As tactics and techniques behind targeted attacks and advanced threats continue to evolve, having a flexible line of defense is crucial. To do so, leading organizations are enhancing their security posture with the ability to detect and respond to advanced malware, zero-day exploits and attacker behavior that is behind targeted attacks. This presentation will review the major requirements and capabilities needed for a strong cyber-defense against targeted attacks and how IBM® Security Network Intrusion Prevention System appliances, IBM Security QRadar SIEM and Trend Micro security products work together to provide a real-time defense.

        Description: During 2014, there was an ongoing cascade of significant data breaches as a result of targeted attacks. Some of the largest organizations in the U.S., including Target, JP Morgan, Home Depot, The United States Post Office, and most recently, Sony Pictures, have had sensitive data, intellectual property and communications stolen. This session briefly defines what targeted attacks are; how they are designed and executed; and illustrates how custom attacks need a custom defense.

        Sophisticated attempts to access IP and advanced DDoS attacks combined with an environment encouraging open information exchange make university networks some of the most complex to defend. It is a herculean task to fight today’s Advanced Persistent Threats (APT’s) that can destroy an organization’s environment, brand and business. What if you could create a system that acts the same way our body’s immune system does to combat the onslaught of malicious viruses? Learn how the University of New Brunswick (UNB) has developed a smarter security network by combining IBM QRadar and Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery to correlate captured big data and identify correlations to fight the malicious attacks, and respond in real-time.
