WHAT: " New Frontiers in Security" WHEN: Tuesday, February 25, 2:40 – 3:40 PM WHERE: Moscone West, Room #3018 WHO: Kevin Mandia, SVP and COO, FireEye

Industry experts Kevin Mandia (Founder and Former CEO of Mandiant) with Ted Schlein (Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers), Nate Fick (Founder and CEO of Endgame), and Lieutenant General Ken Minihan (Paladin Capital, Former Director of NSA) discuss why and how organizations must rethink their security approach as well as how companies should prioritize to protect themselves today as well as tomorrow.

Malware has a very short lifetime. But how short is it? Zheng Bu will present his study on the surprisingly fat-head, long-tail lifetime of malware and the challenges that arise from this. With the anti-virus industry presenting a reactive model that performs very badly on the fat-head, Bu will demonstrate a possible mitigation plan based on the lengthy life of malware.

WHAT: " DLL Side-Loading: A Thorn in the Side of the Anti-Virus (AV) Industry" WHEN: Wednesday, February 26, 12:00 – 12:20 PM WHERE: Moscone West, Room #3006 WHO: Amanda Stewart, Malware Research Engineer, FireEye

What is DLLSide-Loading? How do you recognize it? How do you prevent it? Malware research engineer Amanda Stewart will dig into the techniques that sneak malware past anti-virus scanners and how APT developers used this technique in a highly targeted attack against a Fortune 50 company last year.
