Advanced Threat Protection

Online: Wednesday, October 13, 2021  | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Prevent, detect and respond to new and sophisticated attacks

While public sector organizations are looking to harness the power of information networks to enhance business operations, increase efficiencies, and improve citizen service and support, at the same time, private data, intellectual property, and cyberinfrastructure are increasingly be compromised by deliberate attacks. With these cyber threats continuously on the rise, despite heightened attention and unprecedented levels of security investment, robust protection is needed if the government is to retain public confidence and trust. Halting threats before they breach systems, disrupting activity in progress, and interrupting the lifecycle of an attack to stop a threat from progressing are critical priorities for public sector organizations.

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) employs a proactive approach to security by identifying and impeding advanced threats before an organization’s most critical assets have a chance to become compromised. To achieve this goal, organizations need real-time visibility and the ability to prioritize threats and data awareness. Public Sector Network’s Advanced Threat Protection Virtual Event will highlight strategies to help foster a collaborative approach to develop a sufficient defense strategy, implementation, and management plan, and drive effective ATP within your organization.
