Anatomy of a Data Breach:
And What to Do if it Happens to You
As the saying goes, it’s not a matter of “if” your organization will suffer a cyberattack: it’s a matter of “when.” That conventional wisdom amid today’s complicated and active threat landscape may seem overwhelming, but knowing the most common vulnerabilities and oversights that threat actors typically abuse – as well as the best practices for responding to a security incident -- can make all the difference in protecting your sensitive data from an attacker who has made their way into your network. Is your organization ready to respond when a cyber attacker intrudes?
Learn the main causes of a data breach and the keys to an 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 conference in Q2 2023, produced by the editors of Dark Reading, offers a look at some of the most common vulnerabilities that lead to enterprise data breaches, as well as the latest tools and best practices for incident response. You’ll get insight on how to find and fix the security vulnerabilities in your organization – before the attackers find them. You’ll learn state-of-the-art practices and techniques to protect your data from ransomware, cyber extortion, and other current threats. Best of all, you’ll get insight on what to do when you’ve discovered a compromise, and how to limit its impact.
If you want to learn how today’s most dangerous breaches occur – and how to respond if your organization gets hit -- then this virtual event is for you. Register today.
Data breaches happen — often due to an oversight or unknown vulnerability in an IT infrastructure that attackers spot and exploit first. In this keynote presentation, a top cybersecurity expert will shine light on some of the most common security flaws and mistakes that can lead to an attack, and how to pinpoint and remediate these weaknesses in your IT infrastructure.
In this keynote address, a top security researcher will detail and analyze trends in real-world data breaches of the past year – including the most popular attack vectors and exploited vulnerabilities – and explain the lessons learned and best practices for defending against these attacks.
Software vulnerabilities are at the heart of a data breach. While vendors regularly release patches and updates to their products, how do you know which flaws truly threaten your organization and require immediate attention? How do you ensure your own development team is writing secure code? 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 third-party software.
The endpoint traditionally has been the focus of the first stage in a cyberattack, as attackers attempt to gain a foothold in their targets. How can you detect a threat that has infiltrated the endpoint or a user’s account in order to halt its spread further in your network? What can you do to assess and ensure your users’ various devices and online credentials are protected? In this panel discussion, experts will provide insight into threats to the ever-evolving endpoint and how best to protect these devices – and your user accounts – from becoming pawns in a data breach.
Cyberattack attempts and threats are inevitable, but damaging data breaches don’t have to be. There are some key steps, strategies, and technologies, to help ensure a security event doesn’t escalate, including proactive threat-hunting, detection of even the most well-hidden threats, and mitigation methods. What actions should you take if you think your network was compromised? 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 eXtendedDetection and Response (XDR), orchestration, and state-of-the art IR practices.
