Cybersecurity War Stories: Tales from the Trenches

September 12, 2017 @ 11:30 am

To succeed in business today, it’s imperative for organizations of all sizes to have a dynamic online presence. But there’s a risk to always being connected—organizations are prime targets for cyber attacks. Recent ransomware attacks like Petya and WannaCry demonstrate how businesses can be brought to a grinding halt by locking access to your business-critical data.

You are cordially invited to join Winslow Technology Group, Arctic Wolf Networks and other Boston-based IT executives for an afternoon of networking and security-focused conversations.

Brian NeSmith, CEO and Founder of Arctic Wolf Networks (AWN), will be on-hand to share security war stories that the Arctic Wolf Security Engineering team encounters on a daily basis.

Brian will explore several of the most critical attacks that Arctic Wolf Networks has addressed in 2017. You’ll hear why a robust Security Operations Center (SOC)-as-a-service, augmented with machine learning and human analysis, is critical to bolster your security defenses against the most advanced threats.

AGENDA:

  • 11:30am – 12:00pm:    Welcome
  • 12:00pm – 1:00pm:      Lunch with Featured Speaker Brian NeSmith, Arctic Wolf Networks CEO
  • 1:00pm – 1:30pm:        Q & A

Seats are limited, so please RSVP today. We look forward to seeing you!

 

Brian NeSmith brings more than 30 years of experience, most recently as former CEO of Blue Coat Systems, where he increased company revenues from $5M/year to over $500M/year as the industry’s leading web proxy platform. Prior to Blue Coat Brian was the CEO of Ipsilon Networks (acquired by Nokia) which became the leading appliance platform for Check Point firewalls. His early career includes product management, marketing, and general management at Newbridge Networks. He was also a consultant for Network Strategies, Inc. Brian graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a bachelors of science in electrical engineering.
