Stop Giving the Offense an Unfair Advantage

  • Dr. Eric Cole
  • Monday, November 17th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Recently more and more reports are coming out stating that the offense has an advantage. This is confirmed by the increase in attacks and the number of organizations that are being compromised. However, it does not have to be this way. The reason the offense has the advantage is that the defense gave it to them. Many organizations spend a significant amount of money on cyber security, but they are not focusing in on the right areas. By understanding how the offense works, organizations can build security solutions that take the advantage away from the offense and give it back to the defense.

In this engaging talk, Dr. Cole will discuss actionable items that show how to build a defendable network. Find out what the top organizations are doing to properly protect their organizations.
