Join us for our next Symantec Endpoint Protection User Group meeting in Melbourne, on Tuesday 22 November.

Stop Today’s Advanced Persistent Threats in Their Tracks

On October 14, Symantec started analysis on a new threat called Duqu, which seems to be the precursor to a future Stuxnet-like attack. Parts of Duqu are nearly identical to Stuxnet, but it has a completely different purpose. Duqu's purpose is to gather intelligence and assets like design documents that will give the attackers the insights they need to mount a future, highly-targeted attack on organisations such as industrial control facilities.

As this latest threat demonstrates, today’s cyber attacks are sophisticated, targeted, and rapidly mutating. Known as advanced persistent threats (APTs), this malware is designed to penetrate even well-protected networks and to stealthily communicate with an attacker. APTs can be used to passively collect passwords and IDs—or to actively allow an attacker to control or even damage remote systems. Because APTs are so hard to spot, they often infect computers for months or even years before being revealed.

Attend this session to learn what steps you need to take to protect against today’s advanced persistent threats, and how Symantec can help.
