September 6, 2012: Anatomy of an Attack

Supported by RSA
Overview

In the past 18 months, a series of highly sophisticated and targeted cyber-attacks across the globe have revealed a seismic shift in the threat landscape. With both private and public-sector organizations, targeted attacks are becoming increasingly advanced and audacious. In March of last year RSA suffered a significant and highly publicized cyber-attack. This presentation will detail the elements of the attack, the lessons learned by RSA, and suggested best practices for continuing to combat Advanced Persistent Threats.
