With the RSA Conference and Security B-Sides San Francisco just around the corner, I’d like to invite readers of the blog to a webinar I’m cohosting tomorrow morning with Sonicwall’s Daniel Ayoub. The talk, titled Today’s Threats Are Overachievers–Are You Prepared to Respond, will feature a deep dive into examples of really fresh malware attacks and their aftermath.

The talk topic is especially intriguing because Sonicwall’s technology is capable of eliminating the vast majority of known threats that traverse a network. However, modern threats evolve more rapidly than the speed at which even the best systems can adapt and block those threats. Those infections which make it through the sieve are more dangerous, because once they run the gauntlet, their presence may remain concealed for some time, posing an ever-greater risk. The current threat climate is such that being prepared to respond to an attack is fast becoming a requirement, a must-do rather than a nice-to-do. Having a complete, easily searched, reconstructable record of network traffic makes it easy to answer the “how long” and “what was stolen” questions that keep IT people awake at night.

If you’re interested in learning about the intersection of social engineering and malware techniques, and what you can do about it, come and check it out. For those following along on Twitter, please use the hashtag #solera if you post about it. Thanks!
