We joined up with Carbon Black to deliver a security-based Lunch & Learn session on the 27th February. The session was designed to gain a better understanding of modern threats including how threat actors operate, the low cost and effort involved in demolishing a business’ productivity, and how Carbon Black can help protect against these threats.
Set up in the Diverse boardroom, this session was delivered by our Chief Technologist Nathan Manzi who has been a key resource through the development of our Security Operations Centre (SOC). We were also joined by David Dowling from Carbon Black, the Security Business Unit for VMware.
