The Briefing 2020

May - June 2020

Take part in a season of future-focused presentations and discussions. If you would like to be invited to our next Briefing, please visit our Briefings page

Together, we’re moving towards a new global paradigm, learning and adjusting to an unfamiliar normal. With adjustment comes change. The need to think in new ways has become fundamental to the way we do business. Effective cyber security has always been about being ahead of the attacker, and our upcoming Briefing has been curated around areas of security that will be pivotal in coming years.

This series is designed to help security leaders adopt a state of resilience that’s permanently ready for transformation – focusing on the deployment of both existing resource and future investment.

Rather than our usual one-day event, we’ll be delivering live, interactive 45 minute sessions over five weeks.

What to expect

  • New ways of thinking to guide your security strategy
  • Technical and business-related recommendations on how to predict, prevent, detect, and respond
  • Examples of tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) being used by modern attackers, as seen in our recent engagements
  • Exclusive access to our latest R&D, with advice on how it can be used in your organization
  • Ample Q&A time to engage consultants in discussions about your most complex security challenges.
Our Briefing series has now concluded. You can now watch the recordings on demand
