Synopsis and overview of the session

In the past two decades of tech booms, busts, and bubbles, two things have stayed the same – hackers are still finding ways to breach security measures in place and the endpoint remains the primary target. Plus, after the need for a rapid shift to remote working in 2020, organizations accelerated their digital transformation plans, fast-tracking the adoption of cloud technologies, and opening their doors to even more attack vectors with unmanaged endpoints.

As the technological innovations take place, strange beliefs spread as fast as malware.

Focus Network in partnership with SentinelOne are inviting an elite group of leading IT Security leaders from across Australia  to discuss 5 statements commonly heard in the corridors of enterprises, put them under the microscope and, once and for all, conclude – are they Confirmed or are they Busted?

Join us for this riveting myth-busting lunch happening on 13th April, at The Babylon Restaurant, Sydney.

Some of the key learnings will be around:

  • How are you managing digital transformation in yourIT environments
  • How automation and Behavioral AI have unburdened SOC teams and maximised operational efficiency
  • Key questions you must ask when considering XDR solutions

Here are the main myths we’ll be checking out. So, what do you think, are they busted or confirmed?

  • “EDR always needs a large SOC team.”
  • “All next-gen EDR vendors are the same. They all scored similar results in the MITRE Att&ck framework.”
  • “My company will never be a target for ransomware. We don’t hold anything of value for hackers.”
  • “Restoring the backup manually is the only option for business continuity after a breach/ransomware attack”.
  • “XDR is more effective when all technologies are integrated from one single vendor”
