Summit Highlights

In 2017, every 4.2 seconds a new malware specimen emerges.  New threats also get more sophisticated and often involve fileless malware, ransomware, reconnaissance activities and social engineering techniques. With a security breach now more a question of ‘when’, not ‘if’, businesses need new mindset and new strategies to managing corporate security, putting more focus on ‘always-on’ monitoring and constant investigation leveraging threat intelligence, as well as regular evaluation to ensure response strategies are updated. Themed “New Threats, New Mindset, New Approach to Defense’, the 10th InfoSecurity Summit 2018 will unveil new approaches to defense and lay out a roadmap for adapting your security strategy to handle evolving threats and stay ahead.
