BOSTON - IT security and data protection firm Sophos today announced that security expert Chester Wisniewski will be conducting free live malware attack demonstrations in New York City on Tuesday August 17, 2010 and Toronto on Thursday August 19, 2010. Attendees will learn the top five things they need to do to better protect their business from today's sophisticated cybercriminals.

Malware has evolved throughout the past decade to become a major industry in itself. It has a complicated economic infrastructure and a population of well-organized, well-funded criminal gangs; highly motivated and highly trained programmers churning out massive volumes of malicious code and exploits; and talented creatives thinking up new and more sophisticated methods of bypassing inadequate networks.

Businesses today need to mitigate these threats to better protect their organization, employees, customers, prospects, business affiliates - especially with tighter regulations (industry, state, and federal) and budgets.

Join Sophos security expert Chester Wisniewski to learn more about the changing threat landscape and get practical advice on threat protection strategies.
