The past year has been plagued with a variety of new attacks. The most influential being Operation Shady RAT and its attack on over 70 organizations, the theft of RSA’s SecureIDs, and the DigiNotar hack that resulted in the compromise of numerous SSL certificates. All of these attacks have one thing in common. They are all Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). APTs are a new breed of attack taking the IT industry by storm. They are carefully monitored, resilient to defense, polymorphic and incredibly successful. But these attacks are after much more than a few SecureIDs or SSL certs, the true target is the information these assets allow their attackers to access. With one SSL cert, attackers are able to spawn an infinite amount of fake websites and lure in unsuspecting victims who submit valuable personal data and banking data to the false pages, without warning, without suspicion. This information is then used for political and financial gain, all fueling the machine and allowing further attacks to break down the fragile system we all hold dear.

APTs are one of many emerging threats on the frontlines of IT security. Other hot topics in the industry include Cloud Computing security, new challenges in Cryptography, and emerging Exploits. Even business related aspects of IT are changing rapidly such as the many improvements to be made to Risk Management procedures all influenced by the recent natural disasters on the east coast along with the 10 year anniversary of 9/11.

So many emerging topics, so little time.

But there is hope for security professionals. IP3 now offers an all new way for security professionals to learn about all of these new emerging threats and technologies and at the same time keep up on their certifications by earning valuable CPEs, all for an incredible price, wrapped up in a package that fits the lifestyle of the even the busiest IT security professional.
