Incident Response Update:
What We’re Seeing
(And How To Avoid It)

This webinar walks through three cyberattacks our incident response team is seeing on a regular basis this year.

Avoid the latest threats

The threat landscape for businesses shifts as cyber criminals find new methods and strategies for their attacks. Understanding the latest threats and how incident response works brings clarity when prioritizing your proactive security measures. In this Incident Response Update, we dive into the most common incidents we’ve encountered thus far in 2019, how we handle them, the vulnerabilities attackers are most commonly exploiting, and how to build a cybersecurity program to fend off the most frequent attacks. With these insights from our extensive incident response work, you’ll walk away knowing “what’s hot” in cybercrime, but more importantly how to fight back.
