Converged Technology Group Warns NY Metro-Area CIOs: You May Need a New Strategy for Handling Today's Advanced Security Attacks

Managed Services Partner to Host New York City Cybersecurity Workshop and Hands-On Lab

NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfortunately, advanced cyberthreats are something every CIO must contend with as attackers deepen their skillsets and digital sophistication. Aided by vulnerabilities inherent in aging enterprise infrastructures as well as back-door opportunities made possible as the Internet of Things (IoT) grows and businesses and consumers alike become more connected in every way, cybercriminals are developing new and ever more ingenious ways to launch and carry out their attacks. Because so many attackers are able to evade detection until data and intellectual property have already been stolen, Converged Technology Group (www.convergedtechgroup.com), an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, says the goal for IT professionals must shift from eradication to one of awareness, prevention and remediation.

"The conversations we're having with clients today absolutely validate the fact that advanced cyberattacks are on the rise," says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. "We're seeing a year over year increase in all kinds of malevolent activity and it's something that CIOs must be ready to address. Considering the state of today's evolving threat landscape, every organization needs a risk mitigation strategy, something we're prepared to help our customers explore."

Understanding the Current Cyberthreat Landscape 
On Friday, December 9th, Converged Technology Group will host an event designed to arm CIOs with the latest information on identifying and mitigating the risk from today's most damaging cyberthreats.

The event is dedicated to broadening the conversation around the attack continuum – before, during and after an attack. During the event, attendees will also take part in an interactive lab demonstrating cutting-edge technologies like Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) that address persistent threats.
