RSA APT Summit Findings

In July 2011, RSA and TechAmerica hosted a closed-door meeting with more than a hundred of the most influential security leaders in industry and government on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs). The highly interactive event drew out many key insights on APTs, as well as broader advanced threats deployed by today’s most sophisticated attackers. Delegates discussed the complex topic of managing the security of end users, who are often the entry point of choice for advanced threats. The Summit included a discussion on our industry’s problems with information sharing on advanced threats in both the public and private sector. The lack of threat information exchange allows attackers to beta test attack methods on one enterprise to perfect them before unleashing them on their actual target.
