Your employees are the primary target of attack by a variety of adversaries bent on doing your organization harm. This is a fact that simply cannot be challenged based on the last 24-36 months worth of breach disclosures. Spear-phishing has been at the root of virtually every major attack disclosed during this time - whether the RSA breach, the recent campaign disclosed by Kaspersky labeled "Red October," the "Nitro" attacks, attacks against the energy sector, etc, etc. When spear-phishing isn't used, other techniques aimed at the user such as watering hole attacks are employed. We've got a user problem on our hands that we need to rapidly solve.

We're currently losing the battle to our adversaries because the endpoint has become the new perimeter and our endpoint defenses are largely antiquated. However, innovation is here that you must take a look at...

Join Doug DeGrote, CISO at XCel Energy and Anup Ghosh, Founder and CEO at Invincea, for an informative discussion that will cover:

  • Recent examples of user-targeted attacks and thoughts on why they've succeeded
  • Thoughts directly from a leading CISO on how to tackle the user problem through a combination of training AND new technology deployments
  • How advances in virtualization enable the creation of segregated environments for your users to run highly-targeted applications such as the web browser, PDF reader, Office suite, etc.
  • How behavioral-based malware detection is being used in these segregated environments to spot and kill zero-days - including the recently announced Java 7 exploit
  • Methods for turning thwarted attacks into rich forensic information that can feed your entire infrastructure and extend its usefulness

Featured Speakers:
Doug DeGrote, CISO, XCel Energy
Anup Ghosh, Ph.D., founder and CEO, Invincea
