Despite a massive spike in security awareness (and huge increase in cyber security spending), why are there still data breaches and security failures? By studying how attackers are getting in, we learn the hard lessons about undetected missing defenses.


In this short Webcast, John Bambenek, ThreatSTOP's VP of Security and Research, gives insight into current hacking trends and how actionable intelligence can protect against the evolving and sophisticated adversaries we'll always be up against.

  • Hear about lessons learned from recent attacks and how they could have been prevented.
  • Learn about the latest attack trends and how attackers are trying to bypass existing security protections.
  • See how opportunistically using threat intelligence for blocking can help increase awareness of the threat landscape, while limiting incidents.
