Fortinet Keynote: The Disruptive Shift in Existing and Emerging Threats

Speaker: Hassan El-Masri is a Security Strategist with Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs.
Threat intelligence from the second half of 2020, and the first few months of 2021, demonstrates an unprecedented cyber threat landscape where cyber adversaries maximized the constantly expanding attack surface to scale threat efforts around the world.

Adversaries proved to be highly adaptable, creating waves of disruptive and sophisticated attacks. They targeted the abundance of remote workers or learners outside the traditional network, but also showed renewed agility in attempts to target digital supply chains and even the core network.

Hassan has more than 20 years of information technology industry experience, with extensive knowledge in many areas of networking and cybersecurity traversing several industries. His specialization is in security research, identity access management, and deception technologies.
