Attack vectors change – is SA ready?

Cyber attack vectors have changed dramatically, report the experts. To test SA information security professionals’ ability to defend their organisations, international experts Dan Crisp, acting chief information security officer: Information Risk Management at BNY Mellon, and Lynn Terwoerds, founding member of the Cloud Security Alliance, will stage a one day workshop where professionals will test their ability to meet new forms of cyber attack.

Delegates will be challenged to respond to a major security incident and mobilise their organisations to respond effectively. They will discover the anatomy of an attack and be guided through techniques for detective, preventative and reactive security controls.

Delegates will discover:
• How attack vectors have changed
• The anatomy of an attack
• The impact of coordinated detective, preventative and proactive controls
