The Modern Attack Landscape: Featuring Verizon

An Analysis of Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) and a Deep Dive on Fileless Malware with CrowdStrike.

The fact that your organization may not have suffered a data breach yet is no assurance it won’t happen. As criminal actors continue to hone their skills, your best defense is to be prepared. That’s why the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) is the go-to document for getting a clear and accurate picture of today’s threat landscape, including the types of attacks to expect, the year’s most successful exploit techniques and your risks going forward.

This webcast, “The Modern Attack Landscape: Verizon’s Analysis of their 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR),” features security experts from Verizon and CrowdStrike as they discuss key findings from this year’s DBIR and provide details on how they have impacted organizations in every industry. You’ll also receive expert advice on the strategies and new security approaches that can keep your organization from becoming a statistic in the next Verizon DBIR.

Join Verizon Sr. Consultant Suzanne Widup and CrowdStrike’s VP of Product Management, Rod Murchison as they discuss a variety of topics, including:

  • An analysis of key report trends, including how one in five breaches were by state-sponsored actions, and two-thirds of malware attacks were installed from email.
