For years, enterprise security defenses have been focused on attacks that were widespread but not very selective in their targets. Viruses, worms, botnets, and other malware dominated the threat horizon. Today, however, attacks are becoming much more sophisticated. Attackers - including nation-states, hacktivists, and organized cyber criminals - are honing in on the organizations and enterprises that have the data they want, and launching complex exploits designed to fool employees and crack the most sensitive systems.
Do you know how attackers exploit the weaknesses that exist in current enterprise security defenses - and how you can shore up those weaknesses?

What You Will Learn

In this half-day live event, the Dark Reading & InformationWeek team will join with top industry experts to offer a look at the latest and most sophisticated threats - including targeted attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Some of the industry's best-known personalities and vendors will be on hand to discuss the latest attack trends, the motivations, methods, and tools behind them, and how enterprises' cyber defense strategies must change to stop these new threats.
