The world of cybersecurity is plagued with jargon and acronyms like IAM, PAM, PDR, MDR, MSSP, SIEM, etc…… The essential element missing is how is an organization suppose to optimally defend itself from cyber threats. When this how question is asked, it often turns into a discussion about tools and technology. The discussion misses what the output of a point solution based technology or a symptomatic addressing of perceived threats is really doing to affect the overall reduction in risk to legal, financial, and reputational losses incurred from a cyber event.

This webinar connects the dots and will provide the attendee with a broad understanding of how, what, and why of the cybersecurity landscape. How the three elements of Prevention, Detection, and Response should be interplayed and arranged to craft a strong defense against current and future threat vectors. How an organization should consider making investments in parallel rather than in a linear fashion ,as described by the SANS Sliding Scale of Cybersecurity, and build a cybersecurity program that is mature relative to the risks a particular business faces and avoid the prevention paradox.
