11:00am - 5:00pm ET | Doors Open at 10:30am ET

As the saying goes, it's not a matter of “if” an organization will suffer a cyberattack: It's a matter of “when.”

That adage amid today’s active and increasingly aggressive threat landscape may seem overwhelming and disheartening, but knowing and addressing the most common attack vectors, vulnerabilities, and mistakes that threat actors exploit most in real-world attacks can make all the difference in mitigating a potentially disastrous ransomware attack or data breach. How do you ensure your organization is in the know about how most data breaches unfold, and is schooled on the best practices for responding to a security incident? Learn the most common causes and effects of a data breach and the keys to conducting an effective incident response in a new virtual event: Anatomy of a Data Breach: And What to Do if it Happens to You. This free, one-day online Dark Reading conference in June 2024 offers a look at some of the main vulnerabilities that lead to enterprise data breaches, as well as the latest tools and best practices for incident response.

Topics Include:
Pinpoint and remediate weaknesses in your IT and Cloud Infrastructures
Best practices for defending against data breaches
Strategies for using DevSecOps for internal apps
Guidance on how to avoid cloud misconfigurations and security missteps
A look at the role of emerging tools like AI and Automation, eXtendedDetection and Response (XDR) orchestration

In this panel discussion, experts will discuss how to identify, assess, and prioritize the risk of an attacker exploiting the latest vulns in your systems. They will offer strategies for using DevSecOps for your internal apps as well as building a sound patching policy for your third-party software.

Moderated by: Jai Vijayan, Contributing Writer, Dark Reading

The acceleration to the cloud that began during the pandemic resulted in some misconfiguration mistakes in cloud services and accounts — as well as misunderstandings on just what security controls cloud customers were responsible for versus what their cloud provider handled. In this panel discussion, cloud security experts will outline how attackers can take advantage of those mistakes, as well as vulnerabilities in the cloud services themselves. They will provide guidance on how to avoid cloud misconfigurations and security missteps, as well as best practices for securing cloud-based accounts, identities, and stored data.

In this panel discussion, experts in incident response will offer a look at how best to respond to a security incident, including a look at the role of emerging tools such as AI and automation, eXtendedDetection and Response (XDR), orchestration, and state-of-the art IR practices.
