Virtual Event: Advanced Threat Protection

Prevent, detect, and respond to new and sophisticated attacks

Thursday, October 22, 2020
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Attacks continue to become increasingly targeted, stealthy, and persistent. ATP takes a proactive approach to security by identifying and eliminating advanced threats before data is compromised.

The three primary goals of advanced threat protection revolve around early detection (detecting potential threats before they have the opportunity to access critical data or breach systems), adequate protection (the ability to defend against detected threats swiftly), and response (the ability to mitigate threats and respond to security incidents). These aspects of an organization’s security posture are critical now more than ever before.

Public Sector Network’s Advanced Threat Protection Virtual Event will give attendees a better understanding of the current landscape and how to develop the best defence strategy, implementation and management plan.
