Early Warning provides information about malicious programs and related configurations, which are being prepared, or actually used in an attack against a specific organization or its customers (a targeted threat).
The ability to gather the latest information about emerging threats in cyberspace plays a crucial role in the protection of company data assets. Detailed knowledge of security threats provides companies with valuable overview about the present-day risks they are exposed to. By knowing more about these security risks, it makes it possible to actively prevent potential damages, or at least to implement the necessary measures to mitigate them. ESET Threat Intelligence System and Early Warning service as its part, helps in recognizing the security threats about malicious programs, their properties, as well as servers used for their propagation, in addition to other aspects of their functioning. Instead of givin you general, non-descript warnings about malware, the Early Warning Service notifies you about the threats specifically targeting your organization.

Peter Dekýš will present statistical data how producers of harmful software use social engineering techniques. He will also talk about the findings from practical tests of some information systems.
The presentation discusses the statistics of vulnerabilities exploited by malware writers. It compares the situation in Slovakia and the world, and select countries.
The presented statistical data will be supported by the findings of testing conducted on request by a number of Slovak companies. The aim of malware writers and real-life findings point to the importance of the user in the information system as the key element in information security.
One of key reasons for implementation of ICT into public administration is cost reduction. On the other hand new information systems or connection with existing systems bring new risks and security threats. Administration of existing systems requires constant management of security risks as well. The other side of implementation of ICT is thus a need for integrity, availability and security of public administration information systems. The best solution for optimum use of financial means for information security is to use time-proven information security management system. From May till August 2011 ESET has conducted a survey of information security management in Slovakia. The presentation will present the survey findings with special regard to public administration institutions.
The presentation will take a closer look at some of the findings from a survey of information security management in Slovakia conducted by ESET in 2011. It will try to find answers on some of the questions that come with effective management of costs for information security or with development of information security management systems: How to spend budget for information security effectively? How to develop an effective system of information security management? Whom to appoint and train to be responsible for information security when lack of specialists and their training becomes and obstacle on the way towards secure, integral and available public administration information systems?
