DSC Weekly 11 June 2024


  • Cyberattacks are an unfortunate problem for digital business, targeting small companies to the largest enterprises. As digital infrastructure expands and more sensitive information is stored online, security risk management needs must go beyond prevention to ensure the organization has full visibility of their digital environments and can address incidents in real time. Join our upcoming summit to learn A Holistic Approach to Endpoint Detection and Response to get practical EDR strategies to bolster your security strategy. You’ll learn how the principle of least privilege, IoT security and telemetry helps protect your endpoints, and receive advice for using advanced forensics and AI-powered investigations to speed response times.
  • The current threat landscape is vast, forcing companies to detect and respond to increasingly sophisticated attacks that cause significant damage. With the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, experts are concerned threat actors will weaponize evolving technology for devastating attacks on businesses across the world. The supply chain remains a vulnerable target for attack due to the volume of information being transferred and the third parties involved. Cyber warfare is projected to threaten even more organizations, with nation state attacks making up a growing portion of threats. With all these risks circulated in cyber space, how can companies implement a solid detection and response program that keeps up? Register for the free Enabling Effective Threat Detection and Response summit to learn expert detection and response strategies to safeguard your enterprise from cyber threats.
