FireEye Cyber Defense Live

Government Forum | Tuesday 6 June – Brussels

Operationalizing Security in a New EraIn order to protect themselves, state and local governments and their partners need a clearer picture of the rapidly-evolving threat landscape that has drastically changed with new rules of engagement. Nation-state actors, cyber criminals and hackers have become less predictable. The attack surface continues to grow with the rise in connectivity, data loads and access to industrial control systems.

To identify, assess, respond and mitigate threats such as ransomware, extortion, espionage and zero-day attacks, as well as predict and prevent the “unknown threat,” agencies need to build intelligence-led security operations. CIOs and CISOs are drowning in their own security stack while analysts are exhausted by “alert fatigue.”

Operationalizing security enables security professionals to rapidly collect, analyse and disseminate threat intelligence across the enterprise, assess risk based on an adversary’s motivation and capability and align resources to the most impactful threats.

If this resonates and you would like to learn more please join FireEye & our selected partners to dive deeper.
