APT: It is Time to Act

  • Dr. Eric Cole
  • Wednesday, February 27th, 6:30pm - 8:00pm

We are pleased to recognize the Association of Information Security Professionals (AISP) as the sponsor of this bonus session.

Albert Einstein said "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." With the new advanced and emerging threat vectors that are breaking into networks with relative ease, a new approach to security is required. The myth that these attacks are so stealthy they cannot be stopped is just not true. There is no such thing as an unstoppable adversary. It is not time to despair- it is time to act.

In this engaging talk one of the experts on APT, Dr. Cole, will outline an action plan for building a defensible network that focuses on the key motto that "Prevention is Ideal but Detection is a Must". Better understand what the APT really is and what organizations can do to be better prepared. The threat is not going away, so the more organizations can realign their thinking with solutions that actually work, the safer the world will become.
