About this Webinar

When adversaries try to break into an organization, they do not follow the rules and will exploit the weakest link (the users) in an organization. In targeting users, they will often exploit the biggest exposure which is authentication via passwords.

Today’s security is not about prevention but controlling and managing the damage caused. The adversary never sleeps and neither should your security. Via behavior analytics, organizations can quickly identify suspicious activity, proactively take action, instead of allowing long term damage and the compromise of sensitive business information.

In this on-demand webinar, SANS faculty fellow and industry-recognized security expert, Dr. Eric Cole, you will learn:

  • Methods of attacks used by the adversary
  • Identifying and addressing the weakest link
  • How to utilize behavioral analytics to increase detection and response
