Ransomware. Supply chain vulnerabilities. Critical infrastructure attacks.

Every day, enterprises are faced with a new round of online exploits that they’ve never seen before – and wondering if their current technology defenses are enough. At the same time, cybersecurity technology vendors are regularly rolling out new products and services. How can your security team keep up? What are the latest emerging security technology and services that can help you? What are the latest emerging tools and technologies for detecting ransomware and mitigating it before it spreads?

These are just some of the issues that will be explored in this free, all-day online conference produced by the editors at Dark Reading. Top security experts and researchers will discuss ways to identify the emerging technologies that can improve your cyber defense – and offer tips on the best path for implementing them.
