Webinar Series Features Industry Experts and Corporate Executives
Fighting Cybercrime on the Frontlines

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CISO Street™, the premier online community for cybersecurity professionals, today announced the 2021 cybersecurity webinar schedule for CISO Street, a media property sponsored by Accellion.

CISO Street is hosting a webinar series devoted to the evolving threat landscape and what cybersecurity executives and their organizations can do to mitigate the risk of a cyberattack.

CISOs and their organizations are facing a revolution in cybercrime. Organized crime syndicates, nation states and other sophisticated bad actors deploy massive resources to steal corporate data. The Dark Web hosts an organized marketplace where brokers connect buyers and sellers in commodities like stolen PII and zero-day vulnerabilities.

Cybercrime, particularly malware and supply chain attacks, has in turn dramatically accelerated, culminating in a cumulative loss of $4.2 billion in the United States in 2020. This figure excludes the legal, forensics and other related expenses in the aftermath of a breach, adding billions more in losses. CISOs must respond with a revolution of their own, a revolution in cybersecurity.

Moderated by Laureen Smith, Accellion’s Vice President for Global Strategic Alliances and CISO Street host, these webinars feature strategic approaches and best practices to cybersecurity’s biggest challenges, including ransomware, legacy software, incident response, and more. Previous webinars have featured executives from Microsoft, FireEye Mandiant, Credit Suisse, Accellion, Hunton Andrews Kurth, and other leading organizations.

Upcoming webinars for the remainder of 2021, held on the second Thursday of each month, include:
