The Latest Cybercriminal TTPs: How Public-Sector Defenders Can Stay Ahead

On-Demand Webcast|1 Hour

Cybersecurity is a pressing issue for public-sector organizations in the US, as they face the challenge of sorting through a vast amount of cyber threat intelligence while operating with limited resources and a shortage of skilled infosec professionals. The consequences of a successful attack can be devastating, highlighting the importance of prioritizing defenses against the top threats.  
So how does one make cybercriminal intelligence, detection and response, and network security less overwhelming while at the same time compensating for underwhelming budgets and a shortage of skilled infosec professionals?  
Foundationally, municipalities, agencies, schools, law enforcement, and other public-sector entities must understand the adversarial tools, techniques, and practices that pose the most significant risk to their organizations. That way, they can better prioritize their defenses against those top threats.  
In this fireside chat with Sophos, attendees will gain insights into  

  • the most prominent cybersecurity challenges facing public-sector organizations today  
  • the wide-ranging consequences that can develop when an attack is successful  
  • the most relevant adversarial TTPs and how to navigate an increasingly menacing threat landscape
