Presented by

Kevin Haley (Director, Symantec Security Response) and Dick O’Brien (Senior Research Editor)

About this talk

The government sector has long been a prime target for cyber attacks, with foreign countries, political hacktivists and a host of other threat actors putting government organizations in their sights. Now, major cybercriminals are also increasingly focused on government organizations, knowing that the level of disruption they can cause allows them to hold their victims for ransom. Join Symantec's Kevin Haley and Dick O'Brien to hear about: • Current trends on cyber attacks • The risk posed by ransomware to government organizations • The current espionage threat landscape • What government sector organizations can do to protect themselves
