Attackers Do Not Operate in Product Silos—Neither Should Your Security Team

Attackers are no longer targeting assets or infrastructure; they are using people as the point of initial access for most cybersecurity incidents. Most ransomware incidents start with an initial access point of people, using credential phishing attacks. Attackers are also using diverse tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) to gain access to then move laterally, cause damage and exfiltrate data. Organizations must look at security with a people-centric lens, and approach this with a platform approach that can bridge, integrate and unify your defensive strategies.

This session will explore how you can gain a people-centric view of these modern security challenges, and how you can use this approach to support your overall security strategy.
