You cannot defend against everything. Business demands and resource constraints force you to focus your security efforts on the threat actors most likely to target you, the assets they're most likely to attack, and the exploits they're most likely to use. Don't know what those are? Then join us Wednesday, June 27, for "Why Cybercriminals Attack," a Dark Reading Virtual Event, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
We start with a discussion of attacker motivations: who are the adversaries, who do they want to hurt, and why. Then we dig into their methods: How do the attacks vary from threat actor to threat actor.
We'll proceed to discussions about how to know when you're under cyberattack. Experts will discuss the most effective and innovative tools and techniques for detecting exploits; even those that use sophisticated obfuscation techniques. They'll also discuss how best to collect and analyze threat intelligence feeds, so that you have the insight you need when you need it most, instead of too many feeds, and too little time.
Finally, we'll close with a discussion of what to do when your best efforts to prevent or detect have failed, and it's time to simply contain the impact of a compromise. You'll hear about the most essential elements of incident response including how to tell the extent of a compromise, how to determine whether your systems are still vulnerable, and when to contact law enforcement.
It all starts at 11 a.m. E.T. Wednesday, June 27. Register now.Dark Reading's Quick Hits delivers a brief synopsis and summary of the significance of breaking news events. For more information from the original source of the news item, please follow the link provided in this article. View Full Bio
