The increase in cyber-attacks and evolving threat of ransomware has led to a rapid rise in the amount of security and IT vendors marketing themselves as having Managed Detection & Response capabilities. This has created a disparity in the level of service many security leaders should expect from their Managed Detection & Response partner. Our Chief Hacking Officer, Dave Kennedy (@hackingdave) and Head of Cyber Services, Joe McMann, alongside featured speaker, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Jeff Pollard, will delve into the key features and benefits of MDR as outlined in The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection And Response, Q2 2023 report.
Join us as they talk the critical criteria that security leaders should evaluate when considering Managed Detection and Response and what customers are asking from the providers not only before they bring them into their environment, but also during their continued engagement and relationship.
