Ensuring that Your Users are the Solid Line of Defense Against Cyber Threats

Presented by

Mark Guntrip, Group Product Marketing Director of Proofpoint & Michael Osterman, President of Osterman Research Inc.

About this talk

Today’s most popular security tools focus on protecting the perimeter—they manage endpoints and patch system vulnerabilities. But cybercriminals are no longer targeting infrastructure - they are targeting humans. It's the distracted user who clicks on an email attachment, or the eager customer who fills in credentials in a pixel-perfect phishing page who is vulnerable. It's becoming more and more evident that employees and regulated users need to be at the center of your strategy when building a robust cybersecurity approach in the era of highly sophisticated attacks. So how is that achieved? Join Proofpoint for a joint presentation with Osterman Research as we deep dive into some of the biggest challenges CISOs face, and why developing a people-centric strategy to security is the most effective way to protect your most valuable assets: your data and your people. In this session, we'll share: - Latest research findings on new methods for solving security attacks such as phishing and business email compromise - Why cybersecurity transformation is critical for protecting your people against today's threat actors - What it means and looks like to have an effective people-centric approach *This session is eligible for CPE credits with ISC(2).
