Description: Cybersecurity threats have grown exponentially in size, scope, and severity over the past couple of decades. But organizations continue to invest in securing their perimeter via a reactive approach, as opposed to identifying cyber threats on the internet and other attack surfaces using more proactive measures. This panel explores the evolving nature of complex attack surfaces and issues that need to be addressed in this context.
