Last year was literally a record year for malware and cyberattacks.
One of the reasons: cybersecurity specialists and CISOs are in the middle of a perfect storm right now: huge numbers of attacks from sophisticated and unsophisticated hackers using unique exploits as well as packaged purchasable — or rentable — software packages. At the same time, we still have the distributed workforce and essentially perimeter-less networks for work, connectivity, collaboration, and data-sharing that Covid accelerated, plus ongoing changes from the ongoing transition from on-prem to cloud and SaaS.
In other words: a perfect cybersecurity storm.
I’m moderating a webinar on that today for my client Open Systems, based in Switzerland. Panelists are:
- John Oltsik, Senior principal analyst, ESG
- Dave Martin, VP, Managed Detection and Response, Open Systems
Our threat envelopes have expanded 1000X. Attacks with purchased hacking kits are up 40%. Most IT teams don’t know about 10-20% of the devices their colleagues use.
It’s 2022, and it’s the perfect storm for cybersecurity. Sign up for this webinar to get the answers you need to defend your systems and your business.
