, Tony Cole and Risk Management Lead, Stacey Ziegler on how FireEye will support the government as it moves to the cloud.

In this podcast, Dan Scali, senior manager for Mandiant consulting and Grady Summers, FireEye Chief Technology Officer, discuss key issues in critical infrastructure and industrial control systems. Bank data centers, nuclear power plants, and water plants make up this niche area of information security that’s quickly gained increased importance with recent high profile breaches. Dan covers some of the vulnerabilities these organizations have, including lack of network segmentation and patching, and how this allows everything from crimeware to nation state attacks to threaten the integrity of critical systems. Organizations of all sizes need a pragmatic approach to security by adopting holistic security programs, employing enterprise wide monitoring, and ensuring they have incident response plans in place. Dan discusses some of the ways Mandiant consultants are helping these organizations in these areas including program development and non-invasive ICS health checks.

Detecting today’s attacks is difficult. The attackers are more sophisticated, better funded, and better organized. The attacks themselves are more targeted - 80% of observed malware shows up just once; 68% are used in only one organization. Even more importantly, in many cases, malware isn’t even involved in the attacks, and the preponderance of tactics have never been seen before. Because this sophistication is seen across every industry, companies of all sizes, and every motivation from espionage, ransomware, nation-state to hacktivism, every organization is susceptible. A well-designed architecture needs to detect even the most sophisticated attacks, especially those designed to evade defensive mechanisms. To avoid missing true threats or investing resources on inaccurate alerts, it must detect without the noise generated from false positives. And of course, alerts must come with the context to prioritize investigations and design the proper response. Learn about the latest threats and techniques that FireEye sees in the threat landscape, common pitfalls when designing a detection architecture and our latest innovations to detect the undetectable.
