Although I’m excited to be at the RSA Conference with my Morphisec colleagues, it reminds me of the impetus for starting our Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship. Of 28 keynote speakers at RSAC, only seven are women, and six of these were added at the last minute following a string of scathing tweets and articles. This 25% figure seems to be the average percentage in the general sessions as well. I attended several that were one woman in a panel of four, a few that had only male speakers and a single session that had a majority female panel. If I had to guess the overall attendee and exhibitor gender split I’d say it fell along the same lines, but that percent is skewed by the number of women simply scanning badges.
2018 is barely underway and we’re already seeing a whole new crop of cyber threats. Are you ready? Meet with Morphisec experts in person to find out how to build a lean, cost-effective security stack that protects your organization from whatever attackers come up with next. There’s just no substitute for a face-to-face exchange of ideas - come see us at one of these upcoming events to get all your cybersecurity questions answered.
In about two weeks, I’ll be participating in the Mid Market CIO Forum in Austin, Texas. Events such as these are vital as they bring IT professionals together in a setting that is intimate enough to get real answers to their unique set of challenges. For cybersecurity practitioners in particular, the market is incredibly confusing. On top of a profusion of various technologies you have a rapidly changing threat landscape where the threat of the day seems to dictate the conversation.
The article below was sent to attendees of the Mid Market Forum, but is relevant to many of us in the security field. Only when asking different questions, moving beyond the standard security discussion, will security practitioners find the set of solutions that meets the specific needs of their business.
One of the biggest cybersecurity events of the year, held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is almost upon us. The 2017 RSA Conference in San Francisco opens next week, and Morphisec's top experts will be on hand to discuss your security and business challenges. Learn more about Morphisec Endpoint Threat Prevention – the first and only solution to use Moving Target Defense technology to prevent zero-days, evasive malware, ransomware and advanced attacks in real-time.

Black Hat USA is in full swing, and cyber experts in every field have descended on Vegas to catch up on the latest cyber threat research, see the latest security technologies and cram in as much hacking and fun as possible into a few short days. However, despite their obvious dedication to the industry, these same industry experts do not see a rosy cyber future.
For the second year in a row, Black Hat organizers conducted a survey of conference attendees, publishing the results in a report titled, “2016: The Rising Tide of Cybersecurity Concern.”
Next week begins Black Hat USA 2016, held July 30 – August 4 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. In its 19th year, the iconic cyber security conference still retains an air of mystique despite its acquired patina of glitz and business. Black Hat begins with four days of intensive hacker training, delving in-depth into the tools and techniques the bad guys are using. The ability to think like a hacker is of enormous importance in developing better cyber defenses – what better place to practice it than Sin City?
Last week’s Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit crammed several months’ worth of information, analyses, workshops and networking into 3 ½ short days. As expected, everything related to cyber security was particularly hot. Though many messages were familiar, a shift could be detected, a recognition that the landscape is transforming and innovation is called for.
Join Morphisec at Infosecurity Europe 2016 at Olypmia in London June 7-9. Marking our recently established partnership, we are thrilled to exhibit together with XML International, a leading global provider of consulting and authorized Morphisec distributor.
Last week, Morphisec officially came out of the cyber security closet at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. It was a great opportunity to hear some impressive speakers, network with like-minded peers and take the Morphisec solution out for its first public airing.
