Presentation: Five Critical Elements of Endpoint Security
Thursday • 10:30AM - 11:10AM
• Room: Prosperity
Endpoint security is one of the most critical components of a cybersecurity strategy. The 2018 SANS Endpoint Security Survey Report found that more than 80 percent of known breaches involved an endpoint. Nearly every one of these endpoints had some form of endpoint protection installed, which failed to live up to the challenge of today's adversary. Unfortunately, for those responsible for protecting their organizations' endpoints, it has never been more challenging to select the best solution for the job.
In this presentation, Scott Taschler of CrowdStrike provides an overview of the 5 critical elements of endpoint protection required to effectively protect an organization against today's modern threats.
