Security Whack-a-Mole: SANS 2017 Threat Landscape Survey

  • Tuesday, 15 Aug 2017 1:00PM EDT (15 Aug 2017 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Lee Neely, Mark Butler, Robert Leong, Sean Murphy, Chad Skipper

As fast as we learn to detect new threats, the threats change - like a game of Whack-o-Mole happening at an ever-increasing pace. The SANS community is on the forefront of this battle and has answered the call to take a SANS survey on the threats their organizations face every day.

In this survey, members of the SANS community provide valuable intelligence into the types of threats impacting their organizations most severely and how those threats are changing. In our 2016 survey, those threats targeted the user endpoint, with phishing-based emails being the primary point of entry.

Attend this webcast and learn what threat actors are currently up to and how they're getting around existing defenses. Armed with this knowledge, IT professionals can anticipate attacks and get ahead of the attackers. Key trends that will be discussed include:

  • Primary vectors attackers enter through
  • Methods attackers use most effectively as part of their layered attacks
  • Impacts of breaches and how to remediate
  • Best places to apply defenses
  • Lessons learned by those who have been breached
