Time: 1:00PM – 2:00PM ET

While making current mainstream news, nation-state cyber attackers have been and continue to be very active in cybersecurity attacks. Surprisingly, enterprises are the primary targets from nation-state adversaries and other cybercriminals, while critical infrastructure and government entities remain important targets.

The 2022 F5 Labs Application Protection Report analyzed 980 breaches in the US over the past year. The report notes that not only did ransomware grow in frequency, but non-encrypting malware also grew even more rapidly. Both cases showed heavy use of exfiltration to remove data from victims’ environments. What was once old-fashioned malware infection has become a cash-crop for cyber-criminals in the form of ransom payment demands for either encrypted data or to prevent data leakage. The attacker innovation of these attacks lies in the monetization strategy, and delivering protection for customers' networks, users, and data requires detecting and defeating the tactics and methods attackers employ. We’ll look at what our data shows about how cybercrime innovation is driving these dangerous new trends, as well as the latest technology required to mitigate and defeat today’s much more sophisticated ransomware, malware, and other threats.

*A $25 food gift card will be given to all attendees to thank you for joining us.
