Event Details

Cyber criminals are increasingly leveraging advanced tools as part of their cyberattacks, heightening the risk of a security incident or a data breach. In turn, some CISOs are adopting sophisticated solutions, such as AI-powered sandboxing, as an essential component of their security strategy. Developing a suitable defense methodology helps combat previously unknown threats such as ransomware, crypto-malware, and many others.

Who are the threat actors and what tools and methodologies are they using to breach an organization? How can you effectively break the attack kill chain to protect your critical assets?

To protect an organization, it is key to understand how it can be breached. In this workshop, participants will learn what tools and methodologies threat actors use to breach an organization. The participants will play the role of the threat actor and explore the anatomy of an attack to see how easy it is to penetrate an organization.

Once breached, the participants will then go on to deploy and configure different Fortinet products to understand exactly how these solutions can break the kill chain. Participants will learn how to stop and limit the progression of the very same cyberattacks they launched earlier.
