State of Cyber Security in 2016 – A bleak outlook?

Date: February 25, 2016
Location: The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto
Time: 11:30 am Registation & Networking -12 pm Lunch & Presentation

If 2015 was heralded as the “Year of the cyber breach” (as was 2012, 2013 and 2014), one can predict with certainty that cybercriminals will only continue to make the front page of the news in 2016.  Major attacks on OPM, Anthem and Experian, to name a few, not only suffered serious losses in terms of profits and reputational damage, but significant security and operational costs.  Even cyber security companies, such as Kaspersky and Hacking Team, have become targets.

This presentation will discuss the current threat landscape and how it’s continually evolving. We’ll provide a “behind the scenes” look using real world examples of cases we worked on in 2015 and provide our thoughts and recommendations to help keep your organization stay out of the media spotlight.
