Osirium join forces with the RANT Forum at the London IP Expo to debate some of the issues around Cyber Security.


What do we mean today by a ‘targeted attack’

Today, targeted attacks are much more sophisticated and by investing more man hours into reconnaissance and intelligence gathering, attackers have discovered they can get the keys to the kingdom by targeting your IT administrators.

These attacks are short, sharp and yield a much higher success rate: more like a sniper than a foot soldier. But how can we guard against attacks targeting what should be the most tech-savvy members of an organisation.

The Keynote speaker for the 7th Oct event is:

Andy Harris, Head of Engineering, Osirium
