CROWDSTRIKE SERVICES CYBER FRONT LINES REPORT CROWDCAST

Dec 10th @ 11am PST, Dec 16th @ 2pm GMT and Dec 15th @ 2pm AEDT

Incident Response and Proactive Services from 2020 and Insights That Matter for 2021

In a year when a global pandemic has significantly changed how and where we work, our cybersecurity practices have had to evolve quickly in the face of adversity and in response to a continued increase in more sophisticated and targeted adversary attacks.

This webcast, drawn from real-life engagements and presented by the experts who investigated them, focuses on the themes and trends observed across the global incidents the Services team responded to and remediated throughout 2020 — and what they mean for 2021.

Join this webcast to learn about these key findings from the report:

  • The volume of financially motivated attacks is staggering
  • Intrusions are no longer a one-time event
  • Shifting to a continuous monitoring and response approach changes the game
  • Widespread remote work has broad-reaching effects on cybersecurity
  • Cloud infrastructure requires special attention from defenders
  • Organizations focused on driving key security enhancements can stop breaches

You’ll gain greater insight into the front-line view of the digital battle and also get a pragmatic take on how to ensure your organization doesn’t become a statistic in next year’s report.
