Flipping the cyberdefence equation to tip the scales back in our favour

Far too often, the cybersecurity industry focuses too heavily on all the advantages attackers have. We've all heard the saying: "Defenders have to be right 100% of the time while attackers only have to be right once." Well, what if we could flip that equation? As defenders, we have the home field advantage, so why does it seem like we are consistently losing? In order to shift this model and tip the scales back in our favour, we need to be thinking about "Disruption in Depth" rather than just "Defence in Depth." We need to be making attackers' lives significantly harder. Attackers make mistakes all the time. Let's make them have to be 100% right all the time instead of us. Join Carbon Black's Regional Director, Sam Linford, as he reveals the reality behind the modern threat landscape and uncovers what security teams can do today to tip these scales and make attacking your organisation exponentially more difficult for attackers.
