August 2021: T-mobile said that it fell prey to a sophisticated cyberattack affecting its 40 million customers.
These are examples of some data breaches that happened in 2021. Since last few years, number of data breaches & their impact has been growing, and the trend continued in 2021 as well. The average cost of data breaches in 2021, a whopping $4.24 Million, broke the previous ceiling!
With every passing year, attackers are becoming bolder in their techniques and are targeting organizations with increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks. Which makes it imperative for organizations to regularly review their cyber security posture and update it to foil the next wave of attacks.
In this presentation, we will share current state of cyber-attacks and discuss the new generation protection mechanisms that can assist organizations in thwarting these attacks.
Some of the key takeaways from this session will be:
1. Why Breach prevention is needed.
2. Attack techniques used in latest data breaches.
3. Different tools/techniques to safeguard against the new age cyber-attacks.
