Cyber security attackers become more innovative each year with threat activities progressing on a global scale. Coverage of cyber attacks by major media outlets continues to rise year after year, and 2017 seems to have done nothing to buck that trend.

In the last 12 months, we’ve seen reports of compromises at government entities, cable companies, automobile manufacturers, law firms, insurers, delivery companies, and more. Looking back at these headlines leaves us asking two questions above all: What didn’t work in cyber defense in 2017 and what can be done to be better prepared for future attacks?

We will address those questions and many others during our presentation, “Lessons from the Front Lines,” presented by Jeff Laskowski, Mandiant Senior Manager. We will share information about:

• The more disruptive opportunistic attacks in 2017
• More advanced and increasingly frequent attacks being carried out by nation-states

It wouldn’t be a proper discussion if we didn’t also cover the lessons learned from these successful attacks so that organizations will be better prepared in the future.
