Event Agenda

Wed Mar 23, 1:00 PM -2:00 PM | Digital Webinar

The Art of Termination

Termination is one of the most difficult tasks to perform, but because the process is so emotional and challenging, terminations are often rushed and hastily planned, despite the fact that the consequences of a poorly handled termination can be substantial (harassment claim, litigation, employee suicide, or injury/death to others). This presentation will discuss how to plan a termination in advance; how to identify high-risk terminations and include a threat assessment process; how to use timing to your benefit; how to notify the employee; how to create soft landings; how to manage the logistics of termination meetings; and how to conduct follow-up actions if appropriate, to include law enforcement assistance.

Defending Against, Investigating, and Responding to UNC2452 Intrusions

UNC2452, the threat actor behind the SolarWinds SUNBURST supply chain attack, is one of the most advanced, disciplined, and elusive threat actors Mandiant has ever investigated. UNC2452’s operators have a mastery of both offensive and defensive skills. We will discuss their tradecraft observed in several victim environments and discuss ways organizations can better defend their networks from these types of threat actors.
