National Cyber Security Awareness Month Webinars
There will be a number of educational webinars made available throughout the month of October on information security.
With all the technology tools and resources made available to us the biggest and most challenging resource is us, people. Everyone needs to understand and accept responsibility in keeping ourselves, our campus and our families safe from cyber thieves. It is "Our Shared Responsibility" and this month we will look into how to achieve that responsibility.
SANS webinars require registration, but registration is free. Instructions to access the SANS Information Security Webcasts.

Introduction to Behavioral Analysis of Malicious Software - Featuring Lenny Zeltser
Knowing how to analyze malware has become a critical skill for incident responders and forensic investigators. A good way to get started with such efforts involves examining how malicious software behaves in a controlled laboratory environment. In this introductory briefing, Lenny Zeltser demonstrates key aspects of this process, walking you through behavioral analysis of a malware specimen by using several free tools.
You will see practical techniques in action and understand how behavioral analysis of malware will help you to triage the incident to assess key capabilities of the malicious software. You will also learn how to determine ways of identifying this malware on systems in your environment by establishing indicators of compromise (IOCs). Join this briefing to start learning how to turn malware inside out! It'll be fun.

SANS Analytics and Intelligence Survey Results Part I: The Risk Landscape - Featuring Dave Shackleford and Richard Park
During June and July, SANS conducted a survey that was taken by 647 individuals to explore how organizations are dealing with their security data for better analysis and detection. In this first installment of our two-part survey webcast series, Dave Shackleford will discuss how organizations perceive their risk and the notion of big data analytics and intelligence. Learn what data respondent organizations are collecting, where and how they're collecting it, and impediments to finding that needle in a haystack among all the security data they now have in hand. (A hint: Inability to collect the right data to make associations and lack of context are two most cited problems with catching security breaches today, according to results.)
