Are the Traditional Anti-Malware Software Effective?

Igor Volovich, CEO of Romad Cyber Systems participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Are the Traditional Anti-Malware Software are Effective”.



In a Digital Global Age, each year brings more complex security threats, advanced malicious code and unexpected security vulnerabilities. While security industry is making a serious attempt to fight back to secure cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS), in the escalating arms race against advanced malware, the efforts to manage security risks using traditional tools is facing complex challenges.

As malicious software or malware are evolving and becoming very sophisticated, malware threats are becoming very costly for nations: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals (NGIOA-I),

With the sophisticated hacking tools becoming abundant and cheap, the rapidly multiplying security threats and vulnerabilities across CGS, is greatly simplifying the effort required for intruders or criminals to compromise any computer network anywhere in the world. Moreover, when computer applications now often share components and data with one another creating multiple integration points– using respective organizational network as their primary interface, it further complicates the already complex security efforts in CGS.

While hacking once largely constituted an academic exercise for security enthusiasts, hacking for profit has now become a rapidly growing criminal industry. When entire underground world is springing up that is solely focusing on making money by invading nations: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals network resources, it is a cause of great concern!

It is perhaps time to go beyond outdated traditional desktop endpoint virus scanners and network-based intrusion prevention products to the next generation anti malware tools that can effectively bring security to CGS.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
