Speech Topic & Synopses
The Cybereason platform vs a live cyber attack

Today’s cyber attackers are able to translate a successful phish into persistent, stealthy network compromise. How does this happen, and what can we do to stop it?

In this special attack simulation, get an inside look at how multi-stage attack campaigns operate today. You will witness the attacker’s infiltration and watch the malicious operation as it moves across the entire environment. See the many opportunities an attacker has to advance the operation, and the ways a defender can break the chain and end the attack before crown jewels are compromised.

In today’s reality where prevention measures aren’t always enough and penetration can seem inevitable, we — the defenders — need to look at other ways of protecting our organisations. AI is the future of CyberSecurity and the future with Cybereason is NOW.

You’ll come away with new knowledge on today’s attack campaigns and insights on how defenders can gain the upper hand. The session will share the attacker’s mindset and how it impacts our strategies as defenders.
