  • Cisco 2017 Midyear Cybersecurity Report Insights

    Cisco security experts are becoming increasingly concerned about the accelerating pace of change in the cyber threat landscape.

    Join this free webinar where we will address our findings from the recent Cisco 2017 Midyear Cybersecurity Report. We’ll share new insights, explore the newest generation of worm threats going viral on a global scale, and address how adversaries use the pace and scale of technology to shift to IoT exploits, and how defenders are responding by shrinking time to detection.

    In this webinar, you will:

    • Discover select methods threat actors are using to compromise and infiltrate systems
    • Examine vulnerabilities and other exposures that may leave you susceptible to attacks
    • Explore opportunities for defenders by industry to improve your security posture

    Plus get answers to your questions from our experts during our live Q&A.
