Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd, the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced their speaking sessions at RSA Conference 2013. Check Point representatives Tomer Teller and Bob Hinden will be presenting this year, focusing on advanced malware detection and smart grid security, respectively.
WHAT: "Detecting the 1%: Advanced Targeted Malware Detection"
The meteoric rise of specialized, targeted malware can catch even the most experienced security experts off guard. These super-stealthy cyber-attacks can defeat the best anti-virus/anti-intrusion systems in the world. This session provides an overview of existing defense mechanisms, including how they can be defeated, and suggests new techniques that can be used to detect and mitigate against advanced threats.
WHO: Tomer Teller, Security Evangelist at Check Point
WHEN: Tuesday, February 26th, 3:50-4:50 PM
WHERE: Moscone Center, Room 124
747 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA
WHAT: "The Security Threat to Smart Grid is Worse than We Think"
The need to secure smart grid is obvious. After all, who wants hackers to have the ability to easily turn off all power? Recent malware like Stuxnet and Flame that target critical infrastructures are good examples of the looming threat. The challenge is to secure smart grid in a way that can keep up with quickly evolving threats.
WHO: Bob Hinden, Co-Inventor of IPv6 and Check Point Fellow
WHEN: Thursday, February 28th, 1:40-2:00 PM
WHERE: Moscone Center, Room 135
747 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA
"We've seen the potentially disastrous impact of attacks on the power infrastructure in the past year," said Bob Hinden, co-inventor of IPv6 and Check Point fellow. “In fact the Department of Homeland Security Critical Infrastructure CERT shows that over 40% of reported infrastructure attacks were against Energy related infrastructure. The imperative to secure our smart grids from cyber attacks is clearer now than ever before."
