Networking breakfast

The cyberthreat landscape and necessity of security automation
An exchange of views on how to protect our digital way of life

As the cyberthreat landscape continues to evolve, companies and governments increasingly rely on security automation to enhance their cybersecurity capabilities. Palo Alto Networks is pleased to invite you to a roundtable discussion focused on how automation, machine learning and other advanced techniques can be leveraged to protect our digital way of life, including in emerging areas such as cloud and IoT. We will explain how cyber adversaries are making use of compute power and tools to launch attacks, and how automation allows many of these attacks to be delivered rapidly and to spread rapidly (such as the Wannacry and Not Petya attacks) to huge numbers of potential victims. At the same time, nation-state espionage attacks are gaining in sophistication, and ransomware -particularly when targeting specific organisations - is causing more and more damage.Despite these challenges, innovation in security automation is making a difference.We will discuss how automation can simplify and accelerate the ability to detect, prevent, and respond to never-before-seen malware and other cyberattacks.
