A look at critical infrastructure and the why and how nation state actors exploit data.
Audience will learn how and why they would be a target against cybercrime and nation-states. The presentation (panel discussion) dives into who and what the targets are, where they are coming from, what the threats are, the motives behind the threat, how they exploit, the associated consequences and risks associated with cybercrime.
The learning objectives are:
• Understanding why you are a target, and the associated threats and motives
• What methods are being used by the ‘bad guys’ (cyber actors, criminals, nation-states)?
• What can your organization do to be prepared when a cyber incident happens?
My intelligence background gives me a unique perspective when teaching others to protect their data.
