Malware may be the scourge of every IT pro, but in the words of The Art of War, “Know your enemy… and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster."

Did you know that even though new types of malware are constantly under development, they generally fall into only a few broad categories? In this webcast, we'll dive into the most common types of malware and how they actually work:

  • How they find their way into your network
  • How attackers control them remotely
  • How they use your systems for nefarious purposes
  • And most importantly, the security controls you need to effectively defend against and detect malware infections. (Hint: you need more than antivirus!)
