I am very excited to invite those of you in southern Florida to our seminar this week "Anatomy of an Attack: How Hackers Threaten Your Security". This could be because it has been 50 degrees Fahrenheit and raining for a few weeks, but equally as much because I love spending time educating IT professionals on the latest security threats.
Another reason I am excited? I have done a lot of work updating and reorganizing the materials so the folks of Miami-Dade get to see me deliver the new and improved version. I guess we could call it Anatomy of an Attack 2.0.
What is Anatomy of an Attack? It's an educational event where we invite IT professionals who work on security issues for their organizations to learn about the what, who, why and how of the security threatscape. After sharing our analysis of the latest threats and techniques I do a live malware demonstration. I show how these attacks are breaching our computer and network security, and the ease with which it can be done by determined adversaries. I conclude with advice on how you might defend your organization against these threats.
For those of you who want to know how Sophos helps you defend yourself, John Shier will be joining me from Sophos Canada to demonstrate Sophos products and explain the technologies we use to help you stay secure. This is an optional event, but is fun and informative and I encourage attendees to check it out. These sessions are not a sales pitch and are genuinely designed to offer you a free day of education about security and help you stay on top of this quickly evolving area of the IT world.
If you are in the Miami area, sign up to join us at the Marriott Biscayne Bay on November 4th at 10 AM. If you aren't able to attend, you may wish to check out our online version, which provides a glimpse into the content I deliver live and check out our calendar of upcoming events.
