by Cory  Sober, Systems Engineering Manager, Fortinet

Join Cory for the first in a two part series on Advanced Persistent Threats and how to detect them is something every large organization struggles with.  Yes, you have a wide variety of tools but how do you get them to all work together to get rapid answers to the time critical question of "Do I have a compromise and what is my exposure?"   Join Cory in this first of a two part series where he does a deep dive in how to use modern commercial tools including Network Access Control, Sandbox technology and full fledged Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to detect Advanced Persistent Threats so you can quickly isolate and remediate compromises.

Cory is a Systems Engineering Manager at Fortinet with decades of hands on experience and holds several technical certifications relating to security, networking and systems.

In addition to being a security and networking expert, Cory is a graduate of the Reserve Officers Law Enforcement Academy and a member of Infragard
