Presentation Summary:

The Current Threat Landscape

The mode, angle and impact of attacks has and continues to change. This means that we may need to modify the manner in which we protect, prepare and respond to the threat.This session is an interactive discussion with Dale Tonge, Senior Sales Engineer and Adam Louca, Softcat Chief Technologist, they will examine how the threat landscape has evolved and will change further in the future. We will share how analysts and other customers are addressing these developments and what should be seen as best practice to prepare for the future. 

How to make sure all endpoints and mobile users are fully secure

Today's sophisticated attacks are a growing challenge for all IT managers, right across the globe. Ransomware is here to stay, hackers take advantage of vulnerabilities in legitimate software, whilst AI is being adopted by cybercriminals improving their ability to execute more sophisticated and targeted attacks. This is a highly challenging and complex area for organisations of all sizes. The biggest enemy to security is complexity, especially in our current environment, so how can Sophos help eliminate this risk?

As the threat landscape has shifted, the number of devices we protect has increased. How do we limit risk and maximise protection? 

Securing the Journey Into the public cloud

Cloud security and compliance is a shared responsibility. Public Cloud providers (such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Services) offer a great deal of flexibility. And while they are responsible for physical protection of the datacentre, virtual separation of customer data and environments, whatever you put in the cloud is your responsibility. Learn how Sophos can help you secure your public cloud estate and guarantee ultimate compliancy.
