Cyber threats are increasingly targeting individual users in small to large organizations – initiating attacks via social engineering, spear phishing, or even attacking through their trusted suppliers. Technology based counter threats are trying, but sometimes failing, to keep up with the constant pace of threats change. More future focused strategies are needed.

This workshop will explore current cyber threats targeting technology users, and will present and discuss technology based as well as other strategies to help counter those threats. Predicting future threats and preparing for future threats is a further emphasis.

This session will haelp attendees:

  • Understand current landscape of key technology based threats targeting our users.
  • Learn of proven strategies to counter those threats – both IT technology based and helping users be part of the defense (and response).
  • Learn how to predict future threats and identify needed defenses.

MTUG thanks our volunteer board member Eugene Slobodzian, who coordinated this event's speakers and topic.
