March 2016 Edition
Key topics: Threat intelligence sharing and Adwind Java-based malware

With the RSA Conference 2016 behind us, it’s time review key takeaways from the event, take stock, and determine what we can do to strengthen our security defenses in the face of today’s complex advanced attacks. Enterprise security teams are finding that traditional defenses often miss sophisticated threats that slip under the radar. They are now turning their attention to threat intelligence sharing as a way to gain insights into current and future attacks and improve detection and response.

Read the  Mcafee Labs Threats Report: March 2016 to learn what security practitioners think about sharing threat intelligence and how obstacles to realizing the full benefits of shared threat intelligence are beginning to fall away. In addition, you’ll learn about how to protect yourself against a rapidly growing threat—the Adwind Java-based backdoor Trojan targeting platforms that support Java files.

Key topics:

  • Threat intelligence sharing: Perceived value in sharing threat intelligence, impediments to sharing, and new sharing standards.
  • Adwind: How it is propagated through spam email attachments and what you can do to detect and prevent this malware and its variants from harming your organization.
