Today’s cyber attackers are developing new tactics and exploits at light speed. With so many other responsibilities to manage, it’s difficult for many IT professionals to keep up with the latest threats – and even tougher to learn the latest tools and processes for enterprise defense. The Cybersecurity Crash Course is designed to help you catch up with the latest developments in cybersecurity attacks, emerging threats, and methods for protecting your enterprise data. In a two-day series of sessions – each taught by a top expert in the topic – you’ll learn the latest developments in key areas of security operations. You'll get insights into the key steps every organization should take to protect critical data, as well as a detailed look at how to respond when your systems have been compromised. Our goal is to make you "security savvy" by giving you the basics you need to understand the threats and exploits, while at the same time updating you on the latest thinking around enterprise defense.

Some of the takeaways offered by the Cybersecurity Crash Course:

  • Detailed, expert sessions that offer key principles of defense, as well as updates on the latest threats, in areas such as cloud security, endpoint defense, application security, and insider threats
  • Insight on the latest tools and processes for protecting enterprise data and preventing attacks before they happen
  • Advice and recommendations on incident response, including key steps to take when a critical data breach occurs

Day 1 sessions:
  • Building Cybersecurity Into Building Blocks of an Organization
  • Re-thinking and Re-defining Enterprise Infrastructure Security
  • Practical Solutions for Securing Your Cloud Services
  • Authentication: From Identifying Your Users to Trusting Your Users
  • How Hackers Attack Your Mobile Apps
  • Making Applications Secure in a DevOps World
