Nothing stands still in cybersecurity. Threats change constantly, but equally as importantly business demands and information technology advance just as rapidly. 2016 was no different ' new threats such as ransomware and new threat delivery vectors resulted in a continuing stream of breach announcements. Business use of cloud and mobile applications grew dramatically, often exposing gaps in business and government security processes and controls.

The good news is security solutions can move equally rapidly ' for every breach in the press, a dozen other companies mitigated the threat and avoided the headlines. There are many lessons to learned by looking at 'What Worked ' in cybersecurity. Join John Pescatore SANS Director of Emerging security trends to take a look back at the positive and negative trends of 2016 and hear projections of 'What Will Work ' in 2017 and discussion of how to avoid the mistakes of the past and the threats of the future.
