*This blog was updated on 27 September to reflect the sold-out sessions*

These VIP sessions are now fully booked but do stay tuned for the on-demand links to these sessions once we have wrapped up ConnectIT. We still have many more sessions for you to attend, please take a look at the ConnectIT event page. 

This year’s ConnectIT event is already brimming with innovation and digital transformation sessions from thought leaders within Trustmarque and across our wide partner network. But did you also know that we are topping this off with not one but three social sessions to reignite your social side? After the unusual 18 months, we have all lived through, we need all it!

Take your innovation, automation and acceleration to the next beer, oops, we mean gear!

After the fall-out of displaced teams and restrictions on office working, we hope that these sessions provide you with an opportunity to relax with peers and to hear from experts in their field, whilst savouring a drink and a tasty morsel. To keep the sessions as interactive as possible, we have capped the attendee numbers so we advise booking your place early to avoid disappointment. We will be sending out some complimentary food and drink to your door (details below), it is essential you book by Thursday 14th October via the ConnectIT 2021 website.

The session will last around an hour and will be fully interactive to give you the chance to “wine down” with your peers. Complimentary samples will be sent to pre-registered attendees.

Email fraud is rife – business email compromise (BEC) is costing companies billions, and consumer phishing is at an all-time high.  The majority of these email scams are also preventable. Utilising the power of email authentication, Email Fraud Defence protects your organisation from all phishing attacks that spoof trusted domains. Visibility of who is sending email across your email ecosystem allows you to authorise all legitimate senders and block email scams before they reach your employees, customers, and business partners. Find out why 30% of the Fortune 1000 are fixing the number one vulnerability in email with Proofpoint Email Fraud Defence.

Pre-registered attendees will be sent a breakfast bundle directly to their door. You’ll also have the opportunity to share your experiences with your peers and ask questions via an interactive Q&A session with the presenters.

VIP session: LogPoint Beer Tasting: Faster Detection and Response with MITRE ATT&CK

**Due to demand we have had to close registrations for this session. The recording will be made available after ConnectIT**

LogPoint Beer Tasting: Faster Detection and Response with MITRE ATT&CK

When: Day 3 – Thursday 21 October at 4pm

Hosted by: Logpoint

What to expect:

The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a tool to help security teams create a more effective security defence. ATT&CK uses open standards and is essentially a database of documented threat behaviours.

Using the ATT&CK framework, analysts can track threat actor behaviour to speed up incident response and investigation. When combined with a SIEM or UEBA solution, ATT&CK bridges the gap between why an alert is firing and what it means.

In this webinar, we will look at how security analysts can use the ATT&CK framework to more quickly understand how an alert relates to a larger attack so they can take the necessary steps to protect their business.



What else to expect at ConnectIT 2021

With over 20 sessions over the course of four days, we will bring you an agenda packed with content, thought leadership and interactive discussion led by leaders in the industry. You’ll have the opportunity to ask the experts throughout via live Q&A and shape your 2022 goals and objectives. Whatever they are, we are in IT together.

To keep up-to-date with the agenda, make sure you register early and avoid missing out. Registrations for the online social events must be made by Thursday 14 October as we need time to send food and drink to your home.
