For years, we’ve seen attackers target organizations via their people. Now with fewer reliable exploits and more cloud adoption, we’re also seeing a shift toward attacks that exploit people, with threat actors tricking their targets into running their malware for them, handing over their credentials, or simply sending data or money to an impostor. Lucia Milica of Proofpoint will outline strategies for gaining visibility and mitigating risk in a people-centric threat landscape.

Join to learn: 

  • Why nearly all threat actors have shifted away from technical exploits to compromise their targets
  • How organizations can leverage threat data to understand which people and departments are highly targeted
  • How to design effective protection for highly attacked, highly vulnerable, and highly privileged users

Information security leaders navigate an increasingly complex matrix of national and foreign data privacy regulations. GDPR caused organizations to scramble to meet data protection directives and reassess risk management through new compliance reporting requirements and potential exposure to financial penalties. Now California has its own Privacy Act set to come into effect, and it’s one of potentially many different pieces of forthcoming regulation and policy. How can organizations create a unified data protection and compliance strategy that meets conflicting requirements?

In this session, discuss:

  • The current landscape of data privacy regulation around the world
  • Best practices for managing risk associated with data protection frameworks
  • Standards and metrics for measuring data protection risk
  • Data classification strategies to aid compliance, regardless of regulation
