A couple years ago, Bruce Schneier said that against an APT attacker, 'the absolute level of your security is what's important. It doesn't matter how secure you are compared to your peers; all that matters is whether you're secure enough to keep him out.' Those words have proven true over and over again. APT attackers don't move on to the next target as soon as they see your security is a little above average.

In this age, when you have to do everything right to protect your network, it pays to look at what other people do wrong and learn from their mistakes. We are going to do just that in this webinar. Based on public and unpublished APT incidents, weve gathered a list of 9 different things that show up repeatedly.  These are gleaned from real-world scenarios. Well look at how the attacks succeeded due in large part to the mistakes made. Ill discuss from a technical standpoint how each one of these allowed one or more attacks to actually occur.
