WatchGuard CTO Corey Nachreiner Breakfast Presentation on “Cyber Crime Gets Sophisticated in 2017”

November 2, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

CoreyNachreinerJoin us on Wednesday, November 2, from 8:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. for a breakfast presentation featuring Corey Nachreiner, Chief Technology Officer at WatchGuard Technologies, on “Cyber Crime Gets Sophisticated in 2017: Surviving Advanced Attacks on a Small Business Budget.” This is a presentation you will not want to miss. Nachreiner is recognized as one of the best IT security experts in the world, and his presentations are very hands-on and mind-blowing.

Hacking and cyber crime has moved from the concern of technologists, to the recurring subject of the nightly news, and even a topic of presidential debate. A week doesn’t go by without another story about a business suffering from a data breach or hack. In fact, researchers estimate businesses and consumers lost hundreds of billions of dollars to cyber crime last year. As organized criminals realize the financial returns in cyber attacks, they’ve improved their attack techniques and malware, creating more sophisticated threats that evade traditional defenses. In this talk, Nachreiner outlines some of the  latest hacking and information security trends, and shares strategies that allow small businesses to defend themselves on a budget.

The talk covers:

  • The latest cyber attack trends, including the growth in ransomware and IoT attacks
  • Why attackers target SMBs
  • The dangers of malware
  • Strategies for surviving advanced threats on a budget
