DALLAS – July 24, 2017 – Masergy, a leading provider of managed security solutions with a focus on managed detection and response, will host two seminars at Black Hat USA 2017 to help Chief Information Security Officers deal with the increasing complexity and volume of threats that their companies face.
The evolution of sophisticated cyber attacks means it’s extremely difficult for global enterprises to defend themselves against daily threats,” said Craig D’Abreo, Masergy Vice President, Security Operations. “Masergy will lend our expertise to help Black Hat attendees understand new hacking threats and discuss comprehensive defense and response strategies.”
Masergy’s workshops will expand on its conference theme, Security Doesn’t Have to be Your Nightmare:
- Sith Lords, Droids and Jedi Masters: The Emerging Fifth Generation of CyberSecurity
Thursday, July 27th — 2:30 – 3:20 PM
Ray Watson, VP of Technology will discuss how the leaking of hacking techniques used by agencies such as the CIA and NSA opens the door to a fifth generation of cyber security threats — and how a new generation of responses must evolve to contain them.
- Information Warfare: Tactics, Techniques and Procedures
Thursday, July 27th — 3:40 – 4:30 PM
David Venable, Vice President, Cybersecurity will review the tactics and methods companies can use to defend against today’s cybersecurity wars, along with case studies of organizations that successfully defend against the constantly-growing volume of threats.
