Security researchers looked ahead so your defenses won't fall behind.
Last year spear-phishing grew, mobile threats became a reality for the masses, and threats through web and email grew 600%, with 85% of malicious links found on legitimate websites that had been compromised. This year, nation state and terrorist generated attacks have moved into cyberspace, Java and other cross-platform architectures have come under fire, and other changes in the threat landscape have forced a reassessment of our defense strategies. So what should you be preparing for in the coming year?

In the "Websense® 2014 Security Predictions" report, Security Labs researchers highlight key trends to prepare for in the coming year. This webcast will share both expert opinion and hard facts, based on technical, social, political and economic factors as well as threat intelligence gathered from up to 5 billion inputs per day, from 900 million end points. This information will help you to:

  • Review current defenses.
  • Identify security gaps.
  • Proactively plan for configuration, policy and other changes.

Come prepared to be armed with new insights on how the threat landscape will shift in the coming year, along with ideas on how to improve your security posture and stay ahead of threats.
