Cyber deception can turn the tables on attackers by making them question what they believe to be true and untrue about your network. Presenter Ryan Victory will help us explore the basics of cyber deception and how you can use deception techniques to influence the beliefs and actions of threat actors targeting your organization. We’ll cover the principles of cyber deception, the deception-planning process, an example of using cyber deception to combat credential stuffing, and ways you can get started with deception today.
