Evolving Threats & Defences

  • Paul Henry
  • Saturday, January 9th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

For nearly two decades defenders have fallen into the "Crowd Mentality Trap." They have simply settled on doing the same thing everyone else was doing, while at the same time attackers have clearly evolved both in terms of malware delivery vectors and attack methodology. Today our defenses focus primarily on the gateway and upon attempting to outwit attacker's delivery methods. This leaves us woefully exposed and according to a recent Data Breach Report has resulted in 3,765 incidents, 806 million records exposed, and $157 billion (USD) in data breach costs in only the past six years. This presentation will highlights recent / current developments in the evolution of both attacks and defenses.
