February 13th Meeting ISSA Meeting – The “New” Cyber Threat Landscape

The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing. But is it really? When you look carefully at the source of the attacks that dominate headlines, you will find familiar culprits, including phishing emails, and software vulnerabilities. This means the root cause can be traced back to one thing – a lack of basic security hygiene. Hear examples of why security continues to remain a core challenge and how organizations can keep systems clean, safe and secure in the “new” threat landscape.
