Why attackers love email and what you can do about it

Do you have a minute? 1 minute 40 seconds to be exact? That’s the median time-to-first-click in most phishing expeditions. While we celebrate all that humans can accomplish with the help of technology, we must also be cognizant of the dangers affiliated with humans and technology. How can you as a leader educate your people? How can you encourage them to take a minute to THINK before clicking?

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How your email can be used as an entry point for multiple types of attack
  • The damaging impact attacks have on organizations
  • Why your employees could be the weakest link in your email security
  • How to enhance your email security and thus your overall cyber resilience

AI/ML/NLP ENDPOINT PREVENTION: A Cognitive Approach to Prevent Execution of Never Seen Before Malware

Cybercrime is an exponentially growing threat to the world’s businesses, governments, and citizens. Attackers have been easily evading signature-based antivirus solutions for years. Making matters worse, the exponential growth in both connected devices and malware are overwhelming the capacity of enterprise security teams. Organizations are being asked to secure IT, Mobility, IoT, and OT assets all while staying on top of the latest zero-day and polymorphic threats. A new approach is needed to keep up with the evolving cybersecurity landscape.To that end, we’ve leveraged artificial intelligence to detect and prevent threats at machine scale, redefining how endpoint security protects an organization. We’ll be discussing how we built this cognitive engine, how it works, and how it could change the landscape of cybersecurity.
