In nearly every major security breach in the past 12 months involving a threat actor operating from outside, endpoint security compromise has been a consistent theme. Compromising endpoints is a threat vector of choice, especially for advanced cyber criminals who specifically target their victims. Indeed, Trend Micro reported that 91% of targeted attacks involved use of a spear phishing attack to gain access.
During this special webcast, Jon R. Ramsey – Chief Technology Officer for SecureWorks and, Benjamin Johnson, Chief Evangelist of Bit9/Carbon Black, discuss the realities confronting organizations today and why endpoint security is increasingly critical for security teams and leaders to address.
The webcast will provide an overview of the threat landscape, what the latest tradecraft cyber criminals are employing and answer why traditional detection technologies are insufficient to address the problem.
The webcast will also establish what endpoint capabilities are critical for detecting advanced threats and disrupting the threat actor’s "Cyber Kill Chain" sooner.
Being able to disrupt the adversary's cyber kill chain early is critical.
Finally, the webcast will address what other steps organizations must take to address the risk posed by endpoints.
