ASIS New England Security EXPO 2017
It’s never too late for a comeback – an in-depth look at cybercrime.
What did we learn from cybercrime in 2016? We’re losing the battle against it. During the last year, Yahoo confirmed one of the largest data breaches in history; foreign governments attempted to influence an American presidential election; Internet of Things (IoT) devices were the cause of a colossal distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack; the average recovery cost stemming from ransomware more than doubled; and total losses in the first three months of the year from this malware were around $209 million – on track for $1 billion in all of 2016. Just when we thought this disastrous year had ended, a Vermont electric company found traces of malware on its computers – the same malware found on DNC machines, for which the Russian government has been blamed. During this session, we will discuss the evolving world of cybercrime, the threats facing our organizations, and actions we can take right away to protect our friends, family, and businesses.
