Company Details Best Practices for Identifying Malicious Network Activity
KENNEBUNK, ME – April 30, 2014 – Plixer International, Inc., a leader in NetFlow and IPFIX analytics and network threat detection, today announced Thomas Pore, director of IT & services, will be speaking at this year’s 2014 U.S. Cyber Crime Conference.
Pore’s discussion entitled, “How to Implement Flow Technologies for Network Threat Detection,” will be held on May 1st from 3:00-3:50pm at the National Conference Center, Dulles Airport, Va.
The U.S. Cyber Crime Conference provides both hands–on digital forensics training and an interactive forum for cyber professionals to network. The conference covers the full spectrum of topics facing defenders, as well as law enforcement responders. Over 160 breakout sessions will cover all aspects of computer crime, including intrusion investigations, cybercrime law, digital forensics, information assurance, along with research and development, and testing of digital forensic tools.
“With cybercrime accounting for billions in losses, it is clear security implementations have left openings for criminals,” Pore said. “Even when companies deploy cyber threat detection, botnet and malware can still enter, disguising itself as normal network traffic to transfer source code and other vital company secrets. Watching outbound network traffic with flow technologies provides a critical network threat detection layer that significantly improves the discovery of malicious activity.”
Pore will discuss how flow technologies can be implemented to:
- Identify malicious activity within and from outside an organization.
- Utilize root-cause indicator collection for actionable intelligence when searching for additional compromise areas and lateral movement.
- Find Ransomware – highlighting a real-world investigation case study that pinpointed the root cause of infection including URLs, timeframes, encoded malicious calls, beaconing, and more.
