Thwarting the most advanced cyber threats

Cyber security is no longer what it used to be. That’s because cyber threats have become more persistent, sophisticated and voluminous, and the switch to hybrid working has only accelerated this trend. Rob Shapland from Falanx Cyber explores how to navigate this new reality without slipping into complacence or excessive knee-jerk reaction.

With a distributed workforce, the attack surface has expanded beyond the known territory. With new and more sophisticated threats coming in every day, traditional cyber security wisdom alone cannot win the battle. That’s why modern enterprises are changing their paradigm.

In this episode, we sat down with Rob Shapland to discuss what the future holds. Rob has over 15 years’ experience in cyber security and began his journey as a penetration tester. He is now a well-regarded thought leader in the industry. He has appeared on Good Morning Britain, ITN News, BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show, and Talk Radio Europe. He appeared on Channel 4’s “Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back,” and showed how smart devices can be hacked into.
