Why You Should Attend!



The sophistication of email-based threats has risen dramatically, and traditional methods are unable to keep up to speed. At the same time, an increasing portion of society is now exposed to the threat, with nation-state attacks providing criminal inspiration to enterprise attackers and also leading to trickle-down effects on consumer fraud. To make matters worse, benchmarking efforts fail to recognize that targeted threats, while representing an almost negligible portion of the entire volume of the threat, correspond to an outsized portion of the losses.

Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with Agari, is bringing together leading IT and Information Security executives from a variety of industries to discuss these topics and more at our 2017 CISO Virtual Event: Combatting the Rising Threat of Email Based Attacks.

This event will focus on several areas, including:

  • Analyzing common attacks, and discussing trends 
  • Reviewing the benefits and shortcomings of traditional security technologies 
  • Alternative perspectives of the issues, based on an understanding of the necessary constraints faced by an attacker wishing to be successful
  • Exploring methods to reverse these negative trends

The "2017 CISO Virtual Event: Combatting the Rising Threat of Email Based Attacks" is proudly sponsored by:
