2018 Verizon DBIR and Federal Agencies: A Cyber Security Panel Discussion

Presented by

Craig Bowman, Vice President - Advanced Solutions, Verizon

About this talk

The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), now in its eleventh year, is an industry benchmark for information on cybersecurity threats. This year we looked at over 53K security incidents and 2,216 confirmed breaches. But what does it really mean for federal agencies? Join our panel of federal cyber security experts for a look at some of the key findings of the 2018 report: • Cybercrime can come in any shape or size, and not always in the form you’d expect. • State affiliated actors are prevalent threat actors against the public sector. • The average time gap between the first click on a phishing campaign and the first report to security? Longer than you think. • Ransomware was the top variety of malicious software in 2017. • The overwhelming majority of incidents fell into one of nine attack patterns — knowing these can help you mitigate the risks of a breach. Our panel: • Chris Gagne- ASAIC, Criminal Investigative Division, Cyber Forensics and Technology Unit, United States Secret Service • Matthew Noyes - Cyber Policy and Strategy Director, United States Secret Service • Bernard Wilson - Program Manager - Network Intrusion Responder (NITRO), United States Secret Service • Jeff Wagner- Associate Chief information Officer, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). • Marc Spitler- DBIR Author/Analyst, Verizon • Craig Bowman (moderator)- Vice President, Advanced Solutions Division, Verizon
