Just as attackers are scaling and automating their techniques, security defenders need to do the same. Security teams must stay ahead of modern day attacks by challenging their defenses automatically, continuously and at scale with breach and attack simulation.

Join John Pescatore, of SANS Institute and Itzik Kotler, SafeBreach CTO and co-founder as they discuss how breach and attack simulation safely executes hacker techniques, how it is different from vulnerability assessment or penetration testing, and how to have an effective deployment within an organization. The webinar includes a demo of breach and attack simulation, details architecture considerations and describes detailed case studies of how security organizations are validating security defenses and enhancing security operations using this technology.

Attend the webinar and gain practical insights on:

  • How breach and attack simulation works
  • Deployment architecture and practical use cases
  • Case studies of real-world deployments
  • Live demonstration of breach and attack simulation in action
