Unit 42 is the global threat intelligence team at Palo Alto Networks and a recognized authority on cyberthreats. The team are experts in hunting and collecting unknown threats as well as completely reverse-engineering malware using code analysis. They will share the high-quality, in-depth research that provides insight into tools, techniques, and procedures threat actors execute to compromise organizations. They will provide context to explain the nuts and bolts of attacks as well as who’s executing them and why so that defenders globally can gain visibility into threats to better defend their business against them.
Please join us as we will discuss the following during the webinar:
- Overview of the current threat landscape
- Threat actors and their motivations
- Techniques behind the threats
- Resources, best practices and defenses
A better understanding of the actual threats we face as defenders, affords us the opportunity to proactively optimize our defenses to face them.
