The New Normal: Cyber Attacks and Effective Defense in the Modern Era

In this presentation, Travis Rosiek, Chief Solutions Strategist in FireEye’s CTO office, will discuss the evolution of cyber attacks and threat actors, with insights on where exploits are happening today and why. Mr. Rosiek will discuss a current threat landscape that is more complex than ever, with security teams finding it increasingly difficult to prevent, detect, analyze and respond to advanced attacks. Drawing on FireEye’s experience with a range of government and industry organizations, this presentation will touch on where we’re making progress, and what can be done to address the new and increasingly sophisticated tactics being used by attackers.
