SFISSA May 2017 Meeting – PBSC Lake Worth, Thursday May 18th 6PM

SFISSA’s May meeting will be on Thursday, May 18th, 2017 at Palm Beach State College Lake Worth campus. The meeting will take place from 6PM to 9:30PM, followed by their usual networking hour.

Presentation One

Cloud-First Malware & Ransomware

Presentation Speaker & Bio
Laz Macias

Cloud services have emerged as the preferred attack vector of some of the most dangerous and innovative cloud malware exploits over the past six months. Why? Because many organizations don’t inspect their cloud traffic for malware, and the same cloud service functionality that dramatically increases productivity (sync, share, etc.) also provides malicious actors with the perfect medium for faster delivery of malware payloads to more targets.

Join Solutions Architect Laz Macias from Netskope for a fascinating look at how malicious actors now design malware and ransomware to make best use of popular cloud services to hide in plain sight, and do more damage in less time. This session will include details from recent malware campaigns discovered or documented by Netskope Threat Research Labs, as well as an overview of best practices for defending against cloud-borne threats.
