The MWR Briefing: New York

Thursday, November 17, 2016 3 years ago 13:00 - 17:45 New York

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.

Recent data sources such as Verizon DBIR, similar vendor reports and our own privileged view gained from working with many organizations in a myriad of industries, have offered fascinating insights into the current global threat landscape.

It is abundantly clear that advanced attackers and malware are evading preventive controls as well as traditional detection methods, and as such there is an ever-increasing need for organizations to predict, prevent, detect and respond to these attacks.

This briefing, featuring some of MWR’s leading offensive and defensive specialists, will feature discussions that provide a unique view from the “front line” on how attackers are achieving such success and how you can respond appropriately.
