In the wake of large scale data breaches impacting every industry, businesses and even government agencies have been making significant strides to protect the confidential personal information of clients and employees. However, once preliminary planning occurs and a comprehensive written information security program is placed in writing, many businesses have a false sense of security. Proactive incident response planning is critical, thus, this interview session will focus upon the dangers of preparing for a cyber-attack by taking a “one off” project approach and the importance of integrating a cybersecurity program into the organization’s culture.

The interview will focus on how to take a “program approach” to cyber risk with support from the C-Suite, which includes designating a crisis team, training of employees and crisis team, tabletop exercises, and use of a reliable emergency notification system.

“The Growing DDoS Threat to your Business”

Stephen GatesStephen Gates
Chief Security Evangelist
Corero Network Security, Gold Sponsor
Read Bio

A common theme that rings true across all aspects of cyber security is that you are only as strong as your weakest link, and the attackers know this all too well. Hackers are intelligent, motivated and capable of some of the most sophisticated attacks we’ve seen to date. They want the highest return for the lowest amount of effort; they are poking holes and searching for vulnerabilities within your network security architecture and pointing their DDoS attack tools where you are most susceptible, and in ways that cause the most significant amount of damage.

This session reviews real world examples of DDoS attacks increasing in frequency and sophistication and the use of DDoS as a distraction for more nefarious data exfiltration purposes, based on findings from the Corero DDoS Trends and Analysis Report.
