April’s Newsletter: Next-gen Cyber Security, Rain or Shine

By April 30, 2019September 30th, 2019Newsletter

A botanical garden is a collection of plants for the purposes of public display, research and education. Or, as a denizen of Chicago, a preferred reprieve from late April snow storms, welcomingly warm, green and fragrant. Such was the case this past Saturday as I escaped 3 inches of snow within the climate-controlled Lincoln Park Conservatory.

Snow isn’t on the forecast this Thursday, but it does call for rain and temps in the 40s. Escape the weather with us at Check Point’s CPX Chicago, of which we’re a proud sponsor, located in the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier. We’ll look at the next generation of security technologies and equip you with the information and tools you need to combat emerging threats—rain or shine.

25% of phishing emails bypass Office 365 security

Email phishing is one of the most successfully used attack vectors that lead to cyber security breaches. The nature of the cloud provides even more vectors of which hackers take advantage, and even broader access to critical data when successful.
