Transform Users into Defenders


According to the 2023 State of the Phish, 76% of organisations fell victim to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year. Unfortunately, less than 35% of companies teach their users how to identify BEC. As attackers refine their tactics—from bulk phishing to advanced phishing kits that bypass multifactor authentication (MFA)—equipping users for today’s threats has never been more critical.

Join this Power Series as our panel of experts discuss:

  • The latest attack tactics that exploit human vulnerability
  • Incorporating threat intelligence into your security awareness program
  • Key elements for driving effective behaviour change
  • Identifying metrics that matter to CISOs and your leadership team

Break the Attack Chain


Identities are a company’s crown jewels when it comes to access and privileges to corporate systems. And attackers know the power they have if identities are compromised. Compromised identities can result in data exfiltration, takeover over IT environments, or launch of ransomware attacks.

Research has shown that 51% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to employees with unnecessarily high permissions. And 16% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to malware designed to dump cached credentials from devices. In fact, 1 in 6 endpoints contain vulnerable identity risk.

Join our panel of experts in this Power Series to learn:

  • How to defend against identity threats and stop attackers
  • How these attacks lead to ransomware or data exfiltration
  • The importance of an active detection response solution
  • Best practices in building identity threat defences

Protecting Sensitive Data

While protecting people and those who access and use data is important, we also need to think about how we go about defending data. Reactively following data movement is not enough. We need to fully understand the context, behaviours and threats associated with data before we can become successful defenders of data.


Identity is the New Attack Surface

Identities are a company’s crown jewels when it comes to access and privileges to corporate systems. And attackers know the power they have if identities are compromised. Compromised identities can result in data exfiltration, takeover over IT environments, or launch of ransomware attacks.

Research has shown that 51% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to employees with unnecessarily high permissions. And 16% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to malware designed to dump cached credentials from devices. In fact, 1 in 6 endpoints contain vulnerable identity risk


Building a Strong Security Culture

According to Proofpoint’s 2023 State of the Phish Report, only 56% of organisations have conducted formal security awareness training. And yet, 58% of employees know what the term Phishing is, which suggests that training alone may not be as effective as we want it to be. Moreover, most people believe it’s the cybersecurity team’s sole responsibility to keep the organisation safe. It’s a common challenge for security professionals to change that mindset.

Having a strong security culture can not only help drive behavior change but also impact what users believe. So how can your organisation go beyond training and start building a security culture?


Improving M365 Security with Proofpoint

Many organisations utilize bundled security offerings from Microsoft and run under the assumption that Microsoft security is “good enough” or feature comparable to purpose-built security platforms. Security leaders often struggle to justify specific security spend outside of Microsoft and are desperate for ways to prove the value of security platforms versus simply using what is built-in to the Microsoft ecosystem. We must implement modern and practical requirements when designing a data security governance approach.


CISO Perspectives on Supply Chain and Third Party Risk

Tabletop exercises may uncover some supply chain and third-party risks. But few organisations doing them last year could have foreseen the effects of geopolitical conflict. Add to the mix a myriad of new risks—from cloud-based solutions to hybrid work environments and remote work—and CISOs have a lot to deal with. CISOs can transfer some responsibility for risks to cloud and third-party vendors. Ultimately, however, they’re accountable when it comes to keeping their organisations safe.



Mitigating Data Loss and Insider Threats

Insider threats are the top cybersecurity concern among chief information security officers (CISOs) globally, according to the Proofpoint 2022 Voice of the CISO report. Digital transformation, work-from-anywhere environments and employee turnover are increasing insider risk. As the modern way of working shifts, more data is generated and cloud adoption accelerates, CISOs are questioning if their legacy solutions can meet today’s demands. There is one constant factor among these ongoing shifts: people. After all, data doesn’t lose itself; people lose data. And more than half the time, insider threats can be attributed to careless users. These users unknowingly or unintentionally impact an organisation’s data or systems negatively.



Break the Attack Chain

Identities are a company’s crown jewels when it comes to access and privileges to corporate systems. And attackers know the power they have if identities are compromised. Compromised identities can result in data exfiltration, takeover over IT environments, or launch of ransomware attacks.

Research has shown that 51% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to employees with unnecessarily high permissions. And 16% of organisations have suffered a breach or attack due to malware designed to dump cached credentials from devices. In fact, 1 in 6 endpoints contain vulnerable identity risk.



Augment M365 Defence

Few tools are as critical to modern business as Microsoft 365. Unfortunately, the platform’s reach and central role in the workplace also make it a prime target for cyber attackers. That’s why experts such as Gartner and Forrester recommend augmenting Microsoft 365’s native security features with complete email, cloud and data protection. We’ll explore new people-centric approaches to threat protection, identity defence and data loss prevention (DLP) to safeguard your Microsoft 365 investment.


Stop Insider Risks From Turning Into Insider Threats

Not every insider risk turns into an insider threat, but every insider threat began as an insider risk. Almost two-thirds—63%—of global CISOs say they have had to deal with the loss of sensitive information in the past year, according to the Proofpoint 2023 Voice of the CISO report. That’s why security leaders need an insider risk mitigation program that encompasses people, processes and technology for successful early intervention, detection and mitigation of insider threats. How can executives build out these robust defences and build internal buy-in by contextualizing their risk mitigation strategies within the framework of the larger corporate risk framework?


Year in Review and Predictions

2023 was a year of explosive change in the cybersecurity arena as the cyber attack chain—and the landscape as a whole—evolved on several fronts. As we head into 2024, threat actors are still experimenting at warp speed. In this Power Series, we’ll discuss what we saw this year, what’s coming in 2024 and what it all means for your cybersecurity program.
