Today, spear phishing attacks remain a cybercriminal's primary entrypoint into top commercial and government networks. On Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST, Internet pioneer and DNS expert Dr. Paul Vixie, CEO of Farsight Security, Inc., will provide an overview of the tactics and techniques used by cybercriminals in spear phishing attacks that you won't want to miss. He'll tackle how cybercriminals are increasing the use of "throw-away" domain names where they employ malicious URLs for only brief periods of time, enabling them to fly under the radar of URL blacklists and reputation analysis technology.

As part of the webinar, Dr. Vixie will also discuss technical advancements in the fight against spear phishing such as Farsight’s recently-announced Newly Observed Domains (NOD), a new set of data solutions that provide real-time actionable insights on the basis of the age of domain names, as well as other steps businesses can take to significantly reduce their spear phishing risk. Frederic Bourget, CTO of Netmail, will discuss how Netmail plans to integrate Newly Observed Domains (NOD) to thwart spear phishing with the Netmail Email Management Platform.
