Advanced attackers and malware are evading preventive controls as well as traditional detection methods. As such there is an ever-increasing need for organizations to predict, prevent, detect and respond to these attacks. The MWR Briefing is an afternoon in which we will bring you presentations from our team of leading Consultants on our latest research and thinking in this regard.
