How to Detect System Compromise & Data Exfiltration


Published on

Have you ever wondered how the bad guys actually get control of a system? And, how they convert that system into a data-syphoning droid? Then you won't want to miss our next live demo, where AlienVault security guru Tom D'Aquino will walk you through the steps of a system compromise, including how AlienVault USM detects these nefarious activities every step of the way.

You'll learn:

How attackers exploit vulnerabilities to take control of systems
What they do next to find & exfiltrate valuable data
How to catch them before the damage is done with AlienVault USM
Using a real-world example of a common vulnerability, Tom will show you how USM gives you the evidence you need to stop an attack in its tracks.

    2. 2. @AlienVault About AlienVault AlienVault has unified the security products, intelligence and community essential for mid-sized businesses to defend against today’s modern threats
    3. 3. @AlienVault Threat landscape: Our new reality • More and more organizations are finding themselves in the crosshairs of various bad actors for a variety of reasons. • The number of organizations experiencing high profile breaches is unprecedented. • The “security arms race” cannot continue indefinitely as the economics of securing your organization is stacked so heavily in favor of those launching attacks that incremental security investments are seen as impractical. 84% of organizations breached had evidence of the breach in their log files…
    4. 4. “There are two types of companies that use computers. Victims of crime that know they are victims of crime and victims of crime that don’t have a clue yet.” - James Routh, 2007 CISO Depository Trust Clearing Corporation @AlienVault Prevention is elusive
