What Hackers Know That You Don’t: Personal Data Edition

Presented by

Nathan Rowe, Chief Product Officer & Co-Founder, Evident

About this talk

The internet is a rapidly shifting landscape that continues to integrate with our daily life. Today, having an easily searchable online identity that is inseparable from your own is considered a boon both in and outside of the workplace, and is often considered essential to maintaining a modern social circle. Half of internet users recycle their passwords, a practice that’s been shown to present a significant security risk, especially when it comes to the possibility of a data breach. The volume of stolen data increased 40% from 2015 to 2016 alone. These numbers aren’t just because there’s more information out there, either. Hackers are getting smarter and there are significant incentives for cyber-criminals to engage in and traffic stolen records on a massive scale. Coordinated attacks that exploit fundamental flaws in current data storage practices are becoming more common. As the digital presence of a user increases through multiple online services, all vying for different pieces of personal information, so does the chance that the information they enter may be compromised. Even with relatively limited access, attackers can combine what they’ve obtained from now-infamous breaches with publicly available info to further compromise a user’s identity to various ends. In this webinar, we will share solutions to mitigate the increasing threats to digital identity theft, as well as outline some of the economic factors that perpetuate the underground industry capitalizing on those threats. This webinar will focus on: - Share insight into how and why hackers are motivated to steal information now more than ever - Discuss how businesses can build secure ecosystems that are founded on authenticity, but created to protect personal data with less friction and risk - Review ways that businesses should rethink their approach to handling personal data and defend against the threat of a data breach
