'Minority Report' Security: Predicting & Stopping Targeted Threats with Big Data

Targeted malware campaigns have evolved significantly from traditional simple inclusion of malware as non-disguised executable files to more social engineered “phishing” style attacks. More than 30% of unwanted email at peak times coming into an organization are seen to have malicious intent – malicious URLs, attachments and credential-seeking attacks. Repeated Longlining campaigns have flooded organizations with phishing threats by working around existing security controls; and spear phishing has been responsible for initial compromises in 95% of targeted attacks and APTs according to the 2013 Verizon Data Breach report . A new Big Data approach becomes critical in stopping the impact of these on incident management, brand impact, and data loss.

We’ll try to cover:

•             Typical attacker tactics that are involved in creating targeted and Longlining attacks

•             Findings from recent research conducted by Proofpoint security analysts

•             A Big Data approach to predict-and-protect organizations before user’s click-and-compromise
