Today's advanced malware is increasingly difficult to remove and even harder to detect in the first place. In this presentation, we examine the modern threat landscape and discuss the shortcomings of traditional antivirus, as well as how organizations can stay ahead of the malware curve. Malware authors aren't too concerned about what traditional security is capable of blocking, since they've formed reliable tactics to circumvent that protection. Either by leveraging social engineering or advanced evasive tactics, modern malware spells an uphill battle for traditional defenses.
