--------- A CISO | CIO Round Table Luncheon ---------


Email Security meets Data Science | Phishing and Ransomware: A Public Epidemic

[Threat Intelligence provided by Cyren.]

Phishing remains the top threat vector for cyberattacks, so kicking off our 2018 CISO | CIO Round Table Luncheons with this topic makes sense: Social engineering and the exploitation of human vulnerabilities continue to be the most attractive and successful paths for threat actors to target organizations and individuals who have access to sensitive data. Today's phishing attacks come in all shapes and sizes, combining levels of sophistication, speed, and malware that are astoundingly more dangerous to organizations than just 12-24 months ago.

The CSA Austin Chapter along with top subject matter experts in their field will host four quarterly CISO | CIO Round Table Luncheons in 2018 focusing on the most prevalent cyber threats and cloud security trends.

Our executive round table luncheons kick-off on February 15 with the rather striking and fast moving maturations we're seeing across the phishing threat landscape. Why are miss rates increasing across all categories of email filtering? How are organizations measuring the efficacy of their current email security in blocking phishing and ransomware attacks from end-users? How does an organization really know what sorts of blended attacks are getting through to endpoints? Is "zero-hour" phishing detection and blocking even possible?

CISO, CSO, CIO, CTO executives are welcome to attend these lunch sessions moderated by the Cloud Security Alliance Austin Chapter in conjunction with industry subject matter experts.

To attend the CISO | CIO luncheons, you must be a C-level executive responsible for strategic IT/Security direction within your organization, minimum 1,000 employees.

Feb 15: Our kick-off luncheon is sponsored by Cyren and the Cloud Security Alliance [Austin Chapter]:

EVENT SPEAKERS: Sigurdur (Siggi) Stefnisson, VP Threat Research, based in Hafnarfjordur, Iceland and Ben Carmi, Senior VP Products, based in Herzliya, Israel, will be presenting at our kick-off event.

EVENT MODERATOR: Peter Vogt, Co-Chair, CSA Austin Chapter

The quarterly luncheons are held at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar located at the Domain.
