Prevent Tomorrow’s Threats, Today!

Preventing cyber threats in a fully digitalized complexed atmosphere appears to be an uphill task. In this challenging environment, mitigating cyber risks in financial services and prevention of data leakage are paramount. So, is the wholistic look at cyber security in the IOT era, especially when multiple social networks compete the sphere.

While preventive measures are utmost important, digital forensic dynamics play a key role in investigating and prosecution of cyber criminals.

Mesmerized with digital technology, many people are deploying IoT devices today at their living and work spaces at a rapid pace; but they often pay scant attention to the security of these systems. Unpatched and unmonitored IoT devices present
attackers with opportunities to infiltrate networks.

Meanwhile, the advent of network-based ransomware crypto worms eliminates the need for the human element in launching ransomware campaigns. And for some adversaries, the prize isn’t ransom, but destruction of systems and data.

Self-propagating malware is dangerous and has the potential to take down the Internet, according to Cisco threat researchers. Adversaries are also becoming more adept at evasion—and weaponizing cloud services and other technology used for legitimate purposes.

Cybercriminals are also adopting attack channels that rely on legitimate Internet services like Google, Dropbox, and GitHub. The practice makes malware traffic almost impossible to identify.

Thus, the seventh annual Cyber Security Summit explores our path towards Preventing Tomorrow’s Threat Toda
