Attacking the gap and preparing for the new frontiers in security is our focus for the 2014 RSA Conference. Around the show floor, in our booth, and in the conference tracks, you’ll hear from FireEye experts on how to address this new frontier. We’ll have updates on the latest threats from our research teams as well as live demonstrations of our new FireEye Security Platform. Find us at our booth and make sure to catch our research team presenting throughout the conference:
- Kevin Mandia, SVP and COO for FireEye, Inc., will be presenting on the New Frontiers in Security on Tuesday, February 25 at 2:40 PM. Listen in as Kevin joins a group of industry experts to discuss how organizations must rethink their security approach in this Security Mash-Up panel session.
- Also on Tuesday, February 25 at 1:20 PM, FireEye’s Zheng Bu Vice President, FireEye Research Labs will present Twilight of Legacy AV Models – A Different Long Tail Story. Malware has a very short lifetime. But how short is it? The findings may surprise you and while large portions of malware objects only appear once, the lifetime of malware forms a very fat-head long-tail chart. The anti-virus industry presents a reactive model, and it performs very badly on the fat-head. In this session Bu will present the study, the challenge and a possible mitigation plan.
- On Wednesday, February 26 at 12 PM, Amanda Stewart, Malware Research Engineer at FireEye, will dig into techniques to sneak malware part Anti-Virus scanners. APT developers used this technique in a highly-targeted attack against a Fortune 50 company last year. Learn more during this must-see technical session,DLL Side-Loading: A Thorn in the Side of the Anti-Virus (AV) Industry.
- One year after the well-known APT 1 Report, Kevin Mandia will discuss the fallout from exposing China’s espionage effort during the State of the Hack: One Year after the APT1 Report technical session. While there will be other sessions at RSA 2014 around the industry changing APT1 report, come hear directly from the source on the latest approaches attackers are using to compromise organizations and what organizations should be doing to narrow their security gap. Kevin will be speaking on Thursday, February 27 at 3:55 PM.
