LEESBURG, (VA.) July 13, 2016 – PhishMe, a global provider of phishing defense solutions for the enterprise, has announced that registration is open for its inaugural phishing defense summit and user conference, called PhishMe Submerge. This first-of-its-kind event, which is taking place Sept. 28-29 in Orlando, FL, will bring together industry experts with practitioners who are on the front lines to discuss the security threat landscape and share phishing defense strategies. Featured speakers will include Grady Summers, CTO of FireEye as the opening keynote speaker, along with PhishMe’s Co-Founders, Rohyt Belani, CEO, and Aaron Higbee, CTO.
“PhishMe Submerge has been a goal of ours that we have finally realized,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder of PhishMe. “With over 900 customers focused on phishing defenses, we wanted to gather their collective experience in combating the most prevalent and damaging attack method. For the first time, our customers can come together to learn and gain insights from each other, as well as share their experiences with non-customers. We are keeping the event open to the public as the entire industry can benefit from this information, helping to educate others on the best practices and lessons learned of those in the trenches of real-life scenarios.”
Open to both PhishMe customers and non-customers, PhishMe Submerge will give attendees the opportunity to learn from industry experts, while networking with peers and other PhishMe users from all over the world. It will offer two different speaker tracks for attendees: one focusing on how-to tips and hands-on sessions, and one covering prevalent threats, breaking news and trends from industry experts. The sessions also will cover best practices, case studies, and instructions on the most current and important aspects of cybersecurity, including the latest phishing and ransomware threats, incident response, malware analysis, etc.
“With the majority of breaches resulting from a successful phishing attempt, it is important for the industry to come together and discuss the latest threats and strategies for defending against them,” said Grady Summers, senior vice president and chief technology officer of FireEye. “I’m excited to help advance this discussion and provide security professionals with new ideas and resources at the PhishMe Submerge conference.”
Registration for the PhishMe Submerge Phishing Defense Summit and User Conference is open with early bird discounts available until August 15. Those interested in submitting a speaker proposal can send an abstract on the PhishMe Submerge site: http://bit.ly/SubmergeConPR
