As Summer comes to end, and the weather begins to cool, in-person events are making a comeback in Arizona and other states across the U.S. This month, we will be attending the Space Symposium, and in September we will be at the Arizona Technology Summit. Other than were you can meet us, we have more news to share with you!
We are excited to be attending this year's Arizona Technology Summit.
The 12th Annual Arizona Technology Summit will be held on September 8th, 2021 at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ.
The theme for this year's event is “Strategically Accelerating our Businesses through IT and Security." This event is targeted for the Technology and Security community. Attendees consist of IT/IS Executives and Direct reports across all verticals within the state of Arizona interested in Networking, Researching/Learning, Career Advancement, and Purchasing. We hope to see you there!
Last year in 2020, cyber actors readily exploited recently disclosed vulnerabilities to compromise unpatched systems. The exploitation of more recently disclosed software flaws in 2020 probably stems, in part, from the expansion of remote work options amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The rapid shift and increased use of remote work options, such as VPNs and cloud-based environments, likely placed additional burden on cyber defenders struggling to maintain and keep pace with routine software patching. Four of the most targeted vulnerabilities in 2020 affected remote work, VPNs, or cloud-based technologies. Many VPN gateway devices remained unpatched during 2020, with the growth of remote work options challenging the ability of organizations to conduct rigorous patch management.
Review and Patch!
Artificial intelligence (AI) drives many of today's major innovations in software and hardware, from social media chatbots to self-driving cars. In the cybersecurity world, vendors are frequently including AI capabilities to their solutions to provide enhanced detections of sophisticated threats. A careful balance between machine learning and human intelligence helps eliminate noise and accelerate threat detection and response. For example, security experts can create custom policies that enable AI to filter out events that don't pose high security risks. With AI automatically taking care of such rules-based scenarios, human analysts can focus on suspicious activities that require human intuition and intelligence.
