ISSA-LA Sept 20 Dinner Mtg – Strategies for Preventing Account Takeovers

September 20 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT

Join us for an important panel discussion on how companies are securing accounts.

In almost every attack, your adversary will try to breach one of your corporate accounts and gain unauthorized access to your internal systems. This is the session where we discuss how to stop that from happening. 

Join industry leaders at our upcoming panel speaker event where we explore the latest trends and strategies for securing employee accounts. Hear their approaches to securing employee accounts, how they minimize risk from human error, their perspectives on top risks and changes in the industry, and common concerns of leaders. We’ll also discuss specific threats, like MFA bypass, and how leaders are mitigating them.

A full buffet dinner will be provided, including drinks!
