From the last few years, it’s clear that cyber is the preferred tool adversaries use against one another for financial and political gain. Nation-state actors have a unique advantage over other adversaries since they have arguably unlimited resources to accomplish their mission – Sam Curry – Cybereason
As we find ourselves amid a global pandemic with cyber-criminals taking full advantage of phishing and malware attacks, preying on users, and the simple but lethal user errors, we mustn’t forget about other online attacks. Geopolitical issues and nation-state cyber-attacks are also on the rise and it’s important to be aware they are indiscriminate, with the attackers becoming more refined and more skilled. Taking steps to protect your organization has never been more important.
In this free event supported by Exponential-e, find out more about the ever-changing and emerging threats from cybersecurity in geopolitics and how developing technologies will eventually trickle down to affect us all.
