Cybersecurity and Military Operations Experts Come Together to Educate Market on Cyber Resiliency

Waltham, MA, October 21, 2014 – CounterTack, a pioneer in delivering real-time endpoint threat detection, context and visibility around targeted attacks, will be hosting an exclusive roundtable event that will focus on applying the concept of resiliency in the military capacity to the cybersecurity industry.

The panel, “Bringing Awareness to Cyber Resiliency,” will take place on October 27, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. EST at the Hilton Mark Center Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia.

Today’s cyberattacks threaten the fabric of the civilized world; attacks are occurring with such frequency and vigor that companies across all industries, are left feeling instantly defeated. Taking the fight to adversaries and becoming more resilient in the face of attacks, organizations can turn the tables on attackers with the right combination of strategy and technology to withstand attacks and exploits, and defend the enterprise while still absorbing, but not succumbing to collateral damage incurred.

The panel, “Bringing Awareness to Cyber Resiliency,” will feature a distinguished group of cybersecurity and military operations experts. The roundtable will offer advice on how mapping military strategies to enterprise security tactics will enable organizations to better protect themselves against cyber adversaries.

Renowned cybersecurity journalist and managing editor of Bloomberg News, Michael Riley, will moderate discussion amongst experts:
