The web remains a primary vector for cyberattacks, as either the initiation point or the way to complete the adversaries' mission. Unsuspecting employees remain in the firing line despite security awareness training and increasingly intelligent security controls. In this webcast, SANS instructor David Szili will discuss his perspectives on best practices for securing the web in general and his experience using the Mimecast Web Security cloud service in particular.

David will discuss using the Mimecast Web Security service to set policies to identify and block dangerous sites and manage which employees can access which sites as part of an acceptable use program. He will also walk attendees through the built-in reporting capabilities, dashboards, and best practices for setting up and using the service. Attendees will also learn how the web security tools are integrated with the Mimecast Secure Email Gateway with Targeted Threat Protection for simplified setup and the most effective way to manage and block malware and other threats using a single cloud platform.
