About this talk

When entire workforces went remote in 2020 because of the global pandemic, organizations pivoted quickly to new business models by migrating apps and services to the cloud to enable the anywhere, everywhere workforce. That’s resulted in business users spending an average of 75% of their workday working in a browser. These same digital enhancements, however, also ushered in widespread transformation that expanded attack surfaces and created new opportunities for cyber miscreants, giving rise to Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT), which are used as beachheads for initiating ransomware, data theft, and account takeovers. During this insightful session, Menlo Security Senior Director of Cybersecurity Strategy, Mark Guntrip, discusses why HEAT attacks are the next-class of browser-based attacks taking advantage of today’s remote and hybrid workforce.
