Defensive cybersecurity is a bit like driving on Rainbow Road: you must be on high alert for any obstacles — otherwise you risk falling off course.
Start your engines and get ready for a Mario Kart-themed adventure, where you’ll learn how to harden your environment against every hurdle that you may encounter — from red shells and banana peels to “bob-ombs.”
Dive into the Mario Kart universe with Amanda Berlin, Lead Incident Detection Engineer, and Larry Pesce, Principal Managing Consultant and Director of Research and Development, InGuardians, and learn about defensive techniques against many types of attack techniques. You’ll learn:
- Common attack methods in both Mario Kart and in cybersecurity — and how to dodge them
- Power-ups and speed boosts to quickly and easily boost your cybersecurity posture
- Defensive techniques to cross the finish line as a winner
