Live hacking - Can your business withstand a cyber attack
|Date & Time:||22 March 2017 12:30|
During this demonstration, we will look at some of the common approaches used by cyber criminals to attack public-facing business systems. These types of systems have become increasingly valuable to businesses for customer engagement and self-service, streamlining business processes, and improving supplier-related processes. If information technology or business technology plays an essential role in your business, you need to understand how any risk of downtime can lead to serious and damaging business outage. In this hands-on demonstration, you will gain insights into common security vulnerabilities, the risks they present for your business, and best practices to identify and remediate these weaknesses.
