Leading email and data security company, Mimecast along with its distributor Bulwark Technologies, will be present at the forthcoming Infosecurity Middle East in Abu Dhabi at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 6 to 8 March 2018.
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.
“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.
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. And he 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.
