Cofense Annual Phishing Defense Summit: September 23-24, 2019

Cofense has announced its fourth annual Phishing Defense Summit and User Conference will be taking place on September 23-24, 2019 in Orlando, Florida.

The event – Cofense Submerge 2019 – provides attendees with detailed information on the latest security threats, new phishing tactics being used in real world attacks, and the latest incident response trends.

Practitioners on the front lines will be on hand to offer advice on effective phishing defense strategies and the latest best practices to adopt to deal with the growing threat from phishing. First hand experiences will be shared to allow attendees to learn from problems other have experienced and advice will be given on how to plug common security gaps.

The most common cybersecurity threats will also be discussed, including ransomware trends, incident response, malware analysis, and improving employee resiliency to phishing and other cyberattacks.

Industry experts will also be on hand to discuss the current threat landscape and the most dangerous and damaging phishing attacks over the past 12 months along with the lessons that can be learned from those attacks. Keynote speakers include FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia, Cofense CEO and co-founder Rohyt Belain, and Cofense Co-founder and CTO, Aaron Higbee.

“With more than 90 percent of breaches attributed to successful phishing campaigns, it is critical for the industry to come together and discuss the latest threats and strategies for defending against them,” said Mandia. “The annual Cofense Submerge conference is an excellent opportunity to crowdsource the latest phishing threats and incident response strategies, and I’m excited to help advance this discussion and provide security professionals with the support needed to continue the fight.”

The event is open to Cofense customers and non-customers. Users of Cofense solutions will have the opportunity to learn best practices to get the most out of Cofense solutions.

“Not only do we plan to provide immense value to our existing customers and partners through updated training sessions, but we strongly believe that this community has so much to offer the general public,” said Royht Belani.
