Another day, another breach. And while the visibility of cybersecurity challenges, threats and legislation has reached epic proportions, organizations still fail to effectively prevent, detect and respond to today's threats. The root cause isn't in an advancing adversary alone; public and private organizations continue to focus on the wrong things, take the easy way out and miss the obvious.

This webcast explored the top ten reasons why agencies and private companies are failing, and provided simple tactics to change the security posture in public and private organizations. Attendees gained insight in to common attack mechanisms and trends, the assets most often targeted by cybercriminals and new tricks that an organization may be overlooking.
