Webroot, the market leader in intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, today announced it will participate as a sponsor at Colorado Cybersecurity Convening taking place in Denver, May 19. The inaugural convening, hosted in partnership with the Colorado Cybersecurity Consortium, will elevate Colorado’s reputation as a center of cybersecurity innovation and promote a vibrant, interconnected ecosystem of Colorado-based technology organizations.
According to the Webroot 2015 Threat Brief, an average of nearly 900 phishing attempts are detected per financial institution and over 9,000 attempts are detected per technology company. With such a significant increase in cybersecurity incidents, the event will connect and facilitate communication between Colorado CISOs, solution providers, and infrastructure partners focused around top cybersecurity challenges and opportunities.
