Webinar: Safeguard Citizens and Students from Cyber Attacks

This past year, more than 100 state and local governments and educational (SLED) institutions across the United States learned how defenseless traditional endpoint protection solutions are against ransomware attacks. Despite the overwhelming trend, prevention of successful cyber attacks in the growing attack surface of connected schools and entities is possible.  

March 10, 2020 at 9:00 AM PDT | 12:00 PM EDT 
Webinar length: 1 hour


Join us March 10th to learn how SLED organizations can prevent ransomware from breaching their defenses with artificial-intelligence-based security solutions from BlackBerry Cylance. During this informative webinar, BlackBerry Cylance Global Vice President of Sales Engineering Rich Thompson and Vice President, SLED Marc Doniger will discuss:

  • Security challenges facing SLED organizations and the importance of adopting a prevention-first security posture.
  • How CylancePROTECT® with SE Labs-verified Predictive Advantage stops Emotet, WannaCry, and Goldeneye from executing with mathematical models dating back to long before the ransomware was first detected in the wild.
  • Why Forrester's Total Economic Impact study concluded that CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS® endpoint protection, detection, and response solutions can deliver a 99% ROI in three years.

If you have a stake in safeguarding citizens, students, and critical operations from impact from cyber attacks, then we urge you to attend this essential security briefing.
