China’s ‘2025’ strategy to steal and degrade western economic power affects any enterprise that generates high-margin value and/or is in the same supply chain with those that do. The world has not seen such intense and pervasive nation-state aggression since the Cold War.
Reports of covertly adding chips to motherboards for industrial espionage require CISO’s to ask their peers and teams ‘what are the Chinese actually doing to steal data from organizations like ours’ and ‘what should we be doing to counter their efforts’? Enterprises targeted by China can get the answers and insights they seek from the panel Carahsoft and AppGuard have assembled. Hosted by Mike Lyons of CBS News, it features experts from the intelligence community, cybersecurity policy, and cybersecurity technology.
Google recently stated that none of its 80,000 employee accounts using their Titan Security Key has been compromised since deployment.

Read on to learn more about how your different authentication mechanisms depend on endpoint protection as well as the one capability you need for this but may have never heard about.
