    • DESCRIPTION: The U.S. National Cyber Security Alliance found that 60 percent of small companies are unable to sustain their businesses over six months after a cyber-attack. Some companies will inevitably fail due to cyber threats. Every day, these businesses are confronted with new data points, threats, risks, and regulations, while managing their internal data sources and alerting. All of that noise can make it difficult to weed out what really matters. In this session, we will discuss comprehensive security solutions and review challenges, how to orchestrate a response, and more to build a stronger posture that will help you separate the signal from the noise.
