Attackers go to great lengths to infiltrate organizations and go well beyond technically savvy hacks to worm through networks and systems to steal identity information and ultimately intellectual property. 

This webcast will break down a modern attack and explain what attackers target and how they execute attacks, all in the context of your need to reassess and re-prioritize risk. You’ll learn what you need to do to realign your data protection strategy efforts to counter new threats by first understanding what’s important to your business, and then developing a strategy that helps you break the chain of events in an attack and stop them before it gets too deep inside your company.
