Every year, the SANS Keynote panel on the Top 5 Most Dangerous New Attacks is one of the highest-rated offerings at RSA Conference. Exclusively for the SANS CISO Network Forum, Ed Skoudis will take a special behind-the-scenes look at the latest, most damaging attacks, giving you a special sneak preview of the RSA Conference panel, but with an important CISO-specific twist. In this session, Ed will share insights specifically for CISOs in what these attacks mean and what you can do about them to protect your organization.

  • Ed Skoudis, Founder at Counterhack & SANS Fellow

15:40-16:10 - A threat-driven perspective and discuss how some tactical changes in adversary behaviours have implications at the strategic level for CISOs.

From the latest ransomware techniques to cloud intrusions, you will hear details about what threats you should prioritize that are likely to continue throughout 2021 and beyond.
