Copies of Mr. Warner’s presentation will be available on the Malcovery web site, http://info.malcovery.com/cyber-intelligence-at-work at the conclusion of the presentation.
Mr. Warner’s presentation will discuss how traditional phishing response in the past has been limited to the game of ‘Whack-A-Mole,’ where phishers make new websites and banks report those to ‘take down’ companies, who then try to shut the site down before any significant amount of customers lose their credentials to criminals. He will discuss how his patented technology, now licensed exclusively by Malcovery Security, can automatically identify phishing sites from URL streams and then, based on its core ‘big data analytics,’ can prioritize the threats and target the appropriate response or countermeasure to scale in response to the threats.
As an IBM Business Partner Malcovery’s patented clustering technology integrates with IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis providing Malcovery’s users the ability to clearly visualize the source and nature of sophisticated cyber threat campaigns.

About Malcovery® Security
Malcovery Security is a leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis, delivered through software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities. The company’s patented and patent pending technology provides the ability to identify the ‘root sources’ of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), delivering rich intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging e-mail-based threats.
Unlike services that serve as a response to these attacks today–services that simply address the symptoms, but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal–Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt phishing activities and successfully prosecute cybercriminals.
Malcovery Security is based on technologies developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s (UAB) Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) and has offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Birmingham, AL.
