Building a Strong Security Culture


According to Proofpoint’s 2022 State of the Phish Report, 73% of organizations have conducted formal security awareness training. And yet, only 53% 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 organization 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 organization go beyond training and start building a security culture?

Join this Power Series as our panelists discuss:

  • The challenges of traditional training
  • What could impact security culture
  • How to get executive support
  • What CISOs can do to help build a strong culture
  • Signs of a strong culture and metrics to track

Fighting Advanced Threats with AI and ML


Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are transforming cybersecurity with powerful new threat detection and data protection engines. Recent advances in both areas represent game-changing technological leaps that could reset the balance between attacker and defender. These innovations promise to be especially effective against human-focused threats such as business email compromise (BEC), supply chain attacks, phishing and ransomware.

But the concepts have also resulted in a wave of hype and hyperbole. Learn what’s science fiction and science fact. Our panel of experts will discuss the history and progress of AI and ML in cybersecurity. And they’ll show how the latest advances can help your team become more effective and efficient.

Join this Power Series to learn about:

  • Cutting through AI/ML hype
  • How AL and ML combats social engineering at scale
  • Why all AI/ML models and datasets are not created equal
  • What to look for in an AL/ML-powered solution
  • Which cybersecurity problems lend themselves to AI/ML and which don't
