Featuring Norm Laudermilch, COO of Invincea speaking on Retooling for Advanced Threats – What You Need to do in 2015

In this presentation, we will be looking at what has happened to the effectiveness of security tools and mechanisms we deployed in the past, and how the shifting tactics of the bad guys and the rapid rise in attack complexity has  made much of it ineffective.   The talk will discuss how Sony, Home Depot, Target, etc were breached with existing operating security infrastructures in place and why.  We will then conclude with what we, as security professionals, will have to do in 2015 to get ahead of the bad actors again.
