As the unmasking of state actors becomes more common, both private and public sectors struggle to keep up with the evolving cyber threat landscape. This is further compounded by the pandemic which has significantly changed the way in which we work and access corporate and government networks. This session will review the latest tactics deployed by state sponsored hackers as well as organized crime groups. The challenge of effectively responding to major cyber incidents will be discussed – this will include engaging the relevant stakeholders and the response strategy and considerations around ransom negotiation and payment.

This webinar is supported by the Information Technology Security Community as part of Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
