Any Mortal Kombat player worth their salt knows that an opponent executing one of their signature finishing moves means that it’s time to go into survival mode.

The same goes for defensive security. Certain techniques spell trouble with a capital T and should raise the alarms for all security and IT teams. 

What should you be on the lookout for, exactly? We’ll break it down for you in a Mortal Kombat-themed event that will trigger nostalgia for the arcade in your hometown’s mall. Join Brian Johnson, pentester and 7 Minute Security podcast host, and Amanda Berlin, Lead Incident Detection Engineer, to learn: 

  • Surefire signs of attacker activity in your environment (and what they mean)
  • How to detect ‘finishing moves’ using a SIEM
  • Ways to test your tools’ readiness for a cyberattack 

This interactive, conversational-style session encourages questions and engagement with viewers – so sign up today for access to our security experts.
