Aligning Your Defenses with Today's Evolving Threats
- Paul A. Henry
- Monday, July 14th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm
Defense is an arms race with hackers that are continuously evolving their attack vectors and methods to take advantage of our current weaknesses. Many have fallen into today's "crowd mentality" trap and due diligence has been reduced to simply doing what everyone else is doing. We need to think out of the box and get ahead of the crowd - by gaining an understanding of current threats and attack vectors to realign our defenses. This presentation reviews some of the most current headline grabbing attacks and discusses defenses to provide real risk mitigation.
The best path forward is most often driven by studying recent events. We will take a deep dive in to the Target breach and discuss mitigations in depth.
