Defending Our Connected World

2020 is marking a period of massive global change in the way people live, work, and connect to each other. Workforces are significantly more distributed, dependencies on technology have dramatically increased and more critical information and services are being offered through online channels as a matter of necessity. All of these factors are creating new opportunities for malicious actors, seeking to exploit vulnerabilities in people and systems.

There has never been a more important time to come together as a community to innovate and share knowledge on today’s threats and tomorrow’s risks. In doing so, we empower ourselves as defenders with the collective wisdom to protect our way of life and the technologies that have become central to it.

Join us for our online Cyber Defense LIVE event and don't miss your chance to:

  • Hear from FireEye and Mandiant experts who will share exclusive behind-the-scenes insights around some of the hottest topics facing today’s cyber security industry
  • Learn how to safeguard your organisation from a potential breach
  • Get guidance on how to optimize costs while maintaining your existing risk profile
  • Discover new tools that measure security effectiveness to help companies understand and manage the associated risks of digital transformation
  • Listen to business leaders sharing their experiences and successes
