Stay abreast of the latest threats: Cyberthreat Intelligence Summit Sydney, 2-4 May 2018

Today’s cyber criminals are able to achieve their aims using increasingly advanced tools and techniques designed to get around most network defences, go undetected during the intrusion, and then remain hidden on networks over long periods of time.

According to the Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report “Defenders are implementing a complex mix of products from a cross-section of vendors to protect against breaches. This complexity and growth in breaches have many downstream effects on an organization's ability to defend against attacks, such as increased risk of losses.

o    In 2017, 25 percent of security professionals said they used products from 11 to 20 vendors, compared with 18 percent of security professionals in 2016.
o    Security professionals said 32 percent of breaches affected more than half of their systems, compared with 15 percent in 2016.”

As such, it is essential for organisations to understand how they can effectively utilise threat intelligence to influence their cyber security strategies.

Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) provides defenders an advantage, using information superiority to prepare and respond, reducing adversarial success rates.

The Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit being held 2-4 May in Sydney will bring together top experts and practitioners for in-depth threat intelligence talks, and exclusive networking opportunities.

It’s where cyber security and threat intelligence leaders, technology leaders, incident response and risk & compliance leaders will come together to:

  •     Understand the need for enhanced threat detection and prioritised incident investigation
  •     Learn how to keep ahead of attackers by leveraging threat intelligence
