Mimecast and Bulwark Technologies will address the growing issue of cybercrime, at this year’s Infosecurity Middle East. Mimecast will give two Techtalks, covering ransomware and the importance of building a cyber resilience strategy in an evolving cyber threat landscape. Experts will also perform a series of live email hacks and demonstrate how organisations can protect themselves against advanced cyberattacks like spear-phishing and impersonation fraud. The event will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 6 to 8 March 2018.
“FM Global and Pentland Analytics’ 2017 Resilience Index Annual Report revealed that countries in the Middle East have a particularly high exposure to cyber risk. Email is the number one attack vector for cybercrime with more than 90% of cyber-attacks starting in your inbox. Attacks predominantly feature techniques such as spear-phishing, ransomware and impersonation of key employees. It’s also seldom the end goal for attackers, with over 70% of attacks leading to other systems in the network. Yet, email security is still largely ignored by enterprises,” said Brian Pinnock, cyber resilience expert at Mimecast.
Mimecast and Bulwark will address two topical cybersecurity concerns. The first is ransomware – a strain of malware that enters an organisation via email and locks down networks, systems and devices until a ransom is paid. Brian Pinnock will deliver a talk on Ransomware – how to manage an attack and how to recover one to save your business on March 6, 2018 at 2:30pm.
Pinnock will also present on Navigating the evolving cyber threat landscape and achieving cyber resilience for email on March 7, 2018 at 12.15pm. This presentation will address how email-borne threats have become prevalent and sophisticated, forcing organisations to shift to a cyber resilience strategy to better protect their business, data and employees. The presentation will cover the importance of threat protection, data protection and business continuity, to improve cyber resilience in the cloud.
