September 12, 2022, Kitchener, ON – Rhyno Cybersecurity is pleased to announce that Rhyno’s very own Dan Duran, CTO and Risk Advisor, will be presenting as a keynote speaker at Elevate 2022 – Secure & Protect Stage on September 22, 2022.

The presentation titled “How to stop a cyberattack when your defences have failed” will explain the traditional cyber security model and its deficiencies, as well as introduce participants to a game changer in the industry: Managed Detection and Response.

“I’m delighted and honoured to have the opportunity to speak at the ELEVATE FESTIVAL 2022. It’s important that we share the success of our Managed Detection and Response technology and solutions to help protect companies,” says Dan Duran.

According to the 2021 Cost of a Data Breach report by IBM Security, it takes an average of 287 days to identify and contain a data breach. Dan will show examples of how Rhyno Cybersecurity shortens the intrusion gap to as low as 2 minutes and how companies can make MDR a vital part of their layered cyber defence strategy.

Presentation details are as follows: September 22, 2:05 PM at the SLC Jane Mallett Theatre, St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5E 1B4
