MWR Briefing: Cape Town

Thursday, October 27, 2016 3 years ago 12:30 - 17:30

An afternoon in which our team of leading Consultants will present on some of MWR’s latest research and thinking.


This MWR Briefing has passed, but you can sign up to be notified of future events, or register for another of our upcoming events by visiting our MWR Briefings page.

In light of cyber industry trends and observations made by our consultants, MWR's selection of presentations for our October briefing will investigate the contention that current protection strategies employed by local and international organizations are, in many instances, insufficient.

The presentations delivered will challenge the status quo of the often unquestioned cyber protection tactics implemented by most. In addition, we will provide the audience with an understanding of the modern capabilities relevant to an adequate status of resilience. Our security consultants will also depict how modern attackers are achieving their increasing successes while investigating and recommending how an organization can respond appropriately.
