IoT devices can be easily exploited due to their inherent security gaps. Soon these IoT-based attacks will become everyday occurrences for service providers and enterprises the like. Join Stephen Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst at NSFOCUS, and learn about IoT-based botnets, how to detect them and how to better protect your connected devices. Viewers will learn about: - An exclusive overview of the Mirai malware and how it’s being used against your organization - The latest tactics, techniques, and procedures hackers are using in the escalation of IoT-based botnets - How to detect and defeat these attacks via cloud and on-premises defenses
