Why our Defenses are Failing us. One Click is All it Takes...

  • Bryce Galbraith
  • Thursday, September 6th, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Organizations are spending unprecedented amounts of money in an attempt to defend their assets...yet all too often, one click is all it takes for it all to come toppling down around them. Every day we read in the news about national secrets, intellectual property, financial records & personal details being exfiltrated from the largest organizations on Earth.

How is this being done? How are they bypassing our defenses (e.g. strong passwords, non-privileged accounts, anti-virus, firewalls/proxies, IDS/IPS, logging, etc.) And most importantly, what can we do about it? A keen understanding of the true risks we face in today's threatscape is paramount to our success...
