RSA Conference 2023 Session: What You Need to Know about macOS Cyberthreats and More

As evidenced by the widening scope of the recent 3CX supply chain attack, macOS® has become a primary target for threat actors. In fact, analysis by the BlackBerry® Research and Intelligence Team finds that attacks against macOS systems are on the rise globally, and represent a growing concern for CISOs and security teams.

BlackBerry leaders will share factors driving this unsettling trend, and what organizations can do to prevent these attacks, during a session at the RSA Conference (RSAC) 2023 in San Francisco next week.

The session is one among many opportunities to discuss and collaborate with BlackBerry threat researchers and executives at the conference. Our experts are also available at RSAC 2023, April 24–27, in the Moscone Center North Hall, Booth #N-5361, and stand ready to help your organization “punch above its weight class” to achieve optimum security outcomes.
