Lastline Webinar on Fighting Ransomware Bolsters Educational Value of UK Security Serious Week
Company’s support includes sponsoring second annual Unsung Heroes Awards
REDWOOD CITY, CA – September 20, 2017 – Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced network-based malware protection, today announced that it is participating in the Security Serious Week Virtual Summit, a week’s worth of webinars with the theme of Bridging the Cyber Skills Gap through Diversity and Creativity. The company’s support consists of an educational webinar on effective strategies for combatting ransomware without breaking the bank, delivered on Wednesday, October 4 by John Cloonan, security expert and head of products for Lastline.
“The essence of the Security Serious Week Virtual Summit is to encourage companies and individuals to think about their security – so that the UK becomes a safer place to do business,” said Yvonne Eskenzi, founder of Security Serious Week and co-Founder of Eskenzi PR. “It is no secret that the UK is hugely under-resourced when it comes to having skilled people to protect our businesses and residents, especially with the increasing and constant onslaught of cyber-attacks. The contributions, as sponsors and educators, from companies like Lastline, are essential to achieving our mission of educating security professionals.”
Security Serious Week takes place October 2–6 as part of European Cyber Security Awareness Month. Lastline is also honored to sponsor a key element of Security Serious Week, the second annual Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards. The event honors the unsung heroes who work tirelessly to avert disasters by defending their networks from the daily onslaught of breaches.
“I’m honored to be able to participate in Security Serious Week and sponsor the Unsung Heroes Awards,” commented John Cloonan. “Lastline’s roots are in education, having been founded by three leading security academics. Accordingly, we’re committed to sharing information and resources that aid security professionals in keeping their companies safe from cyberattacks. While technology such as ours can improve the productivity of security teams and the effectiveness of their breach protection efforts, it’s still essential to ensure analysts are knowledgeable and up to date on attack techniques.”
