Stop Blaming Russia & China for all Cyber Attacks

Presented by

Amar Singh, Joseph Carson

About this talk

Cyber-attacks can originate from anywhere, but there appears to be an unabated trend of pointing the finger on either "sophisticated attackers" or, more blatantly, naming and blaming nation-states like Russia, China and now North Korea (alright, maybe even Iran). The truth about attribution (who is the attacker) is often overlooked for something more dramatic, especially in situations where sensitive information or brand reputation is at risk. The tactic is simple. Switch the focus from internal bad practices and shift the blame to “sophisticated, nation states and or criminal gangs.” Lazy, but effective. Join Amar Singh and Joseph Carson, from Thycotic, as they both discuss the real reason behind why cyber attacks succeed (no - not because of Russia or China)and the steps you can take to make the job of hackers, both sophisticated and otherwise, much harder.
