Breach prevention in a rapidly evolving cyber security world
The threat of a cyber attack is increasing as tools and techniques become more complex and sophisticated. This is seeing attack volumes growing as criminals find new ways to expose and steal data - and their motivation can be political or criminal.
Half a billion personal records stolen or lost
In 2015, we saw a record-setting total of nine mega-breaches, and the reported number of exposed identities jumped to 429 million. But this number hides a bigger story. In 2015, more companies chose not to reveal the full extent of their data breaches. A conservative estimate of unreported breaches pushes the number of records lost to more than half a billion.
Preventing 2017 Cyber Attacks
The Future of Cyber Security Manchester looks to address these key issues ensuring organisations learn from this and kick start 2017 with a structured cyber strategy.
Some key facts from 2016 & 2015:
- Estimated global cost of cyber attacks annually has reached over $400billion
- Projected global costs of cyber attackes by 2019 is expected to reach $2.1trillion
- Average total cost of a data breach $3.8million (global)
- 1million web attacks against people each day
- Nearly 75% of all legitimate websites have unpatched vulnerabilities – putting us all at risk
These figures alone makes this a must attend conference providing you with the best ammunition to help combat cyber attacks in 2017.
