Cybercrime and industrial espionage attacks continue to get more sophisticated, using advanced evasion techniques to escape detection and becoming more and more targeted and damaging. In order to prevent more of these attacks, detect successful penetrations more quickly and minimize damage to the business and its customers, organizations need to evolve their defenses as effectively and as efficiently as the attackers are evolving their techniques. These changes in threat techniques combined with technology trends such as mobility and use of cloud based services often bypass existing network and endpoint security approaches.

John Pescatore of SANS will detail the changing tactics being used by attackers today and in the near term future, and dig into attacks statistics and data from a number of the most recent threat reports and statistics from numerous industries. His talk will provide you with the data and tools you need to prioritize where your defenses need to be upgraded and to convince management of the risk of not doing so.

Steve Lowing of Promisec will walk thru how to combat these new attacks leveraging the top five critical controls and in the process showcase a typical deployment of Promisec Endpoint Manager. Promisec's award-winning, Security, Compliance and Operations management platform utilizes patented agentless technology at over 450 of the global 2000.
