Join Comcast Business leaders and industry experts in a series of webinars that explore how you can protect your business’ network from the ever- increasing security threats.
As the network landscape has shifted around the US, the move to more distributed environments has created an opening for vastly greater security threats. According to UN counterterrorism chief Vladimir Voronkov, in the first quarter of 2020 alone phishing websites increased by 350%, with many targeting hospitals and healthcare systems. Akamai data reveals that during a 60-day period starting in early March, there was an astonishing 447% increase in requests to access websites that were potentially malicious. At a time when operational agility is critical, the volume and persistence of these attacks threatens to stop businesses in their tracks.
Join us for the first in a three-part webinar series from Comcast Business. In this webinar, our panelists discuss the nature of the current threat environment: who the scammers are, their tactics, and how they’re gaining access; the rise of specific scams and hacks during the pandemic; and their potential impacts on infrastructures, networks, and devices. We’ll explore the ways in which SMB and mid-market businesses are as vulnerable to threats as large enterprises, with a focus on DNS-layer security as a foundational line of defense.

Cyberthreats have scaled dramatically since the advent of COVID-19, with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and phishing, in particular, rising at alarming rates. At a time when businesses and networks require agility and flexibility, the ability to address and remediate these assaults in near real-time is crucial for any organization. Yet, for every threat, there is a solution. For example, DNS filtering can identify and nullify the impact of malicious websites and filter out harmful content.
Join us for the second in a three-part webinar series from Comcast Business. In part 1, we explored the range of current threats and their potential impacts. In part 2, our panelists cover a range of solutions for meeting threats head on. We explore remediation from infrastructure, network, and device perspectives, with a focus on arming your business and people with the tools and tactics needed for proactive protection.
With the advent of COVID-19, cyberattacks increased dramatically. To put the threat in perspective, from January to April 2020 alone, Interpol detected approximately 907,000 spam messages, 737 incidents related to malware, and 48,000 malicious URLs. The massive uptick in online scams and phishing, disruptive and data-harvesting malware, malicious domains, and misinformation requires a truly comprehensive set of solutions geared to protecting infrastructure, networks, and devices. The right solutions need to be proactive, ensuring the ability of networks and businesses to remain agile as the environment shifts around them.
Join us for the last in a three-part webinar series from Comcast Business. In the parts 1 and 2, we explored the current threat environment and real-time remediation. In part 3, our panelists discuss what it takes to create a comprehensive layered solution. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, we’ll outline an architecture that works for your business.
