Former FBI Cyber Agent, Author and Keynote speaker, Scott Augenbaum and Former Microsoft CIO/CISO Jim DuBois to Headline Webinar on the Secrets to Preventing Ransomware Hosted by Cyemptive Technologies

Snohomish, Washington  (September 29, 2021) — Cyemptive Technologies, a provider of preemptive cybersecurity products and technology and winner of the Department of Homeland Security’s national competition for most innovative security-related solution in the market, will host a Fireside Chat featuring Scott Augenbaum, author, keynote speaker and retired FBI Cyber Division Agent and Jim DuBois, former Microsoft CIO and CISO where they will highlight what is working and not working in the industry, best practices including ways to move to superior cyber-hygiene, defense-in-depth, zero trust, and pre-emptive protection.  The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, October 20th at 11 am Pacific Time.

During this interactive Fireside Chat, Augenbaum will highlight anecdotes from his experience in the FBI working with organizations in the Cyber Crime Fraud Unit and Computer Intrusion divisions.  DuBois will offer perspectives from his experience at Microsoft and how he worked to protect this well-known publicly traded company and their customers from cyber threats and attacks.  Both speakers will look at traditional and new approaches to reveal some of the secrets of keeping your organization cyber-safe.

Augenbaum said, “Having worked in the FBI’s Cyber Division, we handled all types of attack vectors and preventative measures.  Moving from a proactive to a pre-emptive cybersecurity posture provides the only path to kill the ransomware chain and preventing and stopping catastrophic compromises.”

“At Microsoft, we used best practices and good cyber-hygiene as an important part of the protection both internally and for our customers,” said Jim DuBois.  “Today, ransomware attacks are more persistent, more prevalent, and substantially more damaging than in the past.  The world needs to adopt solutions and practices to improve protection by moving them from good cyber-hygiene into superior cyber-hygiene.”

Rob Pike, Founder and CEO of Cyemptive said, “We are excited to have two world class speakers review their experiences and contrast the differences from what worked in the past against the new threats the world is facing today.  We are confident that Cyemptive can move organizations into a pre-emptive, superior cyber-hygiene posture and we look forward to what secrets Scott and Jim reveal to our audience.”

The webinar is free of charge and interested parties can register for the webinar here.
