Why Hackers Keep Winning

Presented by

Jon Hendren, Senior Security Researcher, UpGuard

About this talk

Cybersecurity is officially dead. Worldwide spending on security-related hardware, software and services rose to $73.7 billion in 2016 from $68.2 billion a year earlier, according to researcher IDC. This number is expected to approach $90 billion in 2018. Yet data breaches have been increasing steadily over the past five years. Simply adding more layers is not a sustainable approach. A deep understanding of your company and IT infrastructure is required. About the presenter: Jon is an IT security and cyber risk evangelist at UpGuard. He doesn't *like* like risk, he just likes talking about it. More importantly, he likes talking about how it intersects with business risk, and how an accurate picture of cyber risk is one of the most important steps organizations can take toward proper cyber resilience.
