Sourcefire Introduces “Chalk Talks” Series of Educational Cybersecurity videos

Sourcefire, Inc., a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announces the availability of Sourcefire Chalk Talks, a complementary collection of informative cybersecurity videos for IT practitioners and general public references.

The ongoing series will provide viewers with deeper, unbiased knowledge on essential cybersecurity topics, initially focusing on malware and network security.

The initial content creation for the video series is spearheaded by Sourcefire’s chief scientist in its cloud technology group, Zulfikar Ramzan.

According to Sourcefire Malaysia’s Country Manager, Ivan Wen that there is a gulf has developed between cybersecurity threats, which are increasing in sophistication, and the general public's limited perception of these threats.

“For this reason, Sourcefire developed Chalk Talks as a resource to bolster broader understanding of network security, malware and endpoint security, and cybersecurity in general.”
