Today, every business and government is a target for data theft. Research shows 100% of all advanced attacks are a result of credential compromises and organizations are racing to add new layers of security to help detect and respond. But, are you still leaving the door open to advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks?
According to the Common Computing Security Standards (CCSS) Forum, attacks on keys and certificates in the first five months of 2013 are exploding at an annualized growth rate of over 600%. In just one month, Symantec identified over 800 different malware packages designed to steal keys and certificates.
In addition to learning more about how we’ve given attackers the ideal vulnerability that we have no means to control or respond to, you will also learn:
- Why trust established by keys and certificates is the perfect target of attack
- How keys and certificates are poisoned against your organization
- How the lack of visibility and inability to respond make keys and certificates the ideal APT attack vector
- Alarming metrics on the cost of failed trust
- What strategies can help improve the effectiveness of your APT strategy
Failing to get a handle on this gaping hole means leaving the door open to APTs. Join Infosecurity magazine, Dr. Larry Ponemon, and Kevin Bocek, Venafi Head of Threat Research, as we discuss research on cybercriminals actively exploiting keys and certificates, how even today’s best APT strategies still don’t address this problem, and how new research show the tremendous impact and real danger of failing to take action now.
